I'm so happy to be expecting a second baby. The eldest is 11 months old now and I'm 7 weeks pregnant.
But... the sickness has started and I feel so weak and dizzy. Since 9 monthsI'm 70-80 % raw, but now I get sick even thinking of raw food. With effort I managed to make a fruit smoothie this morning, but almonds, avocado, salad, I cannot even think of it...
Yesterday I started to eat bread again, something I didn't imagine to eat ever again. And it made me feel so much better. Today again I've eaten bread.
I really would like to have a high raw pregnancy. During my last pregnancy I was not raw and I had a lot of physical and emotional problems. I've read and heard about the benefits of being raw during pregnancy, and a (high) raw pregnancy is my wish. But something stronger than me seems to be taking over.
I mean, I also have to eat. Even more because I'm still nursing 11 months old baby, who drinks a lot.
Please help. Thanks...
