So I had my 30 week check up today. I have lost a 1/4 of a pound since my 28 week checkup, and the fundal height is at 28cm. Which is the same as it was at my 28 week checkup. So far through the entire pregnancy I've gained 5lbs. I started the pregnancy overweight so my doctor was never concerned about my lack of weight gain since the baby was growing. She just said that I'd probably weigh less after deliver then I did before I was pregnant. Which wasn't my goal, but I did change my eating habits to start leading a healthier life style and to be cautious that I didn't gain too much weight. In turn the natural weight loss happened. But Now she says I need to eat more and gain some weight. Which I thought I was eating as much as I could handle already.
I've had morning sickness and nausea throughout the entire pregnancy but I can usually find a remedy of food that I can keep down or tolerate the sick feeling but now everything makes me super sick. I seem to be able to eat better in the morning (and take advantage of that by making some eggs or making a breakfast
sandwich). But I throw up (sorry if TMI) every night after dinner no matter what I do to keep it down. Basically anything after breakfast is hard to keep down.
I constantly feel like I have a protein deficiency, but meat and most dairy make me sick. Too much sugar makes me sick, and most raw veggies make me sick. Honestly I feel like everything makes me sick except carbs and fruit which doesn't make for a very well balanced diet and leaves me feeling like I'm lacking in a lot of nutrients. Anywho I guess I'm looking for any suggestions of foods or snacks that are on the healthier side that can help gain some weight but not leave me feeling too gross. Seems like an impossible task, I've looked online a bunch and researched. I've been doing the "grazing" thing or eating lots of small meals a day. But I'm hoping some of you guys might have some good ideas.
My doc is for the first time concerned which makes me more concerned, since before today she always told me I was having a picture perfect pregnancy in terms of health.
Thanks in advanced!!!
