I wonder what else is in that folic acid pill; maybe you're reacting badly to an "inert ingredient" rather than the folic acid itself. If you can stomach them, eat lots of leafy greens. Those things are loaded with folate. Hence the name,  folate: from foliage.

I don't think so, the pills are absolutely tiny.  Luckily I think they are going to process my Swami order after all.  I am glad, because things are getting quite bad again in the intestines department.  This all suddenly came on in August and hasn't left since after several rounds of antibiotics (which just make things worse), and constantly I am expelling undigested food and weird furry ball things.  I am losing my faith in doctors.

Are you taking probiotics and/or eating cultured foods?

yes I have been taking probiotics all along.  They don't do anything.  It is Summer here and I can't go camping or anything like that because I have so much diarrhea in the mornings.  It's depressing.  Am awaiting more advice from my gastro doc once he has a look at some exam results I took.  The arrhythmia is very disconcerting as well.  I tried taking magnesium and multi minerals for that but it just seems to make it worse not better!

If magnesium makes it worse I wonder if you need more calcium?

yes well I tried that as well - you know balancing the two but no improvement.  

Swami got emailed to me so I now have my new lists.  Thankfully I got back just about all of my BTD foods as neutrals and a few as beneficials.  Honey and apples are now avoids again but apple juice is neutral.

I am wondering about parmesan cheese though.  It is a diamond according to Swami, but I am mildly casein intolerant (from testing).  The questions only ask about lactose intolerance which I don't have.  I would love to be able to eat cheese again but am not sure about this.  I will ask in the Swami section anyway.

as you are 7 months pregnant the BT diet is working for you I'd stick to that, i wouldn't consider making any changes at 7 months.

didn't realise you were 7 months on so i would leave the cheese for the next 2 months that i commented on in another thread.

keep all simple

The lentils may be helping the diarrhoeal.

if you eat less of the following may help

onions, wheat, lentils, apples, apricots, pears, sorbitol, fructose, maltodextros, mannitol, baked beans, ans especially avoid pistachio nuts. it may actually be worth looking at swami thinking about it but makes the changes slowly.

the following veg will help reduce your problem.

sweet potato, broccoli, green beans, carrot, parsnip, ginger, romaine lettuce, pumpkin, sweede or turnip, courgette,

fruit - that is better banana, blueberries, grapefruit, pineapple,

also pumpkin seeds.

fingers crossed for you.oxo

the medication you are on - put a link up to the ingredients if you can

Loops, are you sure you did the SWAMI program?  What was it that you got by email?

If using SWAMI Xpress--The percentage is located on page 4 or 5 of the diet report.

You must do two things to get a percentage:

Specify "Determine GenoType For Me" if you want a percentage calculated.

GenoType:

Also answer "No" to the question: "Print Abbreviated Diet Report"

Quoted from Andrea AWsec
Please do not exercise during pregnancy--- it depletes the babies oxygen it is as if you are smoking to the baby when you exercise.


Wow, it finally makes sense now.. my younger brother is an Explorer 100%, while the rest of us are "normal" Hunters.  I've tried asking my mom if she did anything different while carrying him, but she swears we were all the same.  I know she did exercise a lot with all of us, so maybe she did more cardio with Andrew.   Must be the only explanation since she didn't smoke or (as she claims) have any unusual stress.

so why does everybody recommend gentle exercise then?  Is it really that bad?  I was thinking of going for a little swim this morning.

I think the key is to do gentle exercises, and not over-tax yourself. Honestly, Andrea's post on this thread was the first time I'd ever read anything about exercise during pregnancy being dangerous. I have read in numerous sources how gentle exercise is beneficial, and most of those sources also stress the importance of recognizing your limits and not over-exerting yourself. I've also seen references to specific exercises being dangerous (such as certain weight lifting machines.)

Since you're not in the best of health, be even more cautious.

A gentle swim, a walk, or a "yoga for pregnancy" DVD should be fine. Now isn't the time to start jogging if you're not used to it.

Swimming seems gentle enough.

Exercise per se is not bad for a pregnant woman, but the type and intensity.  

If the pregnancy is at risk, light, regular exercise seems more appropriate than vigorous exercise.

With my second pregnancy, I was spotting after 7 1/2 months.  I was strongly encouraged by my midwives to lie down several times a day with my legs elevated higher than my torso.  I did this and it really seemed to stabilize my body.

so I was looking for parmesan cheese here in Chile, and there is hardly any!  However, there is Reggianito cheese.  On Wikipedia it says that Reggianito is really the same as parmesan, just the Argentinian version and smaller cheeses or something like that.

Because....guess what??  I am SERIOUSLY craving hard cheese.  I have been taking my calcium as well....I will be 8 weeks preggas tomorrow.  I have an ultrasound this morning.  The thing is I haven't touched dairy for years.  I usually only crave cheese if I have been eating it.  The smell of just about all cooked food apart from rice, tuna and cheese is turning me off.  I was making a cheese omelette for my hubby this morning and the smell was seriously good to me.  I was nearly throwing up clearing the plates from a meat dish the night before.

The good news is that I am finding rice is very good for my gut.  All kinds of rice.  So the doc is right on with regards to explorers and rice.  

So back to the cheese.  Reggianito is not listed at all on my Swami, but parmesan is a diamond.  I used to adore Regianitto.  It is a very hard almost spicy cheese.  I assume if it is essentially the same as parmesan I should go ahead and eat it?  If I react badly I will just have to cut it out again.

Thanks

Go ahead and give it a try. Your primary goal is to eat enough to support the baby's growth, and if you can tolerate the cheese, have as much as you want.

I hope you're able to get in some veggies and/or fruits as well. Tuna, rice, and cheese for every meal is quite fine (and sounds tasty mixed together!) as long as you're also getting some produce in.

oh gosh no, what I meant was as far as cooked-hot food was concerned I can't seem to stomach much.

I am eating loads of fruit, and raw carrot and celery, also spinach.  Fruit doesn't make me sick.  It's the smell of meat stews that are really bad right now.  Pretty much all cooked food.  But the smell of cooking cheese - that smells amazing.  And rice tastes really good.  I can eat fish and very well done thin strips of beef I can just about do.

I just had my 8 week scan and everything looks great - saw a heartbeat etc.

I think I will go ahead with the Reggianito.  It doesn't seem right to be craving something so badly when I am not in an addiction-withdrawal cycle and not to go ahead with it.

My general philosophy is to indulge cravings for healthy, wholesome foods while pregnant. I just find it interesting that you can tolerae fish but can't tolerate meat; when I was pregnant it was the exact opposite. I wonder if the baby is an A, and that's why you're not liking meat right now. What's the blood type of the baby's father?
