  • Eat small healthy portions of food every 1 to 2 hours or if you start craving something even if it isn't that healthy i say go for it.

  • Drink whole milk. You can even put chocolate ovaltine in it.

  • Eat anyway? Whatever appeals to you.....Chocolate milk was appealing to me. A milk shake now and then.... But try to eat something healthy (and appealing) every few hours as suggested and then you won't have to worry. Don't stress about the weight intself as much as just knowing you are feeding yourself and your baby!

  • Eat a lot of good carbs (fruits and vegs) every 2-3 hours whether you are hungary or not. Fruits in particular are higher in carbs and should pack on the weight. Also, friend of mine was drinking V8 fusion which has fruits and veg in the drink and gained a bunch of weight and she was below weight when she got pg.

  • oh don't worry about the weight me, you'll be eating like a pig in slop soon! lol. the real challenge will be taking all that "slop" off your thighs afterwords. until then, enjoy eating whichever your body and baby seem to need. soon enough you'll be piling the pounds on quicker than ever.

  • You seem pretty heavy for being 11 weeks. I also didn't realize someone that young could grasp typing. You are really gifted.
