Mamas, I am so tired of being nauseous. But more importantly I am wondering if there is any possible way I am consuming enough food for myself, this LO and still making milk for DS.
Surely, women in other (poorer) countries are able to carry babies with much less nutrition than what I am getting?
I am really trying to eat but my meal sizes are very (very) small and I am just choking it down. NOTHING tastes good or settles well or makes me feel any better. If I eat too much then the nausea just gets worse.
I am usually a healthy eater and I have regressed big time. I usually bake fresh bread several times a week and have had to resort to buying my kids bread from the grocery store.
It's like right when I should be especially mindful of what I am putting into my body I have starting eating cr@p. I am horrified when I look at the labels of the bread or the other "fill in" foods that I have been feeding my family in my current state. Even when you buy organic it is still processed, boxed cr@p when all is said and done.
I read these recommended pregnancy diets and I have to laugh. 1) there is no way I am coming close to consuming even 1/4 of that right now and 2) I think if I ever ate all their recommended foods I would gain 50 pounds! Like, 1 quart of raw milk a day, 4 tablespoons healthy fats (like butter) daily and 3 eggs daily. Good grief, I am all for raw milk, butter and eggs but, really??
Anyway, I have always taken a pretty laid back approach to my pregnancies but I am kind of stressing....maybe I am just hormonal?
