Sat here with my last bottle of wine for at least the next 2 years, I am thinking is this such a good idea? I mean I still have New Years eve to get through..surely that is a good enough excuse, if any, to get plastered. The mother in me says “No can do Jen, it won’t be good for your baby to be. Continue to drink if you want to rot in hell and feel guilty for the rest of your pregnancy. If you would prefer to do it right this time then pack it in!”.

So I have my Sanatogen pre-natal’s at the ready and take my first lot tomorrow morning. We had originally agreed to ttc on the 1st  January but unfortunately, it being my last chance to gorge this crimbo, I have put on a whole stone in the space of a month. To be fair, I have been trying to consume all of the crap food in the house so that it is gone and I won’t be tempted. Now I’m going to have to get this stone off before we ttc, I couldn’t bare it if I got preggers before I was back to my normal 9 stone. With Harry we only got to try twice and that was it. I had only just stoped taking my pill too. I put on a wopping 3 stone and it took me a whole year to shed so I’d like to give myself a fighting chance this time round. I plan on interval running on our treadmill every day for at least 40 minutes while Harry has his nap. Healthy eating too…a maximum of 1,200 calories should do it don’t you think? I’m not really sure what is a healthy amount? I’m guessing if I start running before we ttc then I should be able to keep it up throughout the pregnancy. Hmmm, not really sure if it would be safe to do that though, you know, in the first 3 months….I would really love to hear what you think or what you did to prepare your body for pregnancy.



  1. Month 9 of pregnancy…

  2. In Month 9, you should definately expect to feel very tired! The baby is putting on fat stores quickly and you will feel drained and apprehensive about the birth. The last 4 weeks seem to go on the longest so there are some things you can do to prepare your body for the birth like going for gentle walks, getting as much rest as you can and making sure you have your hospital bag packed!
