Hi...long time no talk...
I just found out i was pregnant a week ago, best birthday present ever!!!!(birthdaytoday)
I already went to jinjee┬┤s page and got the ebook...but i did look through alissa┬┤s book and gabriel, and just couldn┬┤t find any info on raw pregnancy. I am wondering if anyone knows what i should be eating more of. Green juices of course, nuts, etc... i just feel so overwhelmed and happy :o
any ideas and personal stories welcome!!!

-Just a quick thought / opinion:
-Don't change your diet to radically during this most critical time of your life. Make small changes.....and eat a VERY wide variety of fresh raw produce......in every increasing stretches.....from where you are comfortable with right NOW. You should have no problems.
-Avoid fish and animal products as much as possible to stay away from merucury, parasites, and toxic compounds. Wash produce thoroughly.
-Success and freedom to you!

Congratulations!! That is awesome. Your baby will have such a great start with a raw mom!!! If you are already eating a raw diet that you feel comfortable with, I don't see the need to change now. Just listen to your body as your pregnancy progresses. You will do great!!
All the best,
Sounds like this is your first??
I agree with the others - no sudden changes.
A couple of interesting books you might read while you are waiting:
The Continuum Concept by Jean Liedloff
Magical Child by Joseph Chilton Pierce
All the best

Congratulations! I am interested in the same topic, because I trust raw foods, but my husband doesn't, so we put off our second baby's conception untill I get him articles and pictures of the kids about kids born to raw mamas.
Good luck for you! I don't think pregnancy has much different nutrition needs than any other time - maybe a bit more(300-500 in the second and third trimester) and you should be even more careful to eat enough greens if you don't want to have problems with teeth.
