helloooo!


Just popping my head in here!

Vegan through undergrad, got sick (unrelated but can never TOTALLY be sure if it worsened it which haunts me) started eating some dairy but it never worked too well for me and partway into pregnancy I'm now 17 weeks into I just couldn't face it anymore.

So instead of abandoning vegetarianism or veganism due to pregnancy, I'm returning to it!

Ha.

And will probably stick with it after that because I always preferred it.

No transition issues here. It's the most delicious and happiest way of eating!
Except I'm definitely nervous now about pregnancy and veganism. Which is doable but only if you do it properly.
And who knows if I am.

So hi to all the transitioning vegans!
We can do this and it's totally worth it!

Hi Beets&Beats,

It might put your mind at ease if you made an appointment with a Registered Dietitian who specializes in vegetarian nutrition and in prenatal nutrition. They can quickly give you complete information about vegetarian nutrition for mothers-to-be, and they can help you to adjust your diet, if necessary.

In the United States, you can find a local Registered Dietitian through this website: http://www.eatright.org . Just click on the "Find an Expert" button, located in the upper-right-hand portion of the webpage.

In the U.K., you can find a local Registered Dietitian on the Freelance Dietitians website: http://www.freelancedietitians.org/

In New Zealand, you can find a local Registered Dietitian through the Dietitians New Zealand website: http://dietitians.org.nz/find-a-dietitian/

In Canada, you can find a local Registered Dietitian at the Dietitians of Canada website: http://www.dietitians.ca/Find-a-Dietitian.aspx .

Yup, already done it . Feeling pretty ok with this. Just saying if there is any discomfort going vegan it's just perhaps that.
Plus I know I'm having a boy and people won't pipe down about what my eating soy will do to it. But I know that isn't actually evidence-based. Slightly thrown by a friend who grew up vegan and was born to a vegan mother turning out to be completely sterile but I'm sure there are many who are not and it's unconnected!

Joined yonks ago, WWG! But just never checked in regularly because I was too busy.
Now I am not... or I'm better at managing my time...

Glad to be here and love your name! And Canada. So much. I think I left parts of my soul there as a kid...
