Hello all! My husband and I have been actively TTC for almost 2 years with no luck. I haven't been on birth control for 6 years! We've both been checked and we're good to go. We finally figured out that I wasn't ovulating. But since going vegetarian last year, I started ovulating 3 months ago! I'm completely confident that it's my new diet, as well as my new view on life. I'm aspiring to be vegan and I want to continue this lifestyle through my pregnancy and lactation. I also want to raise the kiddos vegan. My husband is a meat eater, but he's totally supportive <3
So, any of you ladies in the same boat? I'd love to get some advice from veteran vegans and vegetarians, as well as anyone else (: Good luck to all of us TTC!
Have you looked at the blog for The Kind Life? Alicia Silverstone has posted a bunch of info/articles about being a vegan and pregnant, what supplements you need etc.
Maybe talk to your midwife too, or a midwife.
Have you read "Taking Charge of Your Fertility"? That might also be helpful
I'm actually on that blog right now! So much useful info. I haven't read that yet, I'll look into that, thanks!
I've recently contacted a midwife near my home. Just waiting for a call back. I'm not sure how she'll feel about the veganism though... I live in Texas, it's kind of unheard of here.
Thank you Simone!
