Realistic Pregnant Keto Diet | Stay-at-home Mom Struggles & Heartburn/Acid Reflux (2019)


[Music] [Music] [Music] good morning today is official today one of us being on our own we had kind of a really special circumstance because Weston’s a full-time student but his school the school that he was going to for his master’s program shut down in March and then he started working from home along with me so for the past six ish months we’ve had two parents at home with one it’s been awesome those easy-breezy days have come to an end Weston his back at school he’s turned his ph.d program today and today is his long class day so we will be just the two of us all day long no so I’ve decided these days might be a coffee day for me I didn’t do any coffee and my first pregnancy I’ve enjoyed an occasional cup of coffee this time around ah Wow right now you got to eat your eggs first 2,000 per banana we are going to go to library time this morning which I feel like is just the best thing ever I have a very long list of qualifications for what is the optimum grant activity watch time something indoors because it’s still like 150 degrees everyday here something where he is contained so I don’t necessarily have to like chase them around like regular library timer you think this chat be all done yeah you can’t have more banana until you eat your eggs this boy will only eat fruit all day long if we live and something where I’m still going watching him I hate him with like new caretakers you come in and join me for a very serious conversation uh-uh do you need a time in okay he’s back playing now we’ve been really lucky to always live by family so we’ve never had to go through the process of like finding a babysitter even went like putting him in the nursery at church we’ve been here for a month now and we haven’t gone to try to church because every Sunday it comes and I’m like I don’t want to leave grant in the nursery because at our altar she had been going to nursery since he was six months I know he would get used to it and it would be fine but I just feel bad about it every time so I still like to do things with him where I’m the one watching him but I still have the freedom to like relax a little bit more are you so silly that’s probably kind of yucky when it comes to soon that’s not organized like a splash pad or like the mall play a place where there’s like a large range of age of kids and there’s always someone like not being watched I hate having to field other people’s children it’s like so uncomfortable I don’t want to have to talk to your kid but also like stop running after mine trying to pinch him it’s hard like finding activities that are fun for him and for me is a tough it’s a tough equations anyone has any suggestions I haven’t thought of please come into him below I also would love a mom friend I don’t have any local friends here I mean we just moved but my mom was pretty much my only friend when we were in Tucson before I have some great friends that I talked to on the phone and get to see you know a couple times a year but it would be really nice to have someone to like go and do something with well sometime but I’m pretty introverted and I like don’t want to put myself out there it’s just really freaking hard to make adult friends so like signing up to go to a moms group or like just striking up a conversation and introducing myself to someone I know it’s what I got to do though any mom friend advice would be greatly appreciated as well I’m just having a bulletproof coffee this morning I might have some grants eggs and sausage before we go if I get hungry and we will see where the day goes who wants that sweet sweet library time is oh are for lunch grant and I are going to share this pork chop I browned it in the pan and then cooked it the rest away in the instant pot so it turned out really nice and I like to top it with some sour cream mixed with a little bit of a one hopefully grant will eat some of this I’ll probably have some more lunch once he goes down for his nap nap time because we’ve been having such a hard time putting him down for naps the way that Weston has been doing it that seemed to finally work is he’ll go and lay down in grants new toddler bed and then we have to just turn off the TV all pretend to nap on the couch or I’ll actually nap on the couch and then eventually grant will just come in and lay down with you in the toddler bed once he’s asleep you can like sneak your way out but because Weston’s been home Weston’s been doing it I was telling him like I don’t like this approach because like I don’t want to lay in the toddler bed for a half-hour I didn’t want to just close him in there and let him cry it out either because when that happens he falls asleep like in his little tepee area or he’ll fall asleep like right behind the door and then I’m afraid he won’t sleep as long if he’s not in his bed but if you try to transfer him sometimes he wakes up so it seemed like the safest bet to try to lay down with him let me tell you like down at a toddler bed at 8 months pregnant is not comfortable finally came in he fell asleep next to me and then I would like move a little bit to try to get up and he would wake up and he would see me and so I would just like pretend to be asleep again and I just kept doing that over and over until I like slowly worked my way around him and out of the bed he’s asleep now and I’m going to make the most use of this time and get a ton of work done as well as my nutrition coaching and all this YouTube type business stuff I actually work for a digital marketing company and I work from home for them and things have been pretty quiet during our move and while Weston was off and now of course it goes back to school and it just feels like when it rains