HCG and pregnancy...

Rate this Entry
Hello all!
I haven't been on this forum for quite some time. Summer has just entirely gotten away from me. A few weeks ago, I actually mixed up another batch of HCG, took drops the first day to load, then got swept away with kids/traveling/etc and never finished it. It was going to be my last round. Before I tried to start it again, I took a pregnancy test - Guess what... Lol I am 9 weeks as of today and have another ultrasound scheduled for next Monday.
This is my problem --- I am soooo sick the entire pregnancy, all day long, that I generally end up losing weight while I'm pregnant anyway. Even though I'm not intentionally trying to. Not great, but babies have been fine, which proves my theory about how HCG works anyway (pulls from the fat stores and takes care of the fetus...)
For some reason though, this time (Baby #4) I have already gained 10 pounds in the last 4 weeks that I've known I was pregnant. Not doing anything different than any other time, but it seems like everything I eat just STAYS! I have zero energy, I'm wiped out from the nausea and just praying that I could actually puke cause maybe it would help, but I never can.
Here are my specific questions regarding this:
1) Could the fact that I have used HCG in the past year as a weight loss tool affect the way my body deals with the real stuff? (The other 3 babies were pre-HCG...)
2) When on the diet, we stick with the approved foods because anything else, even good fats, other veggies, etc., will cause a gain. Therefore, even if I am eating a normal diet with protein, carbs, fats, etc., can I expect to gain an insane amount of weight like I would if there was no baby and I was just on the HCG? (Wow, that one was a tad confusing.)
3) Has anyone experienced anything like this because it's really starting to get to me...
Thank you in advance to anyone taking the time to help with this! Please believe me when I say I have no intention of dieting while I am pregnant. I am bound and determined to have a healthy baby, I am just trying to make sure I do not gain 50 lbs while I'm doing it!!
