One thing I was not expecting was how every bite of food I put in my mouth, for the most part, is the BEST of that thing EVER. I don't know why this happens, and maybe this doesn't happen to every pregnant woman, but food tastes even better than it did before. That shouldn't be a problem, right? Well, let me explain...
Here I am at 30 weeks. The baby is probably about 4 pounds. I have gained about 20 pounds. And, clearly, my belly is big. So, the problem is that there is NO ROOM FOR ANYTHING ELSE IN THERE right now. And, I know this is only going to get worse.
I was not a good pregnant woman. I didn't start the 6 small meals a day thing when I should have. Instead, I ate 3 regular meals and 3 small snacks. Well, getting a regular meal into that body, is nearly impossible. But, that is the habit I am in. Add to that that everything tastes amazing, so I never want to stop eating what is on my plate. And, we have ourselves a real crises here. So, I eat, like I normally would, and then feel tremendously awful for a few hours afterwards.
You would think that one or two times of this and I would have learned my lesson, right? WRONG! But, I am trying. And, I am sure it will get better soon. I really hope it does. This is only going to get worse and worse as the baby continues to grow. But, it is hard for this foodie to say 'no' to delicious bites.
I am trying to serve myself smaller portions, and trying to get Mr. Foodie to do the same if he is plating us up. But, what happens when I go to a restaurant like Mi Pueblo and order a delicious quesadilla off their new menu? Huh? What then?
Any advice that this food-loving pregnant woman might be able to stomach?
