I don't think I am eating enough. I'm nursing my littlest (he's only 16m almost) a few times a day but my milk is really low in supply.
I'm allergic to potato so I can't eat enriched foods (those vitamins they put in there to enrich the food are grown on a potato base and make me horribly sick and in pain) and most processed food is also out for me. I think I was eating enough for me before, but now that I'm pg, I really don't think what I'm eating is cutting it.
I know this is kind of a "duh, she should know" question, but what range is good for a pg/sorta nursing Mom? And does it matter that my quality of food is really good even if the calorie intake isn't on the high end?
It's not on purpose that I'm not eating a lot. I'm having trouble feeling hungry, and little sounds good (still on the tail ends of morning sickness here... I'll be 12w on Sunday). I kind of hesitate to MAKE myself eat, but I will if I need to.
I ate every few hours today (not exactly two, but two and a half hours apart or so) and I did feel a little better. Still sucked on the water intake (ugh, I don't know why I have such a hard time with this!). But again, in the evening I'm not feeling good. I've noticed I don't feel good when I'm tired so maybe I should just listen to that better...
