I'm new to this forum - and I have a question that didn't seem to fit in anywhere else under the "Fasting" categories.
I'm 7 weeks pregnant, having only found out last week and a regular Wednesday / Friday faster. I have fasted about 3 times during my pregnancy (before I knew I was pregnant). I want to know whether I should attempt to keep fasting - maybe reducing the frequency to once a week or fasting for just breakfast and lunch (sun down the night before to sun down the next day therefore eating dinner).
I remember in my readings (a saint's revelation) seeing something about Mary fasting during her pregnancy - but it was a only a reference to her actual fasting and there was no detail around what her fast was made of or how long it lasted.
I'm Australian - Medjugoreje is not widely known about here and largely (despite hosting world youth day last year) Australia is an increasingly secular society, so I'm not sure my Docor would understand.
My husband doesn't think it's a good idea either, but is unsure.
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions while I pray for an answer?
