So I have been trying to eat healthier since finding out I was pregnant. Lately, I have been adding more raw vegetables, such as broccoli and carrots along with salads. I ate broccoli several times, in fact every day the first week I found out, without incident. However, something happened last night. I am not sure whether it was due to the broccoli being a week old, having too much of it recently, or just a pregnancy reflex, but after a few bites in, I was gagging on the broccoli. It wasn't crisp - slightly soft. So I threw the broccoli out, and I thought that was the end of it.
Well at 2 AM, I had cramping and gas pains that lasted for approximately an hour. I couldn't sleep, and of course, the cramping had me concerned. Argh, I think it will be a little while before I consume broccoli again.
