188 the last two days in a row. You have to understand, that at 14 weeks pregnant, it is so out of the norm for me to be losing weight. Usually by now I would for sure be up at least 7-10 pounds. My pregnancy book says you should gain a pound a week by now and for the rest of your pregnancy. I am not complaining, but, I rather control my weight with will power than with health issues.
I saw a surgeon today about my gallbladder. He told me to eat very plain, bland foods, and hang in there. Thanks buddy, that's a big help. He said they can and will do surgery on me if the pain keeps happening. Surgery has to be done in the 2nd trimester (which I am as of today! yay!). I really don't want it. The Priolsac seems to be helping a little (sometimes). So if I can I will tough it out for my sweet baby. I have an ultra sound on my gallbladder tomorrow to make it an official diagnoses, even though the ER did an ultrasound and found stones. But he said there is a chance it could look really good and maybe the pain is unrelated to the gallstones. My favorite thing he said, "You know....pregnant women get all kinds of belly aches." OH?? Like morning sickness? yeah I had that, it's not that. Like heart burn? Nope not that...constipation? NOT....and does a normal "Belly ache" make you almost pass out from the pain?? I don't think so mister. So since you have never been pregnant, let's not suggest you know the pain I feel. Um kay?? Thanks.
I'll update tomorrow after the appointment. Love you all for praying and thinking of me!!
Love, The Curvy Housewife
