Believe me, you won’t have time for cooking and smoothies in the first 6 weeks if you are lucky (6 months if you are less so). I suggest the 1st birthday party as an occasion to serve it – at that point kids still eat everything – during the second year they also start to be picky.

I’m no where near pregnancy but I always thought about pills. 

Speaking of cooking it though, I once came across the video below and was surprised how she cooked hers…like it was any other meat. It was entertaining to say the least.. lol

Ew eww eeewwww really??!! That’s just so wrong! It’s as if you cook & eat your own heart, intestines, lungs, kidney, etc (whatever bodily organs & tissues you have). I thought this was just a joke until I watched the youtube video that PP posted.

I plan on having pills made and smoothies. Even though the research is neither here nor there a lot of people who have done it swear it gives them more energy and helped with ppd. I have a history of clinical depression as well as fibromyalgia and m.e so you know what I will try anything to have higher energy and no depression!! I know it’s gross but I will literally do anything to put me in the best position after birth.

Kinda surprised there are people that still don’t know about this. Not TTC or pregnant but I already know I’ll be leaving it at the hospital. I would be considered more vulnerable for PPD but it’s just not something I’m personally interested in. To each their own though.

Why the hell does anyone want to eat a human organ? There are no health benefits.

What the actual f!? I don’t see eating it being an option hospitals could offer or letting you take it home. Like how do they package it do b they put it ice? Wrap it in butcher paper? Put in a jar? And if they let you do this why don’t they let you take other organs home upon having them removed like I’m just saying an organ preserved in a jar would be a cool Halloween decision. But no I would not eat my leftover organ nope nope nope.

Not even close to TTC, but I would leave it at the hospital. I have heard of people eating it, and I know so many people say that it helps with depression, gives them more energy, loaded with nutrients, sooo good for you, etc etc, but is it? And even if it is, would those not be lost after cooking or processing it anyway? Surely those nutrients can be obtained through veges/fruit/fresh foods, and really, the body doesn’t need a huge whack of nutrients because they will just get pissed out anyway.

It went in the trash at the hospital after the standard analysis. My baby was overcooked by ten days and it was starting to deteriorate and get gritty. Mmmm gritty…tasty.
