    Glad you're feeling better! What is your favorite to to healthy food to snack on? Looking for some new options

    I'm exact opposite and have gone up 4 pounds this week :dohh: I know its primarily water weight. I have been so bloated and not watching sodium as close. But still...I have to get it together!

    Hi ladies! been sick as a dog here. I've got the nastiest cold I've had in a very very long time. Got sick the day before Mother's Day to boot. Grrrr. I'm finally starting to feel somewhat better, thank goodness! One big side effect from this illness is I can't taste anything so I think I've managed to stay at my pre-pregnancy weight a little longer.

    kk, I'm sure the added weight is just pregnancy related. Favorite snacks are fruit and nuts. Headed to the grocery store today to get food for the week. I don't remember when I last went so we are pretty low on supplies. I've been just eating what I can the past few days. My poor family is going to starve though if I don't get some proper food. :haha:

    liles, glad to see your sickness is diminishing and you are able to eat better. I hope the trend continues!

    Extra sucky to be sick when u cant take anything
    Hugs xx

    Sorry kk I was in a hurry earlier so didn't type much.
    I'm trying to snack less.
    Snacking on junk is a big weakness if mine
    Ice lols I love and aren't too evil
    Popcorn.
    Cracker bread with different stuff on.
    Triangle cheese, jam , tuna.
    Bananas.
    Smoothies.
    Pink wafers sometimes.
    Sugar free jelly.
    Fruit chopped up with meringue nest and a little custard.
    Yum :)

    Hi ladies!! How are we all doing?

    I just got the news that I failed the 1 hour GTT. I'm so bummed. I was hopeful that I would pass it this time (failed with DS). I'm still +/- 1 to 2 lbs total for this pregnancy so I thought I was doing good and had a shot of passing. I know the 1 hr test has a lot of people fail it and some places don't even do the 1 hr test but last time the 3 hr test was so horrible I really wanted to avoid it. I'm going back on Thursday to do the 3 hr. Wish me luck!

    Liles, looks like we are sharing second trimester for a week or two. Are you feeling the second trimester bump in energy yet?

    Kksy9b, you aren't too far off from 2nd tri too! So exciting!

    Hi liles! Glad you and bubs are doing well! Awesome job maintaining weight!!! Good luck with your decision on c-section. I have no input. I'm terrified of a c-section but I can rightly understand given your history why opting for one makes sense.

    AFM, just trucking along. Ended up passing my 3 hr GTT! Thank goodness!! Still no weight gain here. I just weighed myself this morning and I'm 1 lb less than the day I got my BFP!! Officially 31 weeks now. I can see the finish line!!

    Hope y'all have a great week!!

    Hi ladies! How are we all doing? I'm doing great! Trying to get this baby out!!! Got a sweep at my 37 week appointment yesterday. So far not much happening. Set to get another one on Tuesday if she hasn't already made an appearance. At my weigh in yesterday I'm officially up 2 lbs total for this pregnancy. I want to hit the ground running postpartum and not get sucked into putting weight back on. I hope to be successful at BF'ing this time so hopefully that will help. Looking forward to all of us having our little ones soon so we can start to really encourage each other in the weight loss department. I'm pretty sure this is our last baby (barring any surprises) so this time I'm in the weight loss game for realsies. I want to be a healthy weight by 40 (March). Are you all done after this or are big families in the plans for you?

    Very good.
    Is it getting bub out time already!!
    Congrats.
    hope its soon xxx

    I'm not sure if this is my last or not
    Could very well be.
    I'm undecided though.
    Might hve another in a two years r so
    Depending on how things go this time
    But I'm feeling done qt the mo anyway.
    Def want to get the weight down before id even think about going again
    So I'm on for the weight watching :)

    Yay for being at the end!! Hope baby makes an appearance for you soon!

    I am 85% sure this will be our last. It has been a lot more difficult this time around and not sure I want to go through it again. 2 feels right for us but we won't make any decisions until baby is weaned and hormones balance.

    Well done on only being up 2 pounds! I've put on..ahem..26..so far...and am only halfway through. Sigh. My doctor isn't concerned at all about it and just thank goodness I lost so much before. On track to put most of it back on :cry: will DEFINITELY be here with you gals as we encourage and support our next weight loss journey post baby!

    Don't think its real weight cos I haven't been over eating

    Hi ladies! How's it going? You both are so far along already. Can't wait for baby updates. I had my girl on September 9th. Its been an adjustment having a newborn and a toddler. I have so little time to do anything. I've been exclusively pumping. Its a huge commitment time wise but so worth it. I'm down 26 lbs so far and so ready for my 6 week post partum appointment to get the all clear to start working out.


    Hope all is well!!

    Aw congrats hon
    On your little beauty and your weightloss
    I pumped with Simon for two months
    It is hard work but u both reap the benefits
    Xxx
    I'm starting to feel the fear on the toddler plus newborn :)
    I'm imagining it as bring really tough.
    But they r worth it xxx
    Congrats again

    I'm prob not doing as good in terms of weight
    Purposely not weighing myself cos I'm swelling
    Don't want to get majorly disheartened :)
    Will give myself a shock someday soon and check
    If I feel less bloated :)

    Hi! How are you ladies doing? It is so hard for me to get onto B&B lately. I think about you both all the time though.

    Lilies, congrats on your little girl! How's it going so far? How was the section? Are you healing nicely?

    KK - You are getting so close! So exciting!! Any feelings on if you will go early or over?

    AFM, Still holding steady on the weight loss. I can't seem to get past more than about 25 to 30 lbs. I need to start excercising but I just don't have the time. Exclusively pumping is no joke. I have to pump 6 to 7 times a day for at least 20 minutes. Add to that feeding and diapering and all the other stuff you have to do with a baby and a toddler and that equals no time for mama. I barely have time to pee most days. lol I plan on stopping bf in March when Cora is 6 months old and then I hope to have more time to get in shape.

    Hope you ladies are doing well! I'd love to hear how you are doing!!

    Megan

    Hi hon.
    We r good thanks.
    Healing is slow but going well
    I was warned it takes 4-8 weeks
    She is 3 weeks today :)
    Growing mad.
    Bf is mostly going well.
    But she has a sneaky topup of 2 ozs the last few eve
    Cos she was clustering for hours
    And shredding my boobs :)
    But she took to it well thank god.
    I pumped like u with simon
    And it is really tough
    Takes so much time.
    Its constant either pumping feeding or sterilising.
    Well done on keeping it up
    I know its tough xxx

    I gained 2.5 stone
    1.5 gone already.
    Still a bit swollen at times
    So expecting more to go when that comes back to normal.
    Still hve 5.5 stone to lose
    But cant exercise yet.
    So ill start it properly in new year when I'm safe to do that.

    U all set for Xmas?
    Quiet one here.
    But be nice. :)
