My 2nd Fill

I had my 2nd fill appointment today! He only put in .5cc so, not a big one, but hopefully it will do something. That leaves me with a total of 4cc in a 14cc band.

I can tell you right now that my stomach is growling like MAD. Ugh. I need to go drink something.
Oh, and does anyone else have some crazy burping episodes right after a fill? Like, the kind of burps where you could practice reciting the alphabet? LOL

Today was kind of a frustrating day. It seems like all my weigh-in days are at bad times. This morning I woke up and knew that I was swollen and retaining a little water. Nature wouldn't come calling either! So, that just made the scale downright inaccurate. Plus, at the doctor's office, with all my clothes and shoes on, It adds a good 3lbs at LEAST. When I got home I weighed on my scale with shoes on and everything and I got the same reading as he did, so I know my scale is not whacked out - it was just my body today!

Anyway, I'll continue just remind myself that the doc office weigh-ins are not the be-all and end-all of the whole deal. He only sees me once per 4-6 weeks and I weigh myself everyday, so I am the only one who really knows what's going on!

By this evening I will be in my light-weight jammies, no shoes, and nature will have called upon me and the world (and the scale) will all be right again! LOL

Good luck with the fill. I am getting my first one on Monday, so I will make sure I don't eat too much salt on Sunday- and be retaining water.

Can you take your shoes off to be weighed at the MD office?

here's a kinda silly question, maybe you can answer, maybe you can't: what decides the size of your band?

And annie, I ALWAYS take my shoes off, of course, i usually have flip flops on!
