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 had nasty cramps running over my bump and from the inside. I wasn’t scared about it because I’ve already come across this quirk of pregnancy.

Pregnancy week 19 – loving it


Ok, I protested and protested. I hated this pregnancy lark for the best part of five months but now I’ve finally grown to love it. I’m proud of the bump. I love the feeling of the Grapefruit fluttering about inside me like a butterfly or a Mexican Jumping Bean. You almost feel like you’ve imagined … Continue reading
