Skipping meals


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!

When pregnant you will NOT want to skip lunch hungry or not as the moring sickness is worse the more empty you let your tummy get

Get a big purse! And pack it with snacks. That's what I do. I am always hungry, the only reason I skip meals is my second dinner, because I am too sleepy!

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.
