Protein Powder?

If I wanted to make a shake with protein powder in it, is that bad? I am 25 weeks Thanks!

Re: Protein Powder?

  • There was a post on this a week or so back.  

    I still consume Whole Foods Whey protein powder that contains Stevia, but I limit myself to between half and one scoop per day.  My doctor does not have a problem with it.  In fact, due to food aversions, it's been a major source of protein for me on many days.  If you're worried, give your doctor a call.

  • I think it depends what brand and what the ingredients are.  I used to drink one (I cannot remember the name), but it had all kinds of enzymes or something in it, so it was not recommended for pregnant women.  I am pretty sure it even said that on the jar, so I would check yours or look it up online.

    FWIW...most protein powders...and a lot of products in general will say they aren't recommended for pregnant or lactating women.  A lot of times it's a general disclaimer to avoid any potential liability.  I would just check with your doctor if you're worried.

  • As long as you stick to something that is 100% whey like a GNC Pro Performance that doesn't contain anything other than the whey protein such as what are deemed as "banned substances", you should be fine..

  • I know this response is a little late but I just bought vegan one protien power bc it's all natural and the protien comes from veggies. It has stevia but that is a plant based sweetener. It tastes good and I don't worry that there is additives, soy or anything else that potentially could harm the baby.
