being Vegan and tryin to conceive
I just recently have gone vegan and now I read about how being vegan is bad for ttc. I need to watch my protien levels real close, take b12 and soy is a no no. I am so confuse right now that I don't know if I want to stay vegan or not.I thought going vegan was a soooo much healthier for you and could reduce heart problems now it seems like it could be dangours to your health if your vegan and not getting enough of this or enough of that but if you eat meat then you don't have to worry abou ti. :'( why is trying to be healthy so confussing???? does anyone have any suggestions for me? I really would love to stay vegan but I also want to have more children do I have to give one up for the other?
it is healthier and DON'T WORRY! stress is probably bad for trying to conceive, veganism definitely isn't. Take a look around stroller derby, there are many many vegan mamas here.
Other than taking a prenatal vitamin with B12 and folic acid, it wasn't a problem. And I ate soy too.
there are tons of healthy vegan moms and vegan babies so don't freak out!
take care of yourself and take a prenatal and you will be fine and healthier than most pregnant ladies stuffing their faces with crappy food!
wow!! I didn't realize HOW bad I needed some positive words I feel like crying (happy tears) I have had nothing but negative,negative,negative :-\ lately thanks for ALL the links I have already started bookmarking.
don't worry hun you will be fine! just eat variety and take your vitamins, fuck the haters! i swear i get so annoyed that when your pregnant all a sudden everyone had to voice their opinion about what you should be doing or what your missing (and i've never even been pregnant)... do you, take care of yourself, and ignore it!

I'm vegan and 8 1/2 months pregnant. Super healthy! We conceived 3 months after stopping birth control and have had nothing but perfect bloodwork and check ups. I take a vegan prenatal, but that's all. I've tried to eat healthy, but I'm not gonna lie - I eat plenty of junk too. If you have any questions, PM me. You'll be fine, I promise.
