!!!HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

We will be doing a big fat exciting NOTHING as everyone is sick and I'm big as a house - one of those really big ones in the 'burbs. HUGE y'all.

And so is the baby. I'm 35 weeks and yesterday at my apt, I was measuring 40. Heaven help me. The doc kept saying, "That baby is HUGE. That is going to be a nine pound baby IF YOU ARE LUCKY" - oh. Well. Great. So next week doc and I are going to have a serious discussion about options. Wish me luck. I'm TERRIFIED.

Hope everything is great with all of you guys!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!



I'm full of a cold and look like this......

Feel awful and might not make it to midnight.

Brandy, try not to worry too much. I worried about what might have been, Natty was nearly 8lbs and THREE WEEKS EARLY!!!! Dom was 9lbs 9oz, and 24 inches long! Mind you I had c-sections for both, so I guess it was easier on my body than having them naturally. You'll be fine. Ooooh I'm so excited for you

Right, I'm going to go have some more cold capsules, a glass of diet coke and relax a while.

Happy new year, everyone
Love
Jo

Oh poor Jo! Feel better! You guys have that wonderful Day Nurse and Night Nurse stuff - so awesome for colds.

We ended up having a few people over last night but nothing huge. We played some board games and things and just had a generally low key evening. I've been up for all of fifteen minutes and am seriously considering going back to bed. I think my mom is expecting us for lunch. Wonder if she can move it back till three or so?

Well I ended up with a chest infection. Went to two ice hockey games on NYE and NYD, and although I dressed warm, Alan is convinced I made myself worse by going to the games.

Couldn't go to the docs until Tuesday, but am now on a dose of penicillin, and hopefully should be able to sleep soon. The biggest problem is that I have exams next week and haven't started revising yet.

Hope everyone is doing ok.

Hey all!

Happy New Year to you. Things have been fairly standard. Busy and hanging in there by the skin of my teeth. I've signed up for the 60 km Breast Cancer Walk in July, so have a bit of external motivation to get me going this year. Started back at the gym on Tuesday and have managed to get a good program from the trainer there, so I think I'll be doing ok. I do need new shoes so will get those in the next few weeks.

Jo...remember, you don't have to be dead to defer. Ask for an extension on your exam.

Brandy...worry not. I measured big the whole way along in my pregnancy. At 15 weeks, I measured 20 and the Dr. was convinced I was having twins (until he saw the Ultrasound). Erik was born on his due date at 8 pounds 5 oz. You'll be fine darling! Maybe you'll even go early.

Nichola...you are NOT as big as a house. Not even a condo. You can do it!

Raff...hope you're doing well out there!

Did I miss anyone? Sorry if I did!

Lorraine

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a good New Year's Eve. Jo, sorry to hear you've not been well ... Hope you feel better soon and good luck with your exams!

Brandy, don't worry, you're going to be fine, and when you're holding that little bundle in your arms for the first time, you'll realise that no other feeling compares to it ... everything will be worth it!

Lorraine, good for you, you've already made a great start to the new year, keep up the good work

Well, my parents are here for a few more days ... they will be leaving on Tuesday. It hasn't been too stressful as they've been happy to go out and about a lot on their own. But a month is still a long time to have visitors stay and we're all looking forward to getting our own space back again if you know what I mean!!

I'm sick of all the meals we've been having out ... I'm actually looking forward to starting a proper plan ... can't believe that I'm sick of eating ... and drinking! I'll be weighing in on Monday to see what damage I've done over the hols but keeping my fingers crossed that it won't be too bad!! Then I'm going to start walking regularly again which I'm also looking forward to. I'm feeling so uncomfortable right now. Dad had some photos developed a few days ago and I must confess that they were the worst I've ever seen of myself ... absolutely shocking!! ... Can't beleive that I look so huge ... I mean HUGE!!!! And everyone back home is going to see them! Well, I'm determined to surprise everyone when I visit the UK this summer by being fit and slim!!

Wish me luck!

Nichola

It was my first day back at work today and I feel exhausted ... not used to getting up so early in the mornings ... I'll have to have an early night tonight!

Weighed-in this morning and I'm very pleased to say that I haven't gained over the hols ... in fact, I'm 2.5lbs down since the last time I weighed myself when mom & dad arrived, so I can't complain at all. Don't know how on earth I managed it because I've eaten everything in sight!! Anyway, started my new life today and I'm feeling very determined and positive

Fantastic start Nichola!!!

It was my first day back at uni. I've been so miserable all holidays and ready to quit. First day back, first exam. Went ok-ish I think. Two exams tomorrow on property law, then two on Civil Litigation on Wednesday and two on Business Law on Thursday. Don't think I'll be around much from today until the end of the week.

I HATE THIS COURSE!!!

Jo, hang in there, it'll all be worth it in the end

Mom & Dad have departed today ... I hate goodbyes I've come home to emptyness today, it feels so strange. I guess I'll get used to it again soon though

Mom has finally decided to do something about her weight too, so I'll have a bit of competition, and also two other relatives are dieting ... one has already lost 28lbs by doing it herself, and the other has started back at WW with a 13lbs gain since October! Mom weighed herself here and it was a coincidence to discover that she was exactly the same weight as me ... even down to the last half pound! However, I did have to point out to her that she is shorter than me so therefore fatter!!

Hope everyone else is ok ... Brandy, Lorraine, Raff ... and anyone else out there who might be lurking

For some reason my signature with my weight tracker has disappeared? I've checked my 'User CP' and it's still there and saved ... any ideas??

Ok, problem solved ... I'm not going crazy!! I saw an announcement on the site saying that signatures will now only appear on your first post on each page as they are taking up a lot of room and cause browsing to be a little slow. There's going to be a poll to see what people prefer ... personally, I think it would be better to have your signature shown on your last post rather than the first of each page as people tend to look at the latest posts rather than go back to the beginning of the page ... important when you've updated your weight loss tracker I think.

N, I'm with you. It makes more sense that your sig would show up in your most recent post. Who scrolls back to the old ones? Ok, well me - but I'm trying to catch up.

Ok, thought I had time to catch up but looks like I miscalculated. Another doc apt today, another u/s (Mark gets to come to this one, he's pretty excited), and who knows. I am HUGE and TIRED and SWOLLEN like heck. I can not wait to have this baby, heal up, get my fat self back on any kind of diet (any at all!) and start walking. I feel like a big lump!

Take care!
B
