I'm up early again courtesy of the small sleep thieves currently hogging my bed. I felt so sick last night and ended up being sick, not great. I seem ok this morning, just tired.
Last of the personals from yesterday (sorry if I've missed anyone):
JJ - so glad your scan went well, it's weird seeing a little wriggly blob!
RL - I'm glad it went well telling your supervisor and that you'll get covered in house.
i hope you all have a good day.

Hey DS. Poor you, hope you can take it easy today with your sleep thieves!!
I couldn't sleep past 5ish but stayed snuggled in bed. Nothing too exciting to report here, all just ticking along. Waiting impatiently to hear date of booking in appt so can get to the 'next thing'. Hi all!

DS- so sorry you were actually sick- hope today is better
Rio- hope you hear soon!
AFM just trying to force down a piece of toast- I'm getting so sick of struggling to eat- I usually love eating!! I've actually lost weight so far :/
Hi to all who follow x

Sorry I didn't make it on yesterday. Combination of exhaustion and heavy workload mean that it just isn't possible every day.
DS - sorry to hear you were sick, hopefully being ill so early means that you will get over the worst quicker...not sure if that's how it works but hope so for you.
Rio - I've just had my letter through yesterday, so three weeks after GP appointment. Of course, I'm up in Scotland so may be different for you. Hope it comes through soon.
Rioja - Bah! I wish! The only thing that stops me feeling nauseas is to eat, I think I've gained half a stone already Hope you manage to enjoy your food again soon.
AFM - I'm feeling a bit fed up tbh. As I mentioned, I seem to be just rapidly gaining weight. I'm trying not to let it bother me as I am so grateful to finally be pregnant and I would do anything for this, but I'm worried that if I've already gained 7lbs in 7 weeks what is that going to mean for the rest of the pregnancy. I've always battled with my weight and follow SW (still going to class), but I only seem to want to eat beige food at the minute (crisps, chips, etc.) and don't feel well enough to cook, partly because my workload is so heavy at the minute. I'm hoping that in three weeks when I finish my final placement I can get back in to meal planning and some light exercise, but I'm worried about what happens if I feel this exhausted throughout. Bah! I'll stop moaning now! On the plus side, I'm in Uni tomorrow so it's almost like a three day weekend (only in Uni for an hour, no school ), and it is our two year anniversary on Monday. Doing well at school and actually keeping up with the paperwork this time. Got my booking in date and scan date through yesterday, it's the week before my birthday which I was hoping for, as it means that we get to tell my mum and gran our news when we go out for my birthday lunch...just perfect
Hi to all who follow
7+2 (still can't quite believe it )

Saffron- scan date sounds amazing! Sorry you are feeling that way about weight. I have put on at least that (not fitting my bum in my trousers anymore) and my boobs have gotten huuuuge! But you do need to be kind to yourself and if you need to eat to not feel sick then do and if you are too tired to exercise then rest. I am surviving on food i wouldnt normally eat and for some reason i have gone off salad and a lot of veg. Hoping to have more energy for exercise in 2nd tri. This is the most fantastic miracle- we can sort our bodies out after is my view!
RL-hope you managed that toast!

DS - why don't these little sleep thieves understand we want a lie in. I hope you get some rest today.
Rio - hope you hear when your booking appt will be soon. Do you have any idea when it will be?
Rioja - don't worry about losing weight at this stage. Just eat what you can when you can. I lost quite a bit last time... I lived off a few spoonfuls of mash & gravy a day - that was all I could stomach for 2-3 weeks. Unsurprisingly, I was then told by mw at one of first appt, I needed to eat more and I still managed to put on 3st from booking appt to M being born.
Saffron - yay for the booking and scan date. Especially with just before your birthday. Try not to worry too much about the weight... it's tough I know but it's because there's a little person growing inside of you. Some of it will probably just be water retention too so that may settle soon. Also, if you're worried about it, why bother weighing yourself?! What the brain doesn't know, can't hurt it in this case.
AFM - 5+6 today, thankfully M went back to sleeping through so I got a good night sleep. Yay! Looks pretty miserable here today, so that's just asking for a nice chilled out day inside.

Thanks ladies, feeling better now...morning blues I think! Sapphire, I'm signed up for a countdown at SW, so prepaid for the next two months...if it wasn't for that I wouldn't be weighing myself as we don't own scales. Glad to hear you got a good nights sleep, long may it continue!
08/05/2014 at 12:58
Ahh, in that case I'd be making the most of SW too. Glad you're feeling a bit better too. Eeek,... a friend has just texted me - she's due her 2nd in November. Just had to bite my tongue and not say anything back.

Good afternoon ladies :)
DS - Sorry to hear that you were sick :( Never nice and you didn't get a good sleep doesn't help either!
Rio - Sorry to hear you didn't sleep well hope you get to hear about your booking in appointment soon!
Rioja - I could do with that problem and loosing weight lol! - Hope you managed to eat something!
Saffron - I am the same - Trying to be good and not put too much weight on! Yay to your scan date being before you birthday will be lovely to tell people at your meal!
JJ - Good luck with the GP tomorrow! and hope you have a lovely time at your friends house. I think telling her would be a good idea!
AFM seen my GP this morning and got what I needed.. Also got my high dose folic acid tablets which I have started today. I am not feeling too bad and actually sleeping well atm...That will soon change lol!.. Tested again this morning and deff a stronger line which was lovely to see. Just got to wait a few weeks to phone the midwifes and get booked in!.
08/05/2014 at 13:40
I didn't ask he was grumpy haha!..Will speak to the midwifes soon :)

Thanks ladies, I don't really mind about the numbers, the weight isn't falling off and I have plenty of reserve (!), just not sure its helping my energy levels. The only things I really seem to be able to face is fruit and crisps so hopefully they balance each other out!!!
saff- I have my booking apt the day after my bday which I'm pleased about too!! Def don't worry about the weight, you need to stay as comfortable as possible.
Sapphire, thanks, its good to know theres an end in sight and I'll make up for it soon. (its so weird for us ladies who have spent so long keeping an eye on their weight to some degree or other to think...ooh I'm going to be putting on 3st+, or it is just me??).
JJ-I'm already bad for telling people-I've told a couple of people at work and I know I wont be able to keep it from a couple of friends for the whole 12 weeks, I just want to share!!!
CC- glad you got a stronger line and aren't feeling too bad- long may it continue!
08/05/2014 at 18:52
CC - yay for the stronger line & the folic acis.
Rioja - I know exactly what you mean about the eyeing up the weight. Putting on all that weight though, best thing alongside having the baby of course is just think of the amazing weight loss in those first few weeks!
