Welcome to CafeMom,
Maybe you could ask your doctor for other ideas.
How about some yogurt .. hopefully others will have more ideas for you :)

Yogurt, veggies such as green beans, Kletus, spinach, and lots of protien such as beans. I would also ask my doctor specifically what he suggests or even ask a nutritionist.

I cannot believe your doctor told you not to eat these things anymore without giving a list of recommended alternatives or setting you up with a nutritionist.

I would probably increase my lean protein. Have you talked to a nutritionist yourself?

Ugh, doctors... 

First off, those ultrasound weight predictions are often not correct.  Baby may be bigger, or smaller, than what the doctor says.

I'd focus on eating lean protein (chicken, lean beef, eggs, etc), more fruits & veggies.  Maybe try to stay away from breads though.  Oatmeal is a good breakfasty food and you can add peanut butter or fruit to it to make it tasty and give you variety.

Good news is that it won't be much longer. :)
