Healthy Pregnancy Weight Gain

Pregnant at last or Whoa! Surprise! We are having a baby-you still need to decide how to eat during pregnancy. Unfortunately, taking pregnancy as a free pass to eat whatever/whenever doesn't do the baby any good and does you even worse.

Despite the rumors-breastfeeding doesn't magically cause all those pounds to drop in most people-especially if they gained too much weight during pregnancy. If you don't want to spend your baby's first year or 5 on a diet trying to lose the baby weight-keep a handle on it now (unless your doctor recommends something else-for instance if you go into pregnancy underweight)

The resource linked above has some good guidelines on eating for a healthy pregnancy AND tells you where all that weight is going!
