Pregnancy Survey

Hey all you fabulous vegan mothers! Would you help out a vegan friend of mine by answering some survey questions she has for a school project? If you were vegan during your pregnancy, please answer these questions and you can send them back by pm if you don't want everyone to see.  It would be so helpful. Thanks!!

No

Prenatal multi (DEVA)+ vegan DHA

How were your magnesium levels during pregnancy?

not sure...

Did you smoke during pregnancy?

No

Did you drink alcohol during pregnancy?

No

Did you exercise consistently prior to getting pregnant?

Not really...regular walking

How much weight did you gain during your pregnancy?

30 pounds

On a scale of 1- 10, how were fatigued were you during pregnancy?
Assuming 1 is the least fatigue, I would say 1 - I really didn't notice a difference between not being pregnant and being pregnant, fatigue-wise

One a scale of 1-10 What would you say your energy level was during pregnancy?

7 - just about where it always was pre-pregnancy.

What did your baby weigh at birth?
6 lb 12 oz

When did your baby say its first word?

Uh, 9 months? She signed her first word at 7 months.

When did your baby take its first step?
Independently... approx. 11 months

How many naps did your baby take a day and for how long?

After the itty-bitty newborn stage (in which there really isn't a difference between day and night-time sleeping), 3 naps per day of maybe 1 hour each
Then 2 naps per day from about 8 months-12months, 1-1.5 hours in length each
About 12 months until now, 1 nap per day usually 1.5 hours-2 hours

Was your baby eating most foods you gave him or her?

When? She didn't really accept solid foods until about 8 months, then she was pretty good about eating anything pureed. She never got good at swallowing non-pureed foods (she's actually seeing an OT for that now) and is now developing some finicky-ness even about her pureed foods (which I think is regular toddler behavior)

What age did your baby start sleeping through the night?

She still doesn't (19 months)....wakes up 3-4 times per night to nurse.
