multiculti christmas

I wonder if I could smuggle a watermelon or a pineapple into Germany? We’re going for Christmas – lockdown levels permitting – and although I’m looking forward to it, the Christmas braai recipes on page 24 of this issue just gave me such a pang for a proper summer holiday. You can almost taste the sunshine and smoke in the photographs. Last year in Cape Town the beaches were closed a day after my first (and therefore only) ocean swim, so I feel like I was robbed of a summer Christmas holiday. Then again, I do love a German Christmas too, and it is good for my children to connect with that half of their heritage. The first time I found out what a typical German Christmas Eve meal is, I thought…

an easy pregnancy, but then things changed

My husband and I were planning on having our first baby. Our first visit to the doctor was in February 2021. It was such an amazing experience getting to see the tiny little embryo growing inside me. In March it was confirmed that we were having a baby girl. I was so excited to know that a mini me was on the way. I couldn’t wait to do her hair, dress her up and make her my best friend. Our baby was due on 8 September. My six months of pregnancy was great and pleasant (no morning sickness or cravings). I thought my body was beautiful to look at because I saw it as a carrier of my little human being – like a kangaroo! “I THOUGHT MY BODY WAS BEAUTIFUL TO LOOK AT…

“Do you cry more now that you are pregnant? If yes, what triggers the tears?” AMOGETSWE MPHELE (26) from Vosloorus on the East Rand of Gauteng is 37 weeks and says, “Take it from me, most of the time what triggers my tears is that I get little or no attention from the father of my baby. These insecurities trigger tears, because I feel so big. Most of the time I feel like I’m not good enough for him anymore.” THEMBI MNISI ZULU (33) from Daveyton, Gauteng, is 33 weeks and says she cries from the pure exhaustion of being pregnant, and she also gets teary when she realises how much she misses her pre-pregnancy body.
