Congratulations! You’re pregnant!! Excellent news. You’re going to be a mum and it’s going to be wonderful. You can see it all now….the glowing mumma with her gorgeous babe. So chic. So effortless. So hip. You know exactly what you’re going to be like. Or perhaps you know exactly what you’re not going to be like.
1. I won’t flood Facebook with pictures of my baby. Groan
Yes you will.
You’ll take thousands of photos of your child and every now and then, one photo will make your heart explode with the cuteness and you’ll tell yourself it would be a crime to keep it to yourself and maybe just this once you should share it with your friends.
Besides, you really need to put up pictures for your mum and dad because it’s their grandchild and they have a right to see it. Right?
