I have always been a big reader, however I was reticent to read too much too soon and overfill my book case during my pregnancy.
After a while, I thought I should seek out the answers I required from those in the know, those who have some experience and medical knowledge.
The first trimester really dragged with morning sickness (hello bathroom floor and a nightly dinner of spinach and ricotta tortellini from a packet - no sauce, just plain...more on that later). However once we had had our first scan, the weeks really marched on and my due date was becoming imminent.
It is so tempting when you are awake at 3am to randomly Google phrases such as 'odd pain in left side when 28 weeks pregnant' ... What did I expect to find.
Well I will tell you, load of forums with scary, scary stories. Stories that are not helpful and make you feel even more do lally. So from me to you... Put down the Google.
