Our expert says:
Congratulations on your pregnancy. Many women do not experience so-called 'morning sickness', so I hope you don't get any for the full 9 months. Your diet seems reasonable, but I would like to suggest that you have 2 additional servings of milk or yoghurt a day to provide the 1500 mg of calcium you and baby need every day (despite the calcium tablet). Also ask the doctor who is monitoring your pregnancy to check your blood iron levels, so that he/she can prescribe an iron-folic acid supplement if this should be necessary. Because you are starting your pregnancy with a low BMI of 20,3, there is no harm in having a snack like the chips. To read more about various aspects of pregnancy and breastfeeding click on 'DietnFood' and 'Eating throughout life' and read the section on 'Pregnancy'. Take your cue about exercise from your body. If you feel tired, rest, when you feel more energetic (usually during the 2nd trimester), go for walks in the fresh air or do yoga to relax and create the best possible scenario for the baby. Always check with your dr before you do any exercise while you are pregnant.
I hope you have a wonderful and fulfilling pregnancy.
