Hello Anonymous,

Your diet should include proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, mineral, and fats. Pregnant women need extra iron and folic acid.

A woman, who is a normal weight before pregnancy, needs only an average of 300 extra calories per day to fuel her baby's growth and keep her healthy during pregnancy. Since you have a history of anorexia, it is important that you discuss your caloric intake with your obstetrician. The guidance of a nutritionist can be very beneficial.
