I can't believe that I have got less than 8 weeks to go - it seems crazy that in 2 months time my life is going to completely change and I will be somebody's mum! I now have my changing unit set up which I have borrowed from mum's friend at work.

I still think about Daniel often and wonder if he will be there nearer the time, it's so difficult to know what to do for the best. I don't want my child to have some kind of distant relationship with their Dad.

Towards the end of last year I had decided I was going to travel around Australia. I'd put it off and off because mum wasn't keen about me going on my own but my flat mate Becky at the time said that she'd come with me so I started saving. I never imagined that I'd be using that money to buy a push chair (£350 - unbelievable, I sold my car for less!), a cot, a changing mat, the list goes on. I regret not travelling now, I've missed my chance, haven't I? There are times in your life when you should just grasp an opportunity because you just never know what could be around the corner.

The other week my stomach felt really itchy and I wondered if I had a rash but because it has got so big I couldn't see so I had to ask Mum to look. "Oh, oh" was her reaction. Enter stretchmark number 1 into my life. It brought a certain amount of disgust and devestation to the kitchen that morning and then later that week it had brought along numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6......

Bird on a Wire
Imagine Carrie from Sex and the City morphed with Bridget Jones and a baby thrown in for added entertainment – that’s me, the ever optimistic romantic looking for my Mr Big but already with child! Read my blog from the beginning where I find out I am pregnant following a brief fling with my much older male colleague and fast forward to where I am now, stressed out working mum to my beautiful 10 year old daughter wondering if love really does in fact exist at first sight.
