Hi. I have been on the 5:2 diet for about 3 years now though this is my first time on this forum. I love the diet and have successfully reduced my BMI from 32 (obese) to 27 (overweight). I have been plateaued for the last year or so, but am happy with my new body and planned to remain on the diet indefinitely to maintain the loss. But a wrench just got thrown in the system. Yesterday I learned I am pregnant. It was not a planned pregnancy, as hubby and I thought we were ‘done’. As such I have not thought about how I would change the diet for pregnancy. My hubby thinks I should abandon IF for now. That may be the best for the baby but I am wondering if there are perhaps more pregnancy friendly versions out there I can try? Like maybe increase the fast day calorie count or something? I just feel like it will be so much harder to start again after a 9 month break. Anyone have experience with this or relevant medical knowledge?
In the FAQs section it states that pregnant or breastfeeding women should not fast.

It is safe to say that you are pregnant with a fever? Assuming this is the case, you’re normally going to stress if your child will be alright.
Be that as it may, before you freeze, take a full breath. Call your specialist and inquire as to whether you should take acetaminophen (Tylenol) to bring down the fever.
The following vital advance is revealing the reason for the fever. A fever amid pregnancy is regularly a side effect of a hidden condition that could conceivably be hurtful to your developing infant.
