Are you pregnant and feeling hungry, dizzy, confused, breathless? Do you sweat profusely and look pale? Some or all these symptoms could indicate that your energy level is low because your calorie intake is not enough for you and the baby inside you. Medindia’s Pregnancy Calorie Intake Calculator is a unique tool that helps to determine the recommended calorie level for pregnant women, indicating how much calories you require during pregnancy in each trimester.
Calorie rich foods supply the energy required to keep you feeling healthy during your pregnancy and also help establish essential building blocks of weight, growth and overall health for your baby in the womb.

Gaining a healthy amount of weight may help you have a more comfortable pregnancy and easy childbirth. A healthy, nutrient-rich diet during pregnancy ensures the health of both mother and child with fewer pregnancy complications such as backaches, constipation, high blood pressure and diabetes.
