I've done some research and have found out that whey protein shakes are ok during pregnancy. I might ask my doctor about this to confirm, but that would be fantastic to control cravings and to have instead of snacking

With my last pregnancy I lost 20kg in the last trimester because of gallstones and having to really be careful with what I eat.
I wouldn't "diet" while pregnant but eating and doing some light exercise will benefit both you and the baby.

I lost about 20kg in my first pregnancy. Partly because of morning sickness and partly because I was eating well.
My ob told me at the beginning that it would be ideal to try and maintain my weight but was quite happy with the weight loss.

I seemed to put on a lot of weight (could have been water) in the first 8 weeks. At my first middy appt I was 86.4 (and I had lost masses of weight just before xmas) and that was at 9 weeks. At my last appointment at 14w I had only put on another 500gm. I have scaled down my eating though. Tried to eat more soups and homemade stuff, less bread, more water, more fruit etc... still eating enough but not bad things. Pumpkin soup is amazing and filling so I try to eat stuff that is good but will fill me up without being dreadful for me.
My slow cooker has been my saviour. I chuck the vege in at night (or meat or whatever I am cooking) then in the morning take some for lunch and dinner is ready! then I just package up the rest for lunches for the rest of the week. I have to be organised or my eating goes to pieces. And I get constipated!
I haven't been able to exercise much due to tiredness, nausea and sprained disc in back so eating properly was the only way I could do it.

I am inspired and determined not to get GD. With my BMI I am at a higher risk.
Eating healthier starting today and looking to get alot more active too. Trying to eat more wholesome foods from the ground and natural ingredients, things I can pronounce and once lived. Cutting out processed sugars and high fat additives like cream and cheese.
Cross fingers I can maintain a steady weight for the next 25weeks and if I happen to loose a few kgs along the way then even better!

I would just hate to see a first time, impressionable mum to see these posts and think its ok to diet while pregnant. Especially without talking to their GP or OB first.
