    Hi all

    Is everyone managing to keep a healthy diet..... its like every magazine I pick up they are telling me to swap crisps with raisons and chocolate with fruit, for my healthy pregnancy, but when I am sitting at work and craving a kit-kat I really do not want a piece of melon??!!!!

    Before I was pregnant I was a three meal a day girl and no snacks, but since I got pregnant and stopped throwing up I really do not crave FRUIT!

    Am I the only one??????

    I now what you mean, I don't fancy fruit and healthy food either but I am trying my best!!!! I am better during the week when I am at work, I take my lunch to work with me so can't eat what I want, unless I leave the office and go to the shops! I tend to have soup and 2 bread rolls, a delmonte fruit cocktail and some melon or an apple and try to have veg with my tea if I can BUT it's on a night that I am bad - I seem to be craving chocolate now, have always been a savoury person but can't get enough chocolate at the mo - DH and I have eaten an easter egg each this afternoon, how greedy :shock: I think that we are only eating what our bodies are telling us it wants, lol!!!!!!!

    I ate what I wanted in the first trimester because of the nausea, but since 12 weeks I've been feeling lots better and got my appetite back and have been careful with what I eat.

    I ate reasonably sensibly before I got preggers but pigged out at weekends. Now I'm making more effort to eat more healthily because I don't want to put excessive weight on.

    I take my own food to work and always have eaten lots of fruit and veg even before I got pg. I've been eating muesli for brekkie and take nuts and raisins for a snack, I really like those kinds of foods so it's not a chore.

    But if you fancy something have it! At the moment I like creme eggs and I really fancy some pancakes tonight, I can't stop thinking about them.

    I weighed myself at 20 weeks and I weighed a pound less than I did at my 10 week weigh in! Looks like my weight gain will be in the second half of the pregnancy.

    I cant help but feeling hungry all the time.

    I am however, trying to eat fruit eat day and veg but probably not my 5 a day as recommended. I do have chocolate every day though. I also have my calcuim i.e. milk or yoghurt each day aswell.

    I am craving carbs all the time though.

    I seem to be eating man size dinners now.

    I was underweight before I became pregnant but since giving up smoking at the pregnancy I have put on just over 1 stone and a half!!

    maybe we should all just ignore the scales and feed our babys what they what!... god pregnancy is meant to be an exciting time not a WORRYING time.

    BRING ON THE CRISPS!!! hehe

    Worry about the diet after! xxxxxxxx :lol:
