Vegetarians TTC

Postby starbuckschick » Tue Jul 08, 2008 7:15 pm

I'm a vegetarian... mostly lacto-vegetarian and I'm wondering if there are any others out there who would like to chat about TTC as a vegetarian?

I've been vegetarian for about 6 years. I have some vegetarian pregnancy books... but I thought friendly support would be good too! :) I know as soon as I get my BFP I'm going to constantly have people telling me to eat meat. Whatever!

I've been a vegetarian for almost 9 years now.

I didn't have any trouble getting pregnant with my daughter.

That is what happened to me- my family said "eat meat"... yeah right! They got over it though.

I did have a few problems during my pregnancy. I developed anemia and had to go on iron pills twice a day. My protein level also got really low and I had to adjust my diet. (eating more protein of course) Besides that I really didn't have any problems.

My only advice is to let your doctor know right away when you do get pregnant so they can advise you on anything you need to change.

I'm not TTC right now but I will be in October hopefully. :D
