New here: Saw ob/gyn for the first time today.

My weight is: 227 (5 lbs less than health center said)
Heard baby's heartbeat for the first time. Its 158 bpm
Blood pressure is fine.
Fundus should be just above pubic bone (I'm 13 weeks 1 day) but mine is 14cm and just below my bellybutton (seen with 5 and 6 month pregnancies)
All bloodwork and urine tests are good.
NT results are normal, next one done at 15-19 weeks.
Need to see him once a week.
Need to get sugars under even tighter control.
He referred me to a dietician.
I am 38, diabetic, overweight and have asthma.

I'm new here as well. I notice nobody really posts on here so maybe it will just be the 2 of us. I weighed in at 263 at my first appointment and at my last appointment which was almost 17 weeks I was down to 246. I weighed myself today and I am back up to 251 so putting on weight now and I am already at that point where it is hard to breathe even when I'm laying down. I am getting worried about later on in the pregnancy. I walk as much as possible but it's so hard when I feel like I'll pass out at any second.
