Hey everyone! We're a mostly paleo couple (he's the one with the slip ups) and we're interested in conceiving in the next few months. This would be our first child. I am interested in other women's paleo pregnancy stories or SAD pregnancy stories and any personal experiences with a paleo pregnancy vs. SAD (if you've experienced one or more of each). Even if you don't have a comparison, I would love to know what your experience was in terms of morning sickness (did you have it, when did it kick in and when did it go away, how did you deal with it, were your experiences different on paleo vs. SAD, etc.), food aversions, complications, etc., and if you have any recommendations pre-conception (maybe foods that would make up for a pre-natal vitamin), exercises, etc.
A little about me: Right now I IF everyday, mostly for convenience and because I am so used to it, have been doing it for over a year now. I only drink water until about 5PM and eat for a few hours. My diet varies day to day, right now I am having a lot of fruit because it's cheap and in season, so some nights I will eat a 3 lb papaya, a quart of strawberries, 1 lb of grapes or fresh pressed apple juice to start things off (maybe 3 nights out of the week have a fruit load) and then dive into a pretty high fat meal, usually some cooked greens with grassfed butter or nitrate free organic bacon fat or a salad with radishes, carrots, onions, tomatoes and avocado, grassfed organic beef, either ground or a roast, sometimes yams or white potatoes with butter, a few macadamia nuts, dates if I have a sweet tooth, and occasional white rice. I have no known food allergies. I take magnesium, K2, zinc, D3 and calcium supplements. I also take fish oil when I remember it. I have been off birth control pills for over a year. I'm 30, a healthy body weight, I walk a lot (live in NYC) and do some yoga and stretching, some weight lifting, but like once every 2 weeks.
I guess what I am hoping to hear is that a paleo pregnancy is smooth sailing, though I know everyone is different, and that your experiences won't necessarily be mine, but I am just curious to know other women's experiences. Thanks!
