Re : Vitamins and more during pregnancy

That makes sense; besides, enslaved chickens can't lay truly good eggs.

Re : Vitamins and more during pregnancy

<t>Has anyone seen extra-nutrient eggs? They have extra vitamin E and omega-3 and something else (DHA? something with 3 initials). They give the chickens a special diet, but they're not free-range. [:(] They cost almost twice as much as ordinary eggs, but the box says "Supports a Healthy Pregnancy,"...

Re : Brewer Diet?

You'd be first in a long line, and you'd be out of a job! What would you do with all that spare time?

Re : Brewer Diet?

Of course I was serious; thanks for your reply. This is certainly more realistic than a blanket 3300-calorie-a-day recommendation. Still not a cure for preeclampsia, unfortunately, but more realistic.

Re : Cholesterol and Preeclampsia

Didn't stop me from getting PE. [:(]<br/> <br/> Also, a few weeks after Tara was born I ended up w...

Re : Vitamins and more during pregnancy

<t>I'm an MTHFR mutant, so I'd probably need extra folic acid even if I weren't TTC. I'm also taking baby aspirin, along with my BP meds. I asked two doctors about taking other extra vitamins, but they both said it wasn't wise to risk overdoses, so for now I'm just getting what's in the prenatals.<b...

Re : Update on Kelly

I've heard that if you can get them to start nursing first, baby endorphins kick in and the shots don't hurt as much. Has anyone tried this, or is it just one of those old wives' tales meant to make new moms feel better?
