I finally get to get into this thread! We are expecting our third sometime near the end of July (we think). This is my first TF pregnancy! I had severe hypermesis with my two girls and so far i actually feel symptomless. Okay, except I already can't wear any pants I own.
I have been working really hard on healing my liver. i'm taking dandelion milk thistle extract and 1 tsp maca daily. We do raw milk, HVCLO, coconut oil, some raw honey, villii, kefir, bone broths, soaked grains and the occasional Kombucha (trying to re-grow my mother). I am eating too much store bought sprouted bread (Costco) but haven't gotten to making my own ww sourdough yet.
With both pregnancies before i lost 35 and 25 Lbs by the time I was full term. since then my body has stored a lot of extra weight. I'm now 30 lbs over what i would prefer to be. I think that my body is just trying to compensate for not eating for months on end and being depleted with babes. also trying to avoid the dental issues both girls have had (that haven't recurred on continued since doing reparative work done and going TF)
I have been nursing for 5 yrs straight.
I thought that going TF would really take the extra weight off but that hasn't really happened except 10 lbs when I went low/no carb.
I am pretty sure i have/had adrenal fatigue, liver,candida issues. I don't really do sweets any more and don't crave pasta.
Wondering if any of you have any info on doses for maca? Currently doing 1 heaping tsp/ day in raw milk.
Is ioderol safe while preg? i was thinking about trying it. (when we went to the beach this summer the smell of the seaweed made me want to eat it - and i wasn't pregnant craving!)
and what's with being freezing cold this time around. I can't seem to go without at least a sweater and slippers. last two times my feet actually felt warm for the first time ever
that's my short story. I wanted to say HI!
oh, anaarcturus, I just discovered your blog. love it!
