LilliV : Ofc I agree, maybe I was misunderstood. All I meant is that as long as we carry these other people inside us, we all have to respect them and be careful, not overdo it, etc.

Eat when you are hungry, drink enough water so you never get thirsty, and you’ll be good.  Don’t overthink it.

Eat normally, although i know that when I was first pregant my doctor said to increase my calorie intake about 200 calories in the beginning and then it steadily increased

baller123 :  I had grand plans of healthy eating throughout pregnancy but I ended up with bad nausea and throwing up every day from weeks 6 to 18 so that went straight out the window haha. I ate what I could keep down, which was essentially cheese and crackers every day for 12 weeks. I have no idea how many calories I consumed but I was taking prenatals and fish oil anyway so I feel like that covered nutrition. I’m 31 weeks now and baby is perfectly healthy 😂 Don’t stress, just eat what you can. I don’t weigh myself so I don’t know how much weight I’ve put on, and I’ve only been weighed twice by the midwife. At my last weigh in (24 weeks I think?) I’d put on 13lb since I became pregnant.

Another thing to note is food restrictions – they advise you don’t eat pre-prepared salads or sandwiches while pregnant so when I’m out or on holiday I usually need to resort to fries or cereal bars which isn’t very healthy. Ironic really that the safest foods on the go are highly processed. 

 ETA I always avoid sweeteners for health reasons but my OB put me on low dose aspirin at 16 weeks for the remainder of my pregnancy – which contains both saccharin AND sodium lauryl sulphate (which I don’t even use in my shampoo) soooo plan all you like, nothing ever quite goes to plan!!
