So the good news is that I’m relatively healthy… and that our plans to start trying in May remain intact. But, I do have a plan for the next two months to get my body into optimal health for this pregnancy.
And today is day one of a 28 day liver cleanse. Luckily, the first week you are just preparing your body, so I can slowly over the next 7 days wean myself off caffeine completely. Maybe this will give me the kick I need to drop my daily coffee (or two) before I get pregnant… And, to just improve my eating habits in general.
After the 28 days of that, we’ll be focusing on supporting lung and kidney functions (very important before pregnancy as I hear that growing babies tend to smush all your organs together so it can be hard to breathe). Add to that increasing my intake of a good bacterias in the form of acidophilus and probiotics and reducing my current high stress level, and we should be all set :)
This is starting to feel real.. :)
