Eating for 2?
Where is my appetite? Nathan is supposed to be gaining 1/2 pound per week until around week 37. Since late last week I have not had much of an appetite at all. I actually lost one of the two pounds that I gained in my 7th month of pregnancy. I’ve only gained 11 pounds and I’m starting my 8th month! The picture above is from right before we left for a cookout with some friends of ours. At the cookout, I mentioned we’re expecting and several people looked down and said, “You’re pregnant?” It’s upsetting.
I’ve always had bouts of just not being hungry for as long as I can remember. It comes with the territory when you’re blessed with a rotten GI system. I just never expected it to happen while expecting. So I’ve started drinking Ensure plus again to help me meet the nutritional requirements. I’ve been fighting nausea and making myself eat a bite or two whenever I think of it because every little bit counts. I think it may just be that Nathan is pushing up on my stomach, making me feel full more quickly than normal. I have another sonogram next week to check on his growth. Hopefully it will show that he is gaining weight and growing as he should.
