Snacking While Pregnant

It’s a given that pregnant women like me get hungry all the time. But it doesn’t mean I have to eat whenever my stomach grumbles. I have to watch what I eat to make sure I consume only the healthy stuff and not just empty calories. I also have to monitor how many times I eat in a day so I don’t gain weight that’s beyond what is expected of or normal for me.

I noticed that during weekends, I only get to eat three times a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Weekdays are a different story. During weekdays, I get to eat six times a day (three normal meals and three snacks). What can I do? I get hungry at work all the time and my hunger continues to attack a few hours before midnight.

While I can’t really choose what to eat during mealtimes, snacking gives me a lot of options. I can get whatever healthy snack I want from the supermarket or ask the hubby to buy this particular snack (craving of the moment) for me.

Speaking of snacking, I just saw the clock and thought it’s about time for to me snack on my baon. Eating time again! Haha. Ooops, but not before I check out some shopping sites to try to find the perfect birthday gift for my dad. Perhaps, I should start with because the last time we talked, he mentioned that he saw a lot of nice stuff there. 🙂
