Irony
I have to test for ketones every morning, what with the hyperemesis and all.   Ketones, apparently, are not good for baby.  Until I started getting IV fluids with dextrose in them every day, I was spilling ketones like mad (150+).  I'm sure that contributed to my very rapid weightloss in the beginning of this pregnancy, and I'm sure having stopped the ketosis is the largest contributor of me having been able to remain relatively stable since.

Anyway, I got a new box of the ketosis test strips this week and I note, with some irony, that it highlights on the box, "Great for a low-carb lifestyle!"

Now that is an understatement if I've ever heard one!


 
Speaking of iron, my iron is still low and my OB practice is encouraging me to keep taking those iron supplements. You know, the ones I can't keep down on account of the hyperemesis? Yeah, those.

But think of all the plastic that died for her IVs. Terrible!
