Hi all - im rachel. Ive been on minimins for a while and have hsd sucesses with SW and WW in the past. I got married last august and had a bit of an extended honeymoon foodwise!!! I got my BFP on 1st March (at the heaviest ive been for a while - trust me!). This is my first pregnancy.
Last week we went for a private early scan (8 weeks) and discovered im expecting TWINS!! V excited and quite nervous.
I had my booking app on weds and saw i already have a BMI of 29 do have decided to follow SW to stop me needing my own postcode by 38weeks! Ive been a bit nauseous but no pukey, super hungry though for rubbish like bread and salty crisps and snacks etc. Hoping eating well will stave off this though. Will go back to joining a group next week.

Any thoughts/ tips greatly received.

Friday

Bk - bacon omlette, mango pieces, milky decaf coffee HEA ( only seem to be able to stomach tea or coffer in the morning - makes me gag the rest of the day.

Lunch - corn thins HEB, low fat hummous HEB, vegetable couscous salad & grapes

Tea - chicken and vegetable curry (made with 1 tbsp of pataks curry paste = 1syn) with boiled rice.

Snack - 1 pack of snack a jacks =6 syns
Banana

Don't know why that thread posted twice??? Add onto yesterday more syns for special k crisp things. Really hacked off - i bought a box of salt and vinegar ones yesterday thinking they'd help with my salty/ savoury craving. On the box it said 95cals, so i thought this would be good for a 5 syn snack. But when i opened the box there are no packets, it was just one big grab box. Hello!! Portion control!! Needless to say i ate more than planned ( guessing about 12 syns worth). Own fault but Grrrrr!!! I then ended up thinking ah well - i don't start group until Wed. Can't think like this though as im more than capable of putting on about 4 lbs between now and then!!

New day - feeling a bit icky this morning. Just been sipping on spite zero this helps.

Think we are going for a curry later; will have a tikka of some sort, very little sauce with salad and boiled rice. This means i need to be super good today - whatever i can stomach!!

Hello!!

I too am preg and u fortunately fell foul to the Special K cracker crisp box! Lol. Ate the full box (was 20 syns for the full box so u know)
However, binging on them like I did has put me off completely and the 2nd box has been sat on the shelf for over 2 months now :-(

Hope u have a good day! X

Well i bit the bullet and went back to group. Not half as bad as i was expecting. Just 3lb on so far - god knows how????
My consultant was new so the regional rap was there meaning she had loads of advice. She'd followed the plan last year when pregnant and only gained 8lb, she was about 12st ish to begin with.
They will not comment on any gains and said the midwife should give me a weight gain limit. Hope to shift a couple of pounds in the last few weeks of my first trimester then see about damage limitation!!

But you've done so well with only a 1st 10lb gain. Most of that is baby, water, placenta, extra blood etc! Was reading in my 'what to expect' book how all of these things add up. Not long for you now! Exciting. X

After such a positive weds the grotty feeling was back Thursday and all i could do was eat!! Not been on plan for 2 days and i feel shocking for it. Felt so uncomfortable going to bed last night - only had fish finger wraps for tea but think the white bread id had at lunch did the damage! Back on plan today x
