It is important to make sure you are consuming everything that your body and the developing baby need.
And no, you don’t have to follow that old mentality that pregnant have to “eat for two”. Eating better doesn’t mean eating more, in most cases.

During pregnancy, your body works more efficiently, making the most of the energy that you eat.
So, in the first six months of pregnancy most women don’t even have to eat any more than I could eat.
In the last three is it advisable to eat 200 to 300 calories more, but that doesn’t mean almost nothing, since 200 calories are equivalent to mere two slices of toast with butter, for example.
Guide for your appetite, which can vary depending on the stage of pregnancy. In the first few weeks he can vanish, because of nausea.
But sometimes, especially at night (or in the middle of the night), you are likely to feel the sudden need to eat something to fill a hole in my stomach.
In the second quarter, your appetite must be equal to, or slightly larger. In the third, you must be hungry, but you have to be careful because they will be more frequent heartburn and indigestion.
Which foods pregnant have to avoid?
Pregnant can eat almost everything, but should avoid some types of foods. They are:
• fish and raw seafood, such as oysters and sushi (sushi can be ingested if the fish has been frozen before).
• White rind cheeses such as brie and camembert, and cheeses with fungi, like roquefort and gorgonzola. Also avoid cheese fresh type (or “mines”), which can be made with non-pasteurized milk. The problem is the possible presence of a bacterium that causes listeriosis, a disease that can harm the baby.
• beef undercooked or raw (such as carpaccio), undercooked pork and raw eggs (like cake batter, eggnog, fried egg with runny and some desserts–musses, for example). The precaution is to avoid bacteria that can affect the baby.
• liver steak and kids, to avoid the overhead of retinoica form of vitamin A, which can be harmful to an unborn baby.
• Dogfish, swordfish and shark, which can contain dangerous levels of mercury. The tuna should be limited to one can per week or two fresh fillets per week for the same reason. Other fish are safe and good for the baby and you. The recommendations regarding mercury apply to anyone who is thinking about getting pregnant and breastfeeding period.
• If you have in the family people with allergies (nuts, cashews or peanuts, for example), it’s good to avoid these foods during pregnancy.
• liquor. Alcohol consumption can cause serious problems in the baby, so experts recommend cutting the alcohol in pregnancy.
• Food and drinks with caffeine. Do not take more than two cups of coffee a day, and, if possible, prefer drinks descafeinadas.

It is important to take vitamin supplements during pregnancy?
In an ideal world–in which didn’t exist seasickness, for example, would not be so difficult to maintain a balanced diet.
But, in the real world, is more guaranteed a prenatal vitamin supplement to make sure that your body will receive all the nutrients you need. Talk to your obstetrician.
Folic acid is an important supplement, which should be taken up before becoming pregnant, and during the first three months of pregnancy.
This type of deficiency vitamin B is linked to neurological problems in the formation of the baby, such as spina bifida. The minimum recommendation is 400 mcg of folic acid a day.
Doctors usually prescribe a more complete supplement, with various vitamins and iron, from the third month. In this phase the nausea improves and the vitamin is more well-tolerated by the stomach.
If you are a vegetarian or have any health problems like diabetes, gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia or anemia, or if in the past I’ve had a low birth weight baby, the doctor will likely have special guidelines for your food.
Or he may refer you to a dietitian.
Remember, however, that is not always the vitamin is good. Vitamin A supplements contain retinol, for example, which may be toxic to the baby in large quantities. Only take what the doctor recommends for you.
Pregnant can make arrangements?
Dieting during pregnancy can harm the baby and you too. Depending on the type of scheme, you can stay with iron deficiency, folic acid and other vitamins and minerals is important.
Remember that fat is part of pregnancy. Eat well and in the right amount is especially important for pregnant women less than 20 years.
Women who eat well and gain the recommended are more likely to have healthy babies. If you’re eating healthy foods and is getting fat, relax: this is what has to happen.
Who was pretty skinny before getting pregnant has more “tolerance” to fatten.
If you were overweight before becoming pregnant, can improve the quality of your food and investing in physical activity (always in consultation with the doctor before).
What is the best way to gain weight in pregnancy?
Weight gain in pregnancy varies from woman to woman, and depends on several factors, including how much each weighed before becoming pregnant.
The average weight gain is usually 8 to 15 kg. But, instead of thinking on the scale, focus on quality than eat: plenty of fruit, vegetables, good amounts of protein, calcium and iron.
Keep in mind that you will gain weight gradually over the course of gestation, with less gain in the first quarter and biggest gain in last.
How many meals do you need per day?
Even if you’re not hungry, you better not let the long empty stomach.
It is advisable to do five or six small meals instead of three large meals, especially if you are in a lot of pain with nausea, heartburn or indigestion.
There’s no reason to give up everything you like just because you’re pregnant. But it’s not good to let that processed foods, snacks and candy form the basis of your diet.
At the time of eating that treat, try placing a banana in the microwave with a little honey and juice of half an orange. Or take a vitamin yogurt shake with fruit.
You just have to win if you can find a healthier snack.
