Pregnancy Nutrition: How Many Calories Do You Need?

By

Contrary to popular belief, a pregnant woman needs only 500 calories more than her usual requirement – this translates to roughly 5 apples, a juicy 8 oz steak, or 6 eggs per day.

For pregnant women with a normal weight, this means consuming 1,800 calories per day in the first trimester, 2,200 calories per day in the second trimester, and up to 2,400 calories per day in the third trimester.
