@BabyG4 Thanks I'm pretty happy with the weightloss so far.
Hope the check up tomorrow goes well and all is still on track for the surgery. Hopefully you can get UTD quickly and that DH will be in Australia when bub is ready to be born
DP and I already know which pram we want. We love the iCandy Peach or Strawberry. For those with 2 kids already, is having a double pram worth it? The Peach becomes a double but we aren't sure if we would use it as a double often enough for it to be worth it. We would maybe just baby wear the younger bub when the older one got tired enough to go in the pram
@TaylorMade I just saw on the other thread...Congrats to the offer on your house!! That's awesome

Ok so haven't been on here for a bit and just caught up on all the posts..hi everyone!!
Well we are back in hospital today..his been admitted and just waiting on a bed....waiting waiting waiting!!!
I've forgotten now who had the needle phobia..so my partner has an EXTREME Phobia..what we have found helps him..put his arm to the side and he looks the other way..someone holds his arm while the other person puts it in..I stand on the side he is looking and talk to him and wen he is calm the nurse counts him down while I hold his hand and talk to him..about the things he likes..still tricky but helps and he is improving with each needle!!
I don't think it's weight that counts too much..just be happy within yourself and as strong and healthy as you can be.
Oh no @Meagjd Sucks that your DP is back in hospital!
It was me with the needle phobia. That's similar to what has to happen with me. I just can't stand when they talk to me. I don't want to know what they are doing!!
@BeautyOfTheSoul we are liking a age gap between 18 - 24 months. Which will put us TTC in August onwards.
I like the idea of closer then that but i know im not ready and im concerned i wouldnt cope.

His slowly getting better..4 weeks ago he took close to 2 hours to get blood from him..today was 30!! Did something happen in your past to cause the fear??
DPs nan was really sick and the last thing he remembers seeing is her getting a needle and then she passed away so that's why he has this really bad phobia!!
@BabyG4 - I know what you mean about keeping up with the thread! I can see my DP is doing a better job of that than me haha. I'm still in the office at the moment but thought I would check in and read up on what I have missed and there is so much! I will have to come back and do more personals tomorrow. My memory is shocking!
So for the shakes - I do 3 a day and have some veggies as a snack too but that's it really. I did adapt the list of veggies a little to suit me more but the weight loss has slowed down a bit so no more of that. Back to the prescribed list of veggies it is for me. I've still already lost nearly 2 kgs since Thurs but still... DP is doing really well with losing weight considering she hasn't got a lot to lose. Nowhere near as much as me! It's good to be doing it with someone else though. It helps to keep me motivated. If she was eating crap in front of me I would probably cry a little haha.
As for everyone else - so glad to see we have got a nice and chatty group here! Welcome to any commers that I haven't spotted yet! Pull up a seat and join us in our (hopefully short) wait!
Meagjd, I hope your DP is home soon.
Whoever mentioned prams, I'd love a new one. We have a strider plus, which I really like, but it's so big. DD just wants to walk everywhere now, so definitely won't need a double pram
Re: the double pram, I think the same as you (I would wear a baby & push a toddler) but if I were going to get a double pram I'd get a bugaboo donkey. I love bugaboo prams! I'm in the middle of 'doing up' a cameleon at the moment - though that project is on hold until after we move now
