Cravings & Sleep
Friday, December 03, 2010
I am in week 18 of my pregnancy (due 5/1/11) and all is going well! I have been enjoying my cravings and realized today that most are breakfast foods: oatmeal anything (the smell of dry oatmeal drives me crazy it is so good!), bagels and cream cheese, pancakes, and today breakfast burritos! I have been making a lot of food from scratch and adding whole grains and reducing sugar/salt/butter wherever I can.
I have been getting in my daily walks almost everyday but I get tired pretty easily so I am just doing what I can and not being too tough on myself. I stopped weighing myself when I found out I was pregnant and at my last visit my weight gain was 7 lbs and I was assured by the nurse that was normal so I am just trying to relax and enjoy pregnancy. Next week we find out the sex of the baby and I am really excited for that.
Sleeping has been a problem for me. Just can't seem to get comfortable! Lots of pillows, funny sleep positions, and I still toss and turn. Any one else have this problem and a magical solution? This is probably the biggest reason I have low energy and so I would love to find something that works.
Looking forward to a quiet weekend. Hope everyone has wonderful weekend!
