Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

You could just eat something that you like, such as ice cream or pizza :)Breakfast doesn't have to be the traditional breakfast food. Just eat something that you like, and makes you feel better. I think its just best to avoid the foods they tell you to, like fish, than to worry about everything you are eating. 
you need to try and eat healthy while you are pregnant. whole grains, fruits, veggies, and lean protein are all excellent choices. breakfast doesn't have to be traditional breakfast food. it's just whatever you want it to be. maybe yogurt with fruit and granola, or whole grain toast smeared with cream cheese and apple butter. have fun with it.
First off, in generally you should be eating lots of fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, lean meats, low fat dairy and should be drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day, but more is better when you're pregnant. I normally get 12-15 eight ounce glasses a day.Second, breakfast doesn't have to be eggs and bacon, oatmeal, or any of the traditional breakfast foods. As long as it's healthy, eat what you want. If you wake up and want spaghetti and meatballs, go for it! Just make sure to avoid processed foods, they contain high levels of sodium and/or sugar and are full of unnecessary preservatives and chemical ingredients.If you have a blender making a smoothie is a fast option. I use soy milk, a scoop of protein powder or some Greek yogurt, a fresh banana and some frozen berries. Sometimes I'll add a few vegetables, like carrots, celery, cucumber, avocado, tomato, or spinach. The sugar from the fruits hides the veggie flavors and you get a serving of veggies that you wouldn't otherwise get in the morning, which  means more vitamins and minerals!
you need to avoid soda, it will lower your iron, and you/baby don't need all that caffeine and sugar. 2 cups of coffee a day is fine, but no more than that
