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!
