Post subject:  vegan pregnancy

I'm not sure if anyone is still active here. It looks like the last post is pretty old, but I figured I would try. I just found out I am pregnant (about 3 wks); I hesitant to get excited as I know it's still really early. I haven't told anyone except my husband, but I feel like I will get a lot of questions on staying vegan in pregnancy. I've been vegan for 18 years, and I know many moms on here had a vegan pregnancy.

So far, I started taking Deva Prenatal and Deva DHA-EPA. I wish I had started taking them earlier. I started them 2 years ago, but when I didn't get pregnant for a long time, I got sick of taking them and stopped. Just re-started them yesterday. Anything else I should be taking to make sure I'm covered nutritionally? I have "Vegan Pregnancy" by Sayward Rebhal that I bought over 5 years ago (figuring I would get pregnant one day), but I saw reviews saying that a lot of the info is inaccurate. I do have "Vegan for Life," which I bought years ago but haven't finished reading. Any other resources you guys recommend?

Thanks so much!

Have you looked at Ginny Messina's website It is active, which helps when I'm wondering how dated some piece of information might be.

Plus, congratulations! <3
