Sick and Gaining Weight?

Ya'll I have been SO sick. Can't keep a lot of what I'm eating down, especially the first 1/2 of the day. And sure can't keep down water. If I do keep it down, I haven't eaten much of it to begin with 'cause I just don't feel like it. I know some of you are probably with me on this.

But, is anyone else GAINING weight even though they are eating less than ever????

I've gained 2 pounds!! And yet, I've already determined I don't want to gain ANY weight if I can possibly help it, because I'm starting out about 80 lbs over my ideal. UGH!!

It could just be water retention even though you're not keeping anything down.

I'm eating nearly everything in sight so it's no surprise that I've put on 3 lbs in about 2 weeks.

Sorry you're so sick! Have you tried taking unisom at night! That's what keeps me from throwing up. I wouldn't worry about the weight. Like the pp said, it could be fluids. I know your blood volume even increases. I hope you start feeling better soon though!

Actually I felt better today! Still didn't want to eat really, but wasn't super sick either. Yay!!

But then I worry...lol....so contradictory!
