Clean eating would be very good for both you and baby. Just make sure you're meeting your caloric requirements for pregnancy.
Congrats to you!!!!

I've been a member of Spark, and this team, for quite a while, but a huge move, a pregnancy of twins, and now another pregnancy 9 months later... I've fallen WAY off the clean eating wagon.
That said, I'm also very, very overweight. The twin pregnancy, obviously, had me gain a lot of weight by necessity. On top of that, I had to go on steroids to deal with a health issue that popped up, and that didn't help my eating habits or working out habits. AND, now that I finally was physically able and emotionally able to get back to it... I'm pregnant again. Which we're so excited and happy with, but, well, I'm not nearly as healthy as I want to be.
So my question is, has anyone followed the Eat Clean lifestyle (I really hesitate to call it a diet, but I'm sure y'all know what I mean) while pregnant? Did you adjust at all, portions or sizes or frequencies? I'm on Babyfit (Spark's sister site, for pregnancy and motherhood stuff), but there's not a Clean Eating team that I could find, so I could really use any advice!! Thank you!
