I have about three days before the start of my Summer semester, so I wanted to take a little time to update the blog. Even though I haven’t updated in some time, I still get emails from people asking questions and curious about how everything is going and I really appreciate that.
Anyone who has read our previous blog posts will know that Amanda, after suffering 3 miscarriages, became pregnant again last year. For 6 years we were trying to conceive and start a family, and after switching to paleo she became pregnant twice within just a few months. I attribute the success of becoming pregnant to positive changes in our hormones as we moved to a natural, gluten-free diet.
The fact that after 6 years, we successfully conceived twice in such a short period of time was pretty amazing. And while the first paleo pregnancy unfortunately did not end well, the second turned out very well indeed.
I’d like to introduce you all to our baby girl, Ava, and what has been taking up most of our time for the last few months:
We’ve been having a blast with her. Her pediatrician says that she is completely healthy. She literally impresses us every day with how quickly she is able to learn new things.
I’ve been wanting to add this post for a long time to let anyone else in a similar situation know that if wanting to start a family is something you really want to do, you shouldn’t ever give up. We have had some very painful times, but our daughter makes them all worth it.
I don’t know if switching to paleo will guarantee you will have a baby.
I can guarantee that if you do start eating naturally, you will almost certainly lose weight, you will almost certainly be healthier and you will definitely be in a much better position to not only conceive but to have less problems with your pregnancy.
And then you might just end up having a paleo success story of your own.
