Week 12 – Day 4

In case anyone cares, I finally managed to go to the loo (first time in 5 days!) which has made me feel infinitely better! Have also been reading up about diet changes that I should have been making instead of sticking to my good old 3 meals a day which has properly clogged me up!

So, while I’m here and feeling a bit more energetic, this is the new improved food plan or pregnancy! Lots of little meals with all the nutrition 🙂

Breakfast options (7.30 am on weekdays):

  • 2 eggs, knackebrod with ham/cheese
  • Banana pancakes (2 eggs + 1 banana) with berries
  • 2 weetabix with kiwi & berries (with either milk or yogurt)

Snack 1 & 3 & 4 (10 am & 3 pm & evening if needed):

  • Banana or apple and some nuts or peanut butter
  • Babybell and some nuts
  • Vegetable sticks and hummus
  • Yogurt and berries

Snack 2 (aka light lunch around 12.30 pm):

  • Knackebrod with avocado or oily fish and bowl of soup

Dinner (around 7 pm):

  • Chicken or fish w. rice or sweet potatoes and veg

Sounds reasonable right? Time to get a shopping list together and sort this out!!


Week 12 – Day 3

I’m feeling so shit right now. Had a lovely weekend in Cologne but a build up of constipation (soz for too much info), eating too much and a cold means that I’m super bloated and in pain 😦

Apparently this happens to around half of pregnant women, so I need to make some diet changes to sort this out. But let’s do a bump pic anyway. I don’t think it’s grown much at all and attribute the tightness of clothes mainly to the epic bloatedness.

Right now I’m sort of wanting it to start showing as it might free up some stomach space if the uterus actually moves forward instead.
