I’m so excited to finally be able to share my exciting news with you, I’m pregnant!!! Watch my segment on Breakfast Television to find out if I’m having a boy or girl!
I’m due in September, my husband and I are thrilled. You may have noticed that I didn’t post many food photos on Instagram Stories from January to March. I had really bad food aversions. I was pretty much living off of smoothies, hummus and veggies, and junk food like pizza, dim sum and french fries.
I’m posting lots of pictures on Instagram and Instagram Stories so follow me there for daily updates and fun pics.
There are a lot of supplements and superfoods it is best to avoid when you are pregnant and not very much information out there of what they are. Since I have been doing lots of research, I decided to put it all together in a book I’m currently writing. I don’t have a release date yet, but if you are interested in following my pregnancy journey and learning more about what to avoid, sign up below.
Supplements I have been enjoying
As you know I have digestive issues and I really like to take enzymes. There are a lot of digestive enzymes that are actually not safe to take when you are pregnant.
I was so sooo excited when Goodness Me sent me these digestive enzymes especially designed for pregnancy.
I don’t take these with every meal, just the more complex meals with lots of protein.
Raw Prenatal from Garden of Life
Taking a good quality prenatal vitamin is really important to do 3 months before you plan to get pregnant and during your pregnancy.
I like Garden of Life’s raw prenatal because it is raw which means no high heat, synthetic binders, fillers, artificial flavours, sweeteners, colours or additives commonly used in tablets.
I take one with every meal.
There is a lot of controversy around essential oils and pregnancy because they can pass through to the baby through the placenta. I have asked my friend Andrea Ashley to cover this in detail in my book.
I generally avoided essential oils during the first trimester. Now that I’m in the second trimester I have started to use them again. I love diffusing the Let There Be Peace & Quiet blends from GoodnessMe to help me relax.
This picture was taken during a beautiful hike in California. Don’t worry, we took lots of breaks and I drank a ton of coconut water. I was 14 weeks pregnant in this photo and just starting to show if I stuck out my tummy!
