When do I start to feel pregnant? I mean really pregnant. Not nauseas or hormonal or starving or exhausted, but pregnant. Glowing and maternal with a lovely bump in my front. Currently all I have is a pooch when I stand and a big fat roll when I sit, which does nothing for my self-esteem and is making me start to believe all the baby books that tell us mamas-to-be that any weight we don’t lose naturally post pregnancy is because we overate during the 9 month gestation period. Harsh isn’t it? Particularly when I was convinced the peanut wanted plates of creamy pasta for dinner and packets of tim tams for dessert. Initially I was doing alright because I wasn’t drinking but those lost calories seems to have been easily replaced with copious amounts of legal hard cheese, bread, vitawheats and banana bread (which we all know is cake masquerading as something healthy). Ah well, it’s a journey, just like our three month food-and-drink-orgy road trip and I bounced back from that ok. It would help if it wasn’t always raining of late, I would be far more compelled to get out there for a trot if I knew I wasn’t going to have to swim part of it instead.
This sounds distinctly like I’m having a whinge, so I shall stop right here and go and have breakfast. Scrambies, mushrooms, homemade baked beans and fresh sourdough bread topped liberally with fresh salty butter. Delish, though i suspect it's also part of the problem. Any clues bloggies?
