You shouldn`t be eating for 2 honey, babies don`t need any extra food until the third trimester, when they say to have 300 calories extra and of course that amount of calories again when you are breastfeeding. Don`t worry about not eating a lot, the baby will take all the nutrients it needs from the food you do eat

Yeh you don't need to be eating for 2, that's a myth.

I suffered with bad morning/daytime/nighttime sickness during my first trimester and now that it's stopping, I still don't have much of an appetite. I think I'll enjoy a pasta dish or something but when it comes to actually eating it, I have a few mouthfuls and that's it.

As far as I'm aware the baby is growing well so the sickness and loss of appetite hasn't affected it.

I guess I'll find out more when I have my 2nd scan, can't wait to find out what I'm having xx

That's what my mum keeps saying enjoy everything while he's not around but I'm bored, I keep waking up in the night so my brain must be getting ready lol.

I enjoy being pregnant, I have a great glow to myself, it's just I'm bored constantly, I love being on the go and to slow right down is killing me. I know I should get a hobby or focus back on my beauty career but I haven't got the motivation in me at present.

And another thing, I have gone off my food, except pub dinners or chocolate, everything else just tastes so bland, I should be eating for two and I'm eating probably less than what I did when I wasn't pregnant, any of you ladies had that?



I so feel the same, I feel like I am border line hyperactive at the minute and I need to keep my mind active.....so I have taken it upon myself to write a business plan to keep my mind active and walking a mile at least a day to keep my body active and the fresh air seems to help.

My midwife said just to eat what I want when I want and hasn't moaned about me not eating enough (mind I aint told her, I am skeptical of telling health professionals anything to be honest) or too much yet. I worry about not eating "5-a-day" as I only eat 3 a day if that simply because I don't buy fruit or vege that is out of season where possible as it is pumped full of rubbish to keep it fresh when imported

Second scan is the best! I loved it and it's amazing how much they grown! And to think a new life inside you, it's just mad!

Have you thought what you would prefer?

We all wanted a boy, so I was worried if they said girl but we are having a little boy, first in my family for a while
*dont let go of something you cant go a day without thinking of* <3

My 2nd scan is next Friday, so I'm looking forward to that

I'm wanting a girl if I'm honest as my younger sister had a boy in October, but I'll be happy with either really, as long as it's healthy.

Got loads of bits and bobs already, going to start on the nursery once we know what we're having.

Exciting times!! xx

I think you need to ensure you're getting your vitamins and minerals as the baby will grab lots of them from your body. This can have negative effects on the mother as your bones and teeth get weaker. When my sister was pregnant with her second she had a molar shatter due to lack of vitamins and minerals. Fortunately she had it replaced with a porcelain one for free via the NHS.

I understand the feeling, i was so desparate to do something when i was pregnant, I was living in my mums pub at that time too hearing all the "fun" downstairs but never feeling in the mood to socialise when you know you cant drink and your supposed to be relaxed etc and went from dancing and modelling abroad flying from a dancing job in Turkey and back to Italy to discover there I was almost 3 months pregnant unplanned and had to start there fly back home leave london where Id had a good career for 3 years and move back in with mum after separating from that partner I found that having a couple of my close friends around really helped one in particular had a 4 year old daughter and helped me so much! advice on stuff for baby and stuff for us to do we socialised a lot and had many lunches and dinners and cafe stops for cakes and tea! we went shopping for nice maternity clothes regularly went to the salon etc and kept myself looking nice cheered me up a lot and I then met my current partner at 6 months pregnant I tried to use spare time to plan for when Sonny arrived (my son) but was impossible to, I more just brainstormed what I would like to happen and plans for the first year especially with work etc too, try not to spend too much time on things like facebook because that used to get me down watching what everyone else was doing etc at the end of the day it is brag book so dont read so much into whats on there, ante natal classes were helpful and walking a lot was good , i really wanted to shoot when i was pregnant but just never found the time in the end or the right person to shoot it so if you could do that and capture your baby growing I would because I missed that!!! I had Sonny Valentines day 2012 (he will be 1 this thursday) at 42 weeks pregnant naturally and weighed just short of 10LB at 9.15 and a half lol i never got stretch marks until my 40th week but they have faded now im tinier than i have ever been at a size 6 and im busier now as a model than i was when i was in London and i think its Having my Son that gives me the motivation and determination which has got me to this point now and im happier than I have ever been!so dont panic and think worst is worst!I am here to say even if you are bored stressed and panicky it will all be fine! having a child is the best feeling in the world and now he has start saying MUM its priceless!
