Update on life

Hello friends. Sorry I've been MIA lately, but I have a very good reason: MSPI Mama has a bun in the oven -- and I'm not talking about bread! Our third child is due in early May, and we're super excited about it! Our daughter, Libby, can hardly contain herself!

I'm nearing the end of the first trimester and starting to feel better, so I'm hoping to be trying out some new recipes and posting them sooner rather than later. In the meantime, check out my friend Michelle's new website: Intolerant Offspring. She has a ton of recipes for you to try.

One thing that you may be wondering is what I've decided to do regarding the baby's likelihood of having MSPI. The conventional wisdom is that once you have a child with MSPI, chances are any subsequent children will also have it. Some doctors recommend going on the MSPI diet during the last trimester or for even the entire pregnancy. Well, I haven't decided what to do yet, but one thing I know for sure is that I'm not going on the diet until after Christmas! ;)

I hope things are going well for all of you! Take care!

Congratulations! My oldest had MSPI, so I started the diet at week 27 with my 2nd pregnancy (luckily, that was in January - after the holidays). Second daughter's diapers have been testing fine, but she has reflux and eczema, which often go along with MSPI. Not sure if doing the diet longer during pregnancy would have better results???

Thanks for sharing your story, Kimberly!

I am expecting in April and my son who is two had MSPI so I expect the same will happen with my daughter. I felt like the heavens had opened when I found your blog! Thank you for writing and adding recipies! I plan to breastfeed for at least 9 mos. if not not longer. How soon did you start the diet while you were pregnant and have you heard weather boys or girls handle the disorder differently? Thanks again. :) My heart goes out to you!
