Geez, I can't stop eating! I'm eating every 1 1/2 hours. I hope this is normal because I don't want to be gaining more than I should. I feel guilty enough that I haven't even worked out since I became pregnant!

 

When did you girls notice your appetite increase?

I've had to eat every 1.5-2 hours because of "morning" sickness. But now that that is over (knocking on wood) I was fine for about 3 days with my normal eating schedule, and now i have to eat constantly again! I just try to make them healthier snacks. since you are only supposed to eat 300 extra cals a day, I try to keep that in mind.

So, for my first breakfast (7am) i have two pieces of toast and a half a glass of milk. Second breakfast (9:30) I have a bowl of fruit and a hard boiled egg (I only eat the white). Then for elevensies (which today is at 10:30!) i eat a 100 calorie pack or a treat (today is banana nut bread). Then I'll have lunch. Then I'm usually good from lunch until dinner... but I sometimes need a 3pm snack so i try to eat another type of 100 calorie pack or a banana or something simple.

Ha ha, you sound like me! I don't have morning sickness anymore (sometimes a bit in the evenings still), but my appetite has sky-rocketed so I'm back to eating my little meals and snacks all day long.
Example- this was my intake yesterday:

7:00a piece of toast
8:00a whole wheat bagel and OJ
9:30a handful of almonds and cashews
11:00 nectarine
12:00 chicken breast and mashed potatoes (frozen food)
1:30 no-sugar jello cup
2:30 string cheese
4:00 apple
5:00 a lot of chips and salsa (i'm obsessed I have this everyday!)
6:30 vegeterian sausage patty with cheese and whole wheat english muffin ( i love eating breakfast at night)
7:30 brownie (couldn't resist)
9:00 cottage cheese and some crackers
And I love water, so I drink tons of it through out the day

So, I hope this doesn't sound excessive, because this has been the standard eating schedule I have had now.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
