During pregnancy you crave a lot for variety of foods, some may be healthy but some will be indulging. When i was pregnant i craved for a bowl of curd rice with mango pickle, jamun fruits and bounty chocolate bars. I ate tons of them. But i tried to eat a balance healthy diet often. I included lots of fruits, veggies and nuts in my diet.

Now i am getting requests from my lovely viewers to share a sample diet chart for a pregnant women. Hence i thought of sharing the chart which my gynecologist gave me. I have few more chart ideas which will be shared soon.

"Pregnant women should try to get up early, so you don't make your baby starve. Also try to sleep early at night because it is the time when your babies growth happens. It is recommended to keep moving in the day time instead of sitting, this will keep the baby active"
