Thanks jessie won't be long and you will be ttc!
So glad to hear our preggy mums are doing well.
Disney, I think its totally normal! Even being a childcare worker I was worried, I even broke down in hospital when he wouldn't settle and asked the nurses what was wrong with me? why was I a bad mum? I could settle any could but my own! Turns out he was staving from lack of milk (breast feeding) but make sure you ask the midwives, they will show you, and after a week, you wonder why you worried. You will be fine I'm sure of it. most of it early on is trial and error, and gut feeling.
Who was it that felt implantation? Disney? I had something today, a stabbing pain for about an hour at my pubic bone area... It hurt! Made me move and take a deep breath...just wondering if I'm already sending myself crazy

It doesn't sounds crazy to me at all, it certainly sounds like what implantation should feel like. I so hope it is implantation for you!!!

Ahhh ok...hmm, I thought someone said they felt it. I an thinking its far too early though, even though I ve never had it before
And no worries I was mostly worried about bathing.. What I'd I dropped him? how can I hold and wash him? but the midwives showed me, and helped with the first one, and I was fine after that!

Disney - No probs! Love the names Jobe, Jemima and Elliot! I'm sure you will be a brilliant mum. Try not to stress. All mums have been there at one point. You and bub will learn together.
Shadow - I really hope you felt implantation!
AFM, holiday to the Gold Coast is all finalised (no thanks to Jetstar). Booked our accommodation as well. Just need to start saving our pennies for the theme parks.

Yes Jessy I'm the one constantly harping on about the sugar I'm so glad other people are seeing he health benefits in those around them and making the decision to break the addiction too. Although to the lovely poster who called it a 'diet thing'... It's not a diet. Thanks
As for fruit, some people choose to stop or limit fruit for the first few weeks of withdrawal. This is because having small amounts of fructose while detoxing can extend the detox period. Those people then slowly reintroduce one piece of whole fruit per day, once they have overcome the fructose addiction. Anyone who tells you that you have to give up fruit (or vegetables) to become anti-sugar is dead wrong and scare-mongering. We are pro-fruit in small quantities; however dried fruit and juice contain 30% or more sugar than whole, fresh fruit and we don't advocate that.
Happy to answer any more questions

Hi Mare. I'm interested in going sugar free, so have a few questions too (sorry in advance ) What about products that have small amounts of sugar e.g. bread? Do you make your own bread, or are there varieties available that don't have sugar? What is the view on lactose? Are natural alternatives to sugar allowed, such as stevia? (I wouldn't touch an artificial sweetener with a ten foot pole)

Guideline: anything you eat should contain less than 3 grams of sugar per 100g
Ok: bread: has varying amounts of sugar by brand and type. White bread is barely acceptable, the best bread is Bürgen Rye for sugar content
Lactose: all unsweetened, unflavored dairy products are acceptable; milk, butter, yoghurt, cream and cheese don't contain any fructose, which is the sugar to avoid. In dairy products, the sugar panel will say something over 4.7g/100g. This is because lactose is naturally the above figure, anything over that amount is likely to contain fructose
Stevia: if you can handle the flavour, go for it. Be wary of all artificial sweeteners, they have a tendency to behave like fructose in the gut and readdict you.

Thanks for the info Mare. Yes, I avoid artificial sweeteners already.

Officially out for the count. Stupid AF showed up today. So starting Round 3 Clomid. Is anyone else on here taking Clomid as well? Any tips? Done the robitussin thing, tried pre seed - just can't get it happening. So bloody frustrating.
Glad to hear all the lovely pregnant mums to be are doing well & I will keep fingers crossed for the rest of us.
