Pitter Patter in Le Famille Britney

The times, they are a'changing. 

I'm getting fat for the second time in my entire adult life. 

(The first time was a few years into Dubai when I put on about 10 pounds. I was miserable for 6 months until I stopped eating like a pig. Then I returned to my happy, svelter self.)

Why, you say? Yes, you guessed, I'm up the duff! 

What, you hadn't guessed? Well luckily I haven't turned into Kim Kardashian (yet). Although there is plenty of time for that. And, if you live overseas, you haven't had a chance to see me from the waist down (god bless Skype).

You may have gathered from the low key Las Vegas wedding that I'm not a pomp and ceremony kinda gal. So don't expect this to turn into some glowing, slushy, Earth-Mother baby blog. But I will share some observations and tips (bear in mind I am far from your traditional fawning pregnant woman) which may or may not entertain you. 

Answers to anticipated questions:

  • No, we don't know if it's a boy or a girl
  • Yes, I was sick as a dog at the start (never actually threw up)
  • Yes, I have felt the baby kicking
  • Yes, this heat is killing me
  • No, I haven't had any strange cravings
  • Yes, the husband is the giddiest goat on the block (as am I)
  • Yes, I am having the baby in Dubai
  • No, this doesn't mean it is a UAE citizen
  • No, we haven't decorated a nursery

Oh, and all things being equal, baby Britney will be rocking our world by the end of October.

Watch this space.

I think you should call the baby britnesha if it is a girl :-)
