Hi everyone

Been feeling really tired this week so not made my return to the gym yet. I know I need to just force myself to get the first session out of the way and then it will be OK.

I've made much more conscious food decisions over the past few weeks but it is hard, especially now the Easter eggs are on the shelves. I was 90.7kg at my booking in on 14th January and I was 90.1 Wednesday just gone so I'm happy with that.

I have my NHS healthy eating appointment in two weeks so am interested to see what that's about.

I'm down from about 86kg to 818.kg, not completely on purpose but I seem to have dropped some weight all of a sudden.

Well done jtr2803, that's really good!

JTR, you're doing really well. I think making conscious good decisions is the biggest part of the battle (and wish I could put my money where my mouth is!). Let us know how the healthy eating appointment goes, I need all the tips I can get.

Minties, that's a massive drop. Do you think you've been losing some of the fluid you retained? I went up about 3kg almost instantly with my BFP due to fluid.

Me, I've just found out that the baby is in fact babies -- twins! It means that being careful with my weight is even more important. I've dropped just under a pound in the past week, which I'm fine with. So long as the scales is going the right direction in the 1st Tri I'm happy.

Probably is fluid, but I haven't noticed much fluid retention since I started low carb eating in Jan 2015.

Twins wow congrats! Won't you have MORE of a weight gain allowance, or is it safer to keep as light as possible?

Twins will mean I'm more prone to GD and also high blood pressure, so safer to keep the weight gain as low as possible. I'm not being stupidly restrictive in my eating but I'm definitely being sensible.

Fluid or not, it's still a major win for you.

Hi ladies! I hope you don't mind if I join. I am 4 weeks along and this is my second pregnancy.

With my first I lost 12 lbs the first tri and then gained it back in my second tri. Third tri I gained about 25 lbs. But dropped all of it within a month of delivery.

This time I'm hoping to lose a little in first tri and maintain from there. Hopefully gaining no more than I currently weigh.

I also have diabetes so I have some food restrictions. I'm really hoping to stay diet and pill controlled this time. Last time I was on a ton of insulin and did not enjoy the experience. But if I need it again I of course will do it. But I'd like to avoid it with my new knowledge of how blood sugar and pregnancy work.

Hi girls

I'm 12st 9lbs (80 kgs) and it is officially 10 kgs more than I would like to be.
On the other hand... I was 70 kgs and pregnancy didn't happen, so, I guess, I needed that extra padding.

Mind you, I WOULD love to loose a stone, or, at least NOT gain any weight during this pregnancy (I am 5 weeks 3 days).

I generally eat healthy, no mc'donalds's etc. But, my weakness is pasta, pizza and all yummy dishes. Potato mash and a good steak - bring it on.

So, for now I am trying to stick with as minimum bad carbs as possible.

Having more veg and lean protein.

Hey KayKe! We are pretty similar in weight (I'm 82kg) but I'm probably 30kg above where I'd like to be/should be. Though I'd just be so happy to see 69kg, I don't ever recall seeing 60-something-kilos on the scale ever.

I've been 82.0kg for 5 days in a row so pretty happy with the stable weight. I'd still like to be 71kg at 40 weeks and hopefully in the 60's after baby arrives.
