Hospital Weight Gain :(

Somehow, I GAINED weight while in the hospital-- 4 pounds to be exact.  I don't know if the hospital food is just that good (ugh... I'm going to guess that isn't it) or that fattening... or if baby is just growing.

Last week my lower abdomen and back started hurting, but I assumed it was just pregnancy related pain and went on about my business.  Mr. Banker and I had a busy weekend, so when we got home Sunday we laid on the couch together and took a nap.  I woke from my nap with sharp pains in my back and realized this pain was too familiar-- all those kidney stones I'd had, they felt JUST LIKE this.  Mr. Banker thought I should go to the hospital, but I wasn't very interested at first because I thought there wasn't much they could do for me since I'm pregnant.

A few hours in though, I began to worry that I might have a stone blocking my ureter and need a stent (I've had 2 stents in the past) so I decided it was time to go to the hospital.  They found no stone, but that I had a severe kidney infection.  Severe enough that they admitted me to the hospital right away for IV antibiotics.

I had a lovely 2 night stay at the local hospital and fortunately came home yesterday. Nowhere is better than home, in my own bed, with my own dogs, and my own Mr. Banker.


  1. IV fluid gain :) I hope you feel better soon mama!

  2. Don't worry about the weight gain. I gained 8.6 lbs when I had my sleeve surgery! I lost it quickly. You will too. Glad you are home.

  3. Don't worry! You can lose your weight and feel healthier . It will be hard & it will take a long time, but YOU CAN DO IT :)

  4. Yeah, you didn't actually gain 4lbs in that short amount of time, unless you actually ate 14,000 calories OVER your maintenance calorie range during your hospital stay-that would be an impressive feat with hospital food lol :)

    Just found your blog and now following!
