How do you get going again after pregnancy?
I'm envious of your orienteering CC - I think I would really enjoy that and I love that you can do it as a family with different levels etc!
Ooohhhh fingers crossed Caro - that would not be cool! I hope the puke fairies skip your house!
Conjunctvitus not the very contagious kind - she apparently has sinisitus and the snot/infection has gotten into her tear ducts so AB's and eye cream. She is fine otherwise so hoping no more eye gunk tomorrow and she will be off to daycare Wed! Will need an outing tomorrow though - can't cage my monkey up all day - she goes mad and is pretty grim to be around!!
EF hope you are feeling well xx
No puking yet.......
everything crossed Caro from me too!!
It's very quiet on here! Hope you're not being sick Caro. Hopefully it has missed you!
Nothing much going on here. I had my first NCT refresher today which was good. The other ladies are all a few weeks on from me, but were all very nice.
Did a 4 mile run this evening, and was pleased to "beat" (I wasn't really trying) a teenage boy up the hill on the long walk. Still very slow though, but enjoyable.
I have my midwife appt tomorrow, my first since 16 weeks. Just keeping everything crossed that they don't make a big deal out of measuring bump sizes etc like last time...
Anyway, thought I'd pop in and say hi... how are you feeling EF?!
I think banana omelette sounds quite nice RF...
Fingers crossed for no puking, Caro, I hate that waiting feeling!
Hope appt goes well Anj, exciting to get an update on bump .
Sorry just skim-read so have probably missed bits. Got out for a 5.5 mile run in the rain yesterday morning which was great, if windy! And just been to Bodypump and shoulder held up pretty well although definitely weaker than other one.
I've been in a foul mood this evening - proper TOTM . Stomped around snapping at hubby over everything (couldn't find Nicky's sock - this was clearly his fault...Soph's uniform left strewn all over the floor when she can wear it tomorrow etc) and stomped off to the gym without saying goodbye. Man I'm such a cow at this time of the month . Came back, stomped around the kitchen making beef stroganoff and have since cheered up thankfully. Poor hubby!
I do nothing but yell at Lou Caro so I'm a bad mummy too. Glad you're not puking though.
Good luck tomorow Anj.
Thank you for all the enquiries, I am ok! Nauseous today but not sure if that was really anything to do with preg or if just a bit off colour. I'm telling myself I won't have sickness until 6.5 weeks like the last times! Don't want to say I will have none or else I'll be sick with worry instead. Still peeing on a stick every couple of days. I like seeing it appear ever more quickly and ever darker! I'm buying the super super cheap ones now though!
Survived THurs - Sat in London. Those of you on FB saw my rather stressful trip down! Never had a missed landing before - never mind 2 of them!! Gulp. Got to get flight tomorrow morning at 7.05 to Cardiff. Cue 4.50am rise aaaaargh. But at least that and the fact that I can get a flight back on Wed at 1955 means that I only have one night away. The partners ' conference was actually really good. Met loads of fellow partners, had a lovely dinner, was 100% sober but still dancing. My lack of drinking was noted and commented on so a couple of partners in the Glasgow office have worked it out but don't think the head honcho clocked it. A few others from Leeds mentioned that I wasn't a very good Scot because I kept refusing wine!
I hate conjunctivitis Hoggle. Lou gets lots of eye infections and styes and it gives me the heeby jeebies. Can't stand eyes. It's the one thing that makes me want to pass out. stick needles in myself or watch someone else extract blood - no problem. Look at a close up of an eye - and it's good night!
CC the orienteering sounded great. I used to do lots of Duke of Ed award but nowadays I'd be hopeless with a map. I just seem to have lost any ability I used to have. Scary that I used to be quite happy to be responsible for 6 15 yr olds at a time out on the hills all day. Eek!
bleugh to banana omelette from me too I'm afraid RF!
And to drunken hubby. Andy had 3 glasses of wine yesterday and fell asleep on the sofa when we got home. He's such a lightweight!
Another one who spends lots of time yelling at various people, mainly kids and then hubby when he's here too - no wonder he's hardly here!
missed landings, had them once on flight back from a ski holiday, I was OK but my friend was in absolute bits. Glad the sticks are still doing their thing!!!
I used to be the same with the Scouts/Explorer Scouts out on expos and day trips - miss it lots actually. My nav and map reading is good but have always been pretty bad at trying to do it while running so you lose lots of time if you have to slow to read. Not so bad on mountain marathons as there is much more distance between checkpoints so plenty of time to suss it out. When your orienteering course is 3 km long with say 13 checkpoints it's all a bit quick!!!
LOL at the fast walk Anj, hope check goes well and they don't go OTT with the tape measure for you.
Sounds good re the shoulder JG. I am AWFUL from post-ovulation through to arrival of TOTM, so that doesn't leave much time for being nice does it!!?
Apparently it's national reading week and so Richard Lochhead (SMP) appeared in our library to hand out books to unsuspecting members of the public and have their photo taken for the paper - guess who unwittingly got roped into that. My manager asked if I'd mind having my photo taken and before I knew it was having book thrust in hand and camera in my face, so me with manky jeans (with tumeric spread down front of them) and post-run unwashed body/hair look, accompanied by my daughter who was rolling around on library floor with her skirt around her waist and legs in the air. Can't even remember what mumbo jumbo I said in response to questions, which will be printed in local paper. Oh god.
EF - my husband does that EVERY Friday night without fail.
st davids bay hotel cm so at least the hotel should be good. last time they upgradedme to a suite tho so i am preparing to be slightly disappointed!
cutting of paper to be scanned and posted cc!!
oooh, hotel envy EF, can remember looking up hotels in Cardiff for a wedding we went to when I was pregnant with J (went to 4 weddings during that pregnancy!!) and liking the look of that ... sadly we ended up in a travelodge type thingy instead ... doesn't it have a spa? although obviously you are there working so none of that fun stuff!
How old is Eric now Caro? My J weighed that when he was about 9 months old ...
Well I've taught a pilates class (a non-paying one for two people!!) and am having a quck cuppa before heading out for a run, then am helping with Js class on a walk round town this afternoon before school run and swimming
Pastry recipe - thank you, will give it a go on Thursday (designated shorter run and baking day!!) .
House inspection due today so hopefully when I am out.
Right, best get productive too
And yes Vixo, behaviour and sleep definitely related, but also those dreaded developmental/growth spurts don't help either
God, will have to check but I think my monster was 9kg a few weeks ago!
EF - just being nosey, will you be prepared if it is twins?? Feel free not to answer, don't want to tempt fate in any way.
I'm an awful yeller too if I'm tired JG and CC so that me yelling most of the time at the moment.
Aidan has had a week of antibiotics for his chest and has another 3 days worth, he had a fun time in Ireland with daddy though and I had a rest - he's a lot of work I have realised since his absence!!
