So, you don’t have a last period date to go on, or you’re cycles are irregular enough to not know which end is up. How do you know how pregnant you are? Is ultrasound the last resort, the only way? For so many women it is, and many doctors insist on routine ultrasound when there isn’t a period date to go on. But for those opposed to ultrasound (or for those just wanting that first pregnancy challenge) there is another way.
Nutrition is the most important factor in predicting how well a pregnancy will go, and how both you and your baby will fare. This may seem obvious, but I have lived the medical mainstream pregnancy and I can tell you (or maybe you can tell me!) that this is not common knowledge in that world.
Now, in much of the slightly alternative pregnancy/birthing world, that is not the case. In my first pregnancy (which was OB-hospital based) not one person, ever, who was caring for me, asked what I put in my mouth on a daily basis.
