About Me

My photo
Last year I turned the big 3.0 and got married - I thought that was my milestone year. As it turns out, 2009 quickly overshadowed 2008 when my husband and I found out we were pregnant. I'm going to be experiencing everything for the first time as a woman and an expectant mother which is why I'm calling this my year of firsts. I'm senior editor for Marie Claire South Africa.

60 days

I didn't think it would happen this soon but it seems I'm waddling. At first it was only happening when I was getting out of bed or off the couch after watching a movie because my limbs get damn sore. But now it's all the time! If you've ever played The Sims you'll now what I'm talking about - Roselle - you'll know! when The Sim gets pregnant, and her belly sticks out and she slowly waddles to the kitchen to make something to eat...

By the way, eat your heart out Ros! I bought The Sims 3 - and it's fantastic apart from the fact that you can't fast forward through the boring actions like sleeping and eating. You literally have to watch your Sim sleeping for 10 minutes while he or she slowly regains her energy... big mistake on the creators' part. I'm hoping they're going to release a free patch to rectify the problem. So anyone who wants to buy it - wait until they release the second version... www.thesms3.com

In the meantime, I have exactly 60 days until my due date; and 52 days until my maternity leave starts. I'm taking four months' leave - one month unpaid. So I need to stay at work as long as possible so I don't have to come back to work in December... hope baby is patient til then!
