Are you eating healthier, less healthier, or about the same during your PG/postpartum?

Ummm, I am trying to eat healthier. But some days I fail miserably

My first weight loss goal is to lose 21lbs, which is 10% of my body weight

When I was taking the Bradly classes one of the thing they went into detail was nutrition, I won't get into it, but they wanted us to have two eggs a day for protein. I can't remember why that was, but as soon as my memory comes back, I'll let you know

I think maybe it has to do with pre-eclampsia? The protein in the eggs help prevent it. I think I read that somewhere.

I am *trying* to make better food choices but I'm in that stage where if something sounds good, I have to have THAT and only that or I will just go hungry and be miserably nauseous. So in between those bad meals I crave (like chinese) I try and eat better.

ugh quite the opposite - but not for a lack of trying! pre-pregnancy i ate a ton of fruits & veggies...with grilled chicken & fish. Now i feel like i've eaten nothing but carbs practically for months (blah) and what little meat i can keep down has been red meat, not fish or chicken...i keep hoping this will turn around soon so i can eat better (esp more veggiesk, which i have an odd aversion to right now)

Probably about the same. I didn't really have food aversions this time, just nausea. For awhile I ate worse because I was just too tired to cook properly. Now that has stopped (mostly).

I'm with Lara. Morning sickness resulted in a carb overload (I will never eat another bagel so long as I live!), and now the m/s has been replaced with reflux. I try, but it is very difficult. Also, I am following all of the recommendations to the letter which means no soft cheeses, no lunch meat/deli meat, no soft yolks (I don't like hard yolks, so this means only scrambled for me), etc.
