Yep I'm pregnant again. It seems to happen every time I loose. I've been eating primal. Lots of fat, moderate protein and no more than 50 grams of carbs a day. Just wondering what a safe but minimal level of carbs is for pregnancy. I'd like to gain only what I need to gain this pregnancy. Usually I don't gain anything until about 6 months and then BAM! I'm 70 lbs heavier than i was. Mfp sets the carb reccomendations at 240 something. That seems awfully high. I was thinking 100-150? Does that sound right?

Well, ya know....women on Paleo/Primal eating plans tend to be pretty fertile...CONGRATS!


I follow several families/women on FB that eat paleo/primal.  They have very healthy pregnancies and babies without adding a lot of carbs back into their diet.  Whole Family is the most recent.

Here are few articles I found that may help:
