I take my prenatals faithfully and try to keep a balanced diet through the day, but lemmee tell you, there is no shortage of cookies in my diet.
I need to shape up, get a grip, and look toward the 2nd trimester when hopefully I start to feel better!
I am feeling weepy and mushy.. I just saw on the April DDC that there were 2 stillbirths over the past several days. I am going to cherish every moment of this pregnancy.
I think even pizza-fed babies turn out happy and healthy
Me= crunchy mama to one rambunctious toddler, born on October 1, 2009. And one sweet little baby born January 19, 2012.
Momma to DD (12/04) and DS (11/09) .
I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
I have been lucky enough to avoid too much nausea (a little here and there) and have not had any vomiting, but the food aversion thing is really messing with my head.
I am normally a brown rice, TONS of veggies (Steamed, raw, whatever--I will eat it) and fruits, lean protein, grilled fish eating, non chemical consuming gal..I hadn't even bought any bread in months before I was pg......but right now I can hardly stand eating veggies and I am craving junk food and its actually pretty upsetting because I know it isn't healthy.
I haven't eaten most of my cravings, but things like pizza, burgers, rueben's, french toast, FILLET O FISH (ekk!), french fries, grilled cheese sound pretty darn good.
I fight the cravings because they are bad for me, but its miserable to eat my normal healthy foods......
So, I am REALLY GLAD to hear that many have grown out of this--and get back to their old eating habits in the 2nd trimester....:
