Here are some photos from when I was nearing the end of my pregnancy last year. It was not long after this that I was quite ill and ended up spending some time in hospital.
At the same time as being ill, we were in the middle of a kitchen renovation and I had a to-do list that seemed unending. Although I was discharged from hospital after a few days, I still spent a number of painful weeks recovering. I was in the most pain I had ever felt and I was unable to do anything. When I say that I was unable to do anything I really mean not a single little thing. Just breathing had been absolute agony. Talking, coughing and laughing were all painful events I had to avoid. I couldn’t move, not even to turn over in bed.
