Hi there! I'm nursing and pregnant, too. My nursling is 21 mo. I agree with the other poster -- if you eat to hunger, you should be just wonderful. That said, do you usually get morning sickness with your pregnancies? If so, make sure you eat high protein foods when you feel good enough and drink plenty of water.

With my last pregnancy I lost weight during the first trimester and I have this time, too (but less than 1st time). I eat when I'm hungry and always have a snack before bed (otherwise, I'm up at 2 to eat). So far, so good.

The food always goes to the fetus first and then to your toddler then to you.

Best wishes! Hope this pregnancy is smooth sailing!

just calorie wise, the fetus needs only about 300 additional calories over what you normally eat -- which is equivalent to a glass of skim milk.
if you're hungry eat, just make it worthwhile and not stuff like chips and candy.
protein, protein, protein. 80-100 grams a day.
