Recording my Meals for the Week

So I've decided to record all my meals for this week - each day I'll post what I'm eating, how I'm feeling (which hasn't changed much) and how my blood sugars are responding, changing or staying the same.

The only issues I'm having right now have to do with sleeping - I keep waking up throughout the night with sharp pains in my hips and have to switch sides quite often. Needless to say I'm not getting much sleep as a result but I'm trying different methods of using pillows and hopefully we will be getting a new much-needed mattress soon!

So far I don't have many cravings, no food aversions at all and actually have less of an appetite rather than a larger one.

I'm still keeping active everyday with walking at least 3-5km, 15 min strength-training workouts at home and either prenatal pilates or 30-45min prenatal yoga classes at home. I'm joining Goodlife again though because the weather has just been so cold lately I'm feeling like I need more cardio. It's not always easy to get the amount of walking in that I want to, but at least I have my commute to ensure that ;)

At 24 weeks this week I'm feeling great, a little stiff in the mornings and tight around my growing bump in the evenings. I've gained 17 pounds so far which isn't too bad, and all of my clothes pre-pregnancy still fit - other than my bras ;)

The only thing that worries me slightly is the need for more insulin, which can lead to more weight gain and just not an overall great feeling. So far the only changes that have happened are through the night - instead of being low for the first 5 months I am now rising mid-night to around 8 or 9…which is quite odd but I'm taking it day by day for now because things can change so much!

Hopefully people will find this helpful, whether Diabetic or Pregnant, or not.

Happy Monday and Happy March! The first post will come tonight :)
