    I was just wondering if any one has been up to the London Marathon while pregnant, or is planning on going up this year?

    I have never been but have heard about queues for toilets, too busy to move about etc etc and was just wondering how any pregnant person may have found this as I am meant to be going up on Sunday. :dohh:

    It is far enough that we have to travel by train/tube etc. OH is running it for the first time so wanted to be there, but its seriously not looking like a good idea as i can barely walk down the street without struggling. I was just wondering if there were places there i could hide out, or even sit. I must be crazy!! Maybe an early labour will save me. :rofl:

    I went to watch 2 years ago and it was mayhem. There was so many people bumping into me and everywhere was so crowded. I hope you'll be ok if you do decide to go though, maybe you could go just for a little bit?
