On pregnancy

Three Little Rabbits by Hannah Foley. All rights reserved (www.owlingabout.co.uk).With my due date looming ever closer I have been thinking about how to describe what it is like to be pregnant. On the outside I look round and smooth (and enormous!), but on the inside I don’t feel the same at all. Being pregnant is nothing like having a football up your jumper, more like a set of bagpipes. I roll over in bed and can’t get comfortable because it definitely feels like there’s an foot stuffed under my ribcage. I roll onto my other side. Now it feels like there’s a bottom pushing up against my stomach and my tea feels dangerously close to the surface. On the outside I look like one of those cheerful roly poly toys that always rights itself but inside it’s like carrying a jumbling bag of bones. And then as soon as I’ve got comfortable I need a wee!

Here are some bunnies I’ve been working on recently and here is a link to a beautifully written blog post by Jessica Ruston about being creative when you have a new baby.

    I really really like the bunnies. And I am enjoying imagining you as a cheerful roly poly toy even if I don’t get to see it.
