Vegan Diet and Pregnancy

I had big plans for today’s article, was in the middle of getting it ready, in fact, when my well-meaning, good Samaritan husband decided to go dig out a postal service worker out of snow on Tuesday. Within 30 minutes of getting home he started to cough…almost non-stop. I locked him away and took care of Sprout and household by myself. Last night, as I was putting Sprout to sleep, hoping to have time to work, as she decided that since we disrupted her normal routine (Daddy normally puts her to bed at night and I handle naps) she was going to make me work hard for it. I even tried putting her on a swing (which would normally knock her out in no time), only to give up 40 minutes later (yes, 40 minutes!). As I took her out of the swing, she told me she was hungry, then asked for…chocolate. When I said “no chocolate” she asked to be nursed; when I told her she has to wait until “tomorrow” (I am working on weaning her), she furiously began signing (and saying): “Eat!” After a late meal and additional 15 minutes sitting with her in her room, she was finally asleep, leaving me with little time to do anything except to catch up on emails.

While I will be finishing the planned article in the next couple of days (in which I will tell you about water filtration options), I thought it would be a great idea to share all of the thought provoking articles I had written during my pregnancy about vegan diet and pregnancy, in preparation for next week’s Achieving and Sustaining a Healthy Vegan Pregnancy webinar.
