Interesting about the OV role. We haven't had that dynamic here. Thanks for the info.

None of it is easy but I would do this pregnancy twenty times over instead of...

Depression in pregnancy seems to be more and more recognized. I had it eight years ago and it was as if no one had considered it before. Treatment is going to be similar to PPD there are just some antidepressants they will prescribe postpartum that they may be more conservative with in pregnancy. I got through my second pregnancy without an issue with a whole combination of strategies -- taking care of myself generally speaking was the core of all of it.

I've lost contact with toraji. If anyone knows where she is, could you hook us up? I haven't seen her here in quite a while.
Paula -- That's exactly what I was sitting here thinking about. Great possibilities. I love it!
I really recommend using a sourdough recipe for something like banana bread. I have had good luck with 100% whole grain breads this way. I have a phytic acid e-course on my site (which is under construction) and now a more extensive digital paper which walks you through the issues with the different grains and legumes. Here's a link to the paper but it takes you to the e-course too: phytic acid.
I posted my top five "meals of desperation" when I was about 3 months postpartum: postpartum meals.
Honestly, in this economy (and really any time), I wouldn't throw any of this away. I agree on the yogurt and kefir. On the yogurt, if you have some money for cream (I don't know if you can buy regular cream with food stamps), you could add it to skim milk before culturing it for yogurt. Cream top yogurt is really exceptional.
