Thanks for your information Jenny, you must know how it feels being panic and wanting to know everything that is right for you and your baby so you can have a healthy baby as you are having your first one yourself. I'm just curious I'll get once in a while light cramps it feels like that it will last me 1-2 minutes and its not all the time but it's a few times. Is that normal throughout the beginning of a pregnancy?

High quality Atlantic krill oil is a better option for meat eaters as it doesn't pose a risk of mercury contamination since they are so tiny. I personally take Ovega-3. The Omega 3 is sourced from algae. I was taking flax oil, but this seems like it's better quality, and it also has DHA & EPA, the flax doesn't. I wouldn't worry about the fish oil you have taken already. You are only 4 weeks and you already stopped, you should be fine (: Krill oil would be your best option if you want animal sourced Omega 3.

Thanks Jenny, this is very helpful. I am 4 weeks pregnant and this is our first child as well and I'm also a natural living kinda girl. I have been taking some Omegas and I was just reading online somewhere that it said that we should stay away from fish because of the mercury. So I stopped taking it but I'm just curious if it could have done some harm?

@ Jaqui - I live in Texas and my midwife cost is $3500. She is a CPM, my insurance only covers CNM's :( But I love who I chose and I'm not willing to sacrifice anything as this is my first baby. I was told I could file with ins and appeal it, but it's not likely they will pay anything. I decided against a CNM because they have a lot of hospital training and I am more of a natural living kinda girl, a CNM just doesn't fit for me. As for your diet, I am almost a full time vegan. I eat almost no animal products at all.  I have been so nauseous lately it's been hard to eat anything. I normally avoid microwaves all together, but I have been eating some organic vegan soups lately that I heat in the micro. I only do it at work though, maybe twice a week. I personally think microwaves are very bad for our health, and it changes the molecules in our food... But every once in a while won't hurt I don't think.

Congrats Jaqui, i hope you have a smooth pregnancy. I'm affraid i can't really advise about the microwave as i don't use them but good luck with everything.

Hey ladies!! We got our BFP and we are SO excited as this is our first child! I know this is a "Trying to Conceive & Waiting to Try" group but I just have a few questions to those out there who are experienced and know. I am health freak and so I'm just curious on things that I should avoid. I'm celiac and lactose and can't eat meat because of digestive problems so I don't eat a whole lot of bad foods but If i were to warm up some food on the microwave is what alright? If there is anything else I should know I would appreciate it and thanks again ladies!! :)

CONGRATS Alyse!!!  So happy to see another BFP=)

@ Jaquie It really vary on where you live,  in So Cal its $5,000 plus and I have heard of MW getting coved but you have to pay upfront and the MW bills after the birth and will give back what they get. I look for a low coast MW right now and if I dont find one I going to have a UC Good Luck=) 

@ Emily I really hope this is your month=)) i know it was so hard TTC with a 4 year old. GL & FC 

Tons of BABY dust to all

Comment by Emily Sweat on January 13, 2012 at 10:01am

Wow... Congrats to everyone who got their BFP!! I have a feeling that this might be my month!! I'm supposed to O today... So fingers crossed!! It sure does take a lot of planning to get pregnant when your husband works nights and you only have a few hours a day to spend together along with your 3 1/2 year old.... lol... Oh well... I'm already so anxious to be able to test... I guess we will see how long I can hold out... :)

Thanks ladies! :) I was just wondering if any of you know how much it cost to have a midwife deliver your baby here in the states? I know every midwife is different but roughly how much? and have you guys come across any midwifes that are cover through insurance? Thanks :)

Comment by Chrissie Russell on January 6, 2012 at 6:58pm

Baby dust to all.
