Let's try this again, I had trouble before...<br><br>
I should have trialed egg yolks before getting pregnant <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
DS ended up being allergic to eggs so I stopped eating them while he was nursing. At some point I made an angel food cake (tons of egg whites) and broke out in hives. I have no idea if I am allergic to the yolk. It would be nice if I wasn't because I cannot tolerate any fish products so I cannot take DHA and egg yolks would be a good source.<br><br>
Is it a safe thing to do at 12 weeks pregnant?

If you broke out in hives from eating <i>cooked</i> eggs, I definitely would not try it. Sounds like an IgE reaction to me. Have you had allergy testing? Maybe try that first, and if it comes back clean you might consider it.<br><br>
You might try some other options for EFA's like flax, EPO, or grassfed beef. That's what I'm doing right now, because I can't have fish or eggs either. (I am planning to trial some HVCLO soon after a few people telling me that it's possible for some people with fish allergies to tolerate it. Depends on your level of fish allergy though I'm sure.)

i started eating spelt in this pregnancy after avoiding gluten for over a year b/c of my nursling, i had never had any reactionsto gluten b4. and i had horrible braxton hicks and was in bed for a day with stomach pain (not digestive feeling) and BH unable to eat, only drink. so allergies may be different for you in pregnancy too.
