I’ve gone over all Julie Andrews! I have decided that if I like this parenting malarkey, I might just become Mary Poppins.

I received my first Tesco Baby and Toddler Club magazine in the post today, which had a Top 10 “What mums’ love most about being pregnant” in with the coupons (got to love a freebie!). I have to say reading through these I did feel concerned for the human race, so I thought I’d share these with you too.
Top 10 aspects of pregnancy*
1. Eating more (89%)
2. Exercising less (74%)
3. Feeling your baby move (71%)
4. Buying a new wardrobe (67%)
5. The general feeling of being pregnant (64%)
6. Being given seats on public transport (54%)
7. Having an excuse to lie-in (51%)
8. Your partner paying you extra special attention (46%)
9. Having an excuse not to socialise (38%)
10. Work colleagues giving you extra consideration (32%)
*(According to a study of 1,181 UK mothers by myvouchercodes.co.uk in July 2012)
My favourite things about being pregnant:
– Feeling the little monkey inside me squirming and moving – even at 3am in the morning when I’m trying to sleep. Honest!
– Watching my Bump grow in fascination from a flat stomach *cough* into a round belly
– Knowing that my Bump will one day be a cute, pudgy baby who cries a lot, but whom we shall love unconditionally
– Extra cuddles and foot massages from Nick
– Not feeling that guilty for eating chocolate, cake or ice cream

I’m feeling rather achy and grumpy this evening after having my whooping cough and flu jabs today – looking forward to a long soak in the bath! I am very happy though, as I only have 19 days left at work until my maternity leave starts!
I hope your Monday has gone well.
