• 40 weeks pregnant: the 96%

    October 10, 2014

    Today is my due date and I am officially 40 weeks pregnant, so clearly I’m not having a baby today. Did you know that apparently only 4% of women actually do (did you?)

  • 39 weeks pregnant: on time

    October 8, 2014

    Here’s my latest pregnancy update at 39 weeks pregnant… An awful lot of pregnancy is spent marking time, isn’t it?

  • What *not* to buy when you’re pregnant

    September 22, 2014

    What should and shouldn’t you buy when you’re pregnant? What do you actually need…and not need? I completely forgot that pregnancy makes you a huge target market for all sorts of goods and products you never knew you needed, doesn’t it? (Oh, and a target for every single mailing list ever).
