    While pregnant, you're eating for just two, whilst the old saying goes -- but exactly what are you currently two supposed to be eating?Get all essential vitamins and minerals daily. Meaning keeping the prenatal vitamins you started just before becoming pregnant, along with eating a wholesome diet.Fill your plate with leafy greens, fruits, veggies, and whole grains (like wheat breads and cereals). Get a lot of calcium-rich foods like broccoli and low-fat milk and yogurt, to help build your baby's bones and teeth. Adhere to lean meats like chicken and turkey.

    Instead of asking a student forum, I think any sound person would look for information like this on the NHS website or something. Definitely more trustworthy.

    Not really in a position to advise, but I know that "eating for two" is definitely *not* the right idea. Best to see your doctor or NHS website as others have said.

    Feel free to go and speak to your local pharmacist if you don't want the hassle of booking an appointment with your GP surgery

    OP I was told by the midwife that pate, soft cheese, mouldy cheese and alcohol are no go during pregnancy. Limit yourself with tuna and salmon as well (one portion a week I think) Also make sure you eat your steak and meat are well cooked in general.

    Sounds like a plan!

    One thing I didn't completely realise before, is that some types of tuna are very harmful to the child (Albacore tuna), due to the high levels of mercury.

    Be sure not to smoke and drink, either Good luck!

    On topic, sources rich in calcium, and iron would be good; supplements are to compliment the food that you eat. The foods that you have mentioned seem to be good. But as someone else has pointed out, it is probably not helpful to think that you 'are eating for two.'

    Don't listen to that s**t. He doesn't know anything; and doesn't seem to be the nicest chap.
    And well done on your degree!
    ^^THIS.

    At least you have been to university, and got a degree, and a good grade as well. There's no such thing as a 'mickey mouse degree' to me.

    Don't eat for two you only need an extra 150 calories in the first trimester and 300 in the last so a banana and toast, no pate, or soft cheeses try to limit tuna to 2 portions a week, and try gentle exercise such as walking & swimming, to keep fit and reduce your risk of labour complications,
