I do have a small gym in my house, no cardio machines or anything but some DVD's and a weight machine.
I feel like I'm making excuses but I'm just so tired and so, so hungry :(

You are just entering your second trimester, which is when food aversions and pregnancy illness lessen greatly for most pregnant women.
Hopefully, you will be able to return to your more healthy eating plan as before. Since you were eating 1400 calories for weight loss--I would suggest sticking with around 1600-1800 calories daily now (not 2000)---see if this brings your weekly weight gain to about 1/2 pound gained weekly. This is where you will want your weight gain to be for the rest of your pregnancy. As always, talk about this weight gain plan with your doctor.
Even though it is hot outside, are you able to exercise inside--do you have air conditioning?? YOu can use some of the BF exercise videos or check out pregnancy DVDs from your library or store.

I just need to rant a bit... I'm 14 weeks, super hungry all the time, and having wicked food aversion to veggies (all of them!), eggs, beans and most meat and poultry, which was basically all I ate and enjoyed before I got pregnant.
I've been eating fruit and (non complex)carbs since I was about 6 weeks which is when everything kicked in, the aversions and morning sickness.
The last time I weighed myself before I knew I was pregnant I weight 162 lbs. I then went on holiday for a few weeks and well...ate and drank like I was on holiday. When I came back I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant and 170 lbs.
Currently at 14 weeks I'm 178 lbs, and despretely trying to hold on to this weight, which is really hard because I feel like I'm STARVING all the time.
Literally 45 minutes to an hour after I eat it feels like my stomech is eating itself.
I really don't want this to get out of control. I'm really trying to not eat so much, I'm using my food tracker at Sparkpeople and averaging about 2000 calories/day give or take a bit.
Before I got pregnant I was eating about 1400 and trying to lose weight. I'm 5'4. I'm also not exercising like I was because I'm tired all time.
Also I live in the middle east and so my usual walk/jog is off the menu because it's currently 115 degrees F outside (45 degrees C).
I just feel like this is impossible and I'm out of control...
