Pregnancy & Parenting False Positive? Jun 05 2009

Just got back from the doctor and....

 

 

IT WAS A FALSE POSITIVE!!!!!

 

They ran the test again today, twice, and both were negative.  Also the fact that I started my period the day I expected it and the 3 negative home tests made the doctor confident enough to prescribe the birth control that I asked for before the positive Laughing

Thank you for your replies.  The bleeding is very much like my menstrual bleeding -- very heavy and it is right when I was expecting it to come as well.

I also thought it was strange that they detected it from a urine sample 3 days after my first time having sex.  I knew that you could get pregnant the first time, I was just surprised, you know?

I will go in today for another test and see what happens, but I'm very nervous :(

Weight Gain Weight Gainers: What did YOU eat today? Dec 05 2008

Hey guys!  I was wondering if you would mind me joining for a bit Laughing

I landed myself in the hospital this past week and have been on the WORST diet ever.  No veggies, no fiber, low protein...only refined carbs.  That's all I was ALLOWED to eat!!! Cry  Needless to say that was one of the hardest things I've done.

Now that I am out of the hospital they are telling me I need to gain some weight.  I may have an appointment with a dietitian soon, but until then (and after too) I could really use some support and tips!  The last 2 days have been my first for gaining weight, and I have pretty much just gotten depressed and binged through both of them.  Tomorrow I should be allowed to expand my diet a bit more, but not too much, and I want to start gaining with healthy foods and in a healthy way.  I would like to add exercise too, but how on earth can I when I feel so full all the time?!  (The doctor said the exercise is a good idea I just have to make sure to eat enough for it)


Anyways just thought I'd say hi since I'm new here Tongue out

Thank you for  your replies!


I haven't had my period for the past 1.5 years, so that must be why she wants me to gain weight.  I want to do it because I just want to be healthy!

I am a little nervous though!  I have told myself (and my mom so she can help me) that I binged today but I WILL NOT DO IT TOMORROW!


I want to gain weight in a healthy way...not by binging.  Thanks again guys.  I am thinking about joining a support group on here..any recommendations?

I'm 18, 5'4", 118-120 lbs, I do circuit training with 5 lb weights about 2-3 times per week and I eat about 2100-2300.  I still haven't gained and I'm tempted to bump it up and see if I can still maintain on a higher amount Wink I don't wanna push my luck though! haha

Thank you for your response! I do not know if my calories really balance out...I think they do but I find I get EVEN MORE obsessed when I track protein/carb/fat ratios!

My day today looked like this:

Breakfast: oatmeal with banana, ground flaxseed, and peanut butter, a glass of milk, and an apple.

Lunch: whole wheat tortilla with lettuce, turkey breast, and mustard, a hardboiled egg, an apple, cucumber slices and celery sticks.


Dinner: oatmeal with broccoli, spinach, garlic, and hot sauce stirred in, then either a salmon fillet, tilapia fillet, or piece of tempeh.


Snacks:

peanut butter mixed with cottage cheese, yogurt, and puffed millet (twice..so good!)

cucumber slices, celery and carrot sticks, and a glass of milk

an apple with cottage cheese

cottage cheese with turkey breast and turkey pepperoni

corn thins with flax and some more pepperoni

Yeahh there was more today but...I don't want to write it all =X

I would like to think that's somewhat balanced though...I make sure to eat protein, fats, and carbs..just not really in a certain ratio.

Gum, coffee, and puzzles get me through! haha

Happy Sweet Sixteen oxymoron00 =D How exciting!

You seem to have the idea -- an occasional day of over/under eating won't do much damage, just make sure it isn't a regular thing and try not to let it happen again!  We all have our busy days but you need to make time for yourself!  Your health won't put itself on hold just because you're busy ;)

I realized I haven't posted for a while haha so here's today (so far and what I plan the rest to be)

Breakfast: Oatmeal with banana, PB and ground flaxseed stirred in

*I had to go to work for a couple hours for a meeting...there was chocolate milk and huge bagels..which just happens to be a weakness of mine...but I RESISTED!!!! =D*

Snack: Cucumber with hummus

Snack: Protein Shake (protein powder, banana, milk)

Lunch: Oatmeal with broccoli and spinach stirred in, organic soy tempeh

Snack: Apple with PB dip (PB whipped with tofu), celery sticks, chocolate almond milk

Dinner: Turkey wrap (tortilla, farmer's cheese, turkey breast, lettuce), apple

Snack: Cottage cheese with PB stirred in

I have enough free space that if I'm still hungry I may throw another protein shake in tonight...I found a way to make it SOOO creamy and thick (it was just like a triple thick milkshake =D)

I'd recommend calling them or contacting them in some way, but if that's not an option then puzzles are good.  Jigsaw puzzles, logic puzzles...Sudoku..they all keep your mind busy.  I keep 1000 piece puzzles around for those times and when I need to get my mind off of food!

Also, you could volunteer somewhere and get out around people.  I have been feeling very lonely lately so I adopted 2 kittens and I am going to begin volunteering at that animal shelter.  You could volunteer to serve meals to the homeless, clean up parks, etc.  Wait...are you not ALLOWED to leave?

I'm going to say something to her...even though it's near impossible to convince her to see something someone else's way.  I think she's just being really immature and they aren't her cats.  I don't mean to talk bad about my mom but she seriously acts like a child sometimes.

Hah well I'm a little mad right now..I bet I'm just being dumb though!

I called my mom and told her what I named them (she will be living here with them too) and she was just like, "ugh...oh..well I guess I'll just have to make up my own names for them then.."

I'm just kinda feeling like, well..they're MY cats, the first things I'VE ever bought and payed for everything myself and I am taking care of by myself..so I should get to name them myself.

Is it stupid that it upsets me that she's just going to give them different names because she isn't fond of what I named them..?

Carrots, cucumbers, peanuts, apples, cereal, my version of a horchata (I built up lots of cals yesterday in those...which is kinda hard to do!..for most =P) popcorn, pumpkin, pizza, and soy crisps.  I don't keep some in the house anymore because I just seriously can't handle it, but the others I can sometimes manage to control myself!

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
