Off to a good start!

So Mr Naked Baby and I are on the let's try for baby no 2 bandwagon. We never really tried not to get pregnant after Kahu, so as his 3rd birthday looms, and no baby no. 2 is not here, I think we need to start getting serious.

I suffer from Polycystic ovary syndrome and Endometriosis, which means getting pregnant is not an easy task. After years of seeing specialists my stepmum found a hormone specialist who proscribed some progesterone cream and a diet (ah how I hate diets!)

Anyway 12 months later Kahu was under construction and 9 months later he made his grand appearance!

So as hubby reminded me the diet was essential I have bitten the bullet and am 3 weeks in! I feel more energetic and generally happier all round.

The diet consists of cutting all estrogen causing foods (as I produce WAY too much). So goodbye wheat, rice, potatoes, sugar, banana's, grapes.... Oh how I loved you all.

Breakfast had always been my downfall. I love nothing better than a slice of toast smothered in butter and honey. I have made myself a list of 3 easy breakfasts which I rotate and you know what I am loving it and not even missing the toast.

I am loving the fresh fruit ie blueberries, apples, pears etc with some yummy natural yoghurt, topped with pumpkin seeds and cinnamon!

Stay tuned as I share our journey with you!
