    Its a long story really. I lost a baby in Jan at 12 weeks and ever since my cycles have been all over the place. 'Should' have been due last week and felt bloated etc and gained 2lbs :( despite sticking to the plan.

    Still no sign and still feel fat and bloated with all the signs and got weigh in tonight. Im not pregnant (wish I was :().

    Feel so crap and deflated but going to stick at it as I know I will have a loss once AF has arrived!

    Ssorry just having a moan, Hubby sick of hearing me!

    Hi,

    I lost my baby at 9 weeks in Feb and my cycles have also been all over the place, actually I say that but I've only had one proper period since then. I think I've also gained about a stone and a half since then aswell which probably hasn't helped.

    However I'm now turning my life around - want to lose approx 4 stone before we start trying again.

    Today was the first day I saw a baby and didn't get upset/angry/jealous. It was even called Max - the name we said we liked if it was a boy. It was a cutie and I know it will happen to me when the time is right.

    Anyway good luck, with your diet.

    Debbie

    sorry to hear about your losses :(

    I take apple cider vinegar tablets a couple of days before mine start and for the first couple of days, it seems to keep the bloating under control most of the time. You can get them in most pharmacies or supermarkets and they are quite cheap. Some people take them all the time, but I prefer it just when I feel like a balloon!
