Lately I have been thinking about how safe my baby really is when I am using a standard seat belt. If I were to be involved in a car accident, would BOTH of us be safe?
I personally needed a lot of support. Juggling a career with all the changes and challenges that pregnancy throws at you, has not been an easy task.
“Your skin is going to break out … You can’t eat sushi … Don’t eat oranges or drink orange juice … Don’t eat ice … Don’t sleep too much … Don’t wear high heels …You need to take it easy and stay home until the baby is born … Don’t wear this, wear that instead … You need to gain at least 12kgs … If your belly itches, don’t scratch … Expect the ugly nose …”
