30 Bananas a Day!

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.

Me, too! Even though it probably won't be for another decade or so, I'm so excited about welcoming a new life into the world, in the best environment possible!
me three
you know, in Victorian times, pink was for boys!!
i did not know
The ultrasound told me my baby was a boy. Everyone bought me blue boy things. I had a healthy baby GIRL!! She wore all boy clothes for her first 3 months of life.
I don't think there is an accurate way to tell the sex for sure until you see it yourself.
No test is 100% accurate. Don't believe any of them. Mine were all wrong about everything.
I only gained 20 lbs. during my whole pregnancy and everyone was panicking the baby was too small because I got skinny everywhere but my belly grew!!
My girl was born a healthy 6.5 lbs. I was a fruitarian for the whole 1st trimester. Couldn't stomach greens. Not low fat tho. I ate durian and lots of avocadoes each day.
That's beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I need to visit 30 bad more often!

oh thanks!!

no way I am going bakc to that flat hot stinky swamp

I get a lot of people thinking they can condescend to me
It isn't hard to take care of a baby. It is just tiring to begin with. But you adapt. You -can- take care of baby all on your own if you wish. Personally, I found it great to have my parents-in-law nearby. I want to give my best to my son, and I found that sometimes I just needed more sleep in order to be my best. So they would take him for a couple of hours while I rested, and they could enjoy special time with their grandson. As its turned out, he has a special bond with them too, and they are a fantastic influence in these early years.
