Sauerkraut is full of good probiotics!  And ice cream is supposed to help with reflux.  So you can really just think about your diet right now as healthy self-medicating!!!  At least, that's what I'm going with.

I'm glad I'm not alone in the devouring fruit department, I ate a quarter of a big watermelon by myself the other day.  I go nuts in the produce aisle...I think it is half our grocery bill.  That and apple cinnamon Greek yogurt....yum!  B just made his Parmesan cauliflower last night and that is all I wanted to eat...I think I'm going to have him make it again....and eat all of it myself. I have also been eating, but am trying to avoid ice cream. 


I started using the website BabyFit by SparkPeople to track my food, since I have to track it for the Bradley classes anyway.  It is neat because it lets you create food groupings for things you eat a lot so it is easier to add to your log.  My most used groupings are salad, latte, berries with cottage cheese, and an egg, cheese and tomato sammy on an English muffin.

I have finally managed to make myself cut down on my ice cream intake.  For a while there I was having mint chocolate chip dinner nearly every night.  Now it's maybe twice a week, tops.  I've definitely picked up on fruit since then.  I guess I need to get the sugar somehow.

post #308 of 323

I didn't know that SparkPeople had a section to log for pregnancy.  I had tried to change my settings awhile back and couldn't figure it out.  Thanks for the recommendation.


My favorite ice cream is Trader Joe's Lemon and Triple Gingersnap.  It satisfies my cravings for lemon and ice cream at the same time. 


I'm devouring fruit too...it's one of the benefits of being pregnant during the summer.  I've already had cantaloupe, watermelon, and a peach today.  I'll make a fruit salad shortly. I'm also glad that the tomatoes and cucumbers are beginning to come the garden because I like to munch on those too.

VV - that site looks great!  I've created and account and will give it a try.  It'll be interesting to see how far off I am from reaching my daily target nutrient intake, LOL....

post #310 of 323

yes! so true! Major upside of summer pregnancies is fruit fruit and more fruit. DS1 was born during the winter and I'm pretty such my 'last days' of his pregnancy were eating cheese :)

post #311 of 323

ithappened, I hear you on the watermelon.  I can easily go through a whole big watermelon in a few days by myself, but I try to pace myself.  Which is helped when I have ripe peaches and fresh blueberries on hand.  Oh and plums, cherries, sweet corn on the cob, okra, tomatoes, and other produce that is in season now.  Summer is just the best.  I also make water with fresh fruit in it and add some citrus and mint, it is pretty refreshing.

Ground beef and vegie stir-fry

Roasted potatoes (just three, a tiny portion)

BBQ ribs (only 2 small ones)

Chopped raw vegies - cucumber, summer squash, carrots, green beans, and a tomato


Colby cheese (about 3 oz)

Lots of water


I just can't eat much these days, I fill up too quickly.  After eating all those vegies I felt like I might send them back up if I tried to bend at the waist.

post #315 of 323

I'm eating like a horse the last week or two..




3 pieces of toast with butter/jam + coffee

1 large goat cheese and spinach pizza + a coke (I dont know why but I needed a coke)

1/4 a watermelon and a few huge glasses of water

protein smoothie (random nuts, oats, fruit I had on hand and a bunch of yogurt)

3 bananas

hummus wrap with salad

1/2 chocolate bar


not sure what I will have for dinner :)

post #316 of 323

My baby has been so low this entire time that I just don't seem to be getting to that "fill up quickly" stage I keep hearing about....but maybe it's still coming? I am 31 weeks tomorrow.


Today I've had:

2 pieces high protein toast w/ butter and brewer's yeast

scrambled eggs, 1 piece bacon, roasted potatoes w/ ketchup

egg and cheese biscuit

cup of tea w/ honey

not enough water!

veggie soup

pnut butter & jelly sandwich

yogurt w/ blueberries and chia seeds


and I'm thinking of having a small protein shake (mixing protein powder w/ milk here at my desk), and wondering what to make for dinner.

post #317 of 323

I never did eat my banana or finish my tomato last night.  And I've slept a lot of the day, so today will be a short meal day.


Cookie (it was a small one, I'm trying to be good)


Green beans

Mashed potatoes

Popcorn (date night!)

Probably a few strawberries, since I'm processing a ton of them today for canning jam


I have another appointment on Thursday, and I'm so anxious to see how the baby is doing sizewise right now.

I don't know if it's because I got sick on Tuesday from fish tacos, but all week food has been seeming pretty gross. All of it! Sigh.

post #320 of 323

Boots, I'm feeling the same way.  If I have something quick in front of me (that's not a vegetable), I'll probably eat a little, but my appetite has been really low lately.  And I'm getting really full really quickly, so that's not helping either.



Whole milk latte and fresh fruit for breakfast

PB&J and kettle chips for lunch

Molasses cookies and strawberries for snack with sparkling lemonade (too much sugar... ugh... And I feel really full even though I didn't eat that much)

Veggie pizza for dinner I'll probably only have a little of this since I'm not even remotely hungry at 7:30 pm.  Blah.
