alasselina9's Journal, 11 December 2013

Well, so much for the weight loss plan for now -- pregnant people are not advised to lose weight. Not in a million years did I ever anticipate that I was healthy enough to get pregnant (otherwise I would have taken strides to prevent it, because I NEVER wanted to be unhealthy like this and responsible for another life). Everything I had ever seen, heard, and read always had said women with PCOS would have a hell of a time conceiving and would have to go through fertility treatments and in vitro and such. So much for that. Even though I was never 100% sure I wanted kids in the first place, I'm happy. And my husband is REALLY happy. I never wanted to have kids after 30, so the timing is perfect. Still, it's been a major bitch. The doctor diagnosed me with gestational diabetes, so I'm now back on here trying to make sure my carbs don't get out of control. The doctor says I will need to have gained 10-15 lbs. by the end of the pregnancy, but the last thing I want to do is add more weight. I understand why they want me to, but it is not what I want to do. I've actually lost about 8 lbs. since I got pregnant. I wasn't trying to, but my appetite has been almost non-existent for the past few months, but from here on out, I'm supposed to start gaining. I guess I'll just have to hope that when the baby is born, most of that weight will have just been the baby, placenta, retained water, etc. I don't want to have to feel like I'm just taking steps backward.

My sister had gestational diabetes and once she changed her diet and started watching her carbs she didn't gain any more weight during her pregnancy, but you could tell she "lost" weight everywhere but her belly, especially her face, hips and thighs. When she went home after having the baby she was 15 lbs. less than when she got pregnant. Congratulations by the way!
