I took soy protein shakes with DD#2. I don't think whey's a problem, but let us know what your mw says. A protein shake sounds really good. lol

Re: whey protein shakes ok while pg?

I hate the whey protein shakes, but I can tolerate the soy ones and I could really use them to get that extra bit of protein right now. So, the soy ones are okay too? I can ask my MW when I'm there on Monday, but if anyone knows for sure, then that would be great!

I don't see why not - whey is just a milk protein. As long as there isn't any extra garbage in it, I don't see any issues - e.g. it's like asking if you can drink milk.

I think it's OK as long as there's not a whole lot of artificial sweeteners in it (I know some of them are flavored and have aspartame, definitely a no-no, IMO). I've been drinking a lot of soy milk and will make the occasional protein shake, too.

LOL, that is kind of how I felt and didn't know if it was worth a call to my mw. I haven't called yet. I keep getting busy and forgetting about it. I was wondering because I remember reading somewhere not to but I would think it would be because there is extra junk in some of the mixes but I buy just plain whey no garbage and then maybe it was frowned upon because people may be using it (or other shake type drinks) as meal replacements and not getting proper nutrition while pg.

I don't see any problem as long as your digestive system can handle it. For some strange reason I couldn't handle milk products when pg and the whey made my stomach hurt soooo bad!
