I know this is a very quiet thread but maybe some of those with babies who are now in college will chime in?
I started IVf and should have my implantation surgery in 32 days. Woohoo!!!!
I'm a type i diabetic and have been low carb for about 14 years (around 30-35 net per day).
My Dr wants me to bump up my carbs slightly, and we both feel comfortable with 50-60 per day. I know many people have had very successful pregnancies in ketosis, but after everything we have been through i don't want to risk a thing and I know 50-60 will be manageable on the diabetes front.
I am taking prenatals, but still a little worried about folic acid. Any other nutrients i should be extra focused on (compared to non low carb pregnancies)?
I also don't eat red meat, so I plan to eat mussels and shrimp a couple times each week and lots of leafy greens....
Here is an example of what I imagine is a good day- anything that jumps out that I am missing?
