I ate almond butter with raw honey on sprouted bread as a snack while pregnant with DD and it was awesome--satisfied my sweet tooth with the raw honey, I got high quality protein that left me feeling full for awhile and the bread satisfied my carb craving. Its a very healthy snack as well.
You might also want to try protein shakes to help with feeling full. Also, try not to stress too much. I gained around 55 lbs with my daughter and it all came off within 4 months, mostly from breastfeeding. I've heard many similar stories.
My wife (31) and I (33) were married in 2006. We are proud queer mamas to W, born Oct 2013, conceived at home IVI via frozen WTBK donor sperm. Planning on TTC #2 starting in Sept 2015 through the same method. I am/will be the gestational mom.
I think i am starving all the time now too. I have been making sure to drink tons of water but still i'm hungry. I have been using veggies dipped in hummus or home made black bean "dip" to tide me over between meals. I have noticed that the more protein i eat, the longer I stay feeling full.
Hey Danielle!! I am wondering if you're lacking protein as well. I am vegetarian and I know when I start craving sweets it is usually my body's indicator that I need more protein. That said, I have craved fruit, especially berries, like mad this entire pregnancy thus far. While often hard to do, unless your healthcare provider has said otherwise, I think I'd worry less about weight gain and focus more on eating more protein rich snacks and meals. Obviously this is not the time to deprive yourself. You are in another big growth spurt right now and it is perfectly normal to be hungry, very hungry, very often.
