Vegan and Pregnant: Week 17


So I have some good news! Hubs and I found out the baby's gender week 15 and we're ecstatic. Baby is happy and healthy...and growing fast! Now the size of a sweet potato, I can't button some of my pants anymore but it's a small price to pay for our little bundle of joy.

Since I work at a hospital we're blessed to have top notch healthcare and going to appointments is so convenient. I've had 2 ultrasounds and heard the heartbeat on a heart monitor...a super healthy 154 beats per minute!

I must admit I've had quite the sweet tooth and trying my best to satisfy the craving in a healthy way. Here's a cereal I'm obsessed with (see pic below). It's a little of everything but contains ingredients that are excellent sources of Calcium, Fiber, Whole Grains and Protein.

Add as much or as little as you want:

-dried cranberries
-dried blueberries
-flax seed
-almond milk




  1. You are just the cutest!

    1. Thank you so much! 35 weeks now...not much longer :-)
