hi everyone! i don't have my first appt until next week to check on the little bean but i'm going to remain cautiously optimistic and start my pregnancy diet. no, not a diet - a lifestyle. some of us have children already and some are FTMs. if there is one piece of advice i could have given my then pregnant with #1 self it would have been to EAT HEALTHY! instead, i ate everything in sight (eating for 2, right??) and gained a ton of unnecessary weight. as in, i gained close to 15 lbs in the first tri! and it took me FOREVER to lose the baby weight. actually, last saturday is when i got back to my pre-preggo weight! woot! then on sunday i got a positive pregnancy test. oy.
so, who is with me? who wants to help keep each other in check on making healthy decisions and exercising during this pregnancy?
they say you need about 300 extra calories a day when pregnant. not 3000! which is pretty much what i did! lol!
How are you eating healthy?
What does your typical day look like food-wise?
What is your exercise plan for the day?
