    It's hard to watch what you eat when you're pregnant - especially when you're tired, run down or have cravings.

    The best thing is to plan your meals. Eating for two shouldn't be taken literally. Eat high fiber carbs like wholemeal pasta, baked sweet potato and brown rice for energy. Don't over fill your plate and don't snack on sweets or chocolate.

    Nuts and seeds are full of omega 3 oils, great for baby's brain, if you like to snack. Tinned fish is also good.

    Drink loads of water. This won't just keep you hydrated, but fill you up too.

    Also, keep active. I walked everywhere during my pregnancy and the excess weight came off within weeks of having my baby.

    Keep an eye on your weight, but keep it balanced. Don't overeat, but don't under eat either. Your baby's health is so important - as is yours!

    Eat the same healthy foods you would otherwise. 

    When you are pregnant, make sure you are getting the right nutrition, do not worry about the weight.  Chasing a toddler around will burn off any weight you don't want!!
