    AS it was still fairly early days it's fine to just regroup and try for the first egg. When you feel up to it go back on diet and exercise and then try to catch the first egg, either by using OPK or doing e4d.

    (although that having been said, keep in mind that it is possible to have heavy bleeding and remain pregnant the entire time so you may want to wait for neg. pregnancy test before going all in)
    I was about 7 weeks. Iím doing a blood test tomorrow to see if my HCG levels are falling, Iím pretty sure they are. I found out I was pregnant about 3 weeks ago and never really changed my diet (just dropped caffeine and had red meat maybe 2-3 times over 3 weeks) but I stopped exercising. Do you think itís ok if I start exercising again now? Wonít the 3 week break compromise my sway? I assume I will ovulate in about 2 weeks, is that right? Or does it take longer after miscarriage?

    Yes it's fine to exercise now if you feel up to it.

    Your ovulation will probably be delayed a bit. Anything is possible, but don't count on 14 days later ovulating.

    3 weeks won't matter, remember, this is about being depleted and being pregnant then having a loss is still depleting.

    Thank you, one last question- with the stress of a miscarriage, blood loss etc my BMI is down to 18.7! What would you suggest food wise? How many eggs a week? Salmon? I need to make sure I eat enough fat to ovulate but not overdo it and get out of pink territory.

    Salmon or tuna 2x a week.

    As many eggs as you can stand but NOT in lieu of meat/dairy.

    I'd def. recommend full fat dairy, butter, coconut oil, red meat (beef better than pork).

    I thought the big point of a pink diet is to get off red meat/animal protein? I also read just the other day that many women who were successful in their sways (including you) gave up dairy to get your girls? Do you think I should skip breakfast or just do 14-15 hr fasting in my case?

    That was a temporary suggestion for a couple weeks to stabilize the weight loss and help you recover. Right here and now you are wasting away to nothing and we need to give you an influx of nutrients and fat to stop this weight loss or you won't ovulate for a really long time.

    Over time, please follow my standard recommendation of 1-2 servings of salmon/red meat per week (though you can drop this in a couple weeks if you'd like) 4-6 eggs per week and a serving of full fat dairy a day. If you really can't do that, then use the coconut oil option.

    I did not totally give up dairy. I just had LESS dairy (as did my husband) We have always been massive dairy eaters so "less dairy" for us is probably what most people do on the LE Diet anyway (1-3 servings a day) I had full fat milk in my coffee and cheese and butter. My BMI was also much higher than yours and I hadn't just had a miscarriage. I have EVERYONE on the alternate diets using exclusively full fat dairy and they get great results so I promise, dairy within limits does not wreck a sway.

    Did you stop them suddenly?? Please wean off gradually instead.

    1200-1600 mcg folate

    Yes, please take iron 18-60 mg (just whatever you can find in that range, don't get the ones that come in 100's of mg as they are really hard on the stomach and not well absorbed anyway) daily for the next 3 weeks then reduce to 3x a week from there on in.

    And by the way, no, getting off red meat is NOT the big point of the pink diet. Never has been. It is limits that matter. People can and do have red meat when they need to and still get girls.

    Re fasting, it's hours of fasting somewhere between 12-16 and since you're dropping weight I'd go to 12 hours max for a week or two till this stabilizes.

    Do you think I should start taking CoQ10? Iím 37 approaching 38, but with the last 2 pregnancies I conceived on the first go. Iíve been taking folate and iron for the past week and gradually weaning off prenatals.
