  1. Have you been starving every day? I wasn’t having cravings but somewhere around weeks 4-6 I was really hungry most days. It tapered off thankfully since I wanted to fit my clothes as long as possible. (Ha!)

    Aww yay! I look forward to reading this every week! I still drink coke, just caffeine free! I can’t remember if they have that is AUS though? My DH was laughing at me yesterday because I had my first craving I could taste! It was there Thai sweet chili chips I had when I lived in AUS! I might have to drive the 4 hours to the international market and peruse the AUS section! Get some chomps and violet crumbles! Lol

      I had a chomp on thurs on way home from work! We do have caffeine free coke but its either the fully leaded stuff or none at all for me. Dont do coffee, tea etc and the ivf clinic told me at initial meeting u must give up all forms of caffeine! So i did! 17+yr coke addiction gone- but i want one beside the bed after i give birth!

      • kastreet says:

        Haha! Yep, I gave up caffeine over a year ago (before my first IVF with my angels). I never did drink coffee or tea, but the withdraw headaches from going cold turkey were horrible! It isn’t the same, but about 2x a week I drink the CF coke. The one thing I remember about AUS coke is how sweet it was compared to the stuff here. There was something there that I would drink on occasion though that you can’t get here. I think it was called Lift maybe?

      • tazdream says:

        Lift is a lemon soft drink like club lemon or solo. Thats now my drink of choice! At this rate i will buying the shops out just for you!
