18th July 2007 [LONDON]

Utterly unaware of the tiny second heart beating inside me ...When this photo was taken, I didn’t know that I was pregnant.

The clues were all there; I was just too inexperienced and ignorant to put two and two together. But these things are always so easy to see with hindsight.

A few days before this photo was taken, I had pulled on a pair of jeans to find they were uncomfortably tight around the waist. Unwearably tight. I was surprised but didn’t think much of it.

Then I saw the photos from the trip … And I was shocked at how pudgy I looked, and strangely busty (for me).

It took me another 6 weeks to figure out the reason why.
