I decided to give this blog thing a try. Let me warn you, though, that I am very new to this and I’m not always great with technology. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a board-certified OB/Gyn physician practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’ve also been living the Paleo/Primal Blueprint lifestyle since March 2012. And now, I’m pregnant with my first child.
I thought I’d start this as a journal of sorts, to post my thoughts and observations though my pregnancy. I figured that I’d be able to give a unique perspective given my profession and Paleo lifestyle. Hopefully there are others out there who will find reading this helpful. Although I can attest to my certifications as an OB/Gyn physician, I am by no means an expert on the Paleo lifestyle in pregnancy. And in many ways, I’m just like every other woman going through pregnancy for the first time (I just have a better idea of what to expect than most).
After 3 1/2 weeks of what seemed like eternity, from when we first found out I was pregnant to my first appointment, we finally got confirmation that I have a viable embryo!
