Active Pregnancy and Braxton Hicks contractions

So, I am now officially half way! Ye! How does my activity look? Things I can do and actually do on a regular basis are: Walk – I am generally hitting between 2 and 5 miles a day. Climb – this has been less frequent admittedly, but does still happen (indoors and out, bouldering and…

Pregnant Outdoor Instructor

“You can’t do that” possibly the most common thing I have been told since getting pregnant. Today on my “I can bloody well do that” list I went gorge walking in the Ceunant area on Afon Prysor so I could see where my husband has been working, but also so I could do some ML…

Running – how’d it go?
