I had my 28 week checkup yesterday (i'll be 29 weeks tomorrow) but anyways I've been sick this past week and litterly just feel like crap. There will be days I can't eat because i know it was make me sick. The previous 2 times I've been to the doctor my blood has been low.
Yesterday they weighted me first and i gained 5 pounds since 2 weeks ago. So that puts me at 132, im 5'3. My pre-pregnancy weight was 110 pounds. So , they didnt take my blood yesterday ( which I though was very odd since my blood is low) Then when the doc. asked me how i had been feeling I told him how sick I had been getting..... its answer
" Obviously you havn't been getting too sick , you gained 5 pounds" ..... And i told him yeah i know but I really just don't feel good , and eating makes me sick. Then he said " Well your eating something." He made comments through out the whole visit.
I thought what is with this guy? I was befudled at his comments and he didnt even care about me being sick, or about my blood being low and then not being checked.
So what do you think?? is it really that bad to gain 5 pounds? I mean, i know thats alot for one week, but is there a reason Im sick and still gaining?? ( He never answered my question)

What do you mean that your blood is low?? Low blood pressure or Low blood iron (anemic). Also if you are gaining weight then all is well. As far as feeling sick, that is a good sign and can come & go throughout pregnancy. You NEED to eat Small meals more often & not big meals. If you are anemic then they will suggest another iron supplement along with your Prenatal vitamin. If your blood pressure is low then you are probably not drinking enough fluids. Drink More Water. The Dr. did not say anything wrong.
