I can eat bread by the truckload, but for the most part the “must consume all food” feeling has not hit me even remotely at 31 weeks. I’m just not hungry like I expected I would be.
My husband has been calling me the worst preggo ever.
Omg today…all I can think about is food. I just want to sit around and shovel food into my mouth. My Fiance and I were talking about how there should be some kind of pregnancy restaurant where they serve anything and everything all at once.
All I do now is eat – or think about eating! After not having an appetite the first few weeks (no sickness, just no appetite), it has come back with a vengeance now at almost 9 weeks. I *may* have made blueberry muffins yesterday and *may* have eaten five of them.
I also *may* have just come home from a swimming workout and eaten three gigantic bowls of Rice Krispies – don’t ask me why, but I’ve had the biggest craving for them this week.
On the plus side, I am going home for Thanksgiving next week and am so excited to indulge in all of the American food I’ve been missing!!! Two whole weeks at home – I’m quite sure I’ll return to Australia about 5 kg heavier than I am now!
I didn’t eat a ton today (toast, wonton soup, veggie sub) … but tonight I couldn’t help myself and made a batch of dinner rolls with honey butter that I am snacking on … nothing is better than fresh baked rolls … but I should put them away soon (2 have already dissappeared).
I’m in denial about the extra food.
Like, I have this voice in my head saying that I wouldn’t normally snack before dinner…..but then another voice comes in and says, ‘well, DH is snacking before dinner too, so it’s totally within the range of normal’. And I try not to notice that I eat more than him for dinner every night.
A couple years ago, a gal at my work (while pregnant) told me that since she gets home before her DH, she would make and eat a dinner. And then she’d eat the regular dinner with her DH too, but not tell him about dinner number one.
My extra food today already: after my usual breakfast of yogurt, decaf latte, and toast, I have managed to stop by Starbuck and I got a cinnamon bun. (Promise that my lunch is healthy!)
I used to have multiple of each meals when I was preggo. Like I’d wake up, eat a bowl of cereal (breakfast #1) and then hubby and I would go out to breakfast (breakfast #2) and then I’d have a granola bar for a snack or a smoothie or something (breakfast #3).
It was pretty embarrassing.
I’m with @artbee!
Breakfast #1 was a bowl of cereal and glass of OJ. Then breakfast #2 was a banana. Breakfast #3 was a bagel. Breakfast #4 was just an apple. And it’s not even 11.
Um… well, we had one baby shower a week ago and then another a few days after that. Between all of those desserts that they made us take home and the leftover Halloween candy, my house was FULL of food and sweets. And then I got a cold and was home all week, with all of those yummy desserts staring me in the face, so of course, I *had* to eat them.
We’re talking, cupcakes, cake balls, brownie bites, candy of all assortments and caramel popcorn!! Yes, I had some of all of it 🙂 I’m so screwed when the holidays get here! (oh wait, that starts next week!)
So, I hope that makes you feel better about your splurging (even though you really didn’t slurge that bad 😉 )
