    LOL about the sleeping through the night, my kids are terrible sleepers, no matter what I try, and they are still up at least once a night and they are 5 and 7!!! I don't think I've slept through the night since I fell pregnant with Soph. You do get used to it easily though.

    We're plodding along, I've been looking into more natural therapies for things like my headaches etc - won't be able to treat them with coffee, valium and panadiene forte when I'm pregnant! Also looking at some natural therapies for PCOS so that hopefully we won't have to see the fertility specialist.

    My weight isn't coming off as quickly as I'd hoped, and now I'm wondering if Feb is being way too optimistic. I guess we'll see, I'll just have to keep making healthy choices where possible. Tried so hard this week - and for some stupid reason I ended up with a gain, which is so disheartening!

    Oh hamij don't get too disheartened by your gain, if it's close to AF time you can retain water so it could be that.

    The Sleep thing is the one thing I'm not scared of... I have, always, my entire life gone to bed early and risen early I'm such a morning person and if I don't get a certain number of hours sleep I'm feral! I was speaking to DH about this a while ago after we had a really late night And his solution was I will just go to bed normal Time and he can look after bubs during the night and then I can take over in the morning, so I'll need to express for that. DH is such a night time person, lol we are complete opposites in that regard.

    What alternative have you come up with for headaches etc?

    Just sleep during the day when baby does - you do adjust, I used to LOVE my sleep too. You'll struggle to sleep through if baby is waking, plus if breastfeeding your boobs will be full to the point of overflowing if they aren't feeding from them overnight!

    I'm going to try magnesium to start with, to see if that helps prevent my headaches/migraines. I'm also going to look at certain herbal teas, and essential oils (will have to check their safety during pregnancy, but I'm sure that are ok), for if I do get one. Will have to talk to my GP too and see what I can take while pregnant as I can't afford to not treat them at all if natural therapies don't work.

    Before we had DS I had heard or read somewhere that 80% of babies sleep through the night at 3months. I now know that this is a myth on the same scale as santa! LOL! but you do learn to function on broken sleep. And some kids do sleep through early. So the rumor goes anyway. I am very much hoping our next is a much better sleeper. Surely he can't be worse!

    I'm looking to lose abit of weight too. I have to get seroius about it. I'm always good up until lunch, lol! I think I have to resort to gold stars everyday I don't mess it up. Today at lunch while making sandwiches DH grabbed my butt and said 'oh that was werid, it filled but my hand'. Thanks very much!
    I want to lose abot 5kg. Not game to hop on the scale but I'm guessing I'm about 67kg. I was 62 before I was pregnant with ds and 62kg a week after he was born. I want to look good in a bikini again for summer. I was lucky and didn't get a single stretch mark, I want to flaunt it!

    I went on a diet the year before I concieved DS and lost 10kg. So I know I can do it. I would go for a run and because I worked so hard there was no way I was going to put those kjs in my mouth. I need that mind set back.

    That fantastic that you lost 10kgs! I would love to drop 10kg before I try and concieve. I'm so scared about putting on heaps of weight while pregnant! Ha I'm scared of lots of things relating to pregnancy! Lack of sleep and being a fatty are the 2 big ones!! I've seen so many ladies completely blow out while pregnant and then have to try and shift enormous amounts of weight and look after a baby. It can't be good for you either!
