On the plus side having a happy go lucky toddler who really doesn’t understand morning sickness has it’s positives, it’s difficult to wallow in self pity when she’s standing behind you as you are reintroduced to your breakfast, shouting “come dance with me mummy it’s party time”
I've also noticed I'm much bigger, much earlier this time round, I'm already cracking out the maternity jeans as I can barely contain my chub in my regular jeans. It may also have something to do with the fact that I am currently taking grazing to a whole new level and will pretty much eat all day if I can but I’m standing by the excuse this is a very big baby!
All in all it’s been a pretty happy and healthy 3 months but I am certainly looking forward to the promised land of boundless energy, no sickness and glowing skin which the second trimester so confidently promises, however I have a sneaking feeling those promises are not made by a tired mother with a full time job, an hour commute into London and a 2 year terrorist hijacking her sleep! That said I will try to be optimistic, bring on the next 3 months!
I do plan to do a separate blog on some of the aspects of pregnancy that have got me thinking this time round such as the endless list of forbidden foods and the impossible task of shopping for maternity jeans but for now I’ll just leave you with this...... Baby Pip.
