I am 18 weeks pregnant today (with twins, if you haven’t heard already) 😉 I still weigh less than I did before I got pregnant, but I definitely have a rapidly expanding baby belly .. how does that happen?? The only thing I can assume is everything I put in my mouth goes straight to these babies. 🙂 As of our last sonogram (last week) they are both measuring right on track, so I’m guessing all is well for now. 🙂 My dr said I should be gaining about a pound a week.. but yeah… that isn’t happening.
Another factor is that I’m hardly ever hungry. I’m not sick (*knock on wood*) but I just don’t have room to eat. I try to eat a few smaller meals throughout the day, but even the slightest snack makes me feel like I’ve eaten a 10 course meal. And there is another problem with that – I bolus for a meal, and have no idea going into it, how far I’ll get before I can’t put anything else in my mouth .. I try to make sure I still get enough carbs to cover the insulin, but sometimes I have dropped afterwards because of this.
So I have doctors orders to have a “caloric free for all” as he put it .. but I am always too full to take advantage. lol
