Today, I've been experiencing a new symptom: hunger! Even though I've been eating a really nutrient-dense diet:
Breakfast: 3 egg omelet with cheddar cheese and sauteed kale and spinach, 1 shot espresso with half-and-half
Lunch: Salad with chicken, herbal tea
Snack: Pear with handful of peanuts
Dinner: 2 Slices of meatloaf, raw celery and bell pepper slices
Snack: Grapefruit with a few almonds, herbal tea
Every time snack/meal time rolls around, I've been so ready for it! My stomach is literally growling right now, even though I just ate my evening snack a couple of hours ago.
I'm going to generally try to follow the Brewer Diet throughout this pregnancy. I'm allowing myself to have one cup of coffee every other day. With my other pregnancies, I didn't drink coffee at all, but the recommendations have been revised since my last pregnancy, and now that I already have three kids, it's hard to make it through a day without coffee! I might try to cut back even more, maybe to once a week, because I'm still a little nervous about caffeine's potential effect on the baby.
Anyway, now I'm rambling. Better head to bed. Best wishes to all you lovely pregnant ladies as you adjust to/endure your symptoms!
