How many calories a day do I need during pregnancy

I followed my Moms advice. Here is what she said "Eat for YOU, NOT for two". Whatever your baby needs he/she will take.

Luckily, I never had cravings. If I wanted a cookie I took one (LOL..not the whole box).

Following her advice, I only gained 19 pounds during my pregnancy.

    Good advice. I had some off cravings but they were not throughout my whole pregnancy, just random throughout.
