Tiiiirrreeed!!!

Hey all!! First of all I need to say thanks for all your sweet comments on my bump and the support! You all are just too sweet! I just can’t believe how much my tummy is already sticking out. I’m pretty sure it gets bigger everyday!

I feel very good about my eats the first 2 days of the week. Here is a summary of Tuesday’s eats. For breakfast I had 1 glass orange juice (Vitamin C) and a bowl of oatmeal (whole grains) with a sliced banana (other fruits). DSC09662DSC09661

One thing I love about my job is that I had almost 2 weeks off over Christmas, but boy oh boy, coming back to insane, crazy busy work has been rough on this girl!

Mid morning I snacked on 1 c of multi grain cheerios (whole grains). DSC09663

Like I said the office was pretty crazy, so to hold me over till lunch I sliced an apple (other fruits) for another snack. DSC09664

My late, but delicious lunch was leftovers! I had cheesy crock-pot chicken (protein) with brown rice (whole grains). DSC09668

When you take lunch at 2pm it really makes your afternoon fly! Before I knew I was carpooling with my main man to our humble abode! I love that we work at the same place!

Supper was a true midwestern meal, steak & potatoes! We use our new *larger* George Foreman grill to cook 2 good sized steaks. I had 1/2 of one (protein & iron).DSC09670

And the roasted potatoes (iron) rounded out the meal! Felt like a farm girl again! ;)DSC09671

After supper was eaten & cleaned up, I got right back to work. I brought home a bunch of things that are VERY time sensitive right now. Needless to say, I’m ready to hit the hay!

Here is a run down of my stats. The top number is how many servings I got in, the bottom number is how many is recommended. I think it will be hard to get all the recommended servings in of each category. But I think the big thing is that when I do choose food, I choose nutritionally rich ones.

  • Whole Grains 3/6
  • Calcium 0/4
  • Green Leafy/Yellow Veggies/fruits 0/4
  • Protein 2/3
  • Vitamin C 1/3
  • Iron 2/3
  • Other Fruits & Veggies 2/2
  • Fats 2/4
  • Fluids 104oz
  • Prenatal – check!

I’m still in decision mode. These are a LOT of thing to track. But I know they are important for me & my baby, so I’m giving it a shot. If anyone has any advice to more easily track I am all ears!

You know what your body needs - don't stress yourself out trying to get all that they recommend. It is impossible to get all of those servings in everyday. I just tried to eat as healthy as possible and I had a 9lb healthy baby =)

Such healthy choices. Good job. Love me some cheesy crockpot chicken.

I've only recently discovered your blog and I am so pleased for you. I wish you a lovely pregnancy and good luck with the eating plan. After having 3 boys and a lifelong battle with weight, weight gain is inevitable but there's plenty of time to worry about food and that after these precious 9 months so just enjoy it for what it is. Eat healthy, eat what your body tells you and if baby craves meat, let baby have meat. Congratulations. xx

Youre such a healthier eater. That chicken looks absolutely amazing. Definitely going to have to give that a try. Will you be finding out if you're having a boy or girl?

I'm totally impressed with your decisions and commitment to tracking Darci! Way to go girl! You are already eating so much better than so many people I know have during their pregnancies, don't sweat the small stuff. And you look GREAT in your recent pics! Congrats to you and Kyle again...

Ps - I've been totally curious - have you had any crazy food cravings yet?? :-)

I just found out I'm pregnant too!!! I believe I'm around 5/6 weeks but won't know for sure until my appointment on the 13th. I've had blood work done already and my hormone levels are good but I am absolutely exhausted lol! I will definitely be looking to your blog for tips and such! You look great by the way!
I too am trying to go about this the healthy way. Afterall...there is no such thing as a 50 pound new born LOL :)

I agree with Baby Weight and Beyong. After having 3 babies, it isn't worth the stress.
The one thing I saw you lacking for the day was calcium. If this is a tough one for you, I recommend a calcium supplement with vit D. I despise milk and yogurt and my midwife suggested I take it.

Thanks for sharing your eating strategy on your blog! I've often wondered how I would to transition from counting points to eating healthy for a baby without overdoing it if I get pregnant...looks like you're doing great!
