Ladies, is it just me or does it feel like you suddenly have grown a hollow limb? I simply cannot stop feeding my face. At times I wonder, “Do I have a tapeworm inside me or a baby?”
I’ve found that eat the amount of calories to maintain my weight if not 200-300 calories more a day. This is actually recommended by doctors for new mommies. And even though you’re not technically eating for two, you’re fueling your body to keep up with the demands of a growing a baby!
To help banish hanger pains (yes, I said hanger because when I don’t eat often enough I get angry. Hence, hangry!), keep some healthy and convenient snacks on hand. While my pre-preggo self could always be found in the kitchen, I just don’t seem to have the desire to cook at all that requires more than a few minutes of prep.
Feeling the same? Try these easy mini meals to keep on hand for when the hunger pains kick in!
