  • you should get small regular meals throughout the day whether or not you want them. if you are starving yourself you are starving your baby. the weight you are and will gain is from your babies growth not from food. do not be worried about gaining weight from food. you will gain a good 40 pounds regardless of how much you eat but you need fish be careful no mercury, protein, green veggies, fruit. lots of milk. if you want a snack late at night get it.

  • Eat whenever you feel like it and don't force yourself to eat when you're not hungry cuz it can make you sick. Good luck!

  • Be careful what you eat. I ate really bad with my first pregnancy and ended up with hypertension and severely high BP. All I ate were sweets..seriously.. i rarely got a good meal in. Somehow my baby only ended up being 6lbs and somehow I didn't get GD but still, I did wind up with other problems. If you're only hungry late that's fine but eat something healthy, not bad. Especially if you go to bed shortly after, that's really bad for your metabolism. Eat a bowl of cereal or a sandwhich or something like that. GL!
