Apparently (according to What to Expect) I am currently carrying a Sweet Potato around inside me. There has been some debate within the AOW team as to how big the average sweet potato actually is – Aisling cooked one last week that made roast AND mash potato for two people, which seems fairly large considering I’m not even half way through growing this baby yet. As Lucy said, “Hello C-Section”.
A Sweet Potato does seem like a significant upgrade from what I was apparently carrying last week though – I’m not sure that I was that happy having my baby referred to as a Turnip.
In other baby related news, it seems like I am now out of worst of the morning-sickness and general why-do-people-ever-do-this-more-than-once feelings, which is a relief. I’m pretty sure that if pictures of me from that time were put up around schools and youth groups across the country, teen pregnancy rates would dramatically drop. I was a pretty good advert for contraception at the time.
Thank you to every single one of you who tweeted, commented and emailed me to see how I was doing – I am now well out of the pathetic-and-feeling-sorry-for myself-stage you’ll be pleased to know, and on to the oh-dear-god-there’s-going-to-be-a-real-life-baby-in-my-house-and-I’ll-have-to-look-after-it stage. This is running concurrently with the oh-dear-god-in-four-months-I’m-going-to-have-to-push-something-the-size-of-a-turkey-out-of-me stage.
But that is more than enough baby talk for what is meant to be a marriage blog. I promise not to bombard you with hundreds of pregnancy and baby posts because that is totes not what you’re here for, and I know that.
On that note though, can someone please recommend some sane pregnancy blogs for me to follow please? I can find plenty of ‘mummy-blogs’, but I’d love to find some blogs of some sane normal ladies like all of you, who are actually going through pregnancy at the moment. I’m sure there must be some? I really enjoyed Julia Boggio’s I carried a Watermelon, but she’s now had her baby – so if someone can find me a similar blog that is still in pregnancy stages, I would be forever grateful.
In fact, I’d probably name the baby after you. Unless your name was Eric. Or Wilhelmina.
