How much cake (6 months pregnant) is U to eat?
Dh (very dear at the min) has just bought be a huge 12 serving chocolate fudge cake...
So would IBU to eat as much as is humanly possible? Or should I have 1 slice and move away from the cake?

2 cakes?

Perhaps one very, very large slice. To start.

Have a large slice then move away. You don't wanna make yourself sick!

Two slices. Then chop the rest up into portions and freeze them quick

Cut one slice. Give that to your DH and them eat the rest.

Ooh 2 slices definitely fine and then maybe more later tonight! I'm pregnant too and that would be my approach...I have an easter egg to eat tonight just waiting for 2 yo to go to bed so she doesn't spot it! Am also contemplating pancakes later...

Wrong, wrong and wrong ...... You can never have too much cake ! Honestly, don't you know anything!!!!

Pinkheart5915 Sun 10-Apr-16 19:13:03

I'm pregnant with a love of cake too.
Eat as much as you like, you can never have too much cake

NorthernBird92 Sun 10-Apr-16 19:14:12

It's just so very soft and fudgey and beautiful!
Sadly my freezer is rather full and cake never tastes as nice the next day AND I HATE food wastage and all that so only one thing for it....
cake
My dh shall get a -slither- slice.
Do I warm it or eat it cold!!! I can't take all these decisions

Pinkheart5915 Sun 10-Apr-16 19:16:03

I'd have it warm now, just microwave for a few seconds. Then later have some cold got to try it both ways.

Gobby speaks sense, listen to her.

LadyDeadpool Sun 10-Apr-16 19:18:24

You cut the cake into 3 slices two 45% slices and one 10% slice DH gets the 10% and you have the others. You have then only had 2 slices of cake.

Sadly, sweet stuff makes me feel sick, so for this pregnant woman, any cake is too much sad

OneInEight Sun 10-Apr-16 19:23:02

Well obviously one for you and one for the baby. Unless you are lucky enough to be having twins and then you can have three,

NorthernBird92 Sun 10-Apr-16 19:25:18

The sticker on the front saying serves 12 is that some kind of joke?

BolshierAryaStark Sun 10-Apr-16 19:28:57

Too much cake? Nope, not such a thing.

NorthernBird92 Sun 10-Apr-16 19:29:54

Thankyou all for your support and advice

As long as your don't have gestational diabetes and have never had any glucose in your pee at midwife check then go for it!

If you have either of the above don't eat any - any excess sugar crosses the placenta and goes to baby and fattens it up and damages the placenta in doing so confused

HeffalumpHistory Sun 10-Apr-16 19:31:57

Tbh, I'd scoff the whole thing & prob ask him to get more wink
Enjoy! cake

Nocabbageinmyeye Sun 10-Apr-16 19:33:06

You warm it and serve it with ice cream, delicious!!

ForeverBubblegum Sun 10-Apr-16 19:35:52

I’m sure the box must have a misprint and should actually read serves 1-2

NorthernBird92 Sun 10-Apr-16 19:36:56

Yes forever I think that's more likely xx

Where roughly in the country do you live? Helpful Mumsnetters could rush to your aid armed with forks and eat some to save you from yourself....

Each one of the 12 slices will be about 300 calories. So eating half the cake would be 1800. It's best to know.
