Our expert says:
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Please don't stress yourself about foods all the time as the baby will be affected by constant stress. Your diet seems perfectly reasonable and should provide most of the nutrients your child needs. Because of your problem with milk (lactose intolerance?) you must also take a calcium supplement like Calcium Sandoz or Caltrate because you need about 1500 mg of calcium a day to ensure that your baby grows strong healthy bones and teeth and that you don't develop a deficiency. Also ask the dr or gynae who is supervising your pregnancy to test you for iron deficiency which is common in pregnancy and needs to be addressed by supplements. Due to the fact that you started your pregnancy with such a very low BMI of 18, you need to gain weight of at least 13 kg over the 9 months (thus about 1,5 kg a month, as you seem to be doing). Your obsession with foods, guilt about weight and eating all need to be sorted out because you could so easily transfer these fears and phobias to your child which would be a pity. If possible consult a clinical psychologist (ask your gp to refer you) so that you can learn to control these fears and phobias.
Enjoy your pregnancy and please stop stressing
