Pregnancy is so unWeightwatcher Friendly

I havent bothered to weigh in this week! Ive been off work all week with the all day blinking long sickness (and all blinking night long too!). In order to try and keep the sickness at bay i need to eat every half hour to hour - not good! I was on dry crackers at the beginning of the week, but they didnt seem to be working so i swapped to ginger nut biscuits (so not good for trying to maintain my weight!).

Also, things that i think will be ok - such as dry toast and cereal - make me barf for England, but naughty things like bacon & sausage butties and Mcdonalds Double Sausage & Egg McMuffins go down lovely and stay down! Also diet drinks make me wanna upchuck, but full fat coke works a treat - AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!

Never mind, it should settle down soon - and then i'd better live off fruit and veg for the remainder of this pregnancy!!


  1. Protein - find alternative protein that is lower in sat fat, higher in good fats. Lean meats, egg whites, nuts, seeds and legumes.

    High carb intake in early pregnancy can have an effect on placenta and birthweight. Taking in adequate protein and dairy is important. Finding different high protein, healthy snacks to keep bloodsugar on an even balance is a pita, but you can do it. =)

  2. I know that one!!!

    Do try and eat a little of what's good for you and take a good pregnancy multivitamin to take some of the slack!

    Feel better soon x
