Hey girls πŸ™‚

Hope everyone is doing good.
I am back not with a bang but with viral! hello viral! I am never the sort to end with up with the seasonal Β cold but here I am down with bad cold and cough and bodyache. With pregnancy you also get low immunity. Thankfully no fever πŸ™‚ I am managing with Sualin and home remedies.
I wanted to talk about my diet in this post.
1.Morning milk tea/green tea and biscuit at 8 am. I can ONLY survive with the particular variety calledΒ Britannia 50-50Β sweet and salty. It has been my angel during morning sickness and still saves me without fail. My house is over-stocked with it.
2.Breakfast at 8:30-8:45 am. Its usually veggie poha/low-ghee paranthe/any form of eggs or pav bhaaji if its a weekend+Juice/lemonade.
3.Mid-morning snack is usually at 12 noon sharp when I get major hunger pangs and i got to eat nomatter what. I get breakfast made in huge quantity so this happens to be my second mini breakfast. A fruit or biscuit or nuts DO not help. I got to eat proper typical food!
4.Lunch at 2:30 pm. Two chapatis with any vegetable and sometimes daal and salad with coriander tomato chutney(a must). I have started detesting daal since I got pregnant so I have a little bowl or none at lunch. Avoiding curd due to cold and cough these days.
5.Evening snack at 5:30-6 pm. Usually tea or lemonade with a sandwich or daal’s very low ghee paratha(weirdly I can survive lentils in this form). Sometimes I just end up having some soup so it just depends. I basically need wholesome food.Β 
6.Dinner not before 8:30 pm (I have it with hubby so we eat together whenever he comes back from office). 1 or 2 chapatis with veggies and daal(I cant escape daal at night)+salad and chutney.Β 
Β 
So this is the basic breakdown. I raid my fridge at odd times too πŸ˜‰ Nuts and fruits I eat but haven’t mentioned above as there is no set time for it πŸ™‚
Of course I do end up eating junk and NOT proud of it. I do eat out BUT all is in moderation. I do not really like fried stuff much and have never made any fried food at home yet ever.
For all those wondering why I did not mention milk anywhere- I am little allergic to milk since childhood so can only drink rarely. I have been including lots of paneer and curd to compensate πŸ™‚
I also eat lot of soya and eating chapatis with protein powder mixed in it.
I am a non vegetarian but somehow do not want it much since I got pregnant.
Β 
Coming back to my favorite topic. I have been shopping like CRAZY..online of course. I have tons of cuteness to show. Have decided to do a separate post with all the new stuff with lots of pics as soon as I get over with this viral!

Symptoms:

1.Body ache
2.Dizziness
3.Nausea
4.Headaches everyday almost
5.Heartburn
6.Joint pain especially knees but goes away every time I apply Himalaya Herbals Pain oil and massage a bit.
7.Mood swings

Bump:

I love to play around and do stupid stuff with my pics. Might seem blurry πŸ™ sorry!
Will be back very soon with the 22nd week update πŸ™‚
Till then keep shopping and smiling
Love,
Shef

  1. Shef – I have the same dress and i still wear it πŸ˜€ it will help u afterwards as well when breast feeding yur baby πŸ™‚

  2. Hi Shefali congrats.. its nice to read your posts.. it reminds me of my pregnancy which i would closely follow..
    one suggestion is to cut down sweets after 26 th week.

    • Thanx jaishri i am not craving any sweets so i am safe i guess.. i dont have much of a sweet tooth as it is.. very rare chocolate keeps me happy..

    • whats the reason we should cut down on sweet ? weight gain ?

      • I craved for sweet thise days…. It not only increases mother’s weight..but even baby’s weight in the womb. This will be a big issue for normal delivery.. that is what my doc said…

        And with so much difficulty I refrained from sweets and chocolates πŸ™

  3. Hi Anamika…have a question for you..

  4. I think gestational diabetes.. weight gain to ek reason hai hi but can increase ur sugar levels..i know few girls suffering coz of it..

  5. oh u r so cute shefali..my weight gain is horrible yaar..u r slim..only bump is there

  6. U r soooo adorable shef! E

  8. By the way…how did you put those sunglasses on yur pic?

    • Hihi i was waiting for someone to ask πŸ˜‰ i was about to add angel wings but settled for glasses πŸ˜‰ cellphone app..am addicted to it πŸ˜€
