Most likely at some point in your pregnancy you will be told your blood type. If not then you can take a test at home to determine "your type." After reading this post on GOOP and hearing a lot about The Blood Type diet I thought it would be interesting to investigate and share my findings. Sometimes really small changes in our diets can make a huge difference in how we feel. The theory, developed by Peter D'Adamo, is that we all have a different genetic makeup and through personalized nutrition based on blood type we can naturally fight disease and feel as great as possible! The blood type diet is also supposed to boost fertility and help you have an even healthier pregnancy. For lots more info you can check out Eat Right 4 Your Blood Typehere.
Exercise: Type O's need to burn a lot of energy, so high impact aerobics, circuit training, activities that get their heart rate going with quick bursts of energy are really effective.
Does any of this ring true for you? Do you recognize certain foods that don't sit well with you on the "avoid" list? I think it's really interesting. I'm Type O and it makes sense that I thrive on a low carb, high vegetable/protein diet. I think that wheat should be avoided for most diets and that dairy should be eaten in moderation, but I think it would be a neat experiment to change things up a little bit to get in line with your blood type and see how you feel!
