Keto pregnancy 27 weeks 4 days.

Standard

Well i cheated yesterday for lunch again. I’m back on track today. We had our 3rd trimester ultrasound yesterday afternoon. We got to see our beautiful baby. She actually looks like a baby! Something in my mind switched after that appointment. It was one of those this is real moments. I guess it hit me that I really need to be taking my health seriously for our little girl. Over the last year I’ve worked my butt off trying to lose weight so that I was healthy enough to get pregnant. Now that I am I can’t go back to where i was. I can’t be a good mother if I get back to where I was. 

Tomorrow is my Friday. This week went by so quick. I hope tomorrow goes by fast because we have our redo 3D ultrasound on Friday. I cannot wait to see her again. I really hope we get some good pictures of her this time. 

For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean scramble. 2g carbs.

For lunch I had a salad. 5g carbs.

For dinner we had unless sloppy Joes. 21g carbs.

For a snack I had a couple Turkey hotdogs. 4g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 32g carbs. Only 2g carbs over my goal for the day. Not bad!

I didn’t get too much water today so hopefully I don’t get leg cramps tonight. I need to set reminder on my phone again to get me to drink.

Well i haven’t posted in a few days. I’ve been off track. Emotionally eating has really gotten me lately. I’m so stressed about work. It’s driving me crazy. 

I also had my baby shower. I planned on only having a piece of cake which is off track but not bad. Well only 6 peo ple showed up so I ate my feelings. I’m not proud of it but o just felt like no one cares enough to even show up. I guess I just expected more support from friends since this is our rainbow baby. I know that’s not a reason to cheat but it made me feel good for a few minutes. 

I’m back on track tomorrow. I’ve got two weeks until my next doctors appointment so I don’t want to gain from cheating.

This week is really dragging on. I don’t know if it’s because we just came back from fall break or the lack of sleep from not being able to get comfortable at night but I’m ready for it to be Friday! I have just been exhausted all week. Last night I went to bed about 11 and woke up at 2 then I was up for the rest of the day. I know it will probably be like that once Emma is born but I’m still miserable right now.

I did weigh myself this morning and I am down a couple pounds. My next doctors appointment is next Wednesday. I am hoping to at least lose a few more pounds. I have been working really hard these past few days to get back on track and get my weight under control. I refuse to gain anymore. This isn’t because of the baby anymore it’s just because I have been eating like crap for weeks. It’s so easy to give up but I’m determined for my little girl to keep going. I don’t want to 400lbs ever again!

For breakfast I had scrambled eggs with salsa.  10g carbs. 

For lunch I had a salsa with chicken and blue cheese dressing. 6g carbs.

For dinner we had salsa chicks.  6g carbs.

For a snack I had a couple Turkey hotdogs. 3g carbs.

Total carbs For the day 19g carbs. Way under my daily goal of 30g!

I drank about 46oz of water today!

Keto pregnancy 25 weeks and 3 days.

This week is going by super slow. It is only Tuesday. We had a staff meeting where we had to present something which I hate doing. I can teach kids all long but I’m still a nervous wreck when I present to people my own age. It went okay though I’m just happy it’s over! 

I weighed myself this morning and was surprised. I was down 2lbs from yesterday. Now I’m at the same weight I was at my doctors appointment last Wednesday! Hopefully I can keep this up. I know it will probably go up a little bit since I had that glucose drink yesterday. I want to see how much progress I can make over the next 8 days until my next appointment. I am tired of people telling me this diet is bad while you are pregnant. Considering people with gestational diabetes habe to do a low carb diet and I’m still get more than enough protein how is that bad? Plus my doctor said it’s okay to do as long as I keep my peorotein up.

For breakfast I had scrambled eggs with ham. 5g carbs.

For lunch I had chicken salad with blue cheese dressing. 5g carbs.

For dinner we had chipotle chicken with sugar free bbq sauce. 15g carbs.

For a snack I had Turkey hotdogs again. 5g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 30g. Right at my goal for the day!

As for water I got caught up doing a million things today so I completely forgot to drink water. I did get 32oz so far. I’m going to drink a little bit more before bed.

Today is my last day of fall break. Tomorrow is back to stressful teacher life! There are only 6 weeks until our next state test and Christmas break. All of this is coming up so quick. I feel like my due date is coming up just as quick. I’m actually fully back on track with keto. I feel good today I’m just hoping keto flu doesn’t pop up. 

My next doctors appointment is in 10 days. I’m praying I’m not going to gain much now that I’m back on the diet and eating healthier. I don’t need to gain more weight because at this point it’s more than just baby weight. The more I gain now the more I have to lose after Emma is born. 

For breakfast I had a ham and cheese omelette with a little bit of salsa. 9g carbs.

For lunch I had a couple Turkey hotdogs and a bag of Turkey bites. 8g carbs. 

For dinner we had bbq chicken legs with sugar free bbq sauce. 12g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 29g carbs. Under my 30g carbs a day goal! I’m hoping I can keep this up all week and not stress eat!

I know i still didn’t get enough water today. For some reason it’s harder for me to remember to drink water when I’m at home than when I’m at work. Tomorrow will be better.

Keto pregnancy- 25 weeks!

Standard

So today I’m 25 weeks into my pregnancy! Time is just flying by but I know once I’m in the 3rd trimester it will go by slow so I’m just enjoying it for now. Yesterday I was not on track at all. We drove back from our vacation and we grabbed fast food for the most part. Today i am back on track. We went grocery shopping and got keto friendly foods. I’m excited to get started again. I did have my first test already today. My mother in law came to visit. We all went out to eat. I did really good. I didn’t have anything I wasn’t supposed to have! The real test will be this week at school. I usually get super stressed and stress eat but I’m going to hold back and know it’s what’s good for baby Emma! 

For breakfast I had a bag of Turkey bites. 4g carbs.

For lunch we went to applebees. I had bourbon street chicken and shrimp with broccoli on the side. I also had a house salad with ranch. 15g carbs.

For dinner we had pizza casserole. Mine had Alfredo sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. 5g carbs.

For a snack I had some Turkey hotdogs with mustard. 3g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 27g carbs! Under my goal of 30 g carbs for the day. 

I really need to start drinking more water. I haven’t been drinking as much as I need to. Tomorrow i will have to start drinking more through the day.

I haven’t posted in a really long time. I had to stop keto for a bit because I kept getting sick trying to eat the stuff I used to. I guess now that im in the second trimester my body is doing better. I don’t get sick very much anymore. I only get neasous when I’m hungry. So today was my first day back on track. I kind of just stopped the diet because I thought I’m pregnant and I really don’t want to do it while pregnant because it’s hard with all the cravings. I went to my sister-in-laws baby shower the other day. I absolutely hated the way I looked in the pictures. I looked fat.  I don’t have a bump yet because I am so big. It makes me so sad that I can’t fully enjoy this pregnancy because I just feel huge and not because of the baby. 

I’m back on track today.  No more excuses. I have to start again.  Ive already gained 23lbs back and I’m not even half way through my pregnancy! I don’t want to gain anymore other than what the baby needs.

Breakfast I have two cheese sticks. 4g carbs.

Lunch I had a salad. The package says 26 carbs but I didn’t eat the corn or tortilla chips that came with it. I’ll just go with 20g carbs to be on the safe side.

Dinner we had buffalo chicken. 3g carbs.

Total carbs for the day 27g carbs. Not bad!

I’m trying to drink as much water as possible to be hydrated for tomorrow! Our gender ultrasound is tomorrow so we want to see what baby is!
