We do need a new thread.

I think I'm posting more than rant than anything I'm 6 weeks now. I've been having bits of nausea since like 3 days post ovulation lol, but this week it has hit big-time. Round the clock with lots of dry heaving. No vomiting though. I can still eat, but I'm getting full quickly. And random things are un-eatable (is that a word lol). The other day I could NOT eat tomatoes - they had this nasty metallic taste to me. Yesterday I couldn't eat yummy sour cream.

I think I need to go to smaller meals more frequently. I'm also wondering if more water would help? I'm not drinking a lot but thinking it may help.

I'm struggling to make meals because sometimes the thought of being in the kitchen around food turns my tummy. I normally roast a chicken every week and use the carcass for stock (which we go through by the bucket) but omg, I can't even imagine touching a raw chicken right now.

Blaaaah I was hoping that being so nourished going into this pregnancy would help me avoid some of this nausea!

Ok rant over

I came looking for a March thread, but couldn't find one so I'll just post here.

Just wanted to quickly post that I am very happily postpartum. Theodore Aaron (Teddy) was born Tuesday morning after a much longer than expected labor. He took his time, but had a beautiful birth and weighed about 8lbs at birth.

After all my thinking about postpartum meals I ended up eating a totally non TF meal of baked ziti brought over by our italian neighbors. Oh well, it was traditional to them.

Time to bump up the CLO, which I had trouble doing the last month, and I am slightly anemic, so I need to work on minerals too.

Looking forward to talking postpartum nutrition. We should have a couple more babies soon.......

Congratulations Jessica!!!!!!

I was flipping through NT and on 609 Potassium Broth is specifically mentioned for those recovering from illness or childbirth. Anyone try this?? What about any of the other tonics??

I have not tried the potassium broth, but I might give it a go. I make the beet kvass regularly. That's what my Ukranian grandmother used as medicine. I use the NT recipe, but with about half as much salt as she calls for.

Congrats Jessica!

I've been kind of down in the dumps lately, and not sure why. Today I feel semi back to normal, but still just feel slow, and a little bit sad...

I made butter the other day... So yummy, I'm converted!
