Baby Belly Comparison

I took quite a few pictures of myself when I was pregnant with Eliza. So here is my first baby belly comparison post!


13 weeks with Eliza
13 weeks with baby #2

I was about 20lbs heavier when I became pregnant with Eliza. Looking at these pics makes me see how much being vegan changed my body. I miss the lifestyle a lot and will probably go veg again after baby #2 is born.

I realized after writing my meal plan earlier today that i never wrote about when or why I stopped being vegan. It wasn't an easy decision and there were a lot of factors to consider. I am sure I will post about it eventually-maybe sooner rather than later.

I didn't go vegan with my pregnancies, but I was a vegetarian with both. I remember eating lots of cereal and black beans. I craved cereal. Sometimes I would eat it for breakfast and lunch.

Anyways, good luck with your new diet!

You look awesome in both those shots...and yeah, I'd love to hear about why you decided not to do vegan (for now anyways) sometime...I thought you were still doing vegan. :)Oh, and I was just wondering...is it safe to eat a vegan diet when pregnant? Just curious!

you look great! i would also like to know your vegan/non vegan stories. as you know i am trying to be veg a little bit (sometimes when i feel like it), and hearing your pros and cons of doing it would be helpful.

also wondering what the benefits of getting off a vegan diet if ttc or preg would be? i am bringing you skinny bitch bun in the oven so you can check out what they have to say.

Would have loved to be vegan during pregnancy, but the only thing I could eat for a while is mac & cheese... I did do vegetarian, though, but I ate soy.

The smile's the same in both pics!
