    Well done k :)
    U hve done fab with ur weight loss xxx
    I just throw in whatever I hve :)
    Yest was raspberry , banana, oj and yog and milk.
    I thought squish would hve some
    So didn't put in blueberries and grapes
    Cos they get gritty
    But if it was just for me they would go un too
    When I make them , I get three days out of it
    And it only takes ten mins
    Yummy xx

    Oh yum! I might have to bust out my blender and try some. Need to work more berries into my diet so that would be a good way!

    I'm very lazy with fruit if I don't
    I do like it but kind of forget it
    Weirdly :)

    I find i have to immediately get fruit cut up when I get home from the grocery store. If i don't it tends to just sit there but if its easy access then I'm more likely to grab for it. I think i"m going to pre-bag some veggies and leave them in the fridge. that way when i'm hungry (which today has been NON STOP), its easy to grab veggies out and eat them instead of reaching for junk food

    depends on what it is.

    strawberries you can put a a little bit of sugar on and they will keep. grapes are just picked off the vine and washed to make them easy to grab. we have apples already washed in a bowl (though you could pre-cut them and dip them in sprite or lemon juice and they stay fresh for a couple days). cantaloupe & watermelon are fine for several days/a week. and pears i just buy in a can (packed in water with no sugar added). Peaches i try and sneak some from my parents who can them fresh so they are easy to open and eat lol

    Thankfully today I wasn't as hungry...need to remember i still need to eat though. groceries purchased so hopefully easier to make good choices!

    Hi ladies! Hope you are both doing well! All this talk of fruit is making me hungry. :haha: My son is a fruit monster so I usually only get to pick on what he leaves behind. I do have some frozen pre-prepared fruit smoothy things in the freezer but I'm usually to lazy to bring out the blender.

    So, now that we are all officially knocked up, does everyone have weight goals for pregnancy? When I found out I was pregnant I just wanted to gain less this time than I did with DS (30 lbs). I've kind of modified that a bit now and am hoping to only gain 20 or less. With my BMI the chart says I should only gain like 10-15 lbs but I think that is unreasonable. I don't want to set myself up for disappointment. Haven't weighed myself in a few days but so far I'm never more than +2 or 3. I've been eating pretty shoddily the past few days so that could have changed. Too scared to look. :haha:

    Struggling with name choices this time. We have girl names isolated to two top contenders but when it comes to boy names I seem to hate every option. Have y'all started thinking names yet? With DS we had his name sorted by the time we found out gender at 20 weeks so I feel like I'm way behind the curve ball this time. Help!!!!

    Somewhere around that would be fine
    But I'm way hungrier this time
    So don't think ill keep it
    Hoping second tri be kinder to me :)

    Slight spotting again

    Scan tomorrow eve
    I'll feel safer a bit after
    If alls good
    Spotting is annoying me
    It disappears for ages
    And I think I'm ok

    Darn that spotting, liles. I hope it goes away soon. Good luck at scan tomorrow!!!

    Sounds like we've got pretty similar weight gain goals. The 30 lbs. I gained with DS came off super quick too plus an additional 20 lbs. Over these past two years it has slowly crept back on. I hope with this one I am able to keep up the breastfeeding so the weight has a better chance of staying off.

    I only made it to like 4 or 5 weeks with DS and that was supplementing formula too. I'm hoping this baby doesn't have to spend any time in the NICU as I think that was one of our biggest setbacks for BF with DS. If BF doesn't work this time my plan is to exclusively pump. Formula is a budget breaker so I'm hoping to avoid it at all cost.

    A spell in neo was what scuppered us too.
    By time he was home, he was too hungry for my supply and didn't want to wait
    Then had latching problems
    In hindsight prob due to his stroke
    Id stick it out a bit longer this time round though.
    I felt guilty and crap last time.
    Health nurse told me to stop pumping cos combo was bad for him
    Total bull, but I swallowed it at the time
    Id be a bit more confident in my self next time.
    :)

    Sounds so familiar. I feel like they (the NICU) pressured me so hard to start him on formula so quickly I never stood a chance. This time I'm going in fighting to keep the bottle and pacifiers away from baby until I at least have a shot at BF. FX it works out for both of us this time!

    I gained 16 with Charles and would LOVE if that was all i gained this time lol. I anticipate it being more, probably closer to 25. With him, all that sounded good in first tri was fruit and veggies and so far that's true this time too. I think i ate 3 bananas, some strawberries, carrots and celery with peanut butter today (along with some animal crackers :) ). If I can make it out of first tri with limited/no gain I will be super happy.

    what are you all craving/have aversions to at the moment?

    We have our names picked but now DH thinks he doesn't like the boys name....i literally looked through a list of 1500 names plus 500 or so on another and found ONE name i liked...so he might just have to suck it up if it's a boy LOL. We want Calvin John for a boy and Claire Therese Lynn for a girl

    You ladies are rock stars for trying to bf with having NICU babies. One of my friends had a premie and wound up not being able to bf. What's most important is that baby is fed but I hope you have an easier road with these next babies to try. DS nursed until he was 17 months and I am really hoping the next will be as successful. Of course, he used to sit and eat for an hour at a time....can't do that while chasing a toddler so this baby will just have to adjust!

    Lovely names xx
    With Simon I thought I was having a girl
    So we made a deal Oh name a boy I name a girl
    So then for num two I said I'm naming this one
    Id names picked for my last three losses
    But then I got superstitious and said to Oh that we seem to lose the ones I name
    So he can name this one again :)
    But I hve veto power :)
    I'm secretly thinking names though :)
    I like Emily, Zoe, Rachel, Kate.
    Or Jake, josh, sean and Liam :)

    I wish I was craving the same as with simon
    Its mostly crappy stuff I'm craving
    But I'm happier and feel better when I stay away from it
    :)
