This is my third go round...and with my past two pregnancies I gained 75 lbs and 65 lbs respectively. :eek: This time I REALLY want to stay within the healthy weight gain range (I think 25 to 30 lbs?) My problem with the first pregnancy was that I went a bit crazy, ie, "I am pregnant and I can eat whatever I want!" And with the second I was SO sick the first trimester that I only wanted to eat carbs - muffins, bagels, etc. I ended up gaining about 14 pounds in the first tri alone! Unfortunately carbs were the only things that made my nausea bearable.
Thankfully I was able to lose the weight after both pregnancies but it was a struggle and a challenge. I just want to avoid the same pitfalls...and hopefully find something other than carbs to avoid the sickness :puke2:
Any suggestions? What has your experience been with your past pregnancies (assuming this is not your first time!).
