  • Congrats LITS, hope the midwife app goes well!   There used to be a pregnant runners thread but it did get a bit quiet so this one has always been good as a back up as there are quite a few of us who have had kids and continued running.  I should …
  • I also did a very smug 5 mile run up the hill here and averaged 9.17min miles - was so chuffed.  This time last year I was having to walk up the worst of it and all my miles were sub 10min and the one coming down was 8.20 which averaged my splits ni…
  • Nessie - can't believe you were nearly 44 when you had your second, I'm 41 now and really could not face pregnancy now but then I've got three to deal with so obviously that clouds the picture!!!  If someone could do the whole carrying bit I'd happi…
  • Hi Trigirl - I'd say if you think you want to start trying then just do it as it may take a little while to conceive and you can keep training up until then.  I think most of us found we could train for longer and get fitness back fairly easily afte…
  • I know it is daft to worry, it just seems to be one of those things that niggles with me and then they are fine when it comes to it! Good luck on your run BP! Poor lamb Camlo, well done on the bike ride though! 
  • Urgh - could probably not cope very well with cockroaches - ewk! B is the same when he grumpy - nothing is right and its all wrong and he's going to make sure she all know about it!  Its tiring! I'm in that phase of thinking he will totally not …
  • I think it must be the age BP - mine is also being a bit of a nightmare!  He was being aggressive at play school last week, then was having a huge melt down on the way home and the whole street heard it, and he's been like that on and off for a coup…
  • Hi Nessie, my step mum has had them and they have been very painful, she has ended up in a&e twice for painkillers.  Hope its not that x
  • I'm pretty sure that kind of diet is not being discussed for children here, I suppose most people might still consider a diet excluding sugars and carbs a bit bespoke?!?  A dentist I saw said to avoid fruit snacks and use breadsticks/cheese instead,…
  • Yes, Its the Monks/Monkey bit that gets me confused with the name!!! Camlo - the prob I have is evenings and dumping hubby with the kids as he is away in the week so would love to join a club and do more racing but not sure how I would fit it in! …
  • Ooh Cotswold 226 - fond memories of Ashton Keynes Camlo - my best friend is from there and her wedding was there and I was bridesmaid.   Have realised I'm getting tall bird and Monkeyrunner mixed up for the Hereford race - oops!  
  • Yes Camlo!  Did you enter the September Running/Bike thing?  I think Monkey Runner entered x  
  • Eww to threadworm TT - hope you can get the meds easily. Well we had a nice time at Malvern however it would be easier without small children. Slightly disappointed that you have to pay so much to get in as lots of it is all about them selling you…
  • I agree, I barely make sense about normal day to day stuff so would probably say the wrong thing too.  Aidan was sick at school yesterday, unfortunately as they witnessed him vomit they are insisting he is off for 48 hours.  Am slightly annoyed as…
  • Ouch Camlo - that sounds so painful - I'm pretty sure I couldn't stick at it - well done!!  We saw cyclists up on the Chilterns in miserable weather - some of the puddles were massive - I'd have stayed home (wimp!). Caro - think your hair looks go…
  • Plus having done it once I'm sure repeats aren't something to look forward too - hope all is fine xxx
  • Aw well done Minks!  Am sure its frustrating to be so close to your pb over that distance but they are both outstanding times! Hi Blossom Possum, my youngest is 3 in June and I have finally got back to running regularly since he has been at play s…
  • Virtual Hugs CC - sounds rubbish.   Did a girly 'eek' in the garden today as I moved the (classy) bit of carpet on the top of the compost bin and a wee brown mouse ran away!  I did wonder why I was feeling a bit wrecked too and then remembered I s…
  • Maybe do the good old fashioned thing and do a list of pro's and con's CM see if that helps, perhaps for each scenario?  I suppose from the perspective I think N sounds like a helpful and kind person so that is good, but perhaps when you total it up…
  • CC - so rubbish that he is in denial, thinking of you lots.  Try and eat, it will help your brain construct better arguments! xx CM - hope you are okay too.   Seems to be a week of not great news, my brothers friend's baby was born this week but…
  • Hah, is that a bit like Jeremy Clarkson saying he was stressed because there was a possibility he had cancer which is why he punched someone!!! I really didn't like my last pregnancy and the thought of massive boobs, heartburn, constipation and my…
  • Wah!  Not from me!!! Have def reached my limit!
  • Thanks for the tips - will ask my friend to be on standby, am hoping it will be just a brief consult and then possibly a mammogram if they decide its necessary.  Catch 22 as I don't want to stimulate my nipples to see if I am still lactating and sti…
  • I was trying to fit my appointment in around B being at play school but I am wondering whether to just take him with me Caro and not have to stress about picking him up?  My appointment  is in Hereford which is at least 30 mins from play school/home…
  • Am going to the breast clinic next Thurs TT, thanks for asking!  The test just showed that the expressed fluid wasn't infected which I was fairly sure of anyway. Doc not worried but agreed to double check it.
  • Yes hugs from me too CC - hope you can resolve things amicably although am sure it must be very worrying on both sides regarding the future which might be why horrible things are being said.  xx Have entered a 10k race!  Not sure when the last tim…
  • Exactly CM - not in Russia but bad enough in London.  We got a lift back home with the bin men once!! Not sure what I can say to Martha to hopefully make her wary of ending up in situations that could go awfully wrong.
  • So sorry to hear school places are not available Pip - can't remember where you are based?  Hopefully things will change once places are accepted etc (we were offered a place in Surrey after we moved which we obv declined straight away). EF - am s…
  • I'm still doing the high fat diet, trying to stick to 4 days a week with 3 eating carbs and some sugar.  Have found it pretty affective, still under 10 stone and have stuck around 9st10lb which is basically the half stone I was always wanting to los…
  • I enjoyed the Twilight books JG - its a good story, and decent writing! Frenchi - do loads of pelvic floor and see if there is an improvement, otherwise probably see your gp and see what they recommend. Caro - don't suppose they have a filing ca…
