foods to eat

Hey guys! So im currently 5 weeks along (pretty early still) but I have an issue with gaining weight. I had this issue before getting pregnant, but im more concerned about it now. As of yesterday I weighed 117, when normally my weight stays about 125.
What are foods that I can eat that will help me gain and keep it as well as still be good for the baby?
Also, what would be the best way to ensure im eating enough throughout the day, and not just a couple "meals for two" and then snacks in between?

Peanut butter is good for you and baby, & it will fatten you up. My cousin had juvenile diabetes & couldn't gain weight abd that's what his doctor recommended. He went through a few jars a week. He was 6'4 & only weighed 130. After he gained he got up to 185 & looked great. Just eat healthy abd b you & baby will be fine.  Good luck & congratulations.  :)

I haven't had either of those yet. Well other than feeling nauseous if I don't eat for so long

Yup I lost about 7 lbs in the first trimester.  I've gained it back plus some lol. My diet hasn't changed since becoming pregnant.  I'd say just slip in some fruits and veggies everyday.  I eat whatever I crave as well. I worry about gaining weight but I can easily lose it after baby.  Just take your prenatals and enjoy it while you can!
