You’re eating for two now, so it’s doubly important to make sure you get the right amount of these nutrients during your pregnancy.

Frequently asked questions

How much weight should I be gaining during my pregnancy?

Good question! Everyone’s weight gain is individual and determined by your pre-pregnancy weight. It’s super important to check with your doc to see what is right for you. On average, weight gain when you’re starting out at a healthy weight is about 25-35 pounds.

I want to breastfeed my baby. Where can I learn more about it?

That’s great!! Breastfeeding is best for your baby. You can check out the info in our Breastfeeding topic or text Dotti to make an appointment with our certified lactation consultant.

I’m hungry throughout the day – what are healthy snacks that I can eat while home and on the go?

We bet you are! Here are some healthy snack ideas: trail mix, hummus with pita chips, yogurt with berries and granola, string cheese with fruit, apples with peanut butter. Just remember when on-the-go to pack those perishables with a freezer pack so cold foods are kept cold. Need more ideas? Text Dotti to make an appointment with one of our Registered Dietitians.
