I just wanted everyone to meet our new fruity baby. His father and I went 801010 2 years before we conceived.
The pregnancy was amazing and I felt great the whole time.
I gained 14 lbs and the baby was 7 lbs 14oz.
I started off running about 8 miles a day. This was a cut back from my normal 10 - 15 miles a day.
At about 6 months I cut back to walking 5-10 miles a day and I never ran out of energy.
The whole time I wanted more fruit and less salad/greens.
I found out that nuts and seeds were not my friends and I eliminated them completely during my pregnancy.
I had a few craving for foods from my childhood, but it was never unbearable.
I juiced carrots and some wild greens just to make sure I had enough iron.
The labor was relatively painless and I did not tear at all.
HERE IS LIVING PROOF THAT FRUIT CAN BUILD A BABY:)
I had very little blood loss and I was climbing 6 flights of stairs to go to the cafeteria and rob all the fruit bins only a few hours after the baby was born.
I felt like I could get up and run a marathon after he was born.
CONGRATULATIONS Linzi! :) Your son is PRECIOUS. Please share your story and photos on lfrvfamilies.com.There are quite a few mothers there who would love to hear your experience.
I named him after his father, Donald James Panhorst
Wow, this is great to hear. The horror stories I heard from SAD eaters really have deterred my from ever considering having a baby. I also would never want to attempt it until my body was very clean too. There are so many birth defects today!
Congratulations and thanks for sharing your story! He's a beauty! :-)
This is so great! Thanks so much for sharing! Congratulations! The world needs to hear more stories like yours!!
Wow! Congrats! Great inspiration!
Wow congratulations! Just for the sake of others who don't know much about birth, many mother's who experience natural birth feel like they could "run a marathon" after the birth. Not all, but that is a common sentiment...it is also more prevalent in that community to not tear or have stretch marks...it's not all that uncommon...but I think it is amazing what you were able to do and that your baby came out so big! I drank a lot of carrot juice during my last pregnancy as well, but never really correlated the why...you're the first all-raw pregnancy I've seen in awhile. Enjoy your babymoon.
congratulations! so amazing :) please keep us updated on how everything goes as im sure it will be amazing and an inspiration to those of us who want to someday start our own little families with fruity vibrant children :) love! and blessings!
Congratulations!!! thank you so much for sharing your fruit birth with us, i have been very curious to know how 811 would work for pregnancy. It is such an encouragement to me! Your baby and both of you look healthy and full of life in your pics. so happy for you both!
