  • Im no Dr but my understanding is it will hurt you more. See the body will make sure the baby gets what it needs first. Keep in mind too that an unhealthy you is not good for the baby either. Good luck...Are you on WIC too? that would be my suggestion to you.

  • Take your prenatal vitamin and just eat when you can! The way I felt is if I'm hungry, the baby is. :) If I was so sick I could only eat a few meals a day and little to no snacks, I drank a lot of water and just kept my fluids up! Being pregnant takes a lot of energy out, it effects you more than it effects the baby.

  • hjust eat as well as you possibly can :) eggs are generally really cheap so maybe eat a few of those per week until you can afford other snakcs, like nuts, fresh veggies, etc. can you just eat a couple of pieces of wheat toast for breakfast? good luck :)
