So here's the thing. I was in the midst of a Whole30 and doing AWESOME and feelin' great when BAM I got knocked up. This was a long-hoped-for thing so all was good. I kept doing my Whole30 for about two weeks after I found out I was pregnant but I felt like absolute crap and I knew I needed more starch. So I added some rice and potatoes and felt a bit better but rapidly became sick of rice and potatoes and before I knew it there was a sandwich in front of me (a really good one, smoked albacore tuna and wasabi mayo on artisan baguette) and I ate it and I knew that I NEEDED the bread to get me through the first trimester.
I'm okay with this, more or less, but I'm hugely bloated, I look like I'm 4 months pregnant when I'm only 9 weeks along - and I don't want to do it any longer than necessary. With DD I started to feel less nausea around 12 weeks so I'm hoping to go back to a more paleo/primal style of eating within the next couple of weeks.
Has anyone been through this? What worked? What didn't? Why is a sandwich the only thing that makes me feel half-decent? (Don't even think of suggesting just eating the insides - bleurgh. Protein on its own is just not going down.)
