    Head battered with all the info on drugs , dates and scan but overall a little excited and nervous .

    I hope all goes well for you and good luck with everything xx

  • Hi Crazy_cat. I know it’s difficult, but you are doing well so far. Just thought I would respond re “what to eat” and hope it helps. I have listed some of the “good” things to have: Carbohydrates - Wholegrain bread and wholemeal pasta, oatmeal, brown rice. All fresh vegetables especially raw or steamed. Over boiling rids them of vitamins and minerals, pineapple juice, apricots, potatoes, all fruit and honey, beans, chickpeas and lentils. Protein - Organic meat if possible, poultry, fish, Milk and hard cheese, nuts and seeds. Fat - Extra virgin olive oil and sunflower oil, avocado and peanut butter, mackerel, sardines, nuts (especially Brazil and walnuts), seeds, sweet corn and sweet potatoes. The things to avoid are too much sugar, processed foods, ready meals, butter, ice cream etc. A little is OK, but not all the time. Drink plenty of water and only a little tea and coffee if feeling deprived. No alcohol and no smoking. Oh and don’t forget the Folic Acid! Hope this helps and all the best with the rest of the cycle.
