I usually run 2-3 times a week, between 3-8miles each run, and I am wondering whether this is sensible whilst ttc.

What I am worried about is that the egg will not 'stick' if i run at the crutial time. I hope this makes sense, i'm not really into the technical terms but am really thinking about the time between ovulation and arrival (or hopefully not) of AF!!!

Having really overindulged over the christmas holidays I really want to continue running, however not if it is reducing my ttc chances

What do you think ladies??

I would say this was fine - you are not doing huge mileage and if your periods are normal and regular then there's no issue. I don't think that a bit of running will stop egg sticking - it's in a closed environment and jumping up and down will not move it around!! Also, remember that running is what human beings are designed to do, and only elite athletes would run enough to mess up normal reproductive help.

Good luck!

Keep on running.

I've carried on running throughout ttc. I don't think it will stop a bean sticking. And I have friends who continued running throughout ttc and up to about 5 months pregnant and all was well.

On a more general note, you might be ttc for a while (I'm on my 27th cycle now) so I'd urge you not to put your life on hold while you are trying.

yes, running will help keep you sane.
