Pregnancy week 8 – full of cold


I feel horrendous. The cold I thought I’d deftly avoided with two days in bed has reappeared with vengeance. I’m 8 weeks pregnant and I feel like the opposite of a healthy, glowing, nurturing mother.

Pregnancy week 8 – hating it


Being eight weeks pregnant hasn’t endeared me to the process. I’m utterly hating it. I hate feeling nauseous all the time.

Last night we went to Chuck’s cousin’s house for dinner and I told everyone I was on antibiotics because of an ear infection It’s awful to say things like that. I … Continue reading

According to the pregnancy apps on my phone I am six weeks pregnant! Half way through my first trimester. I feel sick. All day. Fortunately I haven’t been sick but constant nausea seems to be something I’m stuck with. Nothing helps relieve it but certain things make it worse. I have a superhero style sense … Continue reading
