I just got put on metformin. Wow this stuff is making me feel like hell… But I have been having a really hard time with this whole diet (lifestyle change) It sucks the stuff I can eat I don't want to the stuff I can't I crave sooooo bad. Ugh I didn't want to suddenly have to change my whole life. I did good for like a week and had a 3 pound loss. Would be a good thing if I were not 7 months pregnant. When I met with the diatitian she was all how are you feeling?. I'm like HUNGRY I feel like I'm starving!!! I never realised food is like some kind of drug for me. So looking at my sugars for the week she decided it would be a good idea to start metformin. Thanks to my dumb insurance it took a week and a half to even get and I had ran out of test strips oh what do you know my insurance didn't want to cover those either! So I'm waiting for over a week and growing more annoyed by the day. I have insurance to be able to be healthy right? Finally it came through I started it this morning and By the evening I'm moving into my bathroom for an extended stay. My belly hurts so bad and I feel like I could throw up at any moment I've been told this should only last a week and will be worth it. Thats great but right now all I can see is it getting worse before it gets better and I really was already feeling like I couldn't take anymore. I kinda lost control the other day and went to the buffet I know it was bad but I just reached a breaking point. I tried to be cautious about my choices that made for the worst trip there ever lol It was like a big tease but it felt good to slip a little and get it out of my system I feel like I can get back to buisness now. I have to have three appointments a week at the hospital now to monitor baby. I have my first growth ultrasound on monday to make sure she is not to big because of the diabetes. We scheduled my induction date. My lil Alyssa will be here Dec 16! It will be such a relief to not be pregnant anymore. And be able to hold my lil girl. I'm so tired of feeling like I'm going to hurt my daughter because I have diabetes. I really hope this medication helps and that I start feeling better quick.
