You should gain about 5 pounds during the first trimester. Eat about 5 servings of milk or dairy per day – and if you don’t like milk products, try kale or edamame. Bold, brightly colored fruits have the most nutrients for you and your baby. Your pregnant body (nor any body) cannot store vitamin C, so get a fresh source everyday with strawberries, melon and orange juice. Eat whole grains; increase iron-heavy foods. Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. Avoid alcohol (even moderate drinking can induce complications); minimize caffeine to 300 milligrams or 3 cups per day; don’t eat raw or undercooked food while pregnant.
