Let's talk food.
I have decided to become super strict about my gluten intake and have added the removal of ALL dairy in addition to that. I began this yesterday and will continue it throughout the first 6+ months of the babies life as a minimum.
The gluten is a necessity for my well-being and the dairy is more of an experiment for nursing. DD1 is like me in the sense that neither of us can handle large amounts of dairy well. Certain things, not at all. I recall reading that it was a good idea to remove dairy one month prior to EDD and continue on for as long as possible before introducing it to the child. I'm curious to see how it will affect DD2 if I do this.
Also, I know it does wonders for helping with post partum weight loss. I've been especially bingy with both gluten and dairy lately and I'm looking quite puffy. I'm hoping that by dialing this in, I can halt any remaining weight gain I may be in for. I'm sitting at just over 30lbs gained this time around. With DD1 I gained around 60 so I'm already doing better but I did start out higher this pregnancy due to being unable to get past a plateau that could have been a result of my not yet diagnosed Hashimotos.
Are you doing anything different? What are your go to items or meals?
