Hello everyone! I'm Saria, I'm 29 and 18 weeks pg with my third babydue May 8th 2013. Really wanting a girl as we already have two gorgeous little boys! Waslosing weight at Slimming World , lost 17lbs in total so far, but a lot more to lose. Midwife has given me the ok to continue, but I've hit a bit of a wall and with Christmas coming up and my addiction to mince pies and brandy butter, I figured I needed a bit of extra help! So, have joined up on here, with the idea of eating healthy, drinking a lot more water, and hoping to start going for walks and swimming for some gentle exercise as I don't exercise at all at the moment! I also turn 30 at the end of next year, so want to get down to a more comfortable weight as have spent my twenties overweight and miserable!

Hello! My name is Rhiannon. I have an energetic three year old girl. I've been a single mom since she was born, but a couple of years ago met an amazing man (who i'd known his youngest brother and his father -- who had been my highschool english teacher--- but had never met him before.) We are getting married November 10th 2012, and i found out this past weekend that I am expecting my 2nd, but our first together.

My daughter calls him daddy and he has told me that he wants to adopt her after the wedding.


We've decided to wait until around Christmas (hopefully when i'll be getting my first ultrasound) to tell our families.

I figure I should post a lil blurb about myself here since I just posted in another thread and this is the "Introduce yourself" one:)

I'm 33 and pregnant for the 2nd time. I lost a baby at 8 weeks in December--my first ever pregnancy. It had stopped growing at about 6 weeks. I was pretty devastated, but was okay after counseling and getting my body back into supreme shape before a 5-year wedding anniversary trip to Mexico in July--around when our baby would have been born.

I'm doing great now--actually feeling a little TOO good--which makes me nervous from time to time. My MC in Dec was a missed MC, so you can probably see why feeling GREAT puts me a bit on edge, in a sense. I'm 8 1/2 weeks and will be 9 weeks, 2 days at my appt next Tues. It can't get here fast enough, as I want to see that little one on the U/S FINALLY. I want to FINALLY hear that heart beat we never got to see/hear last time.

More about me? I've always been extremely athletic, but have had struggles with my weight off and on since high school. I'm 6'2", you see, and with a large frame, I wasn't built to be a size 6, or even a size 8! At my smallest, I was about a 12 and I was thin! I'm pretty happy with where I'm at now even though I would have loved to have lost a little bit more--in a perfect world--before this pregnancy. But being that it only took us 1 official try this time around, I'd say my body was ready to go! Other than that, I've always been very healthy. I have no pre-existing medical conditions and am sincerely hoping for a very healthy pregnancy, all the way through:)

Fingers crossed all goes well on Tuesday. I'll check in here after the appt:)

Hope everyone else is having a wonderful pregnancy!

Welcome, RAINEYDAYE, and congratulations! Sending you lots of good energy and prayers that this little one will be 'sticky.'

DH and I were looking into foster adoption as well when we got pregnant. Had already gone to the county orientation, but had been putting off starting the classes while we gave acupuncture a try, on the recommendation of a friend. The acupuncture and herbs worked! We may still look into adoption someday, though.

And welcome to a fellow bellydancer! I'm still going to my intermediate classes at 5.5 months and plan to keep it up as long as I can, modifying where I need to. It's a good form of dance for pregnancy--strengthens muscles you'll need for labor and carrying the baby and most of the movements can be done with a big belly. :)

Hi. I just found out about our little surprise two days ago!! I had an emergency transport to the hospital from a home birth with our little boy (who just turned three) and then three days after we got home from the hospital with him I had an eclamptic seizure that put me back in the hospital. Things went well once I recovered from that...till last year. I had an early miscarriage from a surprise pregnancy in February 2011, a traumatic loss from a planned pregnancy at 8.5 weeks just three days after seeing a healthy baby on ultrasound in August 2011, and then a missed miscarriage from a surprise pregnancy in November 2011. The third miscarriage my body retained the placenta and when it finally detached in February I began to hemorrhage, crashed three times in the ER, and had to have an emergency D&C!!

Needless to say after all that we had decided to not have any more bio children and to pursue foster adoption (in fact, tomorrow evening we have an informational meeting about that to go to). So to say we were surprised with this pregnancy while preventing is an understatement!! It is still sinking in and I am pretty nervous....but I will love this baby for however long we have it!! I had just started bellydance classes at the beginning of August and am involved in a hooping challenge as well. I plan on keeping active (moderately, since I was no athlete to begin with!) throughout my pregnancy. I started out my first pregnancy at 145 and got up to 181...but fit back into my pre-pregnancy clothes and was back down on the scale to pre-pregnancy weight within a month of delivering. Of course, my SHAPE is completely different than before kiddo!! This go-round I am starting off at 150...so I have a little less leeway as far as weight gain....but I have hopes to keep on track...since last time around I was a total couch potato and I am at least starting off more active!!

