Posted over on the high risk board. I was diagnosed with GD last week. First I was so upset, than shocked, now depressed. I am 100% depressed. I went to have a "snack" today, and I could have 1/4 a cup of peanuts or 1/2 a cup of cucumbers (exactly 5 slices) WHO THE HELL are they kidding?! I'm STARVING! STARVING. I am GROWING A HUMAN BEING INSIDE ME. 5 Cucumbers isn't going to cut it. I could have had 7 crackers with a smidge of humus... oh that's a huge improvement. I'm so hungry, so upset, so depressed. I HATE THIS. I can't eat like this. Breakfast... than a snack, than lunch, than a snack, than dinner. That's not how I eat, it's not how it fits into my schedule to eat, and I'm FRUSTRATED.I know I know I know, this is for the good of my baby. I have 9 weeks to go, and I have only gained 11 pounds. How BIG do they fear this baby will be? :( My blood pressure is great. I'm already upset about Thanksgiving. What can I eat? 1/4 a cup of green beans? while everyone else eats mashed potatoes and gravy...and I sit there wanting to cry.Maybe I'm being hormanal, but please - tell me I am not alone feeling lke this. I hate this with every fiber of my being.I want to eat normal and not have to measure every ounce I put in my mouth. I want to fill up this pit of hunger I have with FOOD, not "pretend" food. Talk me down. Please :(
Been Trying since April 2011. Went to an RE on 10/31/11, Had a Follow up appt after a bunch of FUN tests, on 12/5. DX w/hypothroidism (common after having a child) Put me on Levothyroxine on 1/5 and two months later, we have a jellybean! I'm shocked. All because of my stupid thyroid.
