Glad you got some physio this morning Caro and it sounds like she could be a good person to talk to.
I am also so glad I am not pregnant. I had babies in Jan and March and I was disgustingly hot throughout winter, god knows what I would have been like with a summer pregnancy! I hope all you ladies are ok.
Sonya, if you need a c section, i recovered pretty quickly after mine and was driving before 6 weeks and most people I know did too. The issue with driving is that you need to be able to do an emergency stop. I called my insurance company and said I was ok to do one and they were fine with me driving. I think I might have said earlier, but if given the choice again (and no more babies for me, i wish i could have had my tubes tied!), i wouldnt hesitate to have a c section. Also, i hope you get the house situation sorted. Try and be philosophical and only get stressed/worry about what you can control. The rest will be what it is.
I had my 3 hours off today as baby Isaac went to the childminder so i went to Richmond park on my bike and did just over 40k. My legs are tired now and I have a race (sprint tri) on Sunday so i will take it easy for the next few days. I sold my Abingdon marathon place today as i had a think about it and it's too soon for me. It's 13 weeks away and I probably would just have got injured but if I made it, I would probably just run a time that i wouldnt be happy with so why do it? I would sooner concentrate on getting a good base, not getting injured and getting my speed back and go for it at Brighton next year.
Talking of wrapping babies up, Isaac has been in a vest day and night for ages. I saw a baby in the park the other day wrapped in a massive blanket and it was 27 degrees. I did wonder if i should say something but the mum was in a big group and looked a little scary...
Ttid - glad you got to put your feet up, even if it meant going to the doctors to do it.
Minks - well done on your race
I hope all you Scots are enjoying the CW games. The first day has been fab.