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Welcome, Angel, and congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm an older mom, too -- having my first at 42. We also managed a natural pregnancy after 2 years of fertiility stuff that didn't work. It's wonderful to know you're still capable of it, isn't it. Best wishes for a healthy full-term pregnancy this time!

HI there! I am 43 yrs old and pregnant! It was a miracle given that we didn't use any fertility help.. But we've been trying for a long time. I have a five year old son.. And I lost a baby in 2009 at 10 weeks pregnant.

I am due in mid April, 2013.



~Angel

You are worth having a healthy body!

This is a lifestyle change to be healthy, not a diet and not a sprint to get there.. one day at a time, one pound at a time.. as long as it takes, starting again as often as possible.

I am new to the team. This is my 2nd pregnancy and I feel no wiser...lol You'd think I'd be a pro, but I'm still surfin the net for answers on everything as if this was my first time.This came as quite the shock since my hubby and I were "thinking" about trying in December.... We are super estatic, but I'm super ill right now.... I feel sick all day, the nausea is getting me pretty bad this time around.

Hi, everyone! I've been on SP a long time now. Just joined this group. This is my first pregnancy after several years of trying most everything (details in my latest blog post). Due December 12. DH and I are very excited. Everything has been going great so far. Ultrasounds all looked good, no morning sickness (plenty of other symptoms, though). Going for a nuchal translucency screening tomorrow.

Any other older mom's in this group? I just turned 42.

Hi everyone! Just got the positive tests today. This will be our 1st! Although we're due late in the year (Dec 17th is the calculated date) it's still technically the fall!

I have an appointment scheduled for Thursday, April 26th to get a confirmation and begin going over things with my doctor. I want to ask about the same things everyone else seems to be concerned about: exercise, calories, dietary needs, and all that jazz.

I'm excited to find a place to talk with others who will be experiencing the same things around the same time.

Hi all! I just found this group and I'm so excited! I just found out a few days ago we're expecting our 2nd baby late in the year, and I'm making staying fit and eating right my top priority! With my first son I gained 76 lbs and it took 3 years to get back down to my "normal" weight. I refuse to do that again! I'll be doing TurboFire and P90 (with modifications as needed) throughout this pregnancy, and I'm really hoping to pull some motivation from you ladies as I start to get heavy and tired toward the home stretch.

Good luck to everyone on your goals and here's to happy healthy babies!
♥ Julie!

Hi! I am a 36 year old teacher with two kids of my own (ages 9 and 10), and 4 step-sons (ages 16, 21, 22, and 28). I am currently almost 13 weeks (due Oct 15). I feel good--no morning sickness and relatively good energy.

I was diagnosed with PCOS (Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome), so I have to be very careful about my food intake so I don't become a type 2 diabetic. Actually, I REFUSE to become a type 2 diabetic!

I know I need to change my eating habits and start walking. Today is day 1! I have been on Sparkpeople since 2007 for various weight loss attempts. I plan to lose about 15 pounds between now and the birth. I won't stress about the weight loss since after all, I am growing a baby, but I want to make sure my sugar levels are good and I keep this thing under control.

Can't wait to be with you ladies as we embark on making our new little life!

I found out 4 weeks ago that I am expecting #2 ( I already have a 7 year old son from previous relationship & my fiance has a 7 year old daughter also). I am around 9 weeks along and I go Tuesday for my first appointment. I gained a lot of weight with my son, went from 187 lbs (already overweight) to 240 lbs at delivery!!!!!!! 53 pounds! All I did was eat and sit around... After I had my son I starved myself down to 145 lbs but of course ending up gaining almost all of it back. Jan. 2011 I weighed in at 184 and wanted to change. So for the last year I have been on Sparkpeople losing weight. Finally hit 137 lbs (lowest weight I can ever remember being!) the same week I found out I was pregnant. I swear within a week I went up to 140ish !!!! And I didn't even change my eating habits at all!!!!! My scale is possessed! This morning it said 149! I'm really hoping it is wrong and I am trying really hard not to stress but I do!!! And the more I stress the more I eat!!!

HI, I just found out I was pregnant on the 22nd. This is my second pregnancy but yet I'm scared to death on how it will be. Probably because this time around my husband is deployed and won't be back till I'm 8 months along. Also because I weigh 60 more pounds now than I did the first time I got pregnant. So I could really use all of the advice and support I can get.

