    I'm so happy to be here ;)
    I'm 11 weeks pregnant with my first ever pregnancy (I have a lime sized baby in my belly) and super excited. This baby is literally a miracle. We tried ONCE before telling ourselves to leave it a while as we had a holiday booked and I didn't wanna go with morning sickness. Anyway it happened that one time and I went to Dubai 9 weeks pregnant. Luckily I have been fairly in control of my sickness and control is by eating. I seem to only feel sick when I'm hungry. Been very very tired which I'm told is normal. Heard the babies heartbeat :) and excited for the scan in less than 2 weeks.

    Anyway why am I hear on a slimming world board?
    I always planned on eating well through pregnancy. My brother who is overweight and has been most of his life has started going to slimming world meetings and I said I'd support him and join him, with the idea being we help each other. I'm not going to the meetings and I'm totally using his online log in. He doesn't know I'm pregnant yet but I don't think it matters. At the end of the day slimming world is about a healthy lifestyle and I'm 100% sure this will be healthy for my body and baby. I have over indulged in the past 6 weeks mainly due to sickness so if I lose weight I will not worry. However my main aim is for some STS results and a slow and gradual weight gain. I don't want to gain 40+ lbs when I can probably gain 20-25lbs and still have a healthy baby.

    I begin Monday, wish me luck! I hope to follow many of your diaries also.
    I want to follow my pregnancy as well as my diet on here.

    Just thought I'd share this cuteness. I wanted to find a baby bodysuit that said something like 'I love my daddy' so I could wrap it up in the hubby's valentines gift. We haven't bought any baby stuff yet and wanted to wait for scans etc but I just thought it would be cute and make it feel more real for him. Anyway all the nice stuff is pink or blue. Eventually I found a unisex multipack. One of them was this. So I'll just wrap up this one :)
    The other 4 are also says I love my mummy, the rest have elephants on in various designs.

    So my first official day is tomorrow, I could have started today but we did a big shop and I wanted to be prepared.
    I have been fairly good today anyway but since I start tomorrow I am allowing myself a after eight mint yogurt tonight :)

    So I had a lovely bath tonight. Our bath is broke and the water comes out hot and cold and it ends up being too cold by the time is full. It's getting fixed this week but desperate times call for desperate measures and I just switched the shower on to fill the bath. It was actually quite quick. I had 2 candles on and used a 'lush' bath bomb I got at Christmas and just relaxed in a lovely hot bath :)

    I was sick for the first time this morning which isn't bad going considering I'm 11 weeks. I've felt sick for about 5-6weeks now but today it actually happened and for the rest of the day I've felt great.

    Melon, Grapes, Yogurt
    1 x Wholemeal toast and marg
    (All down the toilet)

    Pasta with homemade pasta sauce, lots of veg

    Homemade pork and apple burger with mash potato, carrots and green beans

    Mugshot (mid morning) apple, banana, orange, carrot and hummus, after eight yogurt, 1 x pack mini cheddars

    Okay so I can't say my first day or 2 has been a huge success. I'm still struggling with sickness, so while I am trying to stick to plan, when I start feeling sick (usually I'm at work) I just have to eat to stop myself being sick. It's usually carbs I want. So I have some mini crackers, cereal bars etc and I've been having something like that.

    So I have been going over my syn allowance but I think other than that it's going well. I have been very tired, which is why I haven't recorded my food the past few days. I have had naps when returning from work.

    Anyway looking forward to ending the 1st trimester.

    Hi ya, I too have just started my pregnancy diary, I am 4+2 and very nervous/excited!

    I have a holiday booked for May and will be 17weeks then so I wanna keep off as much as I can so I look and feel as good as I can

    Aww Congratulations! I found the first few weeks the hardest as I kept getting cramps and felt like my period was going to arrive at any min. But it never. Then that went....sickness started. I'm not moaning I'm pregnant and lucky it's going well :)

    I'm not sure how much you will be showing by 17 weeks. But staying healthy while pregnant is a good idea. I find it hard as all I have been wanting to stop sickness is carbs but I think I'm eating a lot better still .

    My problem is more my back, I've had problems anyway and have strong painkillers to help control it but I've not yet seen my dr so I'm laying off them! I have had a bit of a dodgy belly and seem to feel queasy for about 20 mins then it will ease off.
    I know what you mean, we had a mc last year so it just adds the stress even more, I'm trying my best to think positive!

    0-3 months reduced to £1

    So our inlaws haven't left the house in about 6 months other than GP/Hospital appointments. We do all their shopping etc which is hard as they live 40mins drive away. Anyway his mum asked us to buy her some PJs. She LOVES penguins. So after our scan on Thursday we will see them Saturday. We will give his mum these in a bag and say "we got your pj's hope they fit" and see her reaction when she opens them. We are obviously hoping she realises I'm pregnant lol

    Aw how sweet. I'm so excited to start shopping! I already know how I want the nursery! I'm not going to buy anything til after 12w scan though as I'm very superstitious.
    Hope the surprise goes well!
