I love being pregnant. Especially after the nausea eases up and there are months of quietly carrying a bouncy baby in my tummy.

Certain things about pregnancy I won’t miss though:

  1. Nettle tea.
  2. Leg cramps.
  3. Being awake for hours during the night without a baby to cuddle.
  4. Not being able to bend my legs properly to put shoes on.
  5. The warm-up hip rocking required before I can walk when I’ve been lying down.
  6. Nine months of nasal congestion.
  7. Occasionally waking up on a wet pillow because I’ve been sleeping with my mouth open (see no. 6 above). J

Any day now, baby. 🙂
