Zoe - when will you start trying?

Anyone doing anything to prepare? I'm trying to shed these last few pounds to get to my goal. Already 20lbs below my prepregnancy weight thoughbso not trying too hard haha
We will start after the first of the year. I'm taking this month to de-stress and relax as much as I can.

I'm doing vitamins and keeping up my exercising, and taking magnesium and milk thistle to try and help with morning sickness.

2nd labour is easier for sure, so try not to be anxious about it. Recovery is waayyy easier too. I'm not worried about labour personally. I kind of get excited by it, like, what my body can do is so freaking cool. But really, if you've had a hard first labour know that the 2nd will most likely be a better experience.

Apparently most of the world is magnesium deficient and women who have started supplementing pre pregnancy have less ms/tiredness too! Unfortunately your body doesn't absorb it well when pregnant apparently (why do we not absorb things!?!) so you have to get a jump on it beforehand.

I'm curious, is Jamie a boy or are your 5 all girls? Jamie could be girl or boy over here in Canada . And I imagine after 5 labours it's just old hat for you!!

I'm gonna call foul on the magnesium. I took a supplement before pregnancy with dd (couple months of a good dose) and while pregnant and I had nasty morning sickness for 20 weeks and have been in a constant state of exhaustion since then lol.

Kylasbaby I was the same way during my past two successful pregnancies. I had HG with my second baby up until 16 weeks and with my third until 18 weeks. Amazingly with my first I didn't have any morning sickness. I have no idea if my vitamin stores were depleted or what but I'm expecting HG with any future pregnancies, which is why baby #4 is going to be our last.

Hi, can I join? Really hoping to ttc #2 in Feb, but nervously awaiting smear results as I have had issues before. Should get the results sometime after Xmas so would love something to focus on and keep my mind off them!

Had a tricky delivery with #1 as well so worried about that as it was horrid

I'm waffling a bit... wanted a 2017 baby but now that I've accepted it probably ones happen a 2018 baby is looking better and better! But means I have to keep him/her home a whole extra year before they start school... :/.

I already have 3 and birthdays are

Would it be sensible to avoid these months? Only problem is that would meant waiting until may and I don't think I can be that patient!! Xxx
