Denise’s Story.


This is such wonderful news and I’m thrilled to announce that she has officially entered the second trimester!

If you haven’t read Denise’s complete story, you can find it here.

Denise’s assessments and recommendations are much more detailed than what is in this blog post. Here, I am sharing her most important issues and some random topics. The information that is shared between us is extensive and continual.

For a brief update, I met Denise last August when she won my ‘Biggest Contest Ever’. She and her husband were trying to conceive at the time. Sadly, they achieved pregnancy only to lose that baby in a miscarriage. Since then I have not spoken to Denise. Until now.

We met up last week and I immediately felt the excitement in the air as she told me about her current pregnancy!  She definitely has the pregnancy ‘glow’!  She has been experiencing nausea and food aversions, and all those wonderful things that let a woman know she has a growing baby inside her belly!  Denise has quit drinking coffee, easily because that is one of her aversions.  She also has lost her appetite for meat.  By eliminating all meat from her diet, it is especially important she watch her intake of protein and iron. She needs more of these during pregnancy for herself and her baby.  Luckily, she likes fish and seafood.  By eating fish a few times a week, as well as beans, legumes, eggs, nuts and seeds, she will do well.

I look forward to sharing her prenatal journey with you, as she nears her due date in August.

Please join me in sending warmest wishes and congratulations to Denise and her family!
