Hi Andrea! That's too cool that you started 8/11. I'll look forward to keeping up with you. When will you officially start trying to conceive?
BTW, it took us 4 months to get pregnant the first time, then happened the first month this time. 4 months is totally within the range of normal, and sometimes it takes far longer than that, even with no fertility issues. I read "Real Food for Mother and Baby" by Nina Planck, prior to finding MDA or knowing anything about the Primal Blueprint, and she talks at length about the best foods for fertility, including... liver. So many of the food concepts she discusses match perfectly to the advice on this website, and best of all it's geared toward moms! I picked it up when I was starting my daughter on solid foods, and wished I had read it prior to getting pregnant.
HannahC and Spinner, congrats on your pregnancies! I also had way less energy in the first trimester, especially during the first two months. Our bodies have to work really hard to get that placenta up and running.
HannahC, wow, I'm impressed that you're able to exercise as much as you are. It speaks highly of PB that you went into pregnancy having done it for a year and you're starting off in such good shape.
I'm walking (with my daughter in the stroller) pretty much daily, doing occasional Prenatal Yoga, cycling or swimming, and have started the bodyweight exercises, which I love. I did try one brief sprint on my bike, and haven't decided whether or not to incorporate sprints yet. I think I have the energy for it, I just don't want to do anything dangerous to baby, obviously.
Spinner, I LOVE Ezekiel bread. Hated giving it up, but I did, so far anyway.
Maybe I'll try to start a group for us Pregnant Primals...
Blessing to you and your families!
