I have been a vegetarian for 40 years and gave birth to 3 healthy children...and raised them as vegetarians. You may need to eat more protein, such as tofu or beans during your pregnancy. I normally never eat eggs, but during my pregnancies, I some times had eggs. If this feels good for you, don't let others pressure you into something that doesn't feel right for you.There are many, many vegetarian pregnant women and nursing moms. Bless you and your birth, JJK
