Ok I dont know if this has already been brought up but how does everyone cope with driving late in pregnancy? My tummy is starting to rest on the steering wheel and I have another 8 weeks to go. I cant move the seat any further away cos I wont reach the pedals. I might have to swap cars with DP but dont fancy climbing into a 4X4.

OMG I am nearly at the same stage with my car. I am short so I can't move the seat back at all. I am guessing I will have to sit up very straight to try to get a few more weeks out of it.

I hated that last time. I am not there yet Thank God. Have you tried changing the angle of the steering wheel.

I'm lucky I have long legs LOL driving in late pregnancy has been more impacted by my back and the ability to turn around to see where I'm going when reversing etc. I drive a large van now that's 4WD and it is so much easier to drive than my Commodore, and although I need to climb up to get in, it's alot easier than climbing up and out of the commodore! Maybe give the 4WD a go for a few weeks and see if it helps.

the 4x4 has had a lift kit put in which means it is much higher than the standard ones. so its an effort to get in and out of. The steering wheel in my car has already been adjusted Im sure. oh well, if it gets any worse i think I will just have to swap cars or maybe be chauffered around.. poor diddems..

Just after a little moment to vent!
I have a BMI just over 40 (40.1) and I am well aware of my size, weight and how much more difficult it makes my pregnancy, and I DO NOT NEED a hoity toity dietician giving me the 3rd degree about my weight! GRRRR to them.
I think I've done quite well, I'm 26 weeks 2 days pregnant, and I have only gained 3kg. Which is thought was actually really good. I'm on the BLOOM diet (the one recommended by the dietician I hate!) and that seems to have benefited me a lot. I had gained 5kg, but have lost 2kg in the last few weeks since starting on this diet plan. It's not meant to make you lose weight, it's just meant to ensure you get all the necessary things to help the baby grow properly.
I am hoping that I can maintain the 3kg gain and not gain much more from now (although I know it will be hard because it's from now that the baby gains weight!). Then hopefully when I give birth and the babies' weight and the fluid and extra blood and stuff will bring my weight below what I started at! Hooray!! Then breastfeeding and a little extra gym time and my year off work will allow me to shed a few kilo's.... In an ideal world that is. Hahahaha!
What are you guys all doing to 'maintain' your weight during pregnancy?

Hi all, I need some ideas for healthy main meals and snacks please. I bought some nuts as snacks but now thinking they have too much fat in?? I am preg with number 2 and haven't lost the 30kg I put on with my first bub so I'm desperate not to put any extra weight on with this one.

Hi BeginnerMummy, vent away, nothing worse than someone making you feel bad when you are well aware of the facts.
Grats on your success so far with your weight and don't let the dietician get you down, there is enough to on your plate as it is.
Can you let me know about the BLOOM diet, had a google but couldn't find it. My BMI is around 45 (bit of a guess as we have no scales so going on estimate from last weigh at Christmas) and I want to keep any weight gain to a minimum.
Thanks and I hope you continue to keep your weight down
