    Thinking about it ( i'm no doctor mind, so you'd better check) but they always say eat a varied diet and so the doc may say hold off on the Atkins thingy.
    Mind you , u never know!

    now that is lovely news!

    i personally can't see why atkins should be bad for baby, all those veg's and lots of body building protein, what could be better?

    heres to a comy pregnancy and a happy healthy baby!

    Hi jools. Congratulations that is amazing news:D i think that its often a bit of a surprise but still wonderful:)
    Unfortunately atkins is specifically not recommended in pregnancy because no one has done any studies. However, i imagine that ensuring you dont have any sugar and minimise the extra bread and carbs would be a good thing. I wish i had known that in pregnancy! Then again for the first three months i lived on hot cross buns as that was all i could bear to eat - and lost 3kg:eek:

    Good luck and let us know how you get on
    Xxx

    Congratulations. A baby is always a good thing. :)

    I personally wouldn't follow any diet while pregnant and would imagine the baby would need all kinds of nutrients. See your doctor though. Plus there will be all those cravings lol.
