I've been having trouble eating enough as well; the diet they have me on is a lot more carbs than I am used to (I used to eat very low carb) but I guess it's helping keep my fasting sugar lower. As for a chiro, check your insurance because some will cover it. Mine supposedly does but I just got a huge bill from the chiro for stuff ins wouldn't cover, and I think it would have cost me less to pay OOP rather than my co-pay plus all this that they wouldn't cover. Oh well. It's totally worth it, IMO. I would not be able to walk if I wasn't doing it. to you too...this is a drag!

I just realized we are due a few days apart!
DD#1 goes to school now, so most of the day I have two. I kinda feel bad though b/c I wanted to home school, but I was so nauseous at the beginning I just wasn't doing anything with her for school. DH and I finally decided that we should send her to school. I am glad that she really enjoys it, and has a good teacher.
I think I will look into seeing a chiropractor, just got to make myself actually check into it though!

I think this is a good idea. I actually have hypothyroid, but I haven't need to adjust my thyroid medicine so far, my levels have been good. My iron levels were slightly low. I just started taking some extra iron. I get blood were at least every month, and with seeing the high risk docs and my regular OB, it sometimes end up being more often than once a month.
