I'd suggest you to seek orientation from a doc - but really, it's a matter of eating healthy, but you might need suplementation as well.

When I was pregnant with Connor I ate a lot of steak and spinach because my iron was really low. I also took a slow release iron supplement.

 

This pregnancy I HATE chicken, which was one of my favorite foods, so I'm kinda at a loss as to what to eat.

 

I've been eating a lot of salad, soups, (watch your salt though... that's a huge deal, your feet can swell towards the end, and that can lead to all kinds of problems...) I know your not really supposed to eat lunch meats, but I will eat turkey sandwiches on white bread with lots of leafy greens. Great for folic acid which is very important in brain development early on for the baby. Orange juice is great too... that's one thing I craved this pregnancy.

 

Try to eat healthy but I'm sure there will be a lot of un-healthy things you crave during pregnancy. You can eat those too, but definitely in moderation.

 

Oh, and watch your caffeine, because they are saying it could be linked to miscarraige. Drink lots of water. smile.gif

 

Best wishes!

I would say that you should go with what your body is craving because if you listen to your needs, you will be getting the nutrients that you need. I also have had anemia since I got pregnant (2 yrs later still get tired if I don't take my iron pills). Prenatal vitamins are good, too, if you are still concerned. I have known women who aren't pregnant take the prenatal vitamins for longer/stronger hair and nails.

Most of the things you're told to stay away from while pregnant are perfectly fine. A moderate amount of fish (as long as it's not the high mercury fish) is actually recommended. There's also this silly rule about cheese, but the thing is that they're talking about raw cheeses that haven't been pasteurized. In America, cheeses HAVE to be pasteurized, so one little look at the ingredients list will ease your fears.

 

The main thing I stayed away from when I was pregnant was deli meat (although I ate alot of this with my first pregnancy because I didn't know it was a "no-no" food) and too much coffee. Even with coffee though, they say no more than 3 cups a day. That's way more then what I drink when I'm NOT pregnant!

Before you indulge in the PB and J, ask your parents to see if there's a history of a peanut allergy in your family. Eating PB while pregnant with such a family history can lead to a peanut allergy in your child. And that doesn't mean some distant cousin, just ask if there's anyone in the immediate family that's allergic to peanuts, and if not, you're good to go!

Before I got pregnant with my son, I NEVER liked sweets. Then I got pregnant, and BAM! I had a sweet tooth like mad, and that's why I gained 80 pounds! Even to this day, the sweet tooth has stuck like glue.

 

With my daughter, I ate pretty well most of the time, although I did indulge in my cravings when they came. (And I only gained 24 with her.)
