Your Pregnancy - - Contents - HE­LEN SCHÖER

The last weeks of preg­nancy can feel like the slow­est weeks of your life. You’re so tired, but can’t find a com­fort­able po­si­tion to rest in. You’re hun­gry, but feel full af­ter a few bites, as there just isn’t any more room in your body. You get back to your desk only to find you need the loo again – you wish you could drive there in­stead of walk, but your arms hardly reach the steer­ing wheel any­more ei­ther. And when you fi­nally fall asleep, it only lasts about five min­utes be­fore you get a firm baby kick in the blad­der or a head-butt un­der your rib. You wake up crav­ing fish paste on straw­ber­ries, now! As te­dious and frus­trat­ing as it all feels, please be­lieve me that you are al­ready mak­ing pre­cious mem­o­ries. Sooner than you know, you’ll be hold­ing your baby and you’ll be so busy that you might find your­self miss­ing the long, slow days of your preg­nancy. While you wait, take ev­ery opportunity you can to put your feet up with your favourite mag­a­zine. We’ve re­designed this month to make it an even bet­ter read than be­fore. Ask your part­ner to put the ket­tle on, set­tle in some­where cosy and start pag­ing. And please let us know what you think.
