I remember vividly the day I found out I was pregnant! I wanted to share the news with the rest of the world straight away but a misfortune that happened to me a year before made me hesitant. I kept the news under wraps as long as I could hide my bump ( 4.5 months! ). But it was very hard to reject a glass of wine at dinner parties when everyone knows I LOVE wine as much as ministers like making promises.
One night I asked the barman to make me a special drink (meaning a drink for pregnant women) as I was a novice at choosing a drink from the menu in the non-alcoholic drinks section. I thought this way everyone will leave me alone, but little did I know! My special drink caused so much interest that everyone wanted to have a sip of it. I was worried if they find out my drink was spirit free it would let the rumours flowing so I downed my drink swiftly and spent rest of the night sipping grape juice served in the wine glass.
