Week 16 - aka "is that a little belly"?

16 stats:Pounds gained to date: -8. Ru-ro

Weeks until my next appointment: 2 days. Troy is working on some show on Monday so my lesbian baby momma (long story) Anne is going with me! I fully expect to get a lecture on weight loss, but I'm hoping the doc will have a solution for me. I want to be healthy and look like a freaking pregnant woman already!

I think I might be anemic and am looking forward to my appointment on Monday. I'm constantly dizzy and have a lot of bruises on my legs that weren't there before (hey, I'm just like my sis now!). When I stand up, I have a lot of stars in front of my eyes.

I have noticed that my belly is a lot rounder, and my belly button is no longer a slit, but kind of opening up a bit.

How I am feeling (on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being "dear god, I feel like walking death"): today: .25. Thursday night, 1. Thursday was a real challenge for me, but I've been feeling pretty good since then.

Here is an awesome exchange that took place between me and a really shallow coworker:
Shallow coworker: OMG, you're so skinny!
Me: well I've been throwing up for 8 weeks so it was bound to happen.
Shallow coworker: how much weight have you gained?
Me: I'm still down 8 lbs because I can't keep that much food down.
Shallow coworker: OMG, I hate you.

Um...body image issues much lady?

Im sure the doctor will have some ideas for weight gain and hopefully they can check you for anemia, too.

And ya know what? I think I DO see a little baby belly on ya. MUAH!

I don't think you'll get too much of a lecture. It's not like you're doing this on purpose! Just keep eating what you can. Bring on the belly!
