Did Paleo Help Me Get Pregnant?


I guess you might say my husband and I are dinosaurs of a sort: we love big families. We love calling kids a blessing (it's a mindset!), love raising future adults who will contribute to their communities (yes, in spite of their "carbon footprint"), and, well, love babies. After years of struggling with miscarriage and "secondary infertility," we were thrilled to find out a few days ago that we are expecting Baby G.4.0!

Upon receiving the news, one of the first things I did was google "Pregnancy AND Paleo." What I was really looking for was information on how this way of eating might affect my pregnancy and if I needed to make any changes. What I found was a very interesting article pointing to the fact that Paleo might have actually helped me get pregnant. How exciting. One more evidence that Paleo is healing my body.

I plan on continuing Paleo throughout the pregnancy, and I'd love to hear other's experiences about how it worked for them. Did you make any adjustments to your eating? Did you supplement with prenatals or folic acid or calcium? For those who've had a Paleo and a non-Paleo pregnancy, how can you compare weight gain/post-delivery weight loss between pregnancies? I'm still about 15 pounds from goal weight, so I'm wondering if Paleo might give me that awesome basketball tummy instead of feeling whale-like putting on a full 30 pounds, distributed everywhere! I feel a bit overwhelmed being a newbie Paleo non cavegirl and embarking on a stage in life where diet is of utmost importance. I'd love any help I can get!

  1. Well I've never been pregnant and never will be but my sister-in-law got pregnancy related type II diabetes half way through her first pregnancy and the diet the doctors put her on was pretty much paleo to be honest. She lost two pounds from the middle of pregnancy to delivery. And she was not in the least bit overweight to begin with. And my nephew was a perfect 7 pounds when born and grew pretty quickly the first half year but that has evened out now.

    So you'll be great!

  2. Thanks for the input! I appreciate it. I've heard of doctor's doing that for diabetes during pregnancy and hadn't thought about it as "Paleo" per se, but often their recommendations, essentially are. Great point!

  3. Just wanted to drop in and say congratulations! You must be due right around now. Hope everything went well with the pregnancy! (I'm pregnant and due at the end of the month and have been doing mostly Paleo and loving it.)

  4. Dear everyone
    and anyone who is thinking of speaking to Dr obodo -do it! @(templeofanswer@hotmail.co.uk ,+2348155425481)

    I had a reading about 6 weeks ago when Dr obodo said he saw a pregnancy imminently. This did not seem like it could possibly be true as I have been told for about 9 years that this would be near on impossible for me, coupled with the additional factor of birth control. Anyway.....this week I found out I am pregnant, I am overwhelmed but excited.
    I thoroughly recommend Dr obodo as the most accurate, truthful and kindly spell caster I have ever spoken to. If you want to know what the future really has in store then put your trust in this man he really is truly gifted
    Thank you and much love.
