Ack, today was awful.<br><br>
Breakfast - leftover beet cake, 1 c milk (lazy!)<br>
Snack - chocolate cupcake + neopolitan ice cream! (we were at a birthday party!)<br>
Lunch - McChicken sandwich (ick, I so totally know--it was a craving I couldn't knock, so I gave in!), fruit & yogurt parfait<br>
Snack - more beet cake! too much! + 1 c milk<br>
Dinner - corn chowder + zucchini cheese muffins<br>
Snack - 1 bowl mango chunks<br><br>
Need to drink more water. And try to forget all the millions of pieces of cake I ate today.<br><br>
At least the beet cake had lots of beets in it, eh? To counteract the sugar?

robina - don't worry that you don't get hungry enough. It's normal for you to eat less in the last trimester. Your tummy is more smooshed than ever. Don't worry, once you're nursing, you'll be starving <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
For me today<br>
B - bowl of cheerios, handful almonds<br>
L - spinach and asparagus salad, dolmas, hummus and avocado wrap, nectarine<br>
D - cup of pinto beans, nectarine, fritos, zucchini and potato pancakes
