    During pregnancy, a woman's mood and energy level may influence what she chooses to eat. That could affect her weight, as well as the nutrients she (and her baby) gets.

    In a study of 134 healthy women with normal pregnancies, mothers-to-be who were more stressed, anxious, and fatigued tended to eat more than their calmer, better-rested peers.

    None of the women were mentally ill. They were just surfing the ups and downs of daily life, like most people. "This was just basically healthy women with healthy pregnancies who have some stress and anxiety, like all women do," researcher Laura Caulfield, PhD, tells WebMD.
