Anyone know just how many calories we are supposed to be taking in at this stage? I still don't have much of an appetite and most days food doesn't appeal to me that much. I just want to make sure I am in the ballpark of the suggested caloric intake!
My doc says 2,000 calories until 3rd trimester starts and then 2300-2500 calories!
Mine says the same but with still being sick - she's far more concerned that I at least maintain the weight I am at now. Sometimes this is easier said than done. I was a bit over weight (10 lbs) to start with so that may be why she's not totally concerned with me gaining. If you're nervous about it, it doesn't hurt to call your OB or bring it up at your next appointment - she may have some suggestions for you. Even though I am still getting sick and still feel sick - I still get hungry and have cravings.
