Here’s some updated pics since its been 1298634876 years since I’ve done any haha. Also, still in denial that I can’t wear all my normal clothes… I’m busting out of this non-maternity jacket!
I can’t say I have had a huge appetite, and I don’t think I’ve been eating a ton more than normal but I’m still gaining weight of course. Doc says its healthy so I’m trying to take his word for it!
That being said, I’m just waiting for the appetite stage to hit! I know some women take the mindset of eating for two… and I just wanted chat about it for a minute.
I read the book, You: Having a Baby and this really hit home for me. In the book they talk about you eating for 1.1. Seems simple right? I found it to be completely genius. That baby in there is SO TINY.
There is no way on earth that you need to eat enough to feed to adult ‘you’s.
Some of my goals right now (a little bit at a time) are focusing on increasing nutrient dense food and adding in physical activity.
- I really want to be better at planning my meals (all of them!) and getting to the grocery store with a list of things to prepare those meals.
- Exercise (even though it actually makes me feel MORE sick) needs to be an everyday thing, even just for 10 minutes!
- Water. Gosh, water hasn’t tasted good but that is a bad excuse haha.
- Prenatals- ugh. These make me so sick but I really need to be more consistent with them. Does it sound so terrible that I am admitting that? It sounds bad to me but it is so hard to take vitamins when you almost immediately toss them back up.
Do my other preggos have any goals that they are working towards? I’d love to hear about them! Also, any good menu planning (blander stuff), exercise and other random advice would be welcome! I’m a newb when it comes to motherhood so I love hearing about other people’s experiences.
