oh yeah, and y'all please be careful and listen to your bodies. my SIL forced herself to do the super high protien diet they taught in bradley and ended up having a very unhealthy, painful pregnancy which was at least aggravated by the protien that was too much for her system. i imagine she's in the minority, every body is different, but please oh please do listen to your body.
myself, i ate huge huge amounts of protien when preg with dd, probably way over any recomendations, but i think i started out deficient, since i had been a vegetarian for eight years and didnt know yet that i had an enzyme deficiency that made it really difficult to absorb plant protiens. of course, i wasnt the most careful vegetarian either, so my diet was pretty lacking. anyway, i started eating meat and ate rediculous amounts of red meat, every single day with dd. it was just what i needed. this time, i can barely stomach the stuff. meat has been making me feel pretty poisoned for the most part, although there have been two occasions so far in which i have NEEDED a big steak.
everything else, seems i need it, i eat it, i cant even think of it again without wanting to barf. just like aprildawn i guess. but i am only 10 weeks now, so i know my body will get more comfy and then tell me what i need. that's it for me, i wont do any watching or counting anything, except trying to keep sugar low, as that is the place where i seem to get easily out of balance.
oh, how could i forget...REFRIGERATED GREEN APPLES. yum i could eat those forever. the yummiest foods these days are sour and cold.