it pours I have like a lot of projects on my plate I’m super super thankful for this nap time I’m going to eat this keto peanut butter cookie and they turn out so good so I’ll link that recipe down below I’m going to try to ignore my desire to nap and my fully unmade bed back there still and get as much work done and these hopefully a couple of hours that I can baby birds huh sure and see yeah yeah you can get more nor book there’s grant there he is giving kisses give me kisses to the camera grant just woke up so sweet and he just came out into the living room and grabbed my hand and wanted me to come read books so that’s what we did yes that mama what’s that one groovy Joe you got it dude hey dog that’s right can you show us your room I thought I’d show you guys what we did in here to make this a little bit more of a toddler room for grant so this is all the same bedding the same mattress and everything that we had in his crib I got this toddler bed frame for $20 on let go and just transferred everything into there so that’s where he sleeps now put some nice soft blankets on there when he goes down for naps and things and then in our old house we had a cuddle corner but for his room this time I got this little teepee and we put his stuffed bear and pillows and all the cuddly things in there and it’s a good place for him to kind of calm down so I talked about having a time in earlier if he is hitting or doing something else he’s not supposed to you will come and we’ll sit in here and a lot of times he’ll dive in there with bear bear to cuddle and kind of make himself feel better so it’s pretty cute so if that stuff and then we have this arm wall over here that’s where he gets all of his books out of and then all of his clothes are down here I still need to hang his name up here and then we have some dinosaurs that are 3d printed that we’ll put on this wall but I like to keep things pretty minimalist in here so it’s not much of a playroom it’s more just for sleep and wind down and storytime Mia get out of here okay he came out and turned on the record player [Music] grants eating his favorite snack of apples now we’ve got just two hours a little less than two hours till dad should be home I think we might do a little bit of water play outside this right here is why it’s hard to do anything outside and that unhealthy or sensitive refers to the air quality because we don’t have great air quality here in Phoenix apparently it’s so hard it doesn’t feel fair to keep this boy cooped up inside all day so we try to find alternative this gives me a little opportunity to sit underneath the misters and do a little bit of breeding enjoy the fresh air with poor air quality I’ve been absolutely loving my Kindle for checking out books from the library because if I put me on hold it just automatically checks it out for me when it’s ready and automatically returns it for me but it’s up so I don’t have to worry about like late fees or not getting the library in time I’ve been reading a book called the humans and it’s really good I like stayed up late last night reading it so I’ll enjoy this for as long as that full of water [Applause] [Applause] [Music] 20 made an electrolyte drink pressure sure I’ll like my favorite one here down below oneself looking at yourself are we going for dinner this is a low carb carb balanced tortilla workout – six grams net carbs this is some steak that I clicked up there day it was just season two assault so I put a little bit of cumin and chili and garlic powder on it to make it a little bit more like he chili here we’ve got some red peppers and onions it’s gonna go on top and then I like mine with cheese and sour cream here is my finished product hey I got a little bit like plain staked out after my carnivore experience so this has been a nice way to like use our steak and still get that protein in let’s switch it up a little bit and keeping it keto just a little bit more dirty keto with the use of those low-carb tortillas Westen’s a fan – it’s a nice family-friendly keto dinner grant and I are sharing a post meal kombucha a very filling dinner I think there’s still room for dessert so I’ll show you that in a bit you have more oh very good and for dessert you helped me make that yesterday didn’t you so I am going to cut us a slice of that and that will conclude this keto fillet of eating and that cheesecake is another recipe that turned out really well so I’ll link that one down below one of you actually a few of you had asked if I’m gelling with acid reflux through this keto pregnancy and the answer unfortunately is yes that is the biggest pregnancy complaint that I have actually and I had it really bad through grants pregnancy to where I would stop eating it like 4 p.m. to try to digest all my food didn’t matter what I ate it would get so bad that it would make me throw up super painful and I had a really hard time sleeping towards the end of my pregnancy because of it it has been better this time around but I did start to get it again in my third trimester I think just because baby’s getting bigger and all that relax and is flowing through me it doesn’t seem no matter what I eat it happens when I’m keto it happened through my week while I was carnivore and it only really strikes when I’m laying down so when I go to bed but a few things that do help is eating a little bit earlier and the evenings are stopping eating sooner and then going for an evening walk which we will do after our cheesecake tonight so it is almost 7 o’clock now we’re waiting for the Sun to go down before we go on that walk and that should give me a good amount of time for my food to hopefully digest before I’m laying down and hopefully avoiding some of that acid reflux where’s the car stay [Music] ready [Music]
