You are not the only one!  First trimester was really hard, so my exercise regimen went out the window… Weight gain hasn’t been a problem (I’ve had the opposite), but someone said to me today “Chubby and pregnant is beautiful”.  Sniff.  So now I’m chubby 🙁

For the better part of my first trimester I could barely get myself off the couch and the only things I’d eat were tater tots and popsicles.  One day, my husband got me some of those seasickness bands and they really made me feel better so we went out for Ethiopian food.  When we got home I took the bands off and let’s just say I didn’t stray from the tater tots again after what happened.  You are definitely not alone!

LOL!  been there and done that amandopolis.  Let’s just say that popcicles were the most appealing food for a while because they taste all right going down and coming back up!

First off I must mention that I am one lazy individual but not to the point of how I felt during the first tri-mester. I was constantly exhausted. My routine was go to work, come home and cook, then lay down. My weekends consisted of me taped to my bed in my pjs. I had no energy for anything.

As for the food, my cravings at that time was sprite and chocolate, so I unfortunately ate a lot of it. I tried to eat the good stuff but they just didn’t taste that good to me at the time and it had nothing to do with morning sickness as I haven’t experienced any of it.

Now is a whole other story. The good foods are tasting better to me and I have more energy before. I still have my moments but when I have the energy I make sure that I take advantage of it and do something before it wears off.

The first trimester was really rough for me. I wasn’t a big puker, but I was horribly nauseous ALL the time until about week 16. I had major food aversions and the only things I could stomach were grapefruit and smashed potatos and gravy. There were a few times I got worried that the baby and I weren’t getting enough nutrition but my mom kept telling me that’s why women take prenatal vitamins! That always made me feel better.

Also, because I was so sick I just sat around on the couch when I wasn’t working,.. there was no exercising going on whatsoever. Now even though I feel much better I’m just not all that motivated. I try to do my yoga a few times a week and that’s it. I’m a massage therapist so my job is pretty physical, so I try to tell myself I’m getting some excersise that way. I dunno. I really wish I were more motivated because I know that being active has so many benefits to both mom and baby.

This post made me laugh! I’m in my second trimester and pretty much since day 1 of this pregnancy I’ve been reaching for carbs, carbs, and more carbs. I’m such a meat lover usually but I bet I haven’t eaten meat more than once or twice this whole time. If it doesn’t have a noodle or some rice in it I don’t want it. Lol This is doing wonders for my figure!

@Jdelaney – I’m there with you. I am definitely a carnivore. Usually I crave meat but lately even when I am making meat for the hubs and my Father-In-Law, I don’t want any of it. I want the carbs! I do get my meat in from time to time just not as much pre-pregnancy.

Ugh, the smell of cooking beef still makes me want to go hurl… I’m right there with you girls as well, just give me a bag of chips and some mashed potatos and I’m a happy lady.

I’m only 8 weeks, so I’m still pretty nauseated.  I make myself eat food sometimes, but I hardly eat any veggies!

I mostly eat carbs & fruit, but lately I’ve been getting in a little more dairy & meat….veggies are still a struggle, but I hope the PNV make up for it, bc I feel guilty that I’m not more nutritionally sound.

I do pilates 2x a week and try to get up and walk 10 minutes at work, but it’s definitely not as much as I’d like to do, and the walking is still not every day.  I have to admit I’m just so nervous of puking at work, which so far I’ve not had to do!

First, I’m not pregnant, but my Future Mother-In-Law did tell me that she was vegetarian for 10 years, and then once she got pregnant all she wanted to eat was MEAT! I’m a vegan now, so it kind of freaks me out…although I know once I’m ready to have kids, I’ll need to start adding different vitamins into my diet. Have any of you read Skinny Bitch: Bun in the Oven? The original Skinny Bitch is what made me go vegan, but they also wrote a book for pregnant women and new moms about eating and exercise during pregnancy.
