Hello! A quick question...
I'm actually still TTC, so gatecrashing here, but I want to be prepared!
At work, I rarely have time for lunch, so I usually don't bother. I eat breakfast and dinner, and try to keep them fairly healthy. I'm sure I get my 2000kcal a day and I'm used to it so I don't get hungry. I'm just worried that the gap between 5.30am (breakfast) and 6.30 pm (dinner) might be too long, and if I did get pregnant, it might affect the baby's development. Any ideas?
I think it's probably not a good thing to be skipping lunch entirely, whether you're pregnant or not. I know what it feels like to not really have time. I wouldn't be surprised that when you do get pregnant, you'll make the time. All of a sudden your priorities start to shift a bit and your body will become more important. Good luck!
I completely agree with everyone else. I'm fairly busy at work and never used to eat. Now that I'm pregnant my desk is covered in food. I have apples and applesauce and tons of granola bars and other easy to grab food. If I don't eat I get SUPER dizzy or SUPER nauseas so my kid doesn't let me go without eating, even if I'm too busy, I am stopped in my tracks and HAVE to shove food in my mouth.
