I am not 100% raw, but now that I am pregnant would like to be. Is this harmful? I know that when you go 100% you tend to lose weight. Is this ok?

I have four children whom I had at home. I ate a lot of raw food, probally 80-85 percent raw. I gain over 100 pounds per baby. I was never sick, and all babies got 9,9,9 on their apgar scores. All crawled by 3 months. All are full of muscles now, 13, 10, 7, and 5. The most beautiful strong kids I have ever seen. My 3rd child I did not want to gain the weight so I change my diet and I stop gaining weight, and the baby stop growing, my midwife said hey go back to those smoothies and the raw fruits and veggies. My soon started growing and weighed 9pounds even. I started out my first pregnacy at 121 lbs and I am 5 ft 8 3/4 inches. I went to almost 250. The doctors were not concern becauseI never did I have and abnormal chemicals, all were normal. The only time I am out of wack is when I did not do mostly raw. I lost the weight slowly but consistantly with all the children. The last one I still have some weight, but I went off mostly raw and I am back now, and i am loosing all the SAD diet leftovers.
My children now say ARE WE GOING RAW AGAIN? I saw nothing this time. I jsut eat my food and my kids want what you eat even if it is knees and elbows/ They love what the parents are eating. We know several raw families. WE Have raw pot lucks in our community montly and go to peoples house for raw meals weekly so raw is so much apart of our life that now that I am raw again, they just keep trying to eat my food. So I give them plenty of raw and I am not cooking much for them at all. My husband is even raw with me. :eek: It is going well well well. Do I need to have another baby with you at 40 so you can have a raw pregnant friend? :p

You just made me laugh so hard outloud!!! Uhhh...would you? I am around 75% raw and 25 pounds overweight already. I'm 5 ft 3 inches. So I starting freaking out about getting too big, you know? Todays world is insane. I think it's great that you have other raw families. It takes everything out of me to get my 14 year old and hubby to eat one thing a week good for them!! But I'll keep at it!! And I know my hubby better not give my baby any meat!!! :) D you think it's safe to continue with my MSM or my superfoods?

Ginger, I am not sure about the MSM, but if you are taking in a supplement from a whole food source, like greens or other whole plant foods, it has got to be better than taking a synthetic prenatal vitamin.
