Breakfast for Preggos?

After 3 months of ttc I finally got my bfp yesterday (talk about and awesome Christmas gift from God!). I know there's some changes I need to make now, and I'm wondering if anyone has any healthy breakfast ideas for preggos? What did you eat?

    Sorry, I can't do a clicky, but this is a great article explains the extra caloric intact you need right now. Congrats, btw.

    I would also like to add plain Greek yogurt with fresh or frozen berriesz, scrambled eggs with cheese, spinach, bell peppers and other veggies, Malt O Meal, whole grained oatmeal, breakfast tacos on whole wheat tortillas with tons of veggies and sausage or bacon, and fruit like oranges, apples, pears, etc.

  • Keep in mind foods high in folic acid too....and not just for breakfast. Spinach, broccoli, asparagus, great northern beans, cantaloupe all are high in it. Add them wherever you can.

  • Truthful, I didn't change my eating habit when I was pregnant. I ate what I wanted. But I did stop drinking any alcohol. And tried not not take any pills. Unless a doctor recommended it

  • when I was pregnant with my daughter I really wasn't that hungry around breakfast so my husband would make me an egg white omelets with different things in it like a little spinach and tomatoes with cheese, flakes of broccoli with cheese or sausage with bell pepper so I would have proteins and folic acids. anything is really ok just stay away from alot of sugars or things that brake down into high levels of sugar to help lower your chances of Gestational Diabetes

  • In the beginning when its harder to eat anything in the morning... I ate whole wheat toast and or peach oatmeal lol.... Eggs are good for protein and just good all around. But I like toast, oatmeal, eggs personally.

  • I had really bad morning sickness throughout my pregnancies. I couldn't eat much particularly in the mornings so I drank carnation instant breakfast. Full of sugars and processed crap, but 2 different nutritionists (I ended up with gestational diabetes in 4 out of my 5 pregnancies) told me it was actually okay if that was all I felt I could keep down. Later in my pregnancies when I felt a little better, I ate scrambled eggs and 1/2 bagel a lot of days. Omelettes with some added veggies are great too!
