Hi Well your the lucky one, well keep exercising as much as you can walk daily, very good for you, get in swimming if you can, don't for get sex, I know that how you got pregnant, but very good for you when your pregnant, drink lots of water.

Keep off fast foods and junk foods, to much salt and sugars, keep of cakes and biscuits, no milk chocolate  just eat a couple of pieces of dark chocolate daily, very good for you, no sodas.

Just eat healthy thing's, wholewheat pastas, baked potato's, keep off fried chips/fries, better still keep away from all fried foods, eat salads, drink milk, start taken vits for pregnant women.

Try and enjoy yourself, keep happy, don't get stressed.

I do hope some of this helps.

Good Luck
