I am 16 weeks pregnant with my second child and trying to do an all raw pregnancy from here on in. I did a really high raw content my last pregnancy with great results. My issue is I have no desire to eat when I am pregnant. Hence why I've found my way back to raw food as its the only food I find appealing. I know I'm undereating though and I am struggling to get around my body's lack of interest in food. I feel full all the time and have a lot of energy but I want this to last. I don't want to crash and burn. It's not an option with a 19 month old toddler who needs his mom.
Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions? I haven't been tracking my food the last week I've been doing this but if it'll help I'm totally willing to start.
How about trying to plan more frequent meals with high calorie fruits? Just remember, as your baby grows, eating raw will feel so much better, digesting so much quicker for great energy and room for growing babe. Does your toddler wake at night? If you have to get up anyway in the night, down a few bananas then. When your baby is born you'll be up at night for sure, and you could get used to eating then, may be a good way to up the cals.
