Dad is now cycling 7-8 miles without problems, and beginning a swimming regime as well. He has noticed that he has stopped losing weight so quickly, which I am putting down to the muscle building up. He looks a lot slimmer than he has done for years and has a brighter attitude.
My sister-in-law is gaining weight rapidly, approaching the birth of their first child. Her mother says she also grew very big, and the rest of us are taking guesses as to whether the shape of her bump is now more ‘boy’ than ‘girl’. They are preparing the nursery and furniture, so it is an exciting stage now.
