So, I have been such a slacker. I don't know why. It isn't like I don't spend too much time on the internet anyway. I just haven't felt much like 'talking' I guess.
Things are going well. I finally decided once and for all I needed to be at a minimum wheat/gluten free. So, for two weeks now the only indiscretion has been some onion rings last night. I wanted at least half of the pregnancy to be 'primal/paleo'. I am still including some grains in the form of rice, and still having a higher intake of carbs compared to how I ate pre-pregnancy. I personally would not be upset if I were to go into ketosis for a bit, but honestly we don't know about the risk this would pose to the baby, so I decided it was better to play it safe.
Even with my carbs increased from 75-125 a day up to 100-150 I have been able to maintain a nice slow eight gain. I had lost a bit in the beginning, which was most likely from getting back to being primal after going off the wagon for a few weeks around Easter. I was back up to 158, then got pregnant and back to eating better and was back down to 153. I cam currently 158 again. So, breaking even? Or an eight pound gain, depending on how you want to look at it.
So, hopefully I will be better about getting on here and posting.
