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!


  1. How exciting. Good luck!!! Maybe we'll get pregnant at the same time what fun!!!

  2. That would be very cool! Are you pregnant now or trying as well?
