Nutrition in pregnancy is key, and we have different requirements at different stages. During the second trimester our energy and protein requirements increase. This is to support ourselves as well as support the growth of our healthy unborn baby. In the second trimester we need to increase our daily energy (calorie/kilojoule) intake by 1400kj (335 cals) and 14 grams of protein. This looks like an extra 100 grams of cod or 60 grams of almonds or 2 glasses of milk.
