  3. You know I am just now finding out proper nutrition for my baby, and I have 3 months left. I feel so horrible my doctor hasn’t been helping me with how I eat. I have been gaining too much weight but she just tells me to lower my calorie intake so I do. And I eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m full. I feel like such a horrible mom. I feel like my dr could have helped me more and today I had to leave work because I am so light headed and feel like I’m going to pass out and she just told me to drink more water but I drink more than enough water. Anyone else struggle with this because I just feel horrible.
