I’ve been off my meds for about a week. I’m having some withdrawals which include nausea and headaches. I rarely get headaches so it’s been tough dealing with them on a daily basis. I’m coping very well except for the aforementioned.
It’s the hair loss, not associated with the meds, that has been difficult. So sad. I love my hair and now, it has dwindled down to very little. I am, by no means, bald bald but ugh. I may have to go and cut my hair short until this phase passes.
One of the side effects of one of the many medications I’m currently taking is weight gain. I’m about 10 lbs. shy of reaching my pre-pregnancy weight. If I keep eating the way that I have, I’ll reach it in just a matter of days.
What’s harder than being a pregnant diabetic? A diabetic with a newborn. I can’t remember the last time I checked my blood sugar. I need to get back on that horse because I’m sure my A1C is no longer 5.4.
I hope one day my son will forgive me for showing pictures of his junk to everyone I have come in contact today. Yea, you read that right. I’m having a boy.
Everything is looking great. I haven’t gained any weight. My weight loss remains at 11 lbs., which given all the things I’m not allowed to eat not only because of the pregnancy but also because of the diabetes, is ok. The kid is looking great. We are happy and excited now that we know who we’ll be preparing for.
