Pregnant in 2018

All the other threads seem to be older now
So hopefully might be able to find some motivation for the 2018 babies.

In around 5-6 weeks pregnant but sadly in my 17st area , I've been doing SW for the past couple of months and lost 8lbs quite quickly but since I found out 3 weeks ago I was pregnant, the motivation stopped and I've piled the 8lb back on (also blaming Xmas etc).

Looking for some mommies-to-be who are trying to stick on plan too.
Today is last day of anything naughty and tomorrow I start back on plan again and also with my spin classes which I stopped after I found out too, to at least try to keep going with my exercise.

Congratulations Chika on your wonderful news:)

Hopefully you won't have to wait to long before other mommies-to-be join you here.

Good luck with SW!
Hi chicka thought I’d join.
Firstly congratulations on your pregnancy x

I’m not actually pregnant yet but we’re trying. I’ve been diagnosed with PCOS so hopefully it won’t be to long until I get my BFP.

We have a seven year old daughter and I’m following slimming world.
Since September I have lost 31pounds, gaining 5pound back over Xmas!.. kicking myself, so it’s now 26.
I’d ideally like to loose another two stone, I’ve started exercising for 20mins every other day.

How are you getting on with SW and pregnancy?

Your right there isn’t enough up to date SW pregnancy threads, I’d like to follow you on your journey and update with mine 🙂
Thanks DinoDana

I’m experiencing cramping & heavy feeling so let’s see if I get AF
Going back to SW, I’ve stuck to plan apart from tonight, I just can’t seem to totally stick to it when I know the weekends coming.
I have weigh in Tuesday, I’m going to be extra good for the next few days.
I’ll update with weight loss and any news

Chicka hopefully you’ll rejoin us for an update x
I know how you feel with the weekends, that's why I weigh on a Friday to be honest then if I do go over my syns on a weekend I can make up for it the rest of the week or if I stick to plan I can have more syns during the week.

Fingers crossed AF stays away for you this month and it's time for that BFP
That seems odd, are you always regular?
I'm usually extremely regular but have had times when I was 1, 2 and even up to 5 days late.

It could be that the test isn't sensitive enough either. Sorry I know that's saying it could go either way.

If I were you I'd wait until I were a week late and then test again. Fingers crossed for you. Do you have any symptoms?
Hi thanks for replying dinodana,
Think AF is here today having slight bleed, can notice when wiping, I feel really groggy today. Hopefully we’ll get better Luck this month.
I wonder how chicka is getting on no sign of her yet...
Sorry to hear that, although just means the start of a new cycle - fingers crossed for this one for you :)

We're considering starting to try in March ourselves now. So about a month and a half to prepare (we were thinking May but that was then put forward to March instead)
Nice to hear your planning on trying soon.
My partners away with work next month during my fertile days so maybe March for us as well.
Will this be your first?
Do u know if it’s possible to loose weight in the first trimester following slimming world?. Be nice to hear some Sw pregnancy stories without trawling through the old threads
I don't think the recommend losing weight at all during pregnancy (depending on weight - I think if your doctor recommends losing weight slimming world is one of the better ways of going about it) It probably is possible in the first trimester as the baby is so tiny and they don't recommend you putting too much weight on in the first trimester anyway.

This will be our second but there is a big gap between them, my son is 9 and from a previous relationship - to be honest it wasn't the best relationship and my pregnancy wasn't enjoyed because of that - so it will be nice to experience everything properly.

Sorry to hear he will be away next month
