Blog 4 – w/c Monday 7th July

This week I was devastated to find out that my daily two mile walk was actually only 1.75 miles. And as it takes me 45 minutes at the moment, I am starting to think it’s almost better for the dogs to run around in the garden as they would get more exercise!

I also encountered the “strangers walking up to you and touching the bump syndrome”! For those of you who have been there, you know what I am talking about. For those of you who haven’t, let me explain. It’s when a total stranger walks up to you, touches your bump and then comments of your size. This isn’t always welcome, and as most pregnant women know, you feel insecure, highly emotional, and probably slightly neurotic!
