Hi mrsp:) my days eating goes something like this: Breakfast: bowl of wheatabix, glass of tropicana and one slice of wholemeal brown bread Lunch: Bowl of chopped berries, 2/3 mandarins and apples, sandwich of some kind. usually ham and coleslaw. Dinner: chicken fajitas/thai curry/chops and spuds/homemade pizza also I've a massive sweet tooth, so invariably I've a bar of chocolate every day. Hope that helps :) [url=http://pregnancy.baby-gaga.com/:2i366rxh][img:2i366rxh]http://tickers.baby-gaga.com/p/dev275pr___.png[/img:2i366rxh][/url:2i366rxh]

Hi MrsP2010, my daily menu consists of following: Breakfast: Bowl of all bran and glass of OJ Lunch:Salad roll or ham salad roll, or bowl of soup. Dinner: Meat 3 veg/lasange/fish/Stir fries. I more prone to salty food so crisps are my down fall.

Porridge every morning with sprinkle of nuts and seeds, blueberries and lately strawberries, since they are in season. Pot of yoghurt. Half a small glass of orange juice with my iron supplement. Small black coffee when I get to work. Apple and/or clemintine for mid-morning snack. Litre of water by lunchtime. Homemade ham or chicken sambo on brown for lunch, or else left over home-made bolognese or chicken curry from previous night. A few cherry tomatoes which I bring for snacks but often have with lunch. Yoghurt for afternoon snack. Litre of water by dinner-time. Veg stir-fry/mackeral and couscous with veggies/roast chicken/chicken curry/pasta with bolognese or pulses/veggie omelette/scrambled egg (if feeling lazy) for dinner (all home-made). Nettle or Fennel tea. I don't have a sweet tooth but if I reach for something sweet it's usually a square or two of dark chocolate or else homemade scone or rock bun if I've been baking.

[quote="ttcwithpatience":3l1pr76q]Hi Traford, have you being taking the nettle tea and fennel tea throughout your pregnancy as I was wondering which herbal tea i could take myself.[/quote:3l1pr76q] Hi, Yes, I drink them regularly anyway and kept it up throughout pregnancy. I couldn't find anything to say it was not advisable so I kept it up. I did find information saying that peppermint is best avoided as it can stimulate contractions, but I'm sure it would probably require large quantities to do that.

I have cereal at 7am when hubby goes to work, might not eat again til 2 or so and not sure what I have every day, maybe a sandwich or I might cook a chicken fillet and some onion rings, dinner at 8pm when hubby comes home but I only pick at mine, might have some chocolate during the day as a snack.. But baby is doing ok weighing in at 2 pounds 1 Oz at 25+5 yesterday so he's a little pudding

You need to keep your healthy calories and blood-sugar up though. Look after yourself!
