I've gotten many requests to do a post about my diet and nutrition during pregnancy. So, I'm finally getting this posted! Basically, I've made a few lists of things that I have eaten during my pregnancy. I'll be honest - I haven't been perfect with my nutrition. In fact, I've indulged in doughnuts, cold stone, burgers, and captain crunch more than I'd care to share. However, over all I've tried to really make an effort to eat clean and to give my baby the nutrients necessary to help him grow big and strong. For me it was especially important to keep an eye on my diet since I was on bedrest for 16 weeks with very minimal physical movement or activity. Put simply, a healthy diet was key to keeping me from blowing up like a whale.
Without further ado, here are some lists of things I ate regularly throughout my pregnancy! I hope these are helpful!!
