Pregnancy isn’t a license to eat but it is a license to take great care of yourself. Enjoy a walk, a bubble bath, or a day with friends instead of those extra calories that over indulging in comfort food brings. Strive for a healthy weight gain and you’ll be strong and ready when your new baby arrives.
