I'm planning a primal pregnancy. My problem is that I tend to be completely primal for a few weeks, and then just give up and eat total junk for awhile. I'm worried that pregnancy cravings could make that tendency worse. I've heard of women eating primal diets who gained very little weight during pregnancy. Obviously this will vary from person to person, but I am really not wanting to gain any fat this time, and that is what grains and sugar do to me.
I am still up about twenty pounds from my pre-first-baby weight. That was my "eating for two/tons of ice cream" pregnancy. With my second, I gained very little and lost it right away, but was not eating primal. This will be my third. I'm also hoping that a primal pregnancy will mean I have more energy all the way through, and that gaining less weight will make me somewhat less uncomfortable at the end, especially since I usually go to 41-42 weeks.
