I was 148 when I got pregnant and when I went to the doctor last at 8 weeks I was 151. Well now the scale is varying anywhere between 148 and 154!!!! So I have either stayed the same weight or gained SIX pounds already. I'm really wigging out. I don't want to be unhealthy and my doctor said I should only gain 20 pounds total. Well if I've already gained 6 pounds and I'm not even out of the first trimester then that is not good at all. Could I just be retaining a lot of water? I'm trying really hard to watch what I eat but it's hard...my doc has me doing the 6 small meals throughout the day but I feel like I'm starving by the time the day is over and lately I've been caving and getting chipotle. So I've been taking in about 2,000 calories a day...is that too much? I just feel so huge and scared that I'm going to be unhealthy during this pregnancy. I've been trying to walk an hour each night but it's so dang hot out and by the time the sun goes down I'm afraid to go out just my daughter and I and my fiance works late.
Please be nice :( I'm feeling really uncomfortable/vulnerable/flat out upset
