Calories in third trimester?

The last two days I've started monitoring my food intake as felt I was not eating enough

I'm using mfp to do this

Now I have had a bug kind of thing in last 24 hours

Should I be aiming for 2200 per day? Pre pregnancy I am petite, short and slim.

I think it's 200 extra, so whatever would be normal for you (maybe the app can help with that based on your height, weight, activity level, etc) plus 200, I'd think.

Try not to worry about the actual amount. It's the equivalent to half a sandwich. As long as you aren't hungry or stuffing yourself it's fine. I put on 2 stone with my dd in pregnancy and just ate for my baby. At the end I was eating 5 small meals a day because I had awful acid reflux.

Agree with pp it's just a couple hundred more than you usually have. 2200 would be a massive amount for me (5"4).
