This isn’t the time for drastic diets so we won’t be doing that here. In fact, if anyone recommends that you cut any major food groups out of your diet while you are pregnant, let that be a red flag. Following an unbalanced diet (such as one that is too heavy on the protein and severely restricting carbohydrates) could lead to stunted growth and development of the baby.
My goal at this point is to just ensure you are on the right track with diet quality and have goals to aim for without feeling restricted. I have been pregnant twice. I understand what it’s like to have to find the balance for what baby needs, what baby wants, and what will keep baby from making you lose your lunch!
It’s very important to learn about the next milestone before you approach it. As you enter mid- pregnancy, we will begin to discuss breastfeeding and planning your postpartum Nutrition Care!
