Lots of goings on here

Hoggle - great news. I hope it all goes well. I haven't tried anything for sickness but I feel for you, its horrible. Hope it passes soon. I remember water making me feel sick and not being able to sleep. No fun but worth it.

Thanks for the vlm reminder. I have entered myself and hubby. Now I will wait for the rejection magazine!

Sonya - glad the scan was OK.

TT - its so hard to chose stuff for your house. I struggled when we did our flat and found magazines little help as their articles were always people spending a fortune. I actually looked at places on right move for inspiration. Its real houses done up on real budgets. Might help?

Tangy - I so feel your frustration. I am v similar. I had more success following a paleo diet whilst marathon training last year. I found I was more full/satisfied on less and was surprised that I could lose weight and still have energy to train. When I followed the tradition carbs type low fat diet, I used to crash and burn on long sessions. I also find that I can't use my calories earned, for example if I supposedly burn 500 cals on a run, if I ate them, I would put on weight. I am doing a paleo diet now. 8kgs down, just over 14 to go. Long slog...

A few people have been talking about speech issues. My daughter (now 3.3) had some speech issues. At her two yr check she was in the bottom 20% for her age. We were referred to a speech therapist and had 4 child/parent sessions to help us to help her. Worth pushing for if anyone is worried. They were useful. Her speech is still behind so many her age but she is improving all the time. Its not nice to be worried about it though.

Talking of my 3 yr old, she is really cross with me at the moment. I am sure it is because of the baby. She loves him but is sometimes quite aggressive with me, pushing me (she is quite a mild mannered child mostly) and saying things like "mummy can't come" when we go anywhere or "mummy naughtey". I need to spend some one on one with her but its hard when breastfeeding (he does take a bottle but I bf during the day). I am going to try and take her for a few hours on Friday whilst the baby sleeps. Any advice gratefully received as, although expected, its upsetting.

I am 6 weeks post baby today. Gp check this morning!


Downhill PB - Do they count?

i think the GNR cant count in world records due to the fact that its downhill (doesnt feel like it though)

Pregnant runners

btw people talk utter drivel about exercise and pregnancy.  if someone tells you not to run/gym/body pump etc ask them to quote the science behind their claims.  That works.  I once had someone tell me that i was probably struggling to get pregnant as i ran 3x a week!!

cc - you sound v busy!

caro - so pleased your staycation has been great.  Its always a gamble in the uk but great if its nice.  Enjoy fish and chips.

tt - funny you know my sister (who i moaned about on here! lol)

EF - those malt bunnies rock.  I started on creme eggs and easter bunnies on jan 1st (i always do) but have managed to stay away for the past few weeks since i has I.

Another lovely day here and another long walk.  i think i did about 7.5 miles today.  i met a friend for lunch and then mooched about on clapham common.  Mr pip out tonight for the first time since isaac was born. i hope he has a nice night as he has been a great help (most of the time!}.  No doubt he will roll in v drunk and late.  Luckily we are in seperate rooms at the moment until isaac sleeps through/better.

i have been good and done my physio exercises each day.  it feels nice to do some gentle core stuff.  i am 6 weeks on tues.  i have my gp check up at 9am.  Keen, me?!

TT - send me your email address and I will send them on. These first ones are at four weeks. I have another appt on Tues which will be six weeks so I should have some more to share.

Tb - glad weaning is going well. I remember struggling to get mine to drink water at all. If a cup works then great. 

Happy easter everyone!

Hey soswalker welcome and congrats on Oliver. I had a little boy 5 weeks ago. I had a c section so need to be more careful but my physio gave me some gentle core exercises. I have another appt next week to get some more. I have them on email if you want me to forward them on to you. They might be a bit easy though...

Well done Camlo

Caro - great week for a break. Enjoy the cake etc. I am still being good as I have to get in swimwear on holiday in six weeks. My weight is coming down but v slowly and slower than I think it should. Only 16 more KGS to go!!! ( pls no one tell me how many stones that is as KGS feel more manageable). My fault for eating everything in sight whilst pregnant

Another lovely day today. I feel a long walk coming on. My 3 yr old is with my mum for the week. My mum runs a riding stables so its a 3 yr olds dream hang out.
