I have a good reason for not posting yesterday...I have been in a bit of a rut this week. Not only have I come down with a cold, but when I went to the doctor on Tuesday she told me that I was gaining too much weight. Um, excuse me? I surely can't be the hugest pregnant person ever, right? I am still exercising plus my belly always measures the right size. I have been uber-frustrated this week trying to figure out what to do about it. Not that there can be a ton done about it, except hopefully slow down the weight gain a bit.
She recommended that I go on a diabetic "diet" where I cut some carbs and fruits with lots of natural sugar and bulk up on protein and veggies...and make any carbs whole grain ones. Uh. I don't really want to! It isn't like I am eating a bunch of bad stuff- my main craving is canned peaches- and I thought pregnancy was the one time I wasn't going to have to be watching my calories and such. As it turns out, now I am more concerned about my weight than I was before I was pregnant. Nuts.
So what do you think? Has this happened to anyone else? If it is really something that needs to be done for the baby that is fine but if it is just so I have less to lose later, I want to worry about that when the time comes and just enjoy pregnancy (and the holidays, hello!) As if my emotions weren't on overdrive anyway, this has really put me through the ringer this week...I have been angry, depressed, confused, frustrated, determined, apathetic, defiant, and most definitely cranky.
I am still unsure of what I should do about it...any thoughts?
