Butterfly_Dawn wrote:OMG!!!! Well well well! I'll say congrats since you're now excited about it (I'm always a bit cautious to say congrats in case that's not the best thing to say). Did you happen to see Catalyst last night speaking of eating well for the baby? Very interesting talking about gestational diabetes, and eating low GI and the effects on bubba. Here's a link. http://www.abc.net.au/catalyst/stories/3185309.htm

And yeah, alcohol+pregnant=not a great idea so thank goodness you won't be getting cravings for bubbly any time soon :wink:


Thanks so much for that link! I'd better start cutting down on my fruit juice intake. I'm absolutely craving the stuff right now. And vegetable soup and salad. If only I had such healthy cravings when I was trying to lose weight! But yeah, the fruit juice won't be doing much good for my insulin levels. Luckily I eat low GI most of the time anyway (says she who is about to tuck into some home made potato wedges for dinner tonight!)

I went to my GP today and I've had more blood tests and a urine test (definitely pregnant!). It's funny, the nurse who did the pregnancy test looked so relieved when I cheered. Like you, she said she's always worried it won't be welcome news so she holds off on giving any congratulations until she knows what the woman's reaction will be! She'd done two pregnancy tests before mine today that turned out negative and she was convinced that if there was a third it would be positive. I was the lucky third!

I'm starting to get more excited about this. I'm already feeling bloaty and round, which is a bummer since I'm eating so healthily! I've discovered that walking out in the fresh air helps my morning sickness (yep, it's started already) so I expect I'll be getting a lot of exercise over the next couple of months!

Well I hope you get an ok run with the morning sickness! I have lots of friends at the moment doing the pregnancy/baby thing so I'm getting to be quite expert at know what to expect when! Kind of funny really given that I'm not particularly keen on doing the baby thing myself! It is handy to know so I can support people though :wink:

And if you're craving fruit juice, try eating the fruit instead - less sugar, more fibre (which you're gonna need) and more vitarils and minimums.

LOL. I think I'll be substituting water for fruit juice from now on.

TMI ALERT! PLEASE AVOID THE REST OF THIS POST IF YOU DON'T WANT TOO MUCH INFORMATION OF A GROSS KIND!

I had the worst stomach cramps earlier this evening. I was getting really worried, but it wasn't the crisis I was anticipating. My partner was right when he warned me that too much fruit juice can have a laxative effect! I hadn't realised I drank that much over the last few days. Anyway, I'm not making that mistake again. LOL. :lol:

Congrats on the baby news EBW... Sounds exciting - not so much the fruit juice :)

I've been here (the forum) before - and I always find it comforting that you are here, when I come back :) I've always liked your posts! Wish you all the best.

Thanks Amie! It's great that you're back here :D . The scary admission is that I've always been here simply because I haven't got to my goal weight yet! First the PhD got in the way and now I'm up the duff so it doesn't look like I'll be getting down to 65kg any time soon! Ah well, they say if you want to find out about weight loss you should ask a failed dieter... we've read and tried EVERYTHING. :lol:

I told mum and dad about the baby while they were here over the weekend and after the initial shock wore off they were absolutely ecstatic. I went to Big W yesterday with my partner and my birthday money to get some bigger bras (yep, I'm only about 4 weeks and I'm already busting out of my current bras!) and some maternity clothes. Most of the 12DD bras were maternity bras and I don't need to start popping my boobs out on demand yet. And the maternity clothes were sooooo ugly! I just don't get it. With peasant tops and empire waists all the rage in their women's department the 'normal' clothes look like maternity clothes already. Why can't the maternity clothes look that decent?

I cheered myself up on eBay (yay, eBay!). There are squillions of decent maternity outfits there. And lots of bras in the size I need. That's why it pisses me off when bricks and mortar shops complain that online shopping is driving them to the wall. I was at a shop. I had money in my hand. I was DESPERATE to spend it on something. But all they had was rubbish. (Just thinking, I probably should try Target as well. Last I remember they had quite nice maternity wear.)

Oh, and you know how many pregnant women get sick of people giving them advice? THEY ARE NOT ME! I have no freaking idea of what maternity clothes I should buy. Should I get them in my current size, assuming it's only my belly that should grow, or a size up? I don't know if I should get underwire or non-underwire bras. If you have any tips I will LOVE to hear them! :D

My weight this morning was 72.5 kg. Obviously I'm not trying to lose weight now, but I'm guessing that the doctor is going to ask how much I weigh at some stage so I'm keeping track of it.

Hope you all have a great week!

You know where you should head for that advice? One of those specialist maternity wear shops. Yeah they're expensive, so maybe just buy one thing, or just get advice and then "think about it", but they help pregnant women buy clothes every day, so they should know :wink:

Other mums I'm sure will throw in their 2 cents.

And maybe pop your head in at the parenting and weight loss threads and see if any of the mums in there have any advice?

Good advice! It's funny, I haven't quite wrapped my head around the fact I'm pregnant to the point where I feel like I can join parenting forums. I need to start looking at threads here and forums out in the Wild Wild Web to get more advice on this whole 'creating a human' thing.

I've found some great maternity clothes online. I'm holding off on buying too many of them because I think my more stretchy clothes will fit me through most of the pregnancy and my sister dropped off a some maternity outfits last weekend. Plus we'll be moving soon so I don't want to spend too much money!

A bit late, but I thought I should let you all know that I had a little girl! She's five months old now and doing really well. I'm still breastfeeding so not quite ready to jump back into weightloss yet. I hope everyone is well and happy here and I look forward to returning soon!
