Strange things I loved about pregnancy
Strange things I loved about pregnancy…What strange things did you love about being pregnant? I have to say, now I’m not pregnant, the whole things seems strange looking back. It’s so all consuming at the time that when you’re in it it’s hard to imagine anything else. Then when you’re not…
