Baby 13′s Pregnancy Diary: Week 22

      I paused before I settled down to write this post in order to throw two Rennie tablets into my mouth. That, you see, pretty much summarises how this week has been – an unpleasant rollercoaster of heartburn infused with a regular, sometimes furiously urgent devouring of chalk antacids. Names haven’t been discussed… Read More

Baby 13′s Pregnancy Diary: Weeks 20 & 21

    It’s another double update this week – the reasons being two-fold.

This makes me happy. Pregnancy isn’t something that I feel I ‘do’… Read More

      Last week was a paradox of sorts – indifferently quiet on the pregnancy front yet frantically busy in every other aspect.  Intentions to update this diary were delayed hourly at first, followed by the promise of tomorrow.  As you can tell, tomorrow never came… well, until today that is, and so the… Read More
