Fertility Diet has Taken Hold!

food to get pregnant

It’s hard to believe but I’ve been researching, testing and tweaking for over seven months now in order to find the perfect fertility diet- best food to get pregnant.

I’m there.

  • I have my energy back
  • My digestive system is regular and healthy
  • My acne has completely disappeared
  • I have no more muscle cramps

In short – I feel great!

food to get pregnantThere have been setbacks and long periods of waiting while my system adjusted to the food to get pregnant, but I’ve reached the point where my body is telling me, “Yes!”

Gluten Free

It hasn’t been easy though. Just four weeks ago I was feeling so bad that I went in to see my doctor to make sure there weren’t any serious health issues. He found none and even tested me for gluten intolerance, which came out negative. This wasn’t surprising since the test has to be conducted while on a diet that includes gluten – mine at the time was virtually gluten free.

I listened to my body though, and stepped my diet up to 100% gluten free. This is one of the best decisions I’ve made so far. After following it for three weeks, the bleeding during bowel movements disappeared, my acne cleared up and my muscle cramps disappeared.

Gluten was the last step in my fertility diet but quite possibly the most important one for me.

I still have a big question: What affect is this diet going to have on my long, irregular menstrual cycles- ill they become regular?

I’ll have to wait another few months to see a trend, but given the way my overall health is improving I’m very optimistic. We’ll see how it goes.

Added notes:

Does gluten-free diet increase fertility?

If you have Coeliac Disease, then removing gluten from your diet will improve fertility. If you are not a Coeliac, there is no scientific evidence to support that a gluten free diet will improve your chance of getting pregnant.
