Down to earth with a bump (12) - HORMONES AT WORK (II)

It was about a month before my due date and my family were up visiting. It was warm and I was waddling, now due in less than a month. My dad and I were walking back towards the play park to meet my nephews; we could hear them amongst the many other children, all screaming with delight.

Inside my head I heard those same screams on replay. I stopped walking and turned to my Dad. Tears streamed down my face. "Dad," I said, "I’m not sure I even want this baby."

I fell in to his arms and sobbed.
