Thanks for the congrats. and Thanks ploddingalong.

Getting nervous about how I will cope with 2..but hey its not like I'm the first mother to have 2 kids eh! I take my hat of to you MM and Hetty..I dont know how ye do it!

Hetty if you're broody for another baby......A friend of mine is pregnant with baby number 4....she has a 4 yr old.....2 yr old twins..... Rather her than me I think!!! 

Watched that programme Bringing up baby God that woman should be shot..leaving a crying baby outside for 4 hrs!

Plodding along How is it that the men are much more relaxed than us about listening to the baby cries.. I just cant bear it

Hello all

I'm jealous of you all sending applications for FLM. Might be a while before I do another marathon. I'm due baby # 2 on 4th there will be 20 months between them. Absolutely delighted.  I barely feel pregnant at all. except for the tiredness..much worse this time energy for running at all!

We're also in the process of moving to Northern Ireland..hubby got a we hope to be in Belfast within next few weeks.

Ploddingalong is it you thats from N.I? In Portsmouth we only get 1 scan at 16 wks..and am not sure what the story in Belfast is? Any ideas? I'm just afraid I might miss out on my scan with the move..

Mrs O..bananas did terrible things to Conor..poor thing..but he seems to have gotten over it now.

DCM good to see you back on the forum. 

Minks I found that Conor would not tolerate chicken at all...until recently..he would only eat fish and veg.... He loves his chicken now though.

OK back to packing! the joys !

 Happy runnings all!

knee pain

Hi there
I was wondering if anyone could help..
I'm back running once or twice a week after roughly 10 months not running(stopped running when roughly 3 mths pregnant)

For the last few weeks..I've had a painful left knee for the first 5 minutes of each run.. I feel like my knee cap is going to pop out..and I try and hold it..but the strange thing is that it stops being painful after 5 minutes and I can continue my run without any discomfort at all.I also have no discomfort after my run.

Come to think of it I've actually noticed this pain when i do some of my pilates exercises too.. and an odd time when I'm coming down stairs first thing in the morning

Does it sound familiar to anyone??
I'm going to make an appointment to see Dr next I really cant face the prospect of this pain every time I go for a run

Pre pregnancy I havent suffered with this at I'm slightly puzzled.. Any help would be really appreciated

new york marathon - how good !

Fantastic atomsphere..Support is amazing. From what I remember bridges were the only unsupported section.

Agree that the wait for the bus to get to the start is a Pain with a capital P....and queing for the toilets for hours at the start..torture.My feet were sore b4 I even started running !

But..all in all a great experience.

Went for dinner afterwards wearing my medal..practically the whole restaurant stopped me to congratulate me...I felt like I had won gold in the Olympics !

Lucky you, and Enjoy every minute !

Hi Astrorunner
Re sleep.. We dont have trouble putting him down to sleep most of the time..
We have been following the baby whisperer...and she says follow baby as soon as we see the baby yawn/rub his eyes we know we have to put him down. When we do put him down..we just sing "twinkle twinkle" once or twice..put his mobile on.. and then leave him in his cot..and he is usually asleep within 5 mins.
He is used to this routine now and he is tired at the exact same times every night and knows its going to sleep time once Twinkle twinkle starts.
(Even for naps during the day we follow the same routine and it works a treat)

There have been times when we missed the window(his yawning/rubbing eyes)and rather than put him down then(when he is overtired/cranky etc), we play with him for a few mins..make sure he's in good form..smilling etc..and then we put him down..and he's fine.(we may have to sing twinkle twinkle a few more times, but he usually nods off by himslf)

We have been lucky in that he has always been a good sleeper tho

Best of luck with it.It just takes time to figure out what works for you and your baby

Hi there
Glad to see this thread has been set up. Like the rest of you..I cant keep up in the pregnant runners thread anymore...

Am struggling to get out running at all these days :-(
OH now works away from home during the I only get to go running at the w-e..which I suppose is better than nothing. The most I've run is 6 miles..and boy is it fantastic to be out there.

Conor is 9 1/2 months now already ! Getting used to the working Mum life now has taken me a while.. It is a huge adjustment..but I've realised organisation is the key !

Janie best of luck with the Graduation !!
and Happy runnings all !!!
