Well I am 7 weeks pregnant with #3 and I hardly feel pregnant... Yesterday I ran 6 miles at my normal pace and just felt awesome. I workout a bit less, and less intense, because I don't have as much energy but overall still great. So yesterday was a better day for me; on low days I do a lighter workout.
A couple weeks ago I was pretty tired, but that passed quickly. I am back to my normal sleeping hours, and I am very active during the day with little down time!
I've hardly had any nausea at all, which I call a huge success story for my health lifestyle. In my second pregnancy (where this blog begins) I was eating a higher percentage raw, but more fats and some processed foods; and in that pregnancy I struggled with nausea day after day and spent most of my time resting on the couch (although it was markedly better than my first pregnancy on SAD). In the 80/10/10 world you hear this question a lot:
"Is it better to eat a low-fat cooked diet, or a high-fat raw diet?"
...and the raw gurus never answer. Well here is your answer folks, it is more important to eat low-fat and then you work on the percentage of cooked foods in your diet. That's what the Fruit Predominant Diet is all about, why to a raw foodist it is a more lenient diet, and yet it is more effective!
I consider this pregnancy a testiment to the Fruit Predominant Diet, as well as to being fit (since that is another difference between this pregnancy and previous ones).
Anyhow, I am due Jan. 7th and hoping for another UC. But I will say I had something magical about me in my last pregnancy that I don't feel this time--at least, yet. As time passes I will get more into visualizing and communicating with the baby, but so far I haven't done much to connect with this pregnancy. Actually to be honest I have been having a harder time accepting it and being excited about it. I think last time I wanted to be pregnant so bad, and I wanted that princess so bad, as well as the magic of my first UC, living so much by faith and everything. Now with baby #3 it's more ho-hum, more "business." I would love some comments on this, can you relate? Is that just what it's like to have kids past the first couple?
I need to find that magic again...
