Vegans TTC ~ Spring/Summer

post #1 of 875
Thread Starter 
I'm starting this thread so I can continue to stalk -er, participate. I want to see those BFPs, ladies :

Well, I don't know about everywhere else but here in Northern CA the weather is beautiful. Sunny, cool, and everything is in bloom. I love Spring, it's my favorite season. And can I just say? I am SO READY for warm weather (watch me eat my words come August).

My friend who lives in SLC told me the same thing. She's from Texas and hates the weather in Utah. Winter there lasts until May.

It's usually pretty nice this time of year. Last week it was in the 60's and 70's.. of course we were out of town spending time in the rain of the Pac NW.. so we missed all the nice weather.

I would totally prefer TX weather...

(eta: just not the TX rednecks and ranchers)

Hey, I'm here too!

Lindsay is right--let's see some BFPs! Incidentally, I saw a store called BFP next to the children's consignment store today--wonder what they do/sell there . . . .

I think maybe my first PP AF is making her appearance. Please oh please no! I so don't feel ready for it!

Lizzy, I didn't see the snow today, but brrrr, it was cold today after such a warm weekend.

thanks talula!

great to see so many pregnant vegans still on here so we can profit from your wisdom and experience. :

talula, I think I remember you knowing a lot about herbs. what all did you take before the bfp?

lizzy, it's mostly rainy here but way too cold for the season. I need it to be warmer now, too. I want to buy and wear cute t-shirts, not the shirt/sweater/training jacket/coat version I'm wearing now

cupcake, wow, that feels so fast.

It's just above freezing here, but the sun is out!

Still in winter coat and boots here! Well below freezing this morning although it is suppose to warm up over the course of the day and be fairly warm tomorrow and Thursday.

We go from winter to summer in about 4 weeks flat here.

Still winter here too, although not below freezing. We have had a few teaser warm days so far. I keep joking with people that we haven't had our last snow storm yet, lol.

Hey lovelies!

Subbing... starting to see some signs of spring time in the Rockies here, in amongst the threats of blizzard... SO SOON though! I'm so excited!

hoping some of my pregnancy "disease" will catch you!

seems like talula is the only one who gets to actually soak in spring sun it has just started snowing outside

what other types of greens are there besides spinach? I keep reading about fancy stuff like dandelion greens but I've never seen anything like that in the stores.
post #13 of 875
oceane, kale is a very nutrious green, can you get that there? I've never seen dandelion leaves in the stores perse but they are in the "spring mix" salad greens that come bagged or in some other container.

It is fairly warm here today, I wore my spring coat this morning for the second time this year. However, we often do have one last snowfall in April.
post #14 of 875
VM said Kale, what about Chard, Mustard, Collard, Beet greens? The big leaves of the collard and mustard make great wrappers.


oh, woke up to a few inches of snow. They are still saying blizzard here tonight/tomorrow... eeeeee:

If it makes you feel any better, I've never had a White Christmas. I've never even seen snow fall from the sky, although I have been to Lake Tahoe once in the winter, and Illinois, but it didn't snow when I was there, either time (I am disappointed to note). Also, I am willing to bet when we come to late summer and I'm like a million months pregnant telling you how it's 105 here, you'll be sittin' pretty in the mid 80s.

It's going to be 72 today!

You may have a hard time finding greens like that where you are. Although a health food store might have a better selection, do you have one near you? Another option might be a produce delivery service.

Hey vegans! OK, if I didn't know better I would say that I was about to ovulate. wft? I don't know if its the maca, or just my turn to have an early o. But, I guess I shouldn't complain. We'll see I guess.
