Don’t eat for two — eat until you are no longer hungry rather than until you are full.

Avoid risky foods like hot dogs, which can contain listeria. Certain fish contain high mercury levels. These can be harmful to your baby. And, be sure to wash all fruits and vegetables well before eating. Buy organic when possible.

Drink at 8-12 glasses of water daily to help prevent dehydration.

Eat high-fiber foods to help you feel full, so you may be less likely to overeat.
