I'm vegetarian, and before I got pregnant, I'd eat the equivalent of about 1500 calories a day. This maintained my weight nicely at just over 9 and a half stone and size 8/10 in clothes. Once I became pregnant, I didn't get any sickness, but I did get a weird kind of nausea which meant if I didn't eat every two hours I would feel physically sick. I tried my best to have healthy snacks like oranges, bananas and ryvita, but by the time it came to my booking appointment at 8 weeks I had already shot up to 10 stone 2. I've not weighed myself since then, but I had a few more weeks of that nausea that trailed off around 12 weeks, but since then I just can't seem to stop wanting food in general. I'm now eating about 2000 calories a day, and all I can think is that if 1500 maintained a healthy weight before, I must really be piling it on now. We're only supposed to need extra calories in the third trimester. Is there any tips anyone has for filling snacks I can eat that are vegetarian? I'm imagining I need some kind of high protein snack. I don't eat any kinds of nuts so that's out. I'm quite happy to gain weight for pregnancy, but I want it to be healthy and sensible. If I'm going to gain half a stone every two weeks like before my booking appointment then I'm going to be ridiculous by the end of this. To top off this worry, there is a history of diabetes in my family and putting on a lot of weight in pregnancy can trigger gestational diabetes!
