During your pregnancy, your baby is not as big as you, therefore she's not really a whole extra person, thus making the whole "eat for two" saying merely a myth. How much should you eat during your pregnancy?: You should base your diet on your weight gain goals and your weight gain goals should be based on your pre-pregnancy weight and height. You can figure this out by knowing your BMI. The usual recommendations are to eat about 300 more calories during the second and third trimesters when pregnant, although, because each pregnancy is specific to the woman carrying, you really need to discuss pregnancy calories with your midwife or doctor. The funny trimester is the first. Thus far, no absolute recommendations exist. Some doctors and experts agree that extra calories in the first trimester are necessary, while some say no. Talk to your own health care provider about this. If you're pregnant with multiples, you'll need a few more calories - enough to gain about 35-45 pounds during the course of your pregnancy.
