Both my midwife and OB want me to increase my protein to 80-100g a day, which I know is common but I am having a hard time doing it! The one thing that is really helping me is having at least one protein shake a day as a snack.

Have you been told to increase your protein? If so how are you doing it?

I haven't heard anything about this either. I never did with my other pregnancies either. I wonder why they are telling you to?

I have been told to increase iron intake but not protein. I have noticed that I consume less protein during pregnancy though. My meat aversion from earlier is pretty much gone now but the only foods that sound good are pasta, vegetables, fruit, and other lighter foods. I rarely eat meat but I do get protein from other sources.

I am a meat eater, but during pregnancy I don't really like meat. My doctor recommended eating more protein as well. It is hard. I have to force myself.

Eggs?

I have them a few morning a week. I feel much better when I eat more protein and less carbs.

When I transitioned from 1st trimester to 2nd my OB also recommended eating more protein and less carbs. I try to be more conscience about it, but no one gave me exact amounts to go up.

After being told to increase my protein intake, I started making omelettes loaded with veggies, quiche, then adding in greek yogurt once or twice a day.

I'm not a big meat eater, so I'd probably go for the dairy, quinoa, eggs.

So is it just Greek yogurt, or all yogurts that are good for protiens?

My sugar and BP are fine. My midwife recommends those numbers to all her mom's and I think my OB mentioned it because of the swelling in my feet. He said although my feet are my only sign of possible toxemia increasing my protein to those numbers would help to lower my chances of developing pre-e later on.
