    Going from two to three without eating for five!

    Hello everyone I have another diary on here that I made in the run up to my wedding, as that's now been and gone someone very wise suggested I start one for the next stage of my life and thought I would take her advice.

    For those that don't know me already, I'm Caroline. I got married in August and found out shortly after that we're expecting our first child in April next year. So here's our little Spud, growing away contently. This was at 12 weeks, so about 3 weeks ago now.

    Going from two to three without eating for five!-10544384_562313335266_8972378397144023699_n.jpg

    So far weight wise I seem to be doing OK. I piled on about a stone very quickly before the wedding and didn't really know why, now I think that this may have had something to do with it. I've lost 7lb of that and have now just been maintaining for the past couple of weeks. I have quite a lot of weight to lose though so I could probably do with still carrying on to lose a lb here and there for now but not sure how long I'll manage to keep losing for. I'm not really too bothered though, I'm more concerned about just staying healthy and trying to gain as little as possible. I think to do this I really need to get into exercise, it's half term (I'm a teacher) so going to have a go at starting swimming again this week.

    Looking forward to getting to know some other mums to be on here as well as sharing the journey with my few regular visitors.

    Thanks ladies.

    I can't decide whether to do the patchwork quilt, I think it might be a bit above my skill level! I'm still tempted to have a go though, I'll probably work on it over Christmas once my niece's baby is here so I know whether it's a boy or girl. Apparently my mum has started knitting me things bless her. I actually really like knitted stuff on babies so I'm happy with that.

    I haven't been swimming yet, I've got a bit of a bad cold and chest that I want to get rid of first. I'm getting a bit of a sore hip already and with my dodgy knee I know that's bound to play up at some point, I know swimming helps strengthen my knee when it's bad so it's worth doing.

    Weighed myself this morning and was a little surprised to see that I've lost another lb, making it 8lb in total since we found out. I haven't been eating too badly but I've not been really good either so I didn't think I'd have lost. That's from the past 2 weeks so only half a lb a week buy I'm OK with that. My NHS update thing said that by now most women have put on about 10lb and now steadily gain 1-2lb a week. The longer I put that off the better, the 8lb may really be worth more than 8lb if I've put on some baby weight. I'm more bothered about just being healthy though, I need to give myself the best pregnancy I can and this baby the best start I can. Not sure how long I can keep up not gaining but I'll try for as long as I can!

    I'd have a go at the quilt if I was you... You never know the limits of your skill set until you try, what have you actually got to lose... xx

    I think I will give the quilt a go, I'll probably start once she's had the baby so I know if it's a boy or girl.

    Weight seems to be just going up and down withing the same 2lb range at the moment. I'm OK with that, I just don't want to gain yet but do need to try harder with food.

    I'm trying to persuade A to buy me a kitchenaid for Christmas. I so desperately want one but it's just not working! I've done lots of baking this weekend, which I really enjoy, but there was one recipe that was a really heavy one and I really wished I had one.

    How are you all doing?
