Great South Run weekend is here! Today we had the 5k run which Laura, Anne and Des took part in and all did very well, and Abi’s 1.5k Mini Run - even Jessica was enjoying running on the race track they had there and is keen to do the mini run next time round.

Now all that’s left is my one tomorrow - I’m going to be running the 10 mile Great South Run for the first time to raise money for gain. If the technology works you should be able to watch live at and you can sponsor me at . I’ll update this again tomorrow after the race!

My run went well - I really enjoyed it and there was a fantastic atmosphere around the course.  I managed to beat my target and come in with a time of 1:59:42

At last our 12 week scan arrived. It had felt like it was a really long way, but it seemed to come round quite quickly once Christmas had gone. So this evening we finally got to see our new little baby, and it was wonderful.

It had been a bit worrying initially as we couldn’t find the heartbeat with the doppler we’d rented and the midwife couldn’t find it either when she tried on Tuesday. But all the other noises were as expected.

It was really lovely to see our new little baby this evening - seemed to be quite laid back, but did roll round onto his side at one point. Still was quite different in movement to Abi, who was doing backflips at this point!
