You probably know this already but you need to eat plenty good food when you are pregnant. Instead of using a diet plate why dont you start by putting all the veg on the plate first in large portions (you can never have too much) then when there is not a lot of space left add the starchy food and meats so that you can't overdo it. If you don't normally eat a lot of veg with meals then use a side plate for your food and try to have a couple of pieces of fruit after to fill you up.

Thanks Jenice I know that and eat lots of fruit and veg I just wanted to know about portion sizes really it's so easy to pile a plate high lol . I'm a sucker for gadgets things too.
