Hey guys, I realized we let this drop once February came, and I need to be held accountable. With my m/s already kicking in, food sucks right now so I'm going to try to post what I eat.

Today -

Multigrain cheerios w/soymilk - barely a 1/2 cup
Cocoa Pebbles w/soymilk
orange juice - not a good idea
8 saltine crackers with pizza sauce and veggie pepperoni
pregnancy tea
3 or 4 sour candies
Boca chick'n patty on a bun
some Panera Black Bean Soup (blech, didn't settle right)
pregnancy tea
chocolate soymilk
Cocoa pebbles w/soymilk (again...)

Blech. I had a terrible eating day. Boo.

Alright, guys, your turn! May you fare better than I...

Wow, you guys are doing great and making me look bad. Okay, today I'm trying hard to keep the m/s at bay. I'm having peppermint tea and almonds.

At least you guys are giving me ideas of things to possibly eat.

My appetite sucked the last few days, plus i have slow digestion and I feel full faster and it lasts longer. I think maybe m/s is beginning to creep up on me. Anyways, here's what I had so far today:

:
  • Oatmeal w/hemp seeds, ground flax, pecans, cinnamon, raisins, and rice milk
  • Green Tea
  • Raspberry Leaf tea
  • 1 banana
  • Chicken Soup
  • 1 graham cracker
  • 8 oz yogurt

For the rest of the day I plan to eat:
  • 1 orange
  • 1 apple
  • Dinner (chicken and red swiss chard, maybe some wild saffron rice)

It hasn't been a good food day. I didn't have morning sickness with my first 2 so I'm kind of in culture shock.

I had:
8 or so wheat thins w/cheddar cheese slices and 25. of an apple
a diet coke from the soda fountain
a medium fry from McDonalds :
some homemade chicken pot pie
water with lemon

Oh, I forgot. I had an apple at lunch, too.

Today I had a sprouted wheat bagel for breakfast (sounds gross, but with gobs of butter is actually good). Cottege cheese and potato chips for lunch (I think organic potato chips shouldn't count as potato chips.. ). For snack I had a cookie, cheese and a bottle of kombucha. I had a bit of roast beef for dinner, then a second dinner of scrambled eggs. Milk and water to drink in the day...not a bad day I guess. I did have another cookie a few minutes ago though. Not much in the way of calories... That's a big problem for me in pregnancy, I just don't want to eat! But at least I didn't feel sick, high ho for that!

Ok, I'll post what I ate yesterday.

Peppermint tea
Almonds
6 morningstar chicken strips (barely choked them down)
luna bar
honeydew
water
sour candies
saltines

and...

one FABULOUS baked potato, with margarine, garlic salt, and tofutti sour cream. It was like GOURMET.

My m/s seems to stop around 3:30 or 4. If I take a nap when I get home, it starts back up, but nowhere near as bad as it is in the morning. Today for some reason, I'm feeling ...okay. No signs today. For that I am THANKFUL.

This sucks, it's hard for me to eat. When I got home from work yesterday, I counted that I had only 30 grams of protein for the day. So, I made a protein shake, then had some pasta with kidney beans. I think that probably boosted me up to about 60 or so grams. Between the shake and the pasta with beans, I felt so gross afterwards like I had totally pigged out or something. I had indigestion for the rest of the night, and I had some acid reflux as I was going to bed. I need to find some better ways to get my protein intake to 80 grams/day without feeling like I ate too much. I want to incorporate a hard boiled egg each day, that would help a little. I just don't feel like eating, nothing appetites me, it sucks! I have some totally nutritious kale and red swiss chard in my fridge that I have not been in the mood to eat all week long. :

Dawn, I'm struggling with the protein too! Right now I'm struggling with EVERYTHING, but I guess I'm the most concerned about the protein.

I didn't have nausea today!

I did have a total aversion to food, but at least I didn't have the terrible, head to the desk, sucking on sour candy, awful awful nausea I've had for the past 3 days. It was nice to have a little break. :-)

Managed to eat a Boca chicken patty about 20 min ago, but I had to cut it into tiny pieces (and didn't quite finish the whole thing...) and I'm eating a Luna bar now. Add that to the fries I choked down earlier, and we're talking success for me, people! I'm ready for another baked potato for dinner, and maybe some beans or something protein-y on the side. We shall see.

