In reality you could honestly eat what you want, you just need to be prepared for potential negatives down the road from it. The biggest being weight gain and possibility having a hard time losing it.

You really just need to see what your doctors say about lifting. Some give no restrictions (my midwife never gave me any) but my sisters OB said nothing over 10 pounds. It just depends on them and your pregnancy. If you have complications they likely want you lifting nothing. If there are no problems they don't often give restrictions. At most they would probably say nothing over 15-20 pounds and could fax it to your employer or put you on light duty.

You're probably fine. People smoke meth while pregnant and their babies turn out fine. As for the heavy lifting, you might talk to your doctor. I don't think its usually recommended while pregnant.

And they might, you'd have to talk to your doctor and see. Some doctors have no restrictions, others have dozens. Is it that it's hard or you're just not wanting to?

And continuously eating junk may very well cause that. Cravings can be annoying, but you can control them and don't always have to eat what you want. In reality you only need 500 extra calories a day which can easily be achieved with small snacks.

Ask your doctor about the heavy objects, but you really need to watch your diet. You shouldn't be just eating junk food and everything else constantly, pregnant or not. You need protein, vitamins, minerals and your Prenatals don't supplement an unhealthy lifestyle.
