Protein Powder In Pregnancy!

Pregnant women need additional proteins in pregnancy, mainly in third trimester.
The requirement of protein is about 70-90 g in pregnancy, depending on the weight.

In the first two trimesters, you need protein (grams) =1.2*body weight
In last trimester you need protein (grams) =1.5*body weight

Now I would advise taking most of these proteins via diet. So my first advise would be-

1) visit a nutritionist and get a diet chart made-
However, sometimes it's not possible to eat lean chicken every day or even a boiled egg. And if you are vegetarian, in all possibility your diet will be deficient in proteins, hence you will need supplements.

Coming to protein supplements- there are a variety of supplements in the market, however, not all of them are good for you in the following ways-
A) they may also have vitamins- now you are already getting vitamins through your prenatal vitamin, and this additional vitamin from protein supplement can cause toxicity of some vitamins.

B) whey-based proteins will not be good for women with lactose intolerance as whey is derived from milk.

C) artificial sweeteners/flavouring agents-can be toxic to the fetus

D) the protein powder meant for bodybuilders won't be good for pregnant women as they may contain ingredients/hormones not suited for the fetus

Hence to choose the best protein powder to take the following things into mind-

An ideal protein powder:
1) should have pure protein and minimal additional constituents. As a rule of thumb- if you can't pronounce it, don't eat it!

2) flavourless

3) lactose intolerant or dairy sensitive women should go for pure pea protein powder instead of whey protein

Have a healthy baby. Enjoy your pregnancy.

Any prescription about pregnancy without complete case history isn't great, generally a balanced diet with extra calories as per term (guided by icmr) considerations on iron, calcium folates are important. Pre-natal exercises should be done with guidance, do not try on yourself. You can contact for personalized diet plan, which I can prepare after taking your case history. mobile.

Do as much as you are able to do comfortably. Otherwise do not do. Follow this 1. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U should eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. (preferably within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of plain water first thing in the morning 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit (eat whole fruit not juice), a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Take simple food like rice n dal in dinner. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water.10. Everyday preferably sleep on same time exercise in the form of yoga, cycling, swimming, gym etc. For more details, you can consult me.

You did urine pregnancy test early. As it should be done 10 days after missing your period. For example if your date was 10th, then do the test on 20th. Before that it can give false negative or false positive test.

Sir I want to know that which months is running and any home remedy for throat pain as we can't visit gyne doctors due to lighten. Is it common during pregnancy. This is her second issue.

"which month" she is running can be said only after reviewing the ultrasound reports. For throat pain, she can take tablets and gargle. But if it is not improving, please consult doctor, do not ignore it.

I am pregnant and using an artificial sweetener that contains chromium picolinate, is this safe during pregnancy.

Dear lybrate-user, chromium picolinate effects are not well studied in humans during pregnancy. It has shown to cause bone defects in some studies so you should avoid using it. There are other safe alternatives.

You must make sure that it is not leaking membranes. It is better to go to hospital and investigate as you feel there is blood in urine also. If amniotic fluid is blood stained, it is an obstetric emergency.

Don't worry much sometime there may be more movement sometime less but if you don't feel any movement in successive days then it's a matter of worry, you should visit your doctor as soon as possible.
