It’s taken me a while to summon the energy to start a blog about this. I’ve been thinking about it for a couple of months. Probably longer.
I have decided to write this blog as an antithesis to the general societal norm that pregnancy should be a time of celebration, that pregnant mothers should “glow”, and approach their impending motherhood with serenity, grace and poise.
My experience to date is anything but the above. It’s horrendous. If I couldn’t pee on a stick and see two lines, I’d have thought I were dying.
This blog is all about how it really is through my eyes, and to add to a growing number of voices that just because your pregnancy isn’t textbook and perfect, that you are no less of a woman, no less capable as a parent, just that pregnancy doesn’t do well with some people – particularly me.
I am currently 12 weeks pregnant with my second child. And I shall fill you in in the near future on how I have reached this point.
Until then, I shall be sitting down and attempting nothing!
