Hi catemom and other vegan/almost vegan mamas!!
I am almost 12 weeks pg and I've been vegan for 11 years and have two boys already. This is my first pregnancy completely gluten-free (celiac disease) and unfortunately something had to give this first trimester. So, I have sadly not been able to eat all vegan for the past few weeks. I have been way more sick this time around. It seems like nothing that is vegan and gluten-free can get past my lips. I crave bread and granola like nothing else! So, I've had to find gf protein bars that I can palate (which are never vegan). I've been living on gf corn flakes and soy milk, protein bars, and apples. That's a far cry from my super salads that I had every lunch and dinner. Oh, and I can't even get near garlic.
I'm seeing a dietician in a week just to see if she has some ideas to help. But I'm hoping to have a more accomodating appetite soon.
This is our last baby and while I didn't find out the sex of my boys, I have to know for this one. I really want a girl. They won't tell you the sex before 21 weeks here (due to gender selection concerns), so I have a while to wait before I know.
I'm busy working on my PhD, but I lurk tons. I'll try to post at least once a week.
Happy pregnancy to you all!!!
