Tequila: I am using the next few months before ttc to lose a bit of weight I've put on in the last year, try to kick my pepsi max habit (like Lou!) and cut down on caffeine (not doing too badly, actually).

I already eat pretty healthily and exercise and don't smoke at all or drink often, so just doing what I can to get ready while hoping for the best and I'm also finishing my post-grad degree. I've been taking folic acid since the start of the year, too.

Also - I went for a check-up (blood tests, etc) to make sure everything was in 'working order' before ttc and turns out my nurse found that my thyroid is slightly underactive. So using this time to sort that out, as well! All of that plus coming on here keeps me distracted enough (for now!).

CowtownGirl - I'm so glad you understand my addiction to Pepsi Max!!

You also just mentioned folic acid which reminded me to take mine so I've just taken my first one!! Makes it feel very real now!

I'm also trying to lose weight. My journal is something like WTT, Wedding and Weight Loss!

I'm glad I found this thread (and this whole WTT section) - it is so nice to chat to others WTT!

Yes, totally!! I'm on campus all day and they only sell coke, so I have to walk to the shop to get my pepsi max at lunch! I am going to try to replace it with sugar free squash or something.

I'm trying desperately to lose weight (but hoping that getting the thyroid sorted will help with that!). I got married in 2007 and lost almost 90lbs (6 stone) for my wedding. I've put about 2 stone back on so trying to get rid of that before ttc! It is great to chat to others who are wtt and to know that other people understand how it feels - it's been fantastic finding this forum.

Will go have a look at your journal!!

My plan with the Pepsi Max is to have my one bottle during the day as I do now but stop having it in the evening. I'm going to replace it with sugar free apple and blackcurrant squash which is my favourite!

I have a great alternative to coke/pepsi at the moment.... (Because I've cut it right down to one maybe 2 cans a week now.)

DH bought me a Sodastream for Christmas after I had been pestering him for one, for over a year, and it's great.... Want an alternative to sparkling white wine? Half soda water and half white grape and peach juice from Sainsburys. It's fantastic, and I never miss the wine. (I have it in a champagne or wine glass, and it's great.)

Hmm.... May I shoudl start a Journal....

It's a kind of, welcome home, as it were.

I suspect that for my sanity I will not be moving over to TCC because that's more likely to stress me out. So sorry girls, I'm staying here, unless I get chucked out. (It's rather intense on the 'dark' side.)
I probably won't move over to TTC either, unless I have a reason to do so...

lol!! I love your alternative to wine Dragonhawk! My family had a soda stream (called sodamistic in Canada) when I was small. I remember many a birthday party spent making drinks!

I've been doing well cutting my tea/coffee, it's definitely the cold drinks that I like. Will have a go at different kinds of squash and see what I like!!

OK, I'm being incredibly blonde this evening.... How do I post a link to my waffling journal in my signature?

Oh yes, Im a big soda stream fan, I generally use it to fizz up tap water and thats it! I get through 3 or 4 litres a night with ice and lemon slices. I used to drink a lot more wine - especially at home, but I havent really had it in months and there are bottles in the house which have lasted for ages!

18 months ago I was addicted to diet coke. Used to have 4 or 5 cans a night, when I was working night shifts, and my sleeping pattern was totally mashed! So I went cold turkey, and havent had a coke, diet or otherwise since. I dont miss it at all. I drink pints and pints of water at work now and its much better - not to mention cheaper!

Ive just replaced all the coffee and tea at home with decaf (its horrible, its gonna take some getting used to!) so I think Ive got it sorted.

Diet-wise, I eat low carb and I intend to keep to this. Ive read a lot of science on this and am 100% convinced its best for me and baby. Just need to stick with it and I will lose the rest of the weight.

And the check up thing is a good idea. What do I do - just ask for a pre-pregnancy check up with the nurse?

Ask to make an appointment for a check prior to TTC. That's what I asked for and was told that I would have to see a doctor for this as the nurses are not able to do these.

I'll let you know what happens tomorrow, as I have my appointment at 9.50 tomorrow morning.
