so im 17w and 3d. im the same weight as i was when i first got pregnant maybe i bit lighter at 151, everyday i weigh myself. i dont know what it is, but im terrified of gaining weight. my husband has started noticing it and im really embarassed. its not like im NOT eating but im limitiing myself. i dont want to bblow up. this is my 2nd child and with the 1st i gained 70 pounds, my babies father told me i let myself go and basically left me, so i guess it may be fear that my husband will leave. all i know is that in my mind i am just terrified of gaining alot of weight, ideally i would actually like to lose some weight and make it all belly. i cant stand the thought of losing who i have now, he is very wonderful. but my 1st sons father was wonderful at first too. then he turned very hateful. i had a scare at the beginning of my pregnancy, the doctor said my child was not pregressing correctly but were checking on that my next appointment. i dont want to be selfish but i seriously cant help thinking like i am. has any one experienced this, its starting to become an obsession. and i dont want to "get help" and really dont know the steps to if i wanted to. what would i even catagorize this as...so many questionsView Thread
my work stressed me out badly as well, i ended up on medication........for cramping. because it hurt so badly, my doctor basically just told me, get it filled and take it because it will be on the records if we have to take you out on short term disability. i agree doctors are way to quick to put us on medication. but as for work. i just made myself deal with it and made a personal decision of what was more important paing attention to things that make me mad or ignoring and being there for work and the money. its your own personal decision. but i wouldnt jump to take any medication.View Thread
im at 27 weeks now and i sit basically my entire shift (8 hours) with maybe 2, 15 minute breaks (with a lunch break) if i can stand not to use the restroom between breaks. recently my back has been KILLING me, its either middle or lower back and i cant really change positions too drastically or move around. im just wondering if anyone knows anything i can do to improve the pain. my options are limited i know but any suggestions would help at this point. ive only gained maybe 7lbs so far so im not sure why its so bad since the "added weight" isnt much so it shouldnt be causing this much pain.View Thread
