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. There has been hardly a moment in the past six weeks where I haven’t felt sick and uncomfortable. And now to top it off I’ve come over all emotional. I can’t sleep and that … Continue reading

Pregnancy week 7 – a tiny bit better


I’m 7 weeks and 3 days pregnant and the lentil has become a blueberry. It’s got flippers for feet and hands and it’s eyes and ears are getting more defined. Apparently the Blueberry is growing an umbilical cord too. I’m quite surprised at this because I would have thought it would need that straight away. … Continue reading

Pregnancy week 5 – Queasy


Euuuugh. Not loving this. I feel sick – I’ve felt sick all fricking day and that’s early for morning sickness – the doctor thought it might be shock. Most of the time morning sickness doesn’t arrive until week 7 or 8. The NHS Direct nurse said it was a good sign because it means the … Continue reading
