I have gained one pound 17 weeks into this pregnancy. Given my food aversions and morning sickness, I am not surprised (although looking at my growing belly I would have guessed more.)
But I think things are about to change. I am Hungry all of the time now. One day for lunch last week I had a BLT with avocado and pasta salad. Still hungry. The husband had a slice of cheese pizza left over from a meeting so I ate that. Still hungry. A coworker took pity on me and gave me grapes and a banana. Finally, I was satisfied.
Since then I have been hungry much more than normal. I'm trying to fill up on healthy foods, lots of fruits and veggies.I graze all day, eating watermelon and cantaloupe, carrots and cucumber with ranch dressing, or cheese crackers between meals. It just doesn't seem to be enough.
What are your go-to fill up healthy fill up foods especially when pregnant?
