Can't... stop... eating...

Wow. I sort of remember this from last time, but it's still a bit overwhelming. I literally have only stopped eating twice today - the first time for about 40 minutes mid-morning, and the second time for about 20 minutes after lunch. And even then, I was hungry the whole time.

Yesterday my blood sugar tanked when I went a bit over an hour without eating. I was sweating, shaking, felt really miserable and all that goes along with low blood sugar. I know it was low blood sugar and not something else because I have a glucometer - I'm not diabetic, but my blood sugar can get pretty chaotic, especially during pregnancy. I ended up fainting at the post office around 20 weeks last time, and ultimately was put on a "pizza and hamburgers" diet by my midwives - that's literally what she told me to eat.

It's not like I was eating junk today or yesterday. Yesterday I had several spoonfuls of peanut butter and watermelon for breakfast, then had two multigrain waffles as a mid-morning snack, then had cheese toast (whole wheat bread) as a pre-lunch snack, then had leftover pad thai for lunch. Today I had a peanut butter sandwich (whole wheat bread) for breakfast, and I've been munching on pistachios, cheese, watermelon, ice cream, and spicy buckwheat noodles (a Korean dish called bibim--myeon) ever since.

I'm about to go boil some eggs so I'll have a quick, high-protein snack available for me. And make some more cheese toast. And maybe start dinner early.....

Man, that sounds exhausting! Your plan sounds wise. Good job having such healthy snacks too!

oh boy, i haven't hit that point yet - i do get hungry often though and it annoys the hell out of me, because i don't want anything in particular so, i'm like "here we go again" ((walks into kitchen aimlessly looking through cabinets and fridge))!!! ahhh!