Today for me...

oatmeal & scrambled eggs, skim milk
brown rice & black beans w/ cheese, lettuce, tomato, 2 corn tortillas
handful of grapes
hot chocolate made with skim milk

That's it so far. I'm feeling hungry and need to go have a healthy snack, but what? Off to find something...


Ended up with a toasted whole wheat bagel with peanut butter and a glass of skim milk. I'm craving milk like crazy these days which is so unlike me.

Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)

Expecting again early Oct 2014!

Guys, I'm still misery personified. Yesterday I had a nice nausea free day, but today it's back (not as bad, but it's still there).

And I am in SUCH a foul mood.

Sesame bagel - dry, picked at about 1/3 of it.
Sour candy - 1
Rice - white with some soy sauce. I ate about a forkful, gagged. Threw it out.
Saltines - 3
2 small orange slices
Bolthouse Farms Perfectly Protein drink - trying to drink this. It's got 19g of protein. I think I need it.

I decided to start the Best Odds Diet. I cannot, I refuse to gain 30 pounds, but of course I want my baby to get everything he/she needs. I started yesterday and did pretty good. Mainly the key is no refined sugars or grains. I had:

Steel cut oats w/ ground flax and raisins
Whole wheat bread and peanut butter
banana, apple, pineapple, strawberries
salad w/ yellow peppers, cucumber, carrots and tomatoes
black beans and wheat thins
2 eggs w/cheese on a sandwich

doesn't that seem like enough? I was pretty much eating like a junk food junkie. So maybe I'll actually lose a small amount of weight and then I can gain some back.

2 chix tortillas w/ black beans

large orange

2 handfulls of peanuts

diet soda (bad!)

i boiled 6-8 eggs at once (i heard of a great easy way to boil eggs from Martha Stewart once...you put the eggs in a pot of water...boil. turn the water off..come back later and refrigerate...believe it or not this has never failed for me!).
i keep eggs in the fridge and down at least 2 a day (i try to anyway)

im doing the Brewers diet so really trying to keep the protein up but im still sooo sooo tired.

My ww bagel w/ peanut butter did NOT sit well yesterday afternoon. I now have a strong aversion to peanut butter which is just as well I guess. I've been pretty nauseous today and have no appetite. I could barely get down my oatmeal and eggs this morning and have only had 1 cup of milk so far today. I had more brown rice, beans, & cheese w/ lettuce & tomato and corn tortillas for lunch again today. That kind of hit the spot but then the nausea came right back a little while after I finished eating. I also had a protein bar this afternoon, and spaghetti, sauteed squash & spinach and ww garlic toast is planned for supper.

Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)

Well, I'm not yet 100% sure I belong here (waiting for a test to arrive in the mail, or maybe just waiting until eventually a baby is born, or not), but I figure I'll play along for now!

You have to keep in mind that we are doing SCD right now, and not tolerating a lot of foods. We are still early on so it's a lot of meat. I'm really, really missing variety in veggies too. I'm not sure what I'll end up doing about that.

Today:
2 small home-made sausage patties
1/2 avocado
home-made electrolyte drink (water, baking soda, sea salt, honey and a splash of organic grape juice)
steak
baked pears (just peeled pears cooked in a tiny bit of water)
Lots of spinach and some more sausage patties with different seasoning this time
lemon balm/rrl infusion
1/2 a banana
2 spoonfuls of coconut cream
lots of water

Fresh fruit (especially grapefruit)
Fruit smoothies
Yogurt and frozen berries (if I put them together and stick in the fridge for half an hour the yogurt thickens, so the consistency is like frozen yogurt )
Eggs and toast
Salad with added protein--chicken, cheese, nuts, etc.

Multigrain Cheerios w/soymilk & 1/2 a sliced banana
a few saltines
2 cups of chocolate soymilk
a handful of animal crackers
Optimum Slim organic cereal w/soymilk
a few bites of the BEST pickle I've ever eaten

Going to have grilled "cheese" and tomato soup for dinner.
