I'm 12.5 weeks along with my 2nd and I am having SO much trouble this time around eating healthily. Not at all because of junk cravings or food aversions, but because of lack of time and healthy options around me that I can get to within a pinch. I am so hungry lately and it's difficult to have enough packed to take to work for the full day (I work FTOH)...I swear, I need a cooler or something to hold everything I would ultimately eat. I just don't have the time and energy to keep up with the meal-planning, shopping, and cooking that will cover dinners, lunches for DS and me, and other grab-and-go homemade foods to get through the entire week. I babysat my neighbor's daughter all evening yesterday and made myself a quick sandwhich for dinner, so today I found myself without lunch and just wolfed down a take-out Italian sub and fries after feeling like I could eat my arm for hours. And now I feel guilty.
When I was pregnant with #1 my diet was pristine and I counted every gram of protein I ate
Anyone having this same issue or have any tips? I would love to be eating pounds of organic broccoli or quinoa lol. Instead I'm shoveling in burgers and fries out of desperation. I'm also still nursing DS about 2-3 x a day so I'm sure that factors into things.
