Avatar f tn I'm 6 weeks pregnant and I've been vegetarian for the last 17years. Any more vegetarian pregnancies out there?
Avatar n tn If you are a vegetarian for animal-cruelty reasons, add eggs and cheese to your diet. I was a vegetarian for a long time but I ate fish and poultry when I was pregnant.
Avatar f tn Im a vegetarian but since being pregnant ive been really fussy! :| i believe thats why i got anemia during my pregnancy. I find it so hard to find stuff i like! Id never eat meat though!

Avatar f tn I have been a vegetarian for over a year now. I am 15 weeks pregnant and haven't gained any weight. The doctor isn't concerned now but I'm worried he will eventually say something. No I'm not going back to eating meat. The smell of it makes me sick. I was just wondering if anyone else was and what were they doing?
Avatar f tn So I had been a vegetarian for 8 years before becoming pregnant. About five months into it my doctor said my iron levels were too low because I didn't absorb the iron from the vitamin correctly. So to make sure my baby was safe she recommended I eat at least one type of animal protein. She recommended fish since I would also lack omega vitamins without it. So I started eating fish, in moderation of course to avoid mercury.
Avatar f tn I am a vegetarian and am pregnant with my 3rd healthy son:) You will be fine, just eat stuff with enough nutrients to replace whay you are not eating.
Avatar f tn I recently also became a vegetarian, and yesterday I went to a buffet with the fam and past by meat, and i remember feeling repulsed by it. In the time ive been vegetarian, i have never felt that way before by meat. Im latina so its hard to get away from the meat. Point is, symtoms: Headaches, diarrhea, and repulsed by certain foods. AM I PREGNANT?

Avatar f tn Today I started having a fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, body pains, huge headache and suffering with depression I am vegetarian so not sure if it could be food poisoning as I don't even eat fish. I have had unprotected sex on the 8 and 9th May as well as 29 and 30th May. I don't know why I am in such a state. I feel like I have been hit by a bus and now suffering. My fertility windows ended on the 29th May of which I had unprotected sex. My fiance always pulls out and I witness him doing so.
Avatar f tn Ok so lately my boobs have been really swollen and sore, sometimes so bad I can't wear a bra. I was a vegetarian for 2 and a half years and just recently started craving bacon. My stomach is hard and I've felt really bloated and tired. Everyone tells me I'm pregnant, but I've taken a few home pregnancy tests and they've all come up negative. . Could I still be pregnant?
Avatar f tn Another factor (which I think is probably the reason) is that I used to be a vegetarian for 10 years and I just started eating meat again last month. What do you think the chances of me being pregnant are? If not what do you think the cause is or could it just be from the diet change?
Avatar n tn The thing is, I haven't been intimite since before my last period. Is it possible that I got pregnant and then still had a period? I have heard that some women claim to have gotten what they thought to be a period while pregnant. I have experienced really late periods before a couple of times, but always due to extreme conditions (like working 2 jobs and only getting around 2 hours of sleep a night).
Avatar f tn I have extreme food aversions. And I know it sounds weird, but I feel pregnant. So has this happened to anybody? Should I just take a chill pill or what? If you bleed, it means you can't be pregnant, right? I totally took health class. But I still don't know. Help!
Avatar f tn Yes you could be pregnant, anytime tou have unprotected sex you are at risk of pregnancy. The pull out method really isn't a good form of birth control, you can still get pregnant from their pre ***.
Avatar f tn i am not on any other contraceptive as yet i got some prescribed but i want to be suure i am not pregnant before i start taking it. i have been reasearching constantly finding ways to tell and i have a few of the symptons although i am not sure if it is phycological. symptons i have noticed are...
1214758 tn?1320481686 Can I dye my hair in the first trimester? I'm 8 weeks pregnant and hate seeing the grey hairs come thru!
Avatar m tn She insists she's NOT pregnant and gets really upset when i bring it up because she says i don't trust her. I wonder why they would test her for anemia though. Is that standard or is that only something they would do at a first pregnancy appointment? it's iron deficient anemia by the way. Something doesn't feel right to me here...either she is saying this because we broke up or maybe she is actually pregnant? She still parties and i've seen her drink and smoke 1 cigarette so i don't know.
Avatar f tn There are extensive circulatory issues (PAD, aortal aneurysm, vericose veins, etc) in my family history, but I don't smoke, eat a healthy vegetarian diet, and exercise. I don't have health insurance, so I can't go get checked unless I believe it's something very serious. Does anyone know if this could be a warning sign of something serious?
Avatar f tn hi I am 18 weeks pregnant and this is my second child. So far it is been a nightmare... I am experiencing extreme fatigue, my heart pounding very fast!!!, shortness of breath, dizzyness, depressed feeling, basically bed-ridden. I don't work. so whenever I feel I have little energy left in my body, I just cook, clean and take care of my 6 year old daughter.. I can't go out at all... I just lay on the couch and only get up when I need something.. I am feeling very miserable.
1666434 tn?1325265950 org/posts/Allergies---Food/36-and-just-had-my-first-reaction-to-shrimp/show/1542663 I have been trying to watch my protein intake and eat protein that is lean and good for me while I am pregnant. I usually follow a vegetarian diet with some eggs to help with protein, but during my pregnancy I have been eating meat to help my body. 3 nights ago I had my first reaction ever to cocktail shrimp, something we prepared at home, just plain shrimp and cocktail sauce (that I have had before).
Avatar n tn I want that so bad because until then I am going to be worried because my doc started me on Provera today and if I am pregnant, that could cause birth defects. I really believe that I need one because I think I am pregnant.
Avatar n tn I am totally perplexed that I would have any problem relating to my digestion. I have been a vegetarian for approx. 10 years and am nearly vegan (eating little/no dairy). I even pay attention to the way I combine my food so that it is easily digested. No one can offer me any explanation for why my gallbladder might be sluggish. I am seeing a gastroenterologist who suggested an h. pylori test which was positive. I'm now on a course of antibiotics to rid myself of that.
Avatar n tn Has anybody gotten pregnant or heard of anybody pregnant with this low of sperm motility. Any idea what normal sperm motility is?
Avatar f tn Japanese/Asian people eat plenty of sushi pregnant and not pregnant and their babies come out totally fine. There's such a small risk for Listeria in fish, it's really not worth getting so freaked out about it.
Avatar f tn I have no idea, not preg, but can relate to how much it sucks because I am very prone to getting cankersores (mostly on inner cheak and inner lip -- like a big hole opens up and gets white -- OUCH!). 20???!!!! WOW! Salt water should help and there is over the counter stuff too to buy but ask ob before using (that stuff is great because it numbs it -- but again I don't think I've ever had one on the tongue so the stuff might not taste that great).
Avatar f tn I'm a clean eater who has recently become a vegetarian. Really, I gave up chicken. I haven't been able to eat beef or pork in years. Anyway. This week has been an interesting one for me. I've been having the strangest tastes for foods that would usually gross me out. Particularly, unhealthy foods. I ate my first bag of hot chips in years this week and even ate spicy chicken nuggets and fries from wendys when I haven't beem able to look at a fast food place.
