I am in full panic mode....
I just weighed myself. 6 pounds up. Holy crap! I know its Christmas but ... HOLY CRAP! The nurse warned me about the pills I was on. She said they will create havoc with weight gain and because of that I haven't really gone wild on the eat anything front. I guess its back to the watchful approach. When I was on bed rest I only went up by less than a pound so its just over the past week that this has happened. I was told to watch the sodium and sugar intake, I shall have to do better.
I sound like a skinny new yorker but I have the opposite problem. I can only gain up to 20 pounds throughout the pregnancy according to Dr J's chart in the waiting room. I shall ask her about the steroid I am on since that would seem to be the main culprit. 6 frikkin pounds. WTF!!
The nurse came yesterday to give me my shots. She told me that my second beta looked fine (she couldn't remember the number!!) but my progesterone was low. As soon as she said that I started mentally preparing for the worst. IF protection mode kicking in. Anyone out there got any anecdotes to share that might put my mind at ease?
