Meal Supplement Shakes As Snacks

Hi guys, I'm 29 weeks and about 4 days ago I started taking meal supplement shakes just as a snack once a day. The reason I take it is that I don't take any vitamins since everytime i do swallow a pill I gag and throw up, and these shakes have all the vitamins needed, also has folic acid and fiber. I see my doctor next week but I was wondering are there any side effects to this? I read the labels and there is no warnings for pregnant women. It's not slimfast its another shake by USANA. Any input would be welcome. Thank you.

I can't answer your question, but I do think that it should be safe, I have started doing the same with the slim fast shake because I sometimes have a hard time eating meet bcause of nausea and I have been low on protein, I've also heard of other pregnant women doing this with the slimfast, so I think that it should be safe with the other kind too, if there is no warning and nothing in the ingredients looks harmful, I'd say you are ok

I'll drink a slimfast every now and again...don't see why they'd be bad for you! I even drink Carnation Instant Breakfast...which my Dr recommended for it's vitamins and what not! I say enjoy!

Why don't you drink the healthy mom shakes, they are specially made for pregnant women. They are really good as a snack. They have a ton of vitamins and they are really good. They can be found near the pediasure in the baby food aisle at the grocery store.
