I'm curious about other women the same stage as me. What types and quantities of foods are you eating these days? I had lost about 7 pounds right before I got pregnant and I put it all back on within the first few weeks. So I'm not really sure if my pre-pregnancy weight should be 137 or 144. I got up to 180 and have fallen down to 147. So I'm either up 10 or 3. I'm not making much effort to lose it yet but I'm starving all the time.
My little guy is still gaining a couple of ounces a day and I leak a lot of milk, could that mean I need more than the average 500 extra calories a day?
I went on a trip with my mom so it was obvious when we were eating. I easily ate twice as much as she did. Far more often and larger quantities.
I know that it's normal to eat more while nursing but I'm even craving things like straight butter and coconut oil.
I'm also eating normal meals. Salads, meat and starches, just more than anyone else in the house. Haha, about as much as everyone else added together plus a regular portion.
So what does it take to fill you up? Are you still losing weight?
