Im 17wks and I hardly eat anything. I eat 3-4 rich tea biscuits for breakfast, few dry crackers and crisps for lunch and a tin of soup for dinner. I still feel sick all the time and im on anti-sickness meds. Ive been told that you only need to increase your calorie intake in your third trimester by 200-300 a day. Hope ive helped, if in doubt look it up on the internet or ask your doctor. Good luck.

Everyone always tells me that too. But you shouldn't overfill or over stuff on food. Your body knows when you're full and it knows when you're hungry. So eat until your full and tell everyone to leave you alone. :D

We all have that idea that because ur preggo u have to be eating all the time, but that's not necessary at all. Be comfortable and be healthy!

Im the same way. I dont evem eat any more than I did before I got pregnant. I just eat healthier foods instead of junk foods and drink alooot of water. But my doctor got on to me becausr ive lost five pounds since ive been pregnant and im 19 weeks but I think its becausr I went from junk foods and mountain dew all day to eating fruits and veggies and strictly water. But as long as you body is telling you your satisfied from food then your fine.
