I'm currently 21 1/2 weeks!!! I was doing so well to be primal at first. I didn't have morning sickness except 3-4 times, but I was constantly nauseas, it was terrible. Now I just feel carsick occasionally. I'm due Dec 29th.
Food I enjoyed in the first trimester, I can't stand in the second. Curry, sushi, totally off the menu. Now all I crave is freaking pizza and ice cream. I have plain vanilla ice cream a few times a week, and I make little mini pizzas for lunch sometimes. Honestly, you just have to give in occasionally! Make sure you're getting tons of nutrient dense veggies and I would recommend carbs around 150g a day average. Try to put them all together if you are having trouble.. such as soup, or stir fry's.
Drink plenty of water too.
Oh and I know every woman is different, but I started out at 165 pounds, and today I finally progressed a little to 170 pounds. My Dr. has been nagging at me to gain more weight, but the baby is fine and on track so I'm not going to listen to him. Although I haven't physically gained much in pounds, I LOOK like I gained about 40. My legs and ass are SO much bigger. I know its all for the baby, so I try not to complain too much.
and PLEASE let me know if you have any questions or anything! I love talking about babies and stuff, this is my first pregnancy.
