First off, thank you so much for all your kind words and good wishes for Baby Long Legs! It’s been an interesting journey so far, and I wanted to share with you some of my diet so far.
Starting right from the beginning, my biggest thing has been protein. I want lots of it at every meal. I’ve been eating a lot of these:
some of these:
more of this than I care to admit:
And at least one of these a week for the past 17 weeks (usually 2):
I just can’t get enough protein. I find myself waking up in the middle of the night for a snack, and I always always always have something to eat in my purse/car/pocket. Navigating my hunger is a day-to-day thing, but I think I’m getting to a stage where I can head off any side effects from not eating enough.
As far as cravings go? I constantly want fruit. Doesn’t matter what kind of fruit it is, I’ll eat it. Usually with peanut butter on it. If I’m really craving something (today it was ice cream) I won’t deny myself, but I’ll make sure it’s good quality, and in a small yet satisfying portion.
I’ve gained about 4 pounds at this point (17 weeks along) and for me, that’s healthy. It’s all baby/boobs so far, hopefully it will stay that way!
