    Heard it on Grey's Anatomy and was wondering if it is true. They say we burn 3000 calories a day. Is there some truth in it? Have you heard similar things? :shrug:

    I don't know but I've put on less weight this time with my little girl and have eaten a ton more chocolate so not who knows. :shrug: I know we need an extra 300 cals when pregnant and that's it, basically an extra large glass of fruit juice :dohh: (I go wayyyy over that one)

    If it was true, I will be loosing weight instead of gaining, I am counting what I eat and I don't reach the 3000 Mark...

    Hmm, interesting. I'm due in 3 weeks girls and I lost 10lbs during this pregnancy... no weight gain at all and I'm having a boy. I don't know if this is universally true but it seems to be true about me!
