After suffering through last week as best I could, I then had to go to Paris for the weekend. Normally this would have been excellent but no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t shake the nausea!
I felt so tired.
My Mum and Dad came over to stay with the in laws to celebrate Chinese New Year with the entire clan and I should have been helping to entertain them but instead I just slept for three days. Rubbish.
I was so fed up by the end of it. Everyone is so kind but I just wanted to be in my own bed, looking after myself – it’s hard to be a guest and sick!
Anyway come Tuesday, back at work, I made a dramatic and miraculous recovery!
Since then Week 16 has been a breeze. Chuck bought me two new maternity tops in Paris and suddenly I feel blooming and elegant(ish) again!
I’ve been taking care of myself this week. Full body moisturiser every day, warm bath on Tuesday night, Pregnancy yoga on Wednesday night and a Pregnancy massage from my friend Betty on Thursday morning.
I had my 16 week midwife check-up and heard the heartbeat again.
And today is Friday, my 31st birthday. Chuck made me breakfast in bed, lovely boy. He even got croissants from the patisserie.
