When I say I don't wake early enough I wake at 11am and do family lunch at12:30 by the time I wake up proper and shore its 12:00. If I wake before 9:30 I might eat breakfast. I then have dinner about 7ish no meat or anything other then salad due to pregnancy. Just can't stomach a lot. I know I eat a lot of cheese it is low fat stuff as is the milk. Cordial is diet too. I just don't think to mention it. I hardly snack after dinner usually on fruit or veg if I do.
I am not a fan of cereals and really carbs are carbs.. Weather it's cereal or bread.
Vicpark said it perfectly. You need guidance from a professional, if not for you, for your baby. However the hospital cannot force you to see one.
Sorry I meant to say I know I eat a lot of dairy but I a also the first generation in Australia (about 150years) along my mums line not to be born on a dairy farm. I don't have as much dairy as my mum (3x300ml milk coffees a day plus cheese at lunch, milk/ yogurt at breakfast and ice cream at dinner) or my dad (3x600ml milos a day) I also have been told my ones have maximum density. My mother at 65 had density of a 27yo, my grandmother at 95 had the density of a 31yo. I foresee no osteo in my future as I also have excellent vit d. Most of my friends take supplements for both calcium & vit d and they have a so called healthy diet recommended by a dietician... Not changing my good calcium & vit d for that.
I HATE plain water and its a massive struggle to get it down, so I feel your pain!
I keep a big jug of water in the fridge with a wedge of lemon. Much easier to drink!
If you dont want to go, dont go. Hospital cant force you.
Personally, I dont think it will do you any good anyway. You seem to be very set in your diet ways and keen to defend your habits regardless of any advice or information given that suggests change. Hope the rest of your pregnancy is uneventful and pleasant. Enjoy your sleep ins while you can
Going to the dietician isn't something you have to do, no one can make you. I just don't think it will hurt, especially if you go in with an open mind.
