Wow. That seems to have grown quite a bit. Have you gained any weight? What does your doctor say about that?

Cheetos = not good for you. There isn't anything of any value in cheetos for the amount of calories you are getting.

You only need 300 extra calories a day during pregnancy, less if you are sedentary, more if you are very active. That would be less than 2 serving sizes of Cheetos (serving size = 1 oz = 160 calories).
