Going vegan during pregnancy
I have one big and important question and can't find an answer.
What if became vegan at 22 weeks pregnant?
I was vegetarian, I was raw vegan as well but in pregnancy everything starts to change! I start to eat meat, milk products, other unhealthy food, like fast food and now I just woke up and I feel so guilty about that.
I'm eating food which I know what I will never give to my baby or bigger child. So If I will start everything again?

Dear Vegan Momma,
I am currently a little over four months pregnant and strongly considering a vegan diet. For the past few years, I have been following a vegetarian or pescetarian diet. I was vegan for a few months a couple of years ago, but needed more information and did not stick with it. I have a few dilemnas:
In your opinion, is going vegan now, as long as I am super careful, a valid option? Or is it best to wait until my baby is born, or even following breast feeding?
What is your approach to eating with a partner who is not at all vegetarian? He is open to a lot, but I do not like to push vegetarianism on people... I think that the decision always should come from them and what they truly feel is best. But I do not want our different eating habits to affect our closeness.
Any other information that you have would be wonderful
Thank you for taking the time to read and respond to my questions!
