Kirsty's pregnancy and new Mummy diary- from 30 weeks onwards!
I'm Kirsty and I'm pregnant!
I did have another diary that I used to reach target with Slimming World.
However I've been meaning to start a new one for my pregnancy and finally here it is!
A bit of background about me:
I started SW in August 2012, lost 2st 9lbs before reaching target in March 2013.
I then managed to maintain for 5 months before falling pregnant. I continued to maintain my target weight right through my 1st trimester.
This was partly down to being so ill with morning sickness, right from 6 weeks until 24 weeks!
Naturally, however, I've see been piling on the pounds and by the start of my 3rd trimester I had managed to gain 25lbs. A bit more than I would have liked but I really did struggle to follow SW so wasn't overly surprised.
I'm now trying to minimise much more weight gain for the remainder of my pregnancy, by attempting to follow SW as best as I can.
My meals are always ok but it's the snacking I struggle with!
On the pregnancy front, this is my first baby and me and my husband, Paul, and we are very excited!
We went on holiday last August (2013) for our 2nd wedding anniversary and came back pregnant!
Which was the plan but we honestly didn't expect it to happen at the first attempt!
As I've already mentioned, I was very ill with morning sickness, so ill I was admitted to hospital 3 times to be put on a drip.
Once that part was over, I've mostly suffered with the usual- indigestion, heartburn, backache, restless legs etc.
I'm currently 30+3 and for the last few weeks I've been getting heavy and uncomfortable!
Finding it hard to drive, sleep, walk, work and I've gone from having very little bump-age to people asking if I'm having twins!!!!!
My due date is 17th May and we decided to stay team yellow :)
So I'm going to post my attempts at staying on plan every day and also lots of bump pics, etc.
Welcome to my diary :)
