Pregnancy week 26 – Babymoon


I decided ages ago that we needed a Babymoon. A short break, just me and Chuck, before the baby arrives. I picked Corfu as I figured it was south enough to be fairly warm but only three hours flying time away. I managed to find a ridiculously cheap deal on Teletext and even though it … Continue reading

Pregnancy week 24 – Alien


I’ve only seen something like this once before… on Alien. When the thing bursts forth from Sigourney Weaver’s belly. My daughter has developed enough strength in her little fists and feet to make tiny portions of my stomach jump from the outside. I’m told that in a few weeks I’ll be able to discern exactly … Continue reading

Pregnancy week 22: twinges and shimmers


I can’t really describe this weird feeling I’m getting at the moment. Basically there’s this new roll of fat above my bump and under my boobs and now and again I get this odd shimmery, twingey feeling – like a fast fluttering in just one little area or another on this new roll.

Pregnancy week 21 – round ligament pains

I’ve rarely had such a crisis in style and self esteem. Pathetic really! I wasn’t sure … Continue reading

Pregnancy week 20 – it’s a…


It’s the end of pregnancy week 20. It’s been a good week! It’s the half way point!!! Only another 18 to 22 weeks to go. On Monday we had our 20-week scan at Chelsea and Westminster hospital. I’ve been 100% convinced that I was carrying a boy. I’ve no idea why. Just a feeling. Maybe … Continue reading

Pregnancy week 19 – HypnoBirthing


It’s the end of week 19 and I’m exhausted! One because I stayed up until 2am last night partying – loads of fun! Two because it’s Fashion Week and that means 10-11 hour days of non-stop work all weekend!!!! As I can’t be on my feet all day, I’ve been managing the back office stuff. … Continue reading
