I'm 16 weeks pregnant. Spent my entire 1st trimester throwing everything up, unded up smaller than I was before i found out I was pregnant. Now I'm 16 weeks, my fingers are slightly swelled, and I feel bloated, and the scale is showing an 8 pound increase. That doesn't sound like much, except for where I'm at in my pregnancy, and the fact that I'm only allowed to gain about 15 pounds. ...I just don't want to mess up.
I love being pregnant. However, I love it soooo much with my first baby (who is now 19 months) that I gained about 40 pounds...and never lost it. So this pregnancy I was determined to do it right, and do it healthy. Last couple of weeks we've done nothing but eat out, so I lost the "healthy" I know. I need to get right though...but I'm not sure I know how.
Cut calories? Focus only on the good ones? Cut carbs? Ugh, I feel defeated.
The beautiful thing is I'm addicted to salad during this pregancy. It's all I think about. Maybe I should live off salad's. :)
Any help would be great!
