Our expert says:
Your diet is perfectly reasonable for pregnancy and is obviously not too high in energy as you have not really picked up any weight. If a woman starts her pregnancy with a normal weight (which I presume you did?) then you can gain between 12 and 16 kg over the 9 months, thus between 1,3 and 1,7 kg per month. I think you can certainly have 2 slices of lean cold meat (cooked beef or chicken breast for example) and 2 slices of medium-fat cheese or even better fat-free cottage cheese with your lunch (the latter is rich in protein and calcium and low in fat).
Wishing you all the best for the rest of your pregnancy
