Younguns

Sons are a heritage from the Lord,
children are a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior

are the sons born in one’s youth.

Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127:3-5

  1. sticking in my grand-maternal oar. I learned while attending classes with Ces about Dr. Brewer’s pregnancy diet.

    In short — He had a fantastic record of having completely eliminated preeclampsia/toxemia from his patients. Yes, you read that right. COMPLETELY ELIMINAITED! Through diet. The diet as was explained on the video we watched was very simple to comprehend — though it required some effort to do. It was simply 100 grams of protein per day. [minimum of 80 grams] After that: eat to hunger, drink to thirst, salt to taste.

  2. uh — no.

    100 grams is quite a bit and has to become priority thinking. I know it was very hard for Ces.

    The website has examples and equivalents for non-meat eaters.

  3. Kyle – the non-pregnancy recommendation for protein is 50-60 grams. I was able to get that, with making a specific effort (meaning, more than I did before I was pregnant) to try to get protein. It’s just that itcan take a while to add up. Fortunately, if you can get actual meat in fairly often, (which I couldn’t, sadly) it goes quicker. Here’s a good list of high protein foods and their amounts:

    And some fast food places, like Arby’s and Panera (but wait, you don’t have Panera, do you…) have healthy foods that have high protein. (The turkey ranch wrap at Arby’s is good.. 49 g protein buuuut kind of high in calories…)
