My labour experience – seriously successful hypnobirthing home birth

I wrote this the day I gave birth. So it was fresh in my mind. It’s pretty detailed so only read it if you’re super interested haha. It also needs to be heavily edited so take it with a grain of salt. Haphazardly written but here goes. So I started getting things that were pretty menstrual crampy Thursday night. Then they paused during the day Friday but I told Andrey he had to cook because I couldn’t manage to do Read More

Baby!!

I’ve been gone from the blog for over a month because I had a baby!! It’s been crazy and exhausting and wonderful. Elizabeth Scarlett Peterson Korikova everyone ( a pic from a couple of days old): She was born August 6, at 3:21 am. 7lbs 6 oz with a full head of hair. Me being extremely thrilled not to be pregnant anymore (1 week postpartum): A month old baby!!:   I haven’t been on my computer since before August 6, Read More

Pregnancy and life update – Mid July (engagement!)

(I updated the chicken broth recipe and the chicken wing recipe. They’re actually even easier now!) I got engaged!!! Andrey was amazing. He kept trying to do something big but I’m soooo pregnant and not into excitement at all. I tried to explain that hiding under my covers is exciting enough haha. He brought me out on a boat on Canada day as a surprise. It was really sweet and great planning but it looked like it was going to pour. Can’t Read More

Political correctness leaching its way into my Facebook mom’s group

I figure most of the people who come to this blog find out about it though my dad, Jordan Peterson. I’m happy about that, I don’t care how people get here, I just want them to know what kind of problems their diet is potentially causing. I generally avoid most of my dads “controversy” because I honestly think there are more important things for me to focus on. Mainly health. I also believe that mental illness accounts for a lot Read More

Pregnancy update – Week 32

Everything’s going great! Now that I’m not eating anything with sugar, my mood is good, no arthritis, seems pretty good. I’m starting to get pretty big. Getting around is getting weird. And I have to pee quite a bit.. Less than 2 months now until I have a child. So that’s incredibly weird. I still can’t believe that I can grow one inside of me… You’d think humans wouldn’t be phased by that but it’s still weird. My ankles have Read More

New theory

Brace yourselves, this is a long one. For the last – almost 2 years, wow – I’ve been randomly cutting out foods and listening hard to my body’s response. Most of the reactions have been seemingly random. Some have been obvious looking back but not obvious at the time. This has been such a random and confusing process. My dad is doing the same thing as me as he seems to have a similar problem. I’ve been asked “how does this make Read More

Pregnancy update

So I AM starting to feel better (yayyyyyyy). I reacted to the lactose in my antihistamines but it’s been 18 days since I’ve taken them and I’m finally starting to feel better. I’m still a bit itchy, and some of my joints are still a bit stiff in the morning. My gums are no longer bleeding, I’m not crying every day, and my arthritis is better than it was in the last couple of weeks. In another 10 days I’ll Read More

Feeling better again

So after removing fish and the few fruit I could tolerate, my arthritis is going away, I’m less itchy again and my mood is improving. Also my face isn’t as puffy which is always nice. Being restricted in what you eat is difficult, but it’s especially difficult when you feel miserable, you’re hungry, AND you have to cook. If you feel good, cooking doesn’t seem like as big a deal. I had my IgG antibodies tested again. The antibody levels are slowly going down Read More

This diet is hard.

So a couple of weeks ago I realized I was reacting to fish. I’ve gotten much more sensitive since the pregnancy, and haven’t been able to keep my symptoms under control. They’re NOTHING like they used to be, but they’re still not fun. I’m pretty arthritic in the morning (I can’t really use my hands for the first couple of hours), and my big toe is really bugging me. Then there’s the fact I’m itchy, weepy, and generally unhappy. Again, Read More

Pregnancy woes SOLVED

Turns out I was wrong about all of the following: “So I was beginning to worry that being pregnant was just going to be full of arthritis and depression and skin problems. As soon as I get my health under control, pregnancy arrives and smacks me down. BUT I figured it out. Fuck you world, but good effort there. When I got pregnant I suddenly got more sensitive. I started reacting to tiny amounts of things in pills, a sip Read More
