@Resurgam.... In pregnancy woman get cravings, I am a low carber... but I would LOVE to have that large bag of Doritos and dip next to me... see how much I share! I hope you don't say that close to her because it would be really upsetting for her. It is hard being judged especially for a pregnant woman who is already vulnerable and hormonal. I cut my mum out for saying stuff like that close to me, it hurt that when I treated myself (which was once in a while) she would make a huge deal out of it and make out like I was killing myself and my baby... I am 6 months on Wednesday and she still doesn't know I am pregnant, as a good advice and not being nasty I would try to be understanding and supporting, if the midwives and doctors don't have a problem neither should you... if you would like to stay involved to the extent you would like!!! The original post was about metformin and the use and side effects in pregnancy, maybe we should stick to the topic!?
