I was wondering how much more I really should be eating on a daily basis during pregnancy.

I've also heard that eating for 2 is not true. You should eat healthy and only have, like you said, about 300 extra calories.

I pretty much just eat when I'm hungry!
In the beginning of the pregnancy I could eat 3 bowls of Ramen in one sitting, now I'm down to 1, but then hungry again an in a couple of hours and I'll have a snack then.

I have a really hard time counting calories when I'm NOT pregnant, so I don't generally do it while I am.
