Hey ladies!
I have two unrelated (well, both pretaining to pregnancy) quesitons...

1. How many carbs did you try to stick to in a day? I'm having a lot of food aversions but of course not from carbs or things I shouldn't be eating. For example, I wanted pizza for supper last night SO bad but didn't want to throw my sugar out of whack. Did you girls stick to a strict diet or did you allow yourself pizza or other things high in carbs?

2. I am 7 wks along. From the beginning I've had sore breasts and last week had nausea. However, this week it seems all symptoms have just disappeared. Is this normal or should I worry?

Thanks you girls...guess you can tell this is my first! :)

Congrats on your pregnancy!

1. I don't have a specific number of carbs that I limit myself to each day. My general rule is to only eat the type and amount of carbs that I can while still maintaining good blood sugar control. Yes, I have had days where I eat pizza for dinner. However, I know that I can't just have carbs for dinner without a HUGE spike, so if I do pizza, then I also have to consume a lot of protein with it to level out the spike. Maybe order some chicken along with the pizza?

2. I had sore breasts I think around weeks 7-10, and had severe, all-day, every-day nausea from about weeks 6-10. All of the sudden one morning I woke up and the symptoms were completely gone. I was very scared (my first baby too ;) and called my OB who was very reassuring. I guess it is completely normal to have those symptoms mysteriously disappear. I'm currently 27 weeks and everything looks great!
