Pregnancy Eating

I try and eat as healthy as possible most of the time during the day and I don't keep sweets or snacks in the house that are unhealthy so I'm kinda stuck eating well....it's annoying but I know it's good for me. If I wanna eat cake or cookies I literally have to bake them. Chips I gotta go to the store...and with my 9m/o DD that can make it too much of an effort to bother...... Every so often I indulge though....call up my Dh at work and request a special order =) Usually the most horrible kind of fast food too.

Do you indulge yourself with eating whatever and whenever you want.....or do you try and control the cravings?

I indulge.  

A little less so now that I have GD, but I still indulge.  I just monitor the carbs and exercise more.

If you're eating generally healthy, fast food isn't going to hurt.
