Hi! I am new to posting on here. I am in school and am doing a research paper for a final on the effects of a plant based diet during pregnancy and on infants. If you ate a plant based diet {vegan or vegetarian} during pregnancy/ and fed a plant based diet to your infant, would you mind filling out a quick survey i made? I would really appreciate it!!

I'm sure people will be happy to help you, but since you've never posted here before would you please tell us a bit about yourself - what class is this for? what are you studying in school? are you vegan yourself? what is the purpose of this survey?

Sure! Sorry about the vagueness....
I am a human services major. I have been vegan for five years. I am 27, live in the Boston area, and like eating raspberries and petting dogs.The survey is for an early childhood development class. The research i am doing is comparing babies that were fed plant based diets during conception and infancy and how their health and development compares to that of infants that have been fed an omnivorous diet.

Did you have calf cramps during pregnancy?
Nope.

Did you take any vitamins during pregnancy and if so what kinds?
I took a vegetarian prenatal that I'm blanking on the name of (not the Deva, not the Rainbow Light, something else) and I also took algae based DHA.

How were your magnesium levels during pregnancy?
I don't recall having them tested, but I assume they were normal.

Did you smoke during pregnancy?
Nope.

Did you drink alcohol during pregnancy?
Nope.

Did you exercise consistently prior to getting pregnant?
Yup.

How much weight did you gain during your pregnancy?
55 lbs.

On a scale of 1- 10, how were fatigued were you during pregnancy?
I had hyperemesis in the first 20 weeks and would rate those weeks about an 8. I felt great from weeks 20-34ish and would rate those about a 1. The last 7 weeks were a downhill slide and I'd rate them about a 6.

So averaging that out, I guess it was about a 5 across the whole pregnancy.

One a scale of 1-10
What would you say your energy level was during pregnancy?

Again, really varied at different points of my pregnancy. Probably about a 5 overall.


What did your baby weigh at birth?

9 lbs

When did your baby say its first word?
10 months

When did your baby take its first step?
10 months

How many naps did your baby take a day and for how long?
At 14 months old, he's doing two naps a day. One's usually about an hour, the other's usually about 40 minutes. When he was younger, he napped more.

Was your baby eating most foods you gave him or her?
He mostly eats breastmilk at 14 months old, but he'll try basically anything. He just doesn't usually want more than about two bites of any given solid food.

What age did your baby start sleeping through the night?
Ha ha ha ha ha.

On a good night, he wakes up twice in 10 or 11 hours.
