Back to Logging Meals

Hello. I'm back after my long absenteeism. My midwife has suggested that I start logging my food again. That being said. Here is my log for today...

My 2 Cents:  Oh my, here I had thought I had increased my food intake during this pregnancy and it looks like my daily calories are still to low. I was stuffed all day. I increased my protein intake as was suggested by my midwife and that probably played a huge part and I also added a snack right before bed. I feel like I noshed all day and my caloric intake was still to low. Best to keep an eye on this for the sake of baby. The good news is I don't think I did to terribly bad on my carbohydrates. Lets see what tomorrow brings.
