Weight Struggles Times TwoNovember 18, 2011
So... no one in this house seems to be able to get their weight to change much.
Lily is gaining, but SLOWLY! At her 2 month checkup on Wednesday she was 7 lbs 11 oz. She is currently on Prilosec for reflux, and while it has helped some, overall the reflux seems to be worse lately. She often refuses to eat and when she does eat she will squirm and complain like we are torturing her. And now the projectile vomiting has started. I would be lying, if I didn't admit that I am worn out and stressed beyond belief from all of this. I guess I assumed having the pregnancy from hell would give us an easier time on the other side, but as you can see this certainly hasn't been the case. Yesterday Lily had an upper GI study, which didn't show anything that would require surgery.
Today we are headed to see a speech therapist for some of the aversion to eating issues. I really hope we can find something that helps her soon! I feel like the time to enjoy her during these early months is slipping away, and find myself sad.
As for me... well... my weight this week is really barely better than last week. I am down .2. Which makes an overall loss over 2 weeks .1 of a pound (yes, that is a point in front of the 1). Mathematically it doesn't even make sense, because I'm definitely taking in enough reduced calories to equal at least a 1-2 pound loss, and yet I lose .2. Very frustrated and down about it, and with all the stress regarding Lily's reflux and eating issues, I just don't have the energy to even deal with it all right now.
As stressed, exhausted, and frustrated as I am right now. I am so incredibly thankful every morning to kiss my sweet little girl's head, that for those moments it all just melts away!
