Daily Calorie Intake?
How many Calories should an average weight person consume? I've read that generally you only need 100-200 more calories during pregnancy.
Before I got pregnant I was trying to lose 5-10 lbs so I was eating really healthy and only consuming 1200-1500 calories per day. I've kept up with that just because I'm scared if I up my calories to 1800-2000 I'll gain weight like a balooga since my body isn't used to it.
I am 5'4 and about 130lbs. Currently 11weeks and haven't gained any weight yet.
I gained 33lbs with my first pregnancy and 30 with my second. I am a lot older now in my 3rd pregnancy and scared to death that baby weight will be a struggle to lose this time.
