Change of plan: not working this Sat…


Hi – just a quick note to say that I decided to not work this Saturday…
My stomach is very tight & the discomfort is way too much, I am not sleeping very well. I feel so tired & my feet is swelling. NO-WAY can I work like I want to.

If only you could see me right now, with wacking bags under my eyes…, the face expression-less, walking up the stairs so slowly & uncomfortably, I sure look like an extra from a zombie movie. D might also be able to confirm to you that I’m recently a bit short with the people around me, which is probably not a fantastic state of mind when you’re in a serving sector…!
I feel so down about going back on my words. I really want to work. I told loads of customers that I’d be there…


I feel ‘defeat’… I really hate myself when I’m like this… I feel so blue… sob.

ps: The baby is moving & kicking ALL THE TIME, which is absolutely wonderful, it’s a sign of life, that she’s healthy & active. So I’m not worried. The doctor says that all this movement signifies the baby’s active personality already. So maybe I’m carrying an Olympian Netball Captain or a female Kung-fu Master. – Although the only complaint is that my stomach feels bruised inside with her full-on punches & kicks. Just very uncomfortable all the time…


  1. That active little babe is sure wearing out her mama! I hope you get to rest up and relax for a bit. Happy valentines day :)

  3. I’m so sorry to hear that :( (though obviously the moving and kicking all the time is a good sign – my mum says I did the same to her, especially whenever she listened to classical music, which turned out to be prophetic – I’ve been a musician most of my life!) Hope she gives you a break soon and you get to catch up on your sleep! xx

  4. Hi rachel.
    Many thanx. My parents looked after my boy yesterday & today, & i’ve been sleeping & pretty much doing nothing, which is such a great feeling!!! Listening to classical music is great – D loves Bach, so it sometimes gets played on our stereo.

  5. Umm… by the way, I wondered if I could run a few wedding cake questions by you (my friends’ wedding is fast approaching, and I’m starting to stress…)? If you could just send me an email that’d be grand, I don’t want to clutter up your comments section with my questions. ;) Thanks!

  7. Oh *hug* I am sorry you are not feeling well- but I am so happy that your baby is feisty and strong.
    ” (Making) life is what happens when you’re making other plans”, I guess. I know it’s hard to feel as though you are letting others down but you must be your own priority now.
    I send you lots of happy energy that your discomfort will pass and that you will be surrounded by a beautiful pink bubble of comforting, healing, protective energy to see you and your daughter through the rest of your baby baking days :)
    Take care of yourself!
