What the Dr's tell me, stop breast feeding, or you can go on this "candida diet". Having discussed this with my midwife very early in this pregnancy (cause I really want to breastfeed this baby a whole year) she recommended that I start the candida diet 6 weeks before my due date. I have about 11 weeks before I reach my due date, but I've been sick for weeks. So, after talking to my husband I decided to go ahead and start the diet earlier than planned. I had planned on starting in early Oct.
So, what are symptoms for yeast? It can be a wide variety of things. For me, I get nauseated and feel like I have the flu, only it's my bones that ache, not my skin. For some it's actual yeast infections but can range to constant headaches and much more.
This kinda kills my no spending challange as I was trying only to spend $50 this month in groceries.....I've almost spent that already and we just started! But, my health is way more important.
When you see some funky food combo's these next few weeks you'll know why. After three weeks I can start adding some more regular foods in like grains and fruits. Yep, no fruit for 3 weeks, except green apples and blueberries, and even then only one serving a day!
