Mothers’ Day

Today is Mothers’ Day in the UK (well, I should say Mothering Sunday as I have a Nanna who highly disapproves of the term ‘Mothers’ Day’ and insists that all of her children send her Mothering Sunday cards – but as she doesn’t use the internet I think I’m safe!) and it has dawned on me that this is the last Mothers’ Day before I become a mother. All Mothers’ Days from now on will be different! We drove down to where my brother got married last year and went out for a lovely family lunch. I’m only 11 weeks pregnant but my belly looked well-rounded even before I had lunch! One of my Nannas patted my stomach and said “Ooh Ruth, go careful love!”. I can’t help it that my belly totally seems to have a mind of its own! I normally have a fairly slim waist. My brother and sister-in-law had bought me a sweet ‘Mother-to-be’ card which was really lovely. My mother-in-law had also bought me one, as well as giving me some preventative stretch mark cream! I’m sure I’ll talk about the cream at some point… It’ll definitely be going on the belly sooner rather than later!
