    Pregnancy and Slimming World

    Starting a thread for Starlight to sticky. I thought it would be a good idea to have an area for moms-to-be so we can support each other as we go through pregnancy whilst staying on plan on SW! It would be great to hear ideas on SW friendly ways to deal with nausea and cravings and also trying to ensure that we're eating a wide variety of healthy food to keep us and our babies strong! So here's to being preggers and achieving success on our SW journey!

    Honey that sounds like a fantastic idea - I would really benefit from support from other pregnant slimming world members and in turn support them too. I'm determined that I will continue with my weightloss despite my pregnancy and be at least 3 stone lighter by the time baby no 7 arrives

    How good would we all feel if we managed to keep on track, have a healthy pregnancy and have the added bonus of still seeing the pounds melt away even though it will probably be at a slower rate.

    My consultant said that in reality they don't want pregnant ladies to aim to lose weight during their pregnancy but more to stay in control and limit their weight gain - I myself know that if I food optimise properly I will be able to continue losing pounds - a pound a week would be great to aim for. Saying that in reality I dont know how it works, never having followed slimming world during a pregnancy, infact never having even followed a healthy eating plan while pregnant - I've always used pregnancy as the normal excuse to eat for 2 or actually 3 in my case lol.

    Here's to healthy pregancies and fat bouncing babies!!

    Well done for your determination Alia!! I read in an article that you're not meant to gain any weight in your first trimester anyway. So I'm hoping to lose a little bit in my first trimester, maybe 5lbs - 7lbs and then gain modestly from then on. I also read that at 24 weeks your baby can taste what you eat and develop a liking for it (or is at least familiar with it) so if you eat tons of choc you'll have a baby wanting the same but if you eat lots of fruit and other healthy food that's what your child will crave. I hope it's true because I've been eating lots of fruit and hope to continue!

    Jericebenton yes we do have to pay and get weighed every week like everybody else. Seems a bit unfair paying to attend a slimming club and watching the scales go up and up LOL!

    Honey have you noticed we are only a day apart in our pregnancies - there is deffinately a baby boom going on because I've got another friend who has just found out she is pregnant and she is due on the same day as me. I would love for the first time since baby no 1, to go full term and be with you till the end but I'll have to have my baby at 3 weeks early at the latest due to have sections every time.

    Yes I noticed! I'm almost 100% sure that this baby was conceived on m birthday hee hee...
    I'll have to have a C-section as well because I had a myomectomy 2 years ago to remove a fibroid. Apparently it was the size of a 16 week pregnancy so if I try to have a natural birth I may rupture my uterus

    Can I join please? Am 11 + 3 and currently still in the sicky nausea stage, I currently am having problems eating fruit, veg, dairy and pasta and can't remember the last time I stuck to SW. Hopefully this will pass in the next few weeks and I can get back on it (hubby can't wait, can't remember the last time I cooked!) Think I have put on 2lb max so fingers crossed, it can start going back the other way once I go back to food optimising.

    Honeyoc - at my first midwife appointment I was given the bounty pack and there are loads of leaflets and clubs to join and I'm sure it's pampers or tesco that do a baby changing box thing! Will be signing up for everything next month I think!
    Back on it!

    Oh wow so there's a whole world of freebies out there for moms!!! LOL!

    Laws1980 it's so encouraging to hear that you lost so much weight while you were pregnant! I must admit I've been finding things a bit difficult because when I'm hungry I feel soooo nauseous and dizzy, and fruit makes me feel worse (go figure...) Today the only thing that made me feel better were M&S pretzels, I ate about a quarter of a big bag and now I feel like I've blown it. It's hard finding the balance between feeding your body with what it takes to feel better and making sure it's healthy. I've gone off meat and veggies for the most part too I'm just hoping it doesn't last much longer so I can get into SW proper and get back to enjoying all the foods I used to enjoy.

    Good luck with your scan! What sex are you hoping for?s
