Heidi Staddon Posted September 23, 2012 Share Posted September 23, 2012 Hi fellow Whole 30'ers. I am currently 8 wks along, with my 4th munchkin. Shhh... We have yet to announce it so if you know me on FB (or otherwise), pls keep on the DL. Thx So I thought I'd start up this thread. Hope that's coolio with the Whole9 gang. I found myself checking often for some support and/or women in same boat. And so inme absence if such, figured I would create it. I have done a few Whole 30's before. Great results. Really reshaped my relationship to food. That has forever been the most difficult change, for me, in previous changes. I mean, yes I can eat more protein and produce but until I get to the root of WHY that bread cripples me for 2 days, why would I bother stopping? Ok, leaving out a lot! Lol. But you get my drift. I found myself experiencing the typical nausea beginning at 6 weeks. Figured I could tackle it day by day, and I was... Until a wicked GI bug hit my house. Three of us (note: US!!) got hit hard. I was living off crackers and Gatorade and made no apologies, since I had to still get up each day and function for the rest of the household. Ya know? A week, very very long week, went by and the big is out of the house. *touch wood*. I realized I was preferring the canned soups for my meals alongside the produce. Hmmm... Gotta fix that So I picked up my copies of It Starts With Food (hard copy + e-book) and reminded myself all the good that the Hartwigs teach. Got right back on the Whole30 train. Today is my Day 2. I am not quite 8.5 weeks pregnant officially. (Dont worry, I am the least accurate about that sort of thing). I anticipate a fairly smooth-ish ride as I really do prefer this style of eating. Admittedly, preparation has been not as strong these last few weeks. The thought of food, proteins particularly, right now often makes me queasy. I am also traveling next weekend to an international, themed hotel destination. I am already preparing my list of foods for the cooler and subsequent grocery store stops. I won't post daily, but will come back often to update the good and the bad. Hopefully this will help another woman in similar situation. Happy weekend, happy Day 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
