Thanks so much for the encouragement. I really need to get going. After I get the containers, I'm going to roast a chicken and make some pot pies with the leftovers, and freeze those. Then maybe next week I'll do meatloaves. I figure if I freeze one or two meals a week I'll be set by May 25th (since I am expecting to be on time again, plus last time we were given a lot of food by friends and colleagues.).

You guys are inspirational!

Rainbowbird, Lots of "mexican" dishes freeze easily, enchiladas, beans, if yo can tolerate them post partum (I craved them) they are quick, easy , and reheat well. Also, chili, and you can regulate the heat. You might consider baking a bunch of chicken breast and individually freezing them for those late night snack attacks. Also, fruit muffins for snacking.

Definitely pizza for pregnancy, but I needed some protein late at night when I was nursing and a piece of chicken went down real easy and wasn't messy or anything.

chicken is very good idea for nursing. Its funny, once the baby was out, I craved high protein and veggies- all good foods. I could eat all I want and I kept shrinking everyday. My husband called me the incredible shrinking woman. Thats one of hundreds of great things about nursing.

Me, too. I kinda plateaued around 10 months, then at 1 year, it started dropping again. I guess a nursing toddler can really suck the lbs off.
