   Posted 6/16/2008 5:47 AM (GMT -7)'s been a while since I've posted here..I've had my baby, she was born a couple of weeks early (which was fine with me) and we are both doing well!! Since being 6 weeks pregnant I've had an aversion to meat and have stopped eating it. I was hoping that after her birth I would ask for a big mac but that hasn't been the case!! It's been a month since her birth and I still can't stand the sight of meat and continue to be a vegetarian. I am not taking good care of my self by supplementing my diet with vitamins, etc but I think it's time I start. I wanted to know if there are any other vegetarians out there and if they could recommend different supplements, etc. I am not vegan as I still have milk, eggs, etc just no meat or fish. Thanks so much!!

I am not a Vegetarian but I did find a website that has some supplements and good prices. Maybe you can find something there.

Congrats on the new Baby!!!

I've been a vegetarian for 15 years. I only take a regular multivitamin. You really can have a healthy vegetarian diet and not need supplements, if you just make sure and eat a wide variety of things. I stick to a vegan diet, so I don't eat any dairy products. But if you are going to eat dairy products you can get protein and calcuim from cheese and yogurt and if you eat lots of beans, tofu and leafy greens, you'll get plenty of iron and protein. I make sure and eat flax so I can get the important Omaga 3 fatty acids.

I think it's great that you're exploring a vegetarian diet :)

Thank you both...I haven't really had a choice regarding the vegetariand diet, every time I eat meat, I vomit it up so I've had to stop eating it. At first it was the preganancy but now I guess I've gone so long with out eating eat, my body just doesnt like it any more. Even just looking at it makes me sick..

I've been a vegetarian since 1996, although my husband and I have periodically added to the foods we eat. Except for a multivitamin, I've never taken supplements of any kind. I was anemic for a while and had to have IV iron infusions, but I haven't had any problems for the past few years.

Initially, we were vegans; then we added in nonfat dairy (since I don't appear to be lactose intolerant) and Eggbeaters; and eventually, after several years, we added seafood. But I haven't had red meat or poultry of any kind in 12 years. The only times my diet got difficult involved the four months when my (incompetent) GI doctor thought I also had celiac disease--and the 3 years that I was on a low-fiber/low-residue diet (when I pretty much ate just starches and dairy and fish, and my whole diet went to hell). Otherwise, I function fine--although I have to avoid all the fruit-and-veg things that give Crohn's people problems (like peels and husks and seeds).
