Your Personal Guide to Pregnancy


That’s the name of  a brochure I was handed somewhat absentmindedly as I was headed out of the midwife’s office on Friday.

Here, without delay, is quite possibly the most useless piece of pregnancy advice that has ever been written:


It is normal to have:

More interest in sex….

Less interest in sex….

Mixed feelings and thoughts about sex….”

Like a lot of other advice in my personal guide, I think it might have been more helpful if it simply said: “Pregnancy, like life, leaves you with contradictory thoughts and feelings about almost everything almost all the time. The sooner you accept this and move on, the more sense it will all make.”
