Question weight loss sites ?

First off I'm pregnant and using this site for maintainence then weight loss.
dh and I have been using "Lose it" for a year now and have lost weight tracking our calories and/or carbs.
I recently found out "My fitness pal" now has a iPhone app as well. I'm trying them both out to see which one works for me.
What I've noticed is that "my fitness pal" gives me less calories then "Lose it" does on maint. My dh refused to switch because of the same reason. His goal is to lose 1 lb a week, he says if he switches he'd be losing 2 lbs or more a week. In my case the difference is only about 200-300 calories.
I like "My fitness pal" but I worry that I'll end up losing weight when I'm trying to maintain, even though I'm still gaining the recommended 1 lb a week go figure. LOL

Here's an example of what it looks like:
Lose it: 2100 maint. calories
MFP: 1860 maint. calories.
Highest: 184
weight lost since my journey began 2009 ( per 5 lbs):

I'd start with the 1860, go at it for a few weeks and see what your body does. If you're losing still, then up your calories 100-200 calories and see how that works. Keep going until you stop losing. Just because an app tells you something doesn't mean you have to follow it
