'When I do get pregnant, I highly doubt I'll be one of those women who don't look pregnant from behind - I'll be that chick who looks pregnant from her ankles up'- Katherine Heigl
I spent a majority of last week on an assignment out in the freezing cold streets of central London looking for pregnant women. And not just any pregnant women- fashionable pregnant women. You'd think on the packed streets of New Oxford Street I would be spoilt for choice, but I roamed around for hours with an unused camera. I had my eyes glued to the stomach of women as they walked by, slowly making my way up to their face where I was met with a 'I want to punch you in the face' look. That was awkward in itself, but imagine being faced with the following dilemma- not knowing if they were pregnant or slightly overweight :/ I never noticed how different each women's body could be. Some had large thighs and tiny waists, some had huge midsection's and long legs and others....well they were just generally large all around.

3) For gods sake- do it in the SUMMER !
On a final note, I was having lunch with an old friend this weekend in Wimbledon. We headed out of the restaurant completely engrossed in a different conversation, when she point out 'Oh look- there's a pregnant woman!'......Damn right, there she was in all her pregnant glory. I felt a little stab of bitterness, wondering where that woman had been when I needed her the most- But i got over it and moved on with my life.
