Cantwaitforabubba- I haven't met you yet, hi!! 😊 What great news for you to come home to!
Glitter- I had baaad back and abdominal cramps with DS2, I thought I'd strained my back BDing! And having that mixed with my cramps from the endometriosis. Little did I know that it was just him in there, getting comfy! Haha ❤
So fingers crossed for you!
Happy birthday futuremama! I hope you had a wonderful day xx
Happy birthday futuremama & fx for a BFP Glitter girl!
LRA - how are your cycles going ? Are they still all over the place?
indigoj - did those weird symptoms turn out to be a chem preg?
Glittergirl - shoulder surgery ouch!! I hope it wasn't too major?
Afm - Is everyone back at work yet? I am and it's incredibly busy but I'm starting to get back into my normal routine which I'm finding to be fantastic. I'm so routine driven that as soon as I lose that rhythm I'm out of whack (anyone else like that). I'm back at the gym every night after work (and its starting to become second nature) on my way home which is good, I'm enjoying it which surprised me. I'm paranoid about my weight at the moment, I think it's because the start of my ttc journey is only 9 days away and I'm even more stressed out about gaining weight in my pregnancy. I lost so much weight at one stage (because I let myself go and gained 15kg!) and it was freakin so hard to shift it (god bless personal trainers and lite n easy). I felt amazing for it and now over the last few months its been creeping back (I've put on 6kg in 3 months) so I am desperate to get back to where I was before I ttc! If not a few kg lighter!! I was talking to dh last night about this and I made him promise that he would drag me kicking and screaming to the gym if needed! I can see myself just not doing anything and then hating myself for gaining 30kg because I've been lazy and just stuffing my face with food.
Ladies with bubs already, did you gain much weight during your pregnancy? What did you do or wouldn't do this time round?

Hey Disney - yep I'm back at work! But my DS' aren't back at school yet and it's killing me to leave them everyday! I only work pt, but it's still hard. I don't think my routine will start back properly until they're back at school, I leave a clean house in the morning and come home to a bomb site! DF is awesome with cleaning, etc. but he needs to be prompted! Lol.
As for weight gain, with DS1 I gained 19kg (crazzzzy, I ate like there was no tomorrow and retained A LOT of fluid). With DS2 I only gained 12ish kg, but the fluid was nowhere near as bad and I think due to the fact I was running around after DS1!
Probably also I was giving DS healthy meals, so I was eating more good foods myself...
Being fit will definitely help you during the pregnancy and birth though! It makes things much easier 😊 HTH xx
Double post, thought my phone ate it
