She knows I am panicking about my weight and not getting GD or Pre-E, so not gaining as much as I did with DD, especially since I'm starting out about 12 or so pounds more than with her. Right now, in comparison to where I was with DD at 16 weeks, I'm 10 pounds more.
Anyway, she said to stick to 1800-2000 cals. I told her I was doing 2200 and she said that's ok, but with my low metabolism and age and so forth, it'll be better health wise to stick to the lower end of the 2000's or even high teens...
So, I am going to revise some of my choices to work within that 1800-2000 range. I think I can do it. She said do not starve myself, by all means, but just choose wisely
Have you asked your doc for specifics like this? Just curious to what they advise... Her thoughts and advice make great sense for my hypothyroidism and age.

I haven't talked specifics with my doctor, but I have been counting my calories and have usually been in the 1800-2000 range. Some days are better and around 1600, some days have been as bad as 2400 (like if we go out). In the last week or so I have been able to eat less because I have had less nauseous moments.
