protein powder durring pregnancy - 8 weeks



Recommended Posts

Hello, I am currently 8 weeks pregnant and trying to keep up with my Protein intake. I had my sleeve in 2017. I normally have a Protein Shake in the morning (pre pregnancy) but I've read that they may not be safe. Has anyone continued to use protein powders while pregnant? What brand did you use?

pre pregnancy I discovered this brand and I loved it

Hey there. Congrats on your pregnancy! I am also 8 weeks pregnant. I was told by the midwife to start back drinking Protein Shakes. I had my surgery in 2016 and haven't had a Protein Shake since 2017. I have not heard that they are bad for you but she specifically recommended the Premier Protein drinks.

I'm almost 5 weeks pregnant. I've been using a couple of scoops of unflavored Protein Powder in my morning smoothies. I do a cup of baby spinach, a cup of frozen fruit, a cup and a half of almond milk, and a banana, then some Protein powder mixed in there. It's the only way I get healthy stuff in me for Breakfast since sold food is seriously unattractive until later in the day.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
