Possible. I will call and ask.

I would get a differant doctor who could explain to you why it would be pointless to test for a thyroid problem during pregnancy since yours did not help!

What about problems with Pre E? Sometimes weight gain can be because of that... How is your salt intake? If it is to high you could be retaining water.
Mines always acted up during pregnancies. I do not do a lot of salt. And I use pink salt to so it doesn't cause a lot of the issues white salt does.

I'd call again and insist on seeing him now. If they won't make an appointment then start calling around to other OBs. Another option is to go into Emerg. Say you've been feeling funny and been very tired.
How is your iron intake? Maybe up that a bit.
I think I'm getting the recommended dose of iron, I do have some iron pills I could try and see if that helps. thanks.

Possible. My mom and half of the people on her side of the family are diabetic. I have noticed that when I don't eat something every 3 hours I get very sick feeling and get shaky and feel very very weird, which happens to my mom when her sugar drops.

Also, not sure if it is linked but before pregnancy I had major vison loss. I ended up in the er because everything went blurry several times. I'm a contacts wearer also. I ended up being seen by the eye doc and they said that the vison loss that I had they normally wouldn't see in older people of the course of YEARS. They thought it was from the Wellbutrin I started a couple weeks prior (to help kick the smoking habit I picked up during summer) so they told me to stop the Wellbutrin and come back in 2 weeks. Not much change. So I have to go back in the spring and if my ryes didn't improve (which I doubt they have...I can still barley read with contacts in) then I have to get those glasses with the lines (forgot what they are called haha). So I am beginning to think it wasn't the Wellbutrin since my eyes continue to worsen. Is that linked to diabetes also??
Thank my Motorola Electrify for any random words.
