I'm just joining the DDC with baby #2, "due" Sept 23rd.
We eat a pretty traditional foods diet, although some drift away from that in times of rough budget. We have a raw milk share, pastured egg share, make our own yogurt and kombucha, eat mostly wild meats like venison and goose, along with pastured beef and chicken. We soak grains/legumes before cooking, usually. I maintain a sourdough starter for bread and pancakes, although I've been avoiding most carbs while TTC due to a suspicion of PCOS (for which I've also not been drinking milk...just having small amounts of cheese and whole milk yogurt). I keep a jar of "family tea" going almost always (nettle, RRL, rose hips, mint), but mostly I'm the only one that drinks my infusions. DH and I love my sauerkraut, but DS, alas, cannot be coaxed. I'm thinking of putting it on a peanut butter sandwich to see if he'll eat it.
My DS and I take fermented cod liver oil/butter oil combo, although DH won't touch it because his mom made him take CLO as a kid! We do a lot of gardening/foraging/preserving, and have a lot of bone broth, berries, venison and tomatoes put up currently. We generally avoid sugar, and use honey and maple syrup sparingly to sweeten things like baked oatmeal or a nut butter sandwich for DS.
I'm debating about whether or not to re-introduce raw whole milk and some properly prepared grains into my life. I've had some slips and cheats here and there, of course! But, I want to have a really healthy pregnancy and avoid excess weight gain (as I'm starting out overweight to begin with). The limitation/exclusion of refined carbs/milk helped me to lose 15 lbs while TTC. I will start small, with some soaked oatmeal and bits of milk, and see how my body feels.
So far, no nausea or MS. Craving for meats! Tonight I had whitefish tacos on corn tortillas, guacamole and a lemon bar (sugar slip for DS's 4th bday today).
We transitioned to this way of eating after DS was born, so I'm excited to see how this way of life can help with pregnancy.
Cheers to all!
