b) My midwife says I need to eat more vegetables, although I don't know what she was worried about since at my last visit I had only lost more weight in this pregnancy. Now that I'm eating again, I have been trying to generally "do it right." But there is something so irritating to me when I read some of the "pregnancy diet" literature out there because I think they expect you to eat at least 8.5 meals a day to get all that food in! There is no way I can eat 12 (!!) servings of whole grains in one day without waking up every few hours to feed my face. I guess since I am already up rushing to the bathroom to empty my bladder one to two times a night, I could just keep the rice cooker or crockpot and a salad in the bathroom and eat an extra meal or two each night before heading back to bed. I mean, seriously. When you're pregnant, who wants to eat 5 servings of green and yellow vegetables each day? Should I have a handful of spinach with my granola in the morning? I'm feeling good if I eat one or two servings... so I decided not to stress (and not to get angry at the "rules") and just ignore it all. I eat generally healthy food (now that I'm not so sick all the time) and a balanced diet which could always be improved. But I have never been able to successfully carry off a diet in non-pregnant life. What makes people think pregnant ladies can do it now when our tastes, needs, hormones, and desires are so different?
