    Newly pregnant with my 4th and I am getting all kinds of questions: Can you do CT? What about eating carbs (don't you need them)? Shouldn't you take a prenatal?

    Here's what I know... I feel amazing. You wouldn't even know I was pregnant except for that little belly bulge (previous pregnancies I've been nauseous.) I've only been doing light CT all summer- cold hose water in the trough in the heat of the day to cool off. Summer is the time for carbs so I guess I eat more of them right now, but winter is coming and why would I need so many carbs just because I'm growing a baby? I still take Vitamin D and a thyroid supplement plus I added Life Extension folate. (Consequently, I naturally front-loaded folate pre-pregnancy by following Epi-Paleo anyway.)

    Anyone been pregnant and Epi-Paleo or know of anyone who is? As much as growing a human being IS a big deal, why is it such a big deal to everyone else in your life?! It's like I'm surrounded mb skeptics because I don't crave Chipotle and ice cream.

    Does the optimal epi-paleo woman need additional supplementation? I say, no. In a less optimal environment such as my wintertime, what do I do to further optimize it for pregnancy and breastfeeding (since Vit D in breastmilk is dependent on exposure in pregnancy for instance?)

    Nothing changes for you when you're pregnant. The story is the same......sun and DHA for the win while grounded.

    I find it interesting what people do and don't do while pregnant. The whole lunchmeat, sushi, raw steak, to wine or not to wine and then the other stuff. I used to think it was a bit overboard to not paint your nails while pregnant and here I am not painting my nails anymore. A recent publication from our healthshare organization told me that I shouldn't eat ANY fish or seafood and to just take a DHA supplement :mad::tears: What detrimental bullshit.

    I mean I started this pregnancy by jetting around on a tube at a waterpark with my mom friends...

    Sounds like fun, though that's not how I was taught you start a pregnancy.

    I won't be taking my wife to any waterparks now.

    It wasn't the beginning of the "process" but I'm pretty sure baby was implanting while I was whooshing across a giant funnel on an intertube to be flushed into a pool of water! :rofl:

    If, during pregnancy, deuterium gets dumped into the baby (babies need it for growth and development) then is it counterproductive to utilize deuterium-depleting methods while pregnant? ie. CT, DDW
