  • 9:12 bless you for bringing up the importance of active folate. It should go hand-in-hand with talk of folate supplementation and is so often overlooked or unknown to professionals. Bravo!!!

  • When I concieved my son I was already overweight but I didn’t feel too bad about my body as I could still fit into trendy clothes and didn’t look awful. Over the course of pregnancy I gained roughly 40lbs and when I gave birth 14lbs immediately came off but in the days and weeks that followed nothing else did because the remainder was body fat. I gained it where it always goes, my face, boobs, back, arms and stomach. I looked like an inflated candy apple. I went from a European size 44 or 46 to a size 48. Where I live all the trendy clothes shops stop at an XL which is what I fit into when I’m not pregnant. I went shopping in New Yorker for some outfits and nothing fitted me. I resigned myself to men’s Nike shirts and black leggings until the weight came off and I counted 2,000 calories a day. The weight came off in about 2 months (I was also breastfeeding). I am still breastfeeding my 20 month old and have just found out I’m pregnant again. This time I’m counting calories and don’t eat more than 2,300 a day. I try and stick to 2,000 and I have cut out energy drinks and candy which I consumed all throughout my last pregnancy. I’m a big eater and generally eat more than my husband when I’m not paying attention to my diet. I’ll probably lose weight but at least I won’t gain any.

  • Thank you for this video. I feel awful for being sick during the first trimester. I’m 16 weeks right now finally eating 3 full meals and snacks(mostly fruits) I CANNOT stand meat but we’ll hopefully get there.

  • Oh thank you thank you for making this! So much good info… I am 6 weeks with my second child and first pregnancy was tough cause I had horrible GERD symptoms and threw up all of the time so nutrition is so important to me for this one… For my sake and baby’s! ��������

  • Do you think you can also absorb some magnesium by adding Epsom salts to a bath? With some YL oils, of course:) My Restless Leg Syndrome is much better now that I’m supplementing with magnesium, taking Epsom salt baths, and going to my chiropractor:)

  • I loved this video and I wish I would have found it sooner! I’m 21 weeks pregnant today but it’s never too late to start getting all those proper vitamins and minerals right??
    Also natural calm will be my life saver! Leg cramps are no joke!

  • Great video, +Becca Bristow!!
    I have persistent constipation for most of my life and it has worsened from the prenatal vitamins ( iron and calcium, I’m guessing). Do you have any suggestions for immediate and continuous relief? My concern is the build up of estrogens in the body that should be excreted.

  • You should not and never eat liver when pregnant. This is bad information. In fact liver is one of the foods listed unsafe for pregnancy at any stage.

  • I’m on my first trimester and sometimes it can be hard to eat anything luckily I haven’t thrown up but I’m just nauseous all day and thinking about certain food gross me out. I’ve seen your video on my feed but every time I looked at the photo it made me nauseous! Lol I can’t wait till this feeling goes away

  • As far as the weight gain, you don’t have to gain a single pound during pregnancy. I get your point may be to help others not to stress about it if they do gain weight and to encourage others not to gain excess weight, but due to my weight at the time, my doctor wanted for me not to gain any weight. She didn’t suggest that I loose any but she definitely encouraged me not to gain and I didn’t. I did not gain one pound in 9 months. Nothing changed with my diet or exercise except an increase in my water intake.

  • Hi, I am a little worried. I started my pregnancy at 142, I am currently 18 weeks and I am 161. I don’t know what I am doing wrong, I sometimes eat “bad” like potatoes chips or a slice of pizza but is not all the time and my sister and my doctor are saying I have gained to much and I think that stress is making me gain more. I just don’t know what to do. I am having twins by the way

  • Hi! Very informative video thank you so much! I ordered the Ritual prenatal vitamins and one of the ingredients is “Methylated 4th generation Folate”. Is this the same as methylated hydra folate? (I think that’s what you said)

  • I just came across your channel a few months ago, and I have to say it has quickly became my favorite! I absolutely love all of the information that you include in your videos, especially since I am pregnant at the moment. I know I’ll continue watching your videos even after pregnancy, because I love nerding out on nutrition info!

  • Thank you for touching on the active folate vs folic acid!! Not enough people know about this and it’s SO important!! I take a separate methyl folate to help my body absorb it best ����

  • Hi Becca thank you for the infomative video, you’re more informative than my doctor ☺️����. Can you make a healthy cooking video about how to raise HB (hemoglobin red blood cells)? I’m currently pregnant 5 months and my HB dropped to 8,7…. I think it’s also important not just for pregnant women but for all people who has anemia…. thank you:)

  • Love your videos Becca! Been following along on your pregnancy journey. So exciting! I’m 15 weeks and even though I’m a dietitian too definitely have some things to brush up on in terms of pregnancy specific nutritrion. loved this one. Thanks for sharing!

  • Great video so informative as usual! Not pregnant nor trying to be anytime soon but I think it’s interesting in general as well. P.S if you wanted to ever make an hour long video about anything you could count on me to watch lol P.P.S the outro music made me laugh idk why ��

  • I am hypoglycemic and borderline diabetic due to my PCOS. Im 4 1/2 months pregnant and my pre pregnancy weight wss 208. Im now at 175. So a loss of 33 lbs. I stopped losing for a few weeks but now losing again even though I havent been doing anything differently. I feel like im so pressured to gain and ive been eating. Any tips?

  • Hi Becca!

    Can you do a video on what supplements/vitamins you take during and to prepare for pregnancy? Love your videos! ❤️ I’m also a Young Living member and love my oils!

  • I am type 1 diabetic and I’ve never been pregnant but I agree with you Becca on eating healthy to avoid/ease gestational diabetes. Diet helps me a lot in managing my disease along with exercise and insulin. I can only imagine eating right would help the pregnancy as well.

  • I opted to not take the glucose test due to the chemicals in the nasty drink they provide. I then had to document my blood sugar 4 times a day for two weeks. It was the biggest eye opener to me. It was amazing what spiked my sugar.

  • I almost died from anorexia back in 2005 and the book “Intuitive Eating” saved my life. Our dietician in the treatment facility was a big believer in that concept and it literally changed my entire relationship with food. I have been in recovery for almost 13 years. I sing its praises from the rooftops and encourage my friends and family to do the same!

  • I think I eat ok to be pregnant but I also think i need to eat better I really haven’t even gain much weight while pregnant im just worried about getting to fat while pregnant.��‍♀️

  • I am a bit fed up with advise like “eat real food” and balanced diet. What is real food? Is pasta or bread real? I’m pregnant now and my body doesn’t accept fruit and most veg. Most of pregnant women find eating very difficult and general advise just doesn’t help ��

  • I been getting UTI during my pregnancy i been taking Antibiotics because the UTI keeps returning. Is there anything I can do to avoid this from returning? I’m almost done taking my Antibiotics. I’m 31 weeks this week.

  • Just found you! Definitely going to subscribe! What camera do you use? It is amazzing! Also, do you use its microphone or have an aftermarket one? If so, what is it?

  • Preach! I really need to listen to this right now since I was too sick today from some nasty virus and wound up eating McDonald’s.:/ tomorrow back to meal prepping healthy meals for the rest of the week.
