Pregnant Pounds

It isn’t the most fun thing to gain weight during pregnancy. But, as my husband reminds me … it’s for the baby. Then it all seems ok.

But still, where are those pounds coming from? Better yet, where should they be coming from?

Baby Center emailed me a great list of healthy snacks to keep on hand:

  • Fruit
  • Raisins
  • Yogurt
  • Homemade Trail Mix
  • Salad Bars
  • Baby Carrots
  • String Cheese
  • Orange Juice
  • Whole Grain Cereal & Oatmeal
  • Cottage Cheese

And, of course, the foods to avoid … ramen noodles, soda, commercial lunces, frozen meals and iceberg lettuce.

Happy eating pregnant mamas! Remember those pounds are for baby’s well-being … make every calorie count!
