Eggs - severe craving! Advice


Hi girls,

I shall be 7 wks tomorrow, and I've had severe cravings for eggs - mainly poached, and I've 'accidentally' eaten 7 in the past 2 days!!!

My last pregnancy, I didn't really have many strong cravings, so didn't really pick up on this.

Now I know eating too many eggs normally is bad for you - but how many is bad?

I will have to use all my willpower to not have any more now til next week.

Altho I have found it humorous - what a weird thing to crave, defo will have to write it in my baby book (which reminds me I need to get a new one for this pregnancy!)

I may be wrong but I thought it was fine to eat eggs as long as the yolk is throughly cooked and not runny!

Dunno if this helps

My friend is a personal trainer and she's told me you can eat three eggs a day. Just make sure they are hardboiled, if they're runny it heightens the chance of listeria xo

As long as the egg is well cooked, you're fine to eat it during pregnancy.

I'm a competitive athlete (when I'm not pregnant! ha ha) and my nutritionist has had me on sometimes 12 eggs a day. The only part of the egg that gets restricted is the yolk. So I would only have 2-3 yolks per day. They're a good source of protein, and if you don't have too many yolks, are low in fat. So I'd go for it if it's what your body is craving

Oh my god...for a minute there I freaked! We're not supposed to eat eggs?! Eggs on toast with Marmite are the only things I have been able to actually stomach for the last 7 weeks! So I basically ate that every day...thinking since i'm pretty deficient in everything anyway, and now I have MS...the iron, protein and B vits would be doing baby alot of good! There I was feeling so proud for eating something "healthy" and keeping it down...

This is a choice that only you can make, but I have been eating soft boiled eggs all through my pregnancy, and I haven't had any problems. I was eating eggs benedict every day for breakfast at 7 weeks. My MWs and my MIL ( a retired MW) have all said as long as you don't go overboard, then it won't hurt. I've been told I can have whatever I'm craving, with the exception of pate, which apparently should be avoided.

But then all my cravings have been the dodgy foods; like eggs, pate and beer
