Hi guys! This is like my millionth round with whole30 BUT my first while pregnant. I typically eat paleo but since I found out I was pregnant I was eating “whatever the baby wants” so lots of grains and dairy, fried foods, bread, junk food, right before I found out I was pregnant was the holidays so lots of not great eating habits for at least the last 5-6 months. I’m usually paleo on weekdays but weekends are my “cheat days” ANYWAYS so I’m on day 3, my diarrhea started yesterday, got worse today and is accompanied by stomach cramps. I’m not sure if this is from a long time of bad eating and I’m “detoxing” or what. I am making sure to drink lots of water and caffeine free tea to stay hydrated but I’m not sure what could be causing the diarrhea! Yesterday For breakfast I’ve been having chorizo breakfast hash with 2 eggs and half an avocado. Lunch leftover taco zucchini boats. Dinner 5 ingredient spaghetti pizza pie. Little bit of fruit, little bit of nuts for snacks because I’m pregnant and am a hairstylist and I’m on my feet all day and I need snacks! lol Today all I’ve had yet is the same breakfast as yesterday. And coffee and yeah yeah I know coffee doesn’t help any but I’ve never had this issue during any of my other whole30 rounds. HELP! :(
This is the first time I have ever joined/posted to any forum. It has never really interested me to get into online conversations, but I have found a lack of support/information on breastfeeding and doing the Whole30. I think I have found one woman that blogged about completing a Whole30 and maintaining her milk supply. So here I am, ending Day 4 of my 3rd Whole30. Let me add that I have started many of Whole30’s since my first try/completion, but have only managed to complete it one other time. The last one I started I ended of pregnant (didn’t think we could have children) 9 months before our wedding date! My doctor advised me to quit so that I was not restricting the baby from a “balanced diet” and the stress of removing food. (To this day, I wish I wouldn’t have listened) I ended up going off the rails for my entire pregnancy and maternity leave. I ended up gaining 4o lbs (I do not know how it wasn’t more) I was already 10 lbs over weight when I got pregnant. I have yoyo’d back and forth with healthy life and then binge on everything I want life. I am from New Orleans and work on the French Quarter so temptation is EVERYWHERE. It’s culturally engrained in you to drink with family, friends, co-workers. It’s just what you do. When I am to go grab a drink, and I tell them I’m on the Whole30 you should see the looks I get! People try to talk me out of it, tell me I’m crazy, tell me how they absolutely could not give up drinking for 30 days. Honestly, quitting drinking and eating sugary treats, creamy coffees, and fried food- I have never felt better in my life. Probably the same reason I keep coming back to the reset. I recently started to listen to Melissa Hartwig’s book, Food Freedom, while I make my hour and fifteen minute commute to work. But enough about my back story! My current situation is I want to live a healthy lifestyle and not be emotionally attached to food and alcohol. I want to continue to breastfeed my child and worry about my milk supply tanking as a result. I wonder what other women are experiencing. Am I alone out there ? Anyone else trying our Whole30 while breastfeeding and working full time ?
