  • are you eating enough? Are you eating food, not just calories?

    Pasta used to fill me up nice, all the carbs, meat, try pasta :)

  • ummmm you do know that food stays in your system for hours so your child is always fed when they need it. you never want to eat til you're full, it's not healthy. you eat til you're satisfied

  • fact a lot of women can't eat anything in their last trimester because they get sick, so the body takes fat and nutrients from other ares in the body to feed the baby so the baby is never starving

  • Your baby is fine. Don't over eat, that is not healthy for you. Eat small meals throughout the day to help you feel full.

  • As long as you are eating the right foods and taking your viatamins your baby is fine. I myself was not always able to eat, as a matter of fact i lost 30lbs. during my entire pregnacy and my baby weighed 7lbs 11oz. You are doing a great job keep it up
