I am 6 months pregnant and have only discovered Weston Price in the last couple of months. So its been an adventure. But my cravings are low. sugar intake fairly low. due to the fact I know to eat more fat now. how about that

Yes, start a thread! I was pregnant last year too so it will be even more important for me to eat a nutrient dense diet this time around. Right now I'm struggling with finding food that sounds good to eat because I'm so nauseous.

I just had my 12 week scan a few hours ago - wow there really is a baby in there! A very active and uncooperative baby at that!

Now I know it's for real, I'll have to really try for the nutrient dense foods. Trouble is, I can think what they are. Can we make a list? Then we can all refer to them when we get the munchies - it might help to resist the chocolate.

So I know nuts are supposed to be good (but I'm allergic), raw dairy, liver, broccoli (?), oily fish, butter, wholegrain bread (?)....... any other ideas?

I'm here - even though my diet lately has been less TF than ideal... a little too much white flour lately.

i used to hang out here, but im just now (21 weeks...) starting to be able to cook again. i havent been able to eat much the last couple of months, and i am still queezy most of the time. BUT, i did make a couple of gallons of chicken/lamb stock the other day for the first time in months.

hi everyone! i'm here too - glad there's a new thread. i'm now 26 weeks and pretty much mostly TF. since becoming pregnant i stopped being grainfree as i felt i needed the carbs, but i'm with cristeen i'm now having a little too much white flour as i'm buying my sourdough that is made with organic unbleached white flour as the rye sourdough isn't doing it for me!! even though i only have a couple of slices per day i am struggling to stop buying it now!

I know what you mean. I was into the bagels and cream cheese for awhile there. : Luckily my hubby has trying to go gluten free so we don't do many/if any gluten products at home at least.
I've had some leg cramps lately I think this weekend calls for a good epsom salt soak.

Ugh.

I was getting those daily early on in the pregnancy. I added a smoothie with a banana to my daily regimen and they went away after about a week.
post #15 of 329
thanks for the idea on the smoothies I'll have to try it.

is anyone drinknig raw gotats milk or cow? I get raw cow milk every 2 weeks. I wish I could get it every week, but I can not afford the expense. I do have a supply of raw goats milk and was thinking of supplementing the other week with goats milk.

Oh, I loved raw goat milk... in my opinion it tastes way better (creamier) than cow milk. *sigh* I'm allergic to it, too... but I remember really loving it.

I get raw cow (it's available at WF here). I wish I had a source for raw goat, but I'm lucky if I can find goat that isn't UP.
post #18 of 329
DH and I go through, get this, 2 gallons of raw milk and 3 quarts of raw cream per week
Since I am a co-op head, our milk is technicaly free after I get my payment share.

Yesterday, the milk tasted wonderful. Today, out of the same jar, its wonderful. But, everytime I burp, I taste cow

Add to that, I have decided I need to switch to clo capsules, cause burping it is horrible. I don't even want to think about puking it up
post #19 of 329
About burping the CLO, I burp it up if I take it early in the day now that I am pregnant, but if I take it around dinner, I am fine. Strange. (I take blue ice brand)

I do not think that it is strange to go through 2 gallons of milk. Dh works on an organic dairy farm an we go through more than that a week. It is free too. I think that if I had to pay for it I may be a bit careful about how much I drink. I love raw milk, but my 2 yr old refuses to drink it and only likes it plain 24 hour cultured.

ok, you can tell I'm out of it- I forgot I started this thread:



I'm glad to see there are a lot of us here!

Is anyone reading or has read Nina Planks book- Real Food For Mother and Baby? I just bought it and am almost through. I like it, because it helps me remember the scientific(nutrient) reasons I eat the way I do. I tend to forget what food has what nutrient but I know I need them...

I like her no-nonsense approach. And the part about not NEEDING to eat in the first trimester although I wish she had info about nursing during pregnancy. I find myself starving and have to eat to eat to stay afloat with chasing 3 kids and nursing one.

I also have Adelle Davis's book. I guess this time around I am getting serious about cutting WAY back on carbs, sugar and focusing on the real foods each day. For awhile I got into a lot of bread making but I don't think it was good for me- too much anyway. I also need to avoid swelling because a large family+me swollen on the couch would not be good! I also do not really have very many symptoms except for fatigue and nausea if I do not eat.

Glad to hear how everyone is doing!
