You’re irritated by your other half’s inability to place a simple order.

The toilet is your BFF.

You’re wearing shorts in the blistering rain.

Anywhere, anytime, anyplace – you’re hot. And not in that way.

You cry. A lot.

From sobbing at dog food adverts (and you don’t even like dogs) to crying when you’ve run out of chip sticks – there’s just so much to blub about.

You wake up in the night…

Anxious about the lack of sleep you’ll get once your baby’s here. Go figure.