Hello ladies! I am 15 weeks pregnant with my first at 40 years old. This has been a looooong time coming for us and we are thrilled, excited and nervous all at once. My first OB appointment is in two days on the 9th and I can't wait, hoping they will be able to tell us whether we are having a boy or girl.

Also cant wait to talk to the doc about resuming workouts. I was working out 3 times a week at the YMCA and walking 2-3 miles everyday when I started the IVF process and got sick from the meds. I had lost a little weight and was feeling fantastic and I want to get back to that focus and consistency I had found. I don't expect to loose weight of course but I want my gain to be controlled and I want to eat healthy nutritious foods.

I look forward to talking you you guys and much thanks to Eberkshire86 for the invitation to this group.

Welcome to the group! How soon is your appointment? It's definitely something you want to discuss with your doctor they can set you on the right track as far as eating and exercising goes but you don't want to be actively dieting while your pregnant. This early you probably won't need to add any extra calories but by your second trimester they usually say you should add an extra 300 a day. When I was dieting spark recomended between 1200-1500 calories daily when I got pregnant I just stuck around the 1500 ish I didn't really track to often I just ate when I was hungry and I ate good healthy foods. Try not to get to caught up in the whole weight thing enjoy your pregnancy!

Hi everyone! I'm 32 and pregnant with my first, due 11/13 (Is that too late to be called fall?)

I've been on a weightloss track so I'm not sure how to switch or if I even have to. I look forward to discussing that with my Dr. - meantime I'm trying to figure out what to do about my workouts - I want to keep doing them! Excited to find this group!

I really don't want to gain for this pregnancy! I guess it may be out of my hands?

There are two things to aim at in life; first to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind has achieved the second.

Hi! I am about 8 wks preggers with our first baby. I'm due anywhere from Oct. 3rd (based on LMP date) and 8th (based on u/s measurements). My DH and I are both 32. We are super excited. We just told our parents over the weekend and everyone is over the moon!

The only things that's making me feel a little anxious are:

1. We just had our dream wedding back in September 2011 and are still paying off the bills. I was hoping to pay it all off by this time next year, but with baby on the way that is not going to happen. =( Not to mention all the things we need to buy in the house to prepare for the baby...we have to furnish the guest bedroom and nursery (both rooms currently empty!)

2. I started a new job early November 2011. I will have worked for only 11 months at the new job by the time I go on leave so I'm not sure how things will turn out, especially since FMLA won't apply to me. Also I'm currently working on my annual review goals and my boss has all these goals due in Q3 and Q4 for me. I haven't told my boss yet and don't plan to for another 4 weeks or so.

Welcome and congrats! I do most of my maternity shopping at either good will or old navy I just bought some nice capris and tops for work this summer from old navy they have such cute things there. I try to buy the pants from good will cause its so much cheaper and I figure as long as I have a cute top to go with it, it won't matter. I never could wear those horrible pants that had the panel that went over your stomach it rolled down everytime I sat! I like the old navy jeans they look just like normal jeans with a stretchy waist, after my last daughter I kept wearing them for months after she was born cause they were to comfy to give up lol. As far as the swim suit goes I'm just going to wear my normal swim suit with a light cover up although I did like the one piece I seen on old navys website the other day I'm trying to keep maternity clothes spending to a minimum which will be easy since its summer and I own alot of sundresses :)

Hello ladies!! I am a 31 year old teacher who is pregnant with my first child!! I am over the moon with happiness! It took us about a year of trying and I was a week away from going to a fertility specialist and after the HSG test my dr. told me to go get to check my tubes.....BAM!! BFP!! I am due around October 20 (my mom's bday!!!) so I am a little over 5 weeks. I found out a week ago bc I was feeling nauseous and I took a test and it came up right away and I was shocked!! It's such a good feeling after about 12 months of taking tests and being let down. Congrats everyone...and thank God for maternity bathing suits!! I'm already stalking some out...slim pickings though. Where do you ladies shop for clothes for summer? I will prob get away with wearing mine and belly bands through spring hopefully...but we'll see! I have been feeling like garbage and crampy for the last few days...uggh!!

