Everyone keeps telling me, enjoy this time, it's the only time in your life you get to eat whatever you want and not care. Not true, there are so many things that we're not supposed to eat and it's killing me to not eat raw fish! so i did it. i ate ahi poke and loved every bite!
Secondly, i'm not that hungry. Thirdly, when I look at the calorie increase for my height and exercise level, i'm only supposed to consume around 1800 calories a day in 2nd tri, i can't even eat enough to get there b/c of heartburn and a full feeling after just a few bites. Despite all this, i still managed to gain more than recommended...12lb so far and we're only supposed to gain 8lb by 17wk, right?
Anyone else experiencing this? Could it be that shorter women gain faster up front? Anyone else eating "prohibited" foods?
and...i'm only an "on the rare occasion" drinker, but i've been craving a cold beer, haven't had one, but i want it.
