Week 40Week: 40

Waist: 40 inches (no change)

Feeling: Ready and waiting

What can I say? Today is D-day and the Big Wait has begun. What a 40 weeks it’s been: I’ve put on 10 kilos – that’s one and a half stone in old money – my waist has expanded a whopping 13 inches and my chest has grown from a B to a D cup.

I’ve felt enormous for pretty much the entire pregnancy, but looking back at the weekly pictures I started taking at 20 weeks it seems to me that back then I barely even looked pregnant.

There’s no doubt about it: I feel fit to burst now. But given that BB was two weeks late, we could still have a little while to go…

I’ll keep you posted.
