Beautiful Nausea

Hubby and I are so relieved! I have nausea! Things are looking up for this pregnancy! I'm also convinced that I'm having a boy. All signs point that way.

As I go through my first trimester, I'll let you know how I feel because I'm fairly convinced that taking dietary measures are helping me feel better. I cut way back on refined sugars and white flour. I've cut back on carbs and eat loads of proteins (eggs, cheese, nuts, etc). I'm eating more veggies. I'm drinking kombucha, raw milk, and Bulk Herb Store's Pregnancy Tea. I'm taking a multi-vitamin, B6, Cod Liver Oil, and Folic Acid.

My typical breakfast is two eggs, fruit and nuts.
Lunch is usually a salad topped with feta cheese and cashews.
Dinner is balanced.

There are many benefits to Bulk Herb Store's Pregnancy Tea, but one unexpected benefit for me is that it quenches my unquenchable pregnancy thirst. I drink plenty of water when I'm pregnant, but I always have an unquenchable thirst. This tea really stops that unneccesary thirst.

Well, I'm off to make a mug of that tea and a mug of Orange Spice tea for hubby!

congrats! i came across your site, and i love it! beautifully done! but becareful with the the cod liver oil, it has unsafe amounts of vitamin A for pregnant women! it is good while nursing to increase the amount of fatty acid, but shouldnt really be taken much (or at all) during pregnancy! high levels of vitamin A can cause birth defects. just trying to help :)

I 've heard the same thing about cod liver oil. It's better to use a fish oil that is not from cod liver.

Congrats on the new baby! very exciting!
