nature's way??

it's 5:40 am. i've been up since about 3:45 am. i'm assuming this is nature's way of preparing me for the sporatic late night sleep schedule i will soon be embracing. instead of fighting my sleeplessness...i decided to just give in and come downstairs to eat some cereal. i was hungry anyways. it's going to be a long wait for my 10 o'clock snack..but i'm going to have to fight through it. i've found out that its really really hard to avoid overeating while pregnant. i'd say i was a pretty strict food consumer before i was pregnant, and i always prided myself on the fact that i'd continue to be that way throughout pregnancy. what a suprise i had in store :) I'm starving all the time...i could literally eat all day. proper nutrition is very important in order to grow a healthy little baby...but all the experts stress how important it is to not over eat and gain extra weight that isn't needed. needless to say...i've been trying to be very careful lately...and its taking lots of will power, but i've been doing better...not great but better. i try to just have breakfast, a 10 am snack, lunch, a 3ish/4ish snack, and dinner. someone needs to come over and finish the damn apple pie that's sitting on my kitchen counter.
