Do you?


- I eat lunch meat without heating it up (I'm a rebel, I know).

- I eat fish whenever and how much I want.

- I don't take prenatal vitamins or any suppliments.

-I sleep on my back.

- I dont stick to a specific diet, I eat when and what I want. (I also exercise at the same intesity)

-I consume just as much caffine as I did before pregnancy (maybe more now).

Obviously, I don't drink, or take medications I shouldn't, but that's kind of it.

That's my confession!

I follow every single one I could find. But I had emergency surgery and had to take painkillers he could become addicted to, so many class c antibiotics, and there were many chances for me to go into shock from pain and surgery itself so. Though I wish I hadn't I broke some other guidelines

Meh, my dr tried to convince me to stop handling my horses because I could get injured.. I was handling horses before pregnancy, I will continue. I didn't ride though.

I take prenatal vitamins and cut back on my caffeine intake (went from 12 or more cups of coffee a day to about 2ish) but other than that I don't stick to any spicific guidelines about diet.

No, I took vitamins when I remembered and I did stay away from raw sushi. Everything else I did as I wanted. I continues working at the fire dept and with the ambulance. Everything is fine with ds. Dd us fine too .. She IS MISSING a pinky but it's not a big deal and it's not from anything I've done. If I have a 3rd I won't flow guidelines either.

I follow most. I rarely eat deli meat but always heat it up, I didn't really drink caffeine before so now I have maybe one caffeinated drink a week, if that. I also take prenatals (I'm anemic so extra iron helps) and I definitely calmed down on the exercise, I've already had losses and had bleeding twice this pregnancy.
