Nuts! I love fresh pecans (you can store them in the freezer to keep them fresh). They fill you up, and are super healthy!

I was worried about my weight gain too but my OB said not to worry and eat away at what I wanted, the weight would be gone later. My last trimester I gave into my cravings and wants I gained a whole 40 pounds by the time I reached 39 weeks, gave birth and went down by 19, my son is now 3 weeks old and I am 10 pounds away from what I weighed before pregnancy. Don't worry too much about the weight Breast feeding helps you to loose the weigh FAST as far as vitamins etc just take your prenatal.

The nutritionist at WIC told me to eat whatever I was craving because that's what the baby needs. I ate an obscene amount of strawberries. But I also made sure I ate other things too to stay healthy for baby. I would just eat strawberries as a snack. Lol

Salads, and lots of green vegetables. Fruit is good but it has a lot of sugar in it and even though they are natural sugars they can still make you gain weight. I would try a low carb diet. When you do eat carbs make sure they are the good ones like sweet potatoes or oats. Carb are what make you gain weight mostly so try to limit that and when you eat carb eat them know the morning time that way you work them off thro out the day

I had smoothies like every day and I ended up gaining so. Much. Weight. Lol like 50 lbs....try to eat a little more healthy. Try oatmeal in the morning..almond milk instead of cows milk, try quinoa for a healthier grain! Lots of green veggies they're so full of folic acid! Don't load up on sugars and Pop and drink a ton of water! Those are the things I look back on now and wish I was more strict about, seriously. And id go on walks with my husband or bf! Or doggy, or friend lol
