And this is why I have gained 21lbs at 25 weeks

I have an anterior placenta so I can't always feel bubs when s/he moves (midwife could feel baby kicking away when she did the heart beat but I couldn't feel a thing) so to get baby moving when it feels less active I have chocolate or cola to reassure myself. 15 weeks of this left!

I have gained over about 2st so far (35 weeks tomorrow).

Making sure that I had a full stomach was the only thing that helped with the 24h 'morning' sickness during the first trimester - and it had to be carbs and/or fat, soups and salads just didn't touch it.

I still feel queasy now when I get hungry, and life's too short to be tainted with unnecessary queasiness grin.
