Lol Praying. I was hoping to start this cycle at a smaller size, but 6 months of fertility has added 20 lbs even before the BFP. I'm focusing on eating smaller meals so I'm not as bloated.

Rq- I actually lost 23 pounds since my miscarriage because I really didn't want to start a pregnancy overweight. Im so happy that I'm finally at a normal bmi and I look good!
My first ultrasound will probably be in 1-2 weeks, I guess I'll know more tomorrow after my beta.

Hello Ladies

Do you have room for 1 more?? I'm due February 7, 2017. I suffered a mc a few months ago and I'm struggling to find happiness with this pregnancy. I'm cautiously optimistic. I'm hoping & praying these little beans stick around for 8 more months!! I could really use your support and would love to support all of you, too. Congrats to ALL!!

Welcome boopin! Hope your baby/babies (well, everyone's!!) stick like crazy. X

I also lost some weight this year (about 13lb) after starting a paleo-style/anti-inflammatory diet to help with my endo.... I was just so fed up and decided to be either thin& fit or pregnant&huge in December (our summer holiday) lol! Atm I'm struggling a bit with exercising because I'm super busy at work and tired, I've also been eating a lot more than usual because I'm constantly hungry lol... it hit me hard yesterday that if I continue down this road I'm going to become wayyyy overweight again. Trying to find the motivation to get up and go for a walk lol. Of course I want to have heaps of toast and gummy sweets for breakfast!!
What types of exercise are you ladies currently doing? I really need to do more. Atm I walk for about 30min 3-4 times a week and started some light arm weights again yesterday, also some rotational squats while holding my exercise ball & pregancy core exercises.

Will start adding everyone's due dates later today. I will also put team yellow/blue/pink (for those of us who want to find out) as well as singletons/twinnies.... will be interesting to see how many pairs of twins we have

Over the last 5 years I put on 50!!! I am not proud at all, but I went Paleo after Christmas and knocked some off before I started the last two IUIs then IVF so have been a hormone queen since New Years and have maintained my loss.
Just wondering what pregnancy fitness app have you downloaded? I want to download one, but can't find one

Fern- your exercise regiment sounds a lot better than mine. I'm doing nothing. I need to start something because I'm so out of shape!
I had my beta done this morning, can't wait for the doctor to call with the results!

I started yoga back up this morning, but need to get a pregnancy yoga dvd. There are a lot of things I won't be able to do for very much longer. I have also gained a whole bunch of weight during this process. And I want to try not to gain very much during my pregnancy

OK I edited the first page with everyone's due dates (Myshel is yours correct?). If your dates change due to scan sizing etc just update me . I've put team yellow for everyone except Froggy; once you find out the gender I'll change that too. Lots of babies due all at once.

Myshel I didn't download pregnancy exercise apps, just general pregnancy apps (oviapregnancy, glownurture, the bump, Preg&baby). I got some exercises from a site called "knockedup fitness". A pregnancy fitness app would actually be nice.

Rebecca - update us with your beta!

I can't wait till your first u/s Froggy. First of all of us!

Well I worried a bit this morning because I haven't been having any symptoms for a few days... it's back with a vengeance lol! Lots of heartburn, nausea, some cramps, tired and super emotional. 17 more sleeps before we hopefully see a heartbeat.

For the ladies who did IVF are you still bloated? I wonder when my bloat will subside. I look at least 3 months pregnant and find myself struggling to find tops in my closet that are loose and will hide it. I've been drinking lots of water not sure what else I should do.

Praying, I think the bloat is from pregnancy and not the IVF?? I actually wasn't bloated much until after my BFP and now I'm up a pants size!! if you look on other boards there are a lot of other women that have the same complaints that didn't do IVF.
