I am pregnant and all these people around me tell me I need protein, and blah and blah so I tell them, Leafy greens have protein and go on and talk about all the research I read.
People don't listen. The next day its something else. I get comments that I am not seeing a doctor. I get hints that I am doing damage to my baby, or not being wise. Comments like, " YOUR BODY WANTS PROTEIN"
or to give in to my cravings for Big Macs and Sardines with peanut butter. Because Its what baby wants,
I am told my cravings for junk food are because I need meat.
I think because I am responsible for someone else, that I have to do what every body else does, when pregnant. EXCUSE ME
That I no longer KNOW, just cuz I am a woman.
I don't want to get shot up in my spine, xray my fragile fetus, get cut open in my belly and to my ass, have my baby in formaldehyde or drugged up with fake vitamin pills. I don't want a man around me when I give birth I dont know.
I want natural, quick, by myself, so my brain feels safe and does it naturally. I have seen many videos of women doing this in bathtubs,
I don't want to be fat like all those girls who tell me I need meat. Its like they make me food and put plates in my face, good for baby, and they don't get the message and its ruining friendships.
The other day I had a smoothie and my friend was like, " You cant have just that..it's not substantial!"
Its getting personal.
Just my SAD eating cooked food friends. And girlfriends.
I need this, I need that.
"Ever hear of folic acid? Of course not, cuz that's what pregnant women take and you have no idea cuz you are not seeing a doctor!"
I think its kind of rude.
