Well, after all the hysterics of the glucose tests I of course have normal sugar levels so I can still keep eating the sweet stuff. Though given that I currently get heart burn when I eat chocolate and cookies my nibbling on treats has somewhat been curtailed. The blood work did highlight that I am anemic – not a huge surprise as I am sure that the Cylons are strip mining me for nutrients. So I am now on slow release iron tablets, and anyone who has had iron supplements knows that they have a tendency to slow your digestive track down so it is back on the warrior fruit (prunes).

Every morning I waddle onto the bathroom scales, and then I tell Alex who is tracking my weight gain on a spreadsheet. It’s not that we are obsessing we just that we want to make sure that I’m steadily gaining enough weight. I’ve always been on the slim side, and at my 11 week appointment I’d only gained 2lbs. I’d been eating more but battling hideous nausea, and I’ve never really “gained” weight before.
Roll your eyes all you want it’s just the way I’m built. I’ve always eaten what I wanted (overall fairly balanced but I’ve never said no to cake or french fries) but I enjoy working out and kept pretty active (I love to walk). When I hit 30 I needed to tone up more but I’ve never really had to work at losing weight as it has always been fairly constant. I guess my eating philosophy is inline with ‘Why Do French Women Not Get Fat’ but with more cake, less wine and a few pilates and spin classes thrown into the mix.
