Pretty normal for me? Currently 30+4 and my days usually look something like:

B; oatmeal with powder (protein, Maca, supergreens, etc.) banana, muesli/nuts/fruit topper

L; pb on toast, an apple and a snack bar or something akin to that. Maybe a packet of chickpea puffs, or something.

D; hot meal (usually pasta or rice with veg, protein, etc.)

Snack; toast or crumpet or yogurt with cereal and fruit.

Later on; mug of hot cashew or almond milk

Oats, bananas, potato and leek soup, bagels and earth balance, water and ginger ale. Bread or Toast.
I was throwing up and had food aversions until 36 weeks.

I honestly depends on how bad ur morning sickness and indigestion is. I usually don’t eat anything after 7 so I can avoid being kept up all night with indigestion i’m 26 weeks now. Lots of fruit and salad mainly plus water juice and pulses.

Random food but constantly chewing on something. I’m a huge snacker and pregnancy only makes it worse. My big thing with last baby was greens. The more the better. Cooked raw with vinegar chips sprinkled on top I literally ate sautéed greens by the bowl full, with a side salad of more greens.

I’m 20 weeks and I feel like I eat like a hound… haha. My brekkie porridge with maple syrup, chia seeds, linseed and a banana… with some coffee… the lunch is either a green smoothie… this consists of spinach, kale, seeds, nuts, kiwi, cucumber, avocado carrot etc. Or a veggie wrap… dinner is usually massive stir fry curry pasta etc… then snacks on dark chocolate rice cakes, different salted nuts, fruits, soy yogurts… making myself hungry as I type…
