I also ended up drinking nearly a gallon of water/Crystal Light. Increased fluid intake + pregnant = mucho bathroom trips! I got up 4 or 5 times during the night thinking I was about to explode if I didn't get to the bathroom NOW.
I feel much more in control. I am just going to keep doing that. Logging food. Drinking fluids.
It feels so good to finally be back in the driver's seat. Don't worry about the weight- it will do what it wants, but don't encourage it to get out of control. Eating a whole cheesecake pie and a half a dozen donuts isn't benefiting me or the baby. Being conscious of eating every few hours, keeping myself occupied instead of bored? That's what will benefit both of us.