Hi, I found out I was pregnant last Sunday, so it's been a week of adjusting to the new idea. I'm really excited, but also quite nervous. This is my first baby, and my husband is out of work, hence the mixed emotions! I am having to use medi-cal, because we don't have any health insurance right now, which stinks because I haven't seen a doctor yet, and I am dying to get a ballpark on how far along I am. I have always had a pretty odd menstral cycle, so when I was a couple months late I didn't think anything about it, this is really normal for me. But, alas, this time was different, I'm late for a really good reason!!! I am really glad this team has started and I'm really looking forward to getting to know some of you, and taking this journey with you. I have been on SP for about 5 months, lost 20 pounds the first 2 months, then had some personal problems, and the holidays and gained 4 back. Now I'm at about a 9 pound gain from the original wieght lost. This bums me out a bit because I had a lot of weight to loose. But, that is OK, as long as I am eating well, and exercising throughout this pregnancy, I am happy. Hope to get to know you all! Have a great week!

Love eachother.

Hi, I'm Jo. I'm about 14 weeks with my second child which makes my due date about August 7th. I have a 6 year old girl too and she was 10 days late so I am figuring it will really be the second week of August. I started Spark last March because in between my 1st child and now I had lost 55 of the 65 pounds I gained with her but then gained 75 pounds back. I lost 12 pounds over the summer but I gained 10 pounds in the month before I conceived so I was really discouraged. But, since then I've only gained 4 pounds which is less than 1/2 what I had gained with my 1st at this point so I am just trying to be sensible. I just started swimming (now that my nausea and tiredness are finally starting to wane) and it feels really good.

**Wouldn't it be boring if we knew where life would take us ahead of time?**

Hey, my name is Danielle and I'm almost 7 weeks along with my first. I'm having a hard time not telling friends and family, so I thought I would chat about it on here :) Hubby and I decided we want to wait to tell everyone.
Scale says I've gained almost 5 lbs. already, so I'm trying to eat right. I've been craving fruits for the last month, just can't get enough!
Alright girls, lets stay healthy and have some healthy babies!!!

Hi.

I am jumping the gun a bit, but I am pregnant. I took a test today, and it was a BFP. I am 5 days before my period is due, but I have known it for at least 5 days already. I just had a feeling and I have been feeling strange for a while now. We just started trying again this month, so I am so happy.

I am 34 years old, and this will be our first baby. We have had a few miscarriages already, and last year we lost one at 11 weeks. I have strong hopes for this one and I am sure we will make it this time.

The online calculator puts me at October 13 as a due date.

I am glad that I can join this group and have a few people to go through this with.

Not currently because of the morning sickness, but it seems to be subsiding more and more every day, thank God! I think within the next week or two if I'm not too exhausted, I'll start up the treadmill half hour or so a day. I need to asap because all this food just tastes delicious - and the cravings are ridiculous - very powerful this time around - especially the sweets/sugars.. must be a girl ;)

With my first daughter I was the same weight the day I went in to deliver that I was the day I found out I was pregnant but I had gestational diabetes with her so when I found out I majorly changed my eating habits so thats why I didn't really gain anything. I did lose 15 lbs after that but then kind of stalled out I was hoping to lose at least 30 before I got pregnant again and even then I would still be overweight but o well things happen when they happen :) 15 lbs is the same limit I am hoping for as well I'm sure we can do this! Are you working out still?

Hi! Thanks for the invite to the group - it's always so nice to have a collection of people with the same situation or at least similar situation as yourself! I'm Audrey - I'm 28 and pregnant with our 4th. I'm due August 26th, but knowing my babies, I'll have him/her in September. (I keep talking to my belly and telling it that it's a GIRL) :) I have 2 boys (7 and 3.5) and a girl who is 14 months. Good news is I lost 50 pounds in 2011 - worked very hard for it. Bad news is I needed/wanted to lose an additional 50 - 80 before getting pregnant, but I guess God had other plans for me :) Hopefully I won't gain more than 15 with this one, and hoping and praying that maybe I could even lose some, although I've already gained 7 in a month!!! Anyone else hungry all the time already? Ugh...

I am Lyndsey. I am 30 and DH is 30. I am a stepmom to a wonderful 7 yr old girl and this is my first biological child. Nervous!!! I am 5 weeks. I have already put on 5 lbs without changing my eating habits. This really makes me nervous. I keep having dreams about a boy and a girl. Don't know what that means!

Welcome April! So glad to have you! I have not had a feeling one way or the other but I messed around with those gender predictors and they all say boy lol not that I don't want a boy but I have boxes and boxes of girl stuff! I'll be happy either way of course :)

My name is April and I'm 35. DH is 31. This will (hopefully) be our first. It's taken a while to get pregnant; I've been off BCP since August 2009 with a pregnancy in 2010 that ended in a missed miscarriage at 11 weeks. Super nervous about this one, but also really excited and looking forward to a healthy baby at the end.

Oh, I'm only five weeks, due around 9/22/12, but I woke up one morning and told DH that this is a boy. Anyone else have a "prediction" for their little one's sex?
