Hi! I just found out I'm pregnant with baby #3 which came at a surprise. I have a almost 3 year old and a 15 month old as well so I will be busy. Anyway, as happy as I am to have another baby I'm struggling with being pregnant again. I have had a lot of swelling during both of my pregnancies. I have just started eating mostly paleo after doing a whole30 and was planning on continuing but my food aversions are strong and all I want is some gluten free toast or fruit or a smoothie. I've been able to eat some meat and eggs but not as many vegetables.
My question is how has swelling been for people who have eaten pale vs non-paleo with other pregnancies. I think if I heard some encouraging stories it would be enough to continue but I'm fighting some "it might not make a difference anyway" thoughts. I'm also hoping to not gain as much weight. I was just about back to my size before I was pregnant with my son but I have kept 5-15lb on with both of my other pregnancies so I have some work to do when I'm done.
