“Will you have another one?”

What I wanted to say – “None of your bloody business.”

What I actually said – “I’m still pregnant! Let me push this one out first and see how we get on with it!”

Nearly at the end of my pregnancy…

The out of office message is on. Everything I know has been brain dumped to my replacement. I’m on maternity leave and it’s such a surreal feeling!

Pregnancy cravings – the weird and wonderful!

The cravings have actually been on a relatively normal side for me. Luckily I’ve had no sickness, just mild nausea in the evenings, and a significant drop in appetite overall. I’ve never been a big eater and prefer small meals but now, while being pregnant, I find it really difficult to finish my dinners. My husband finishes them for me and he’s probably growing with me too! 🙁 Continue reading “Pregnancy cravings – the weird and wonderful!”
