    I bake and sell cupcakes - mainly to just friends and family. My cousin is getting married on July 2nd and has asked me to baker her 140 cupcakes + a small cutting cake for her wedding. Ill just be about 8 months pregnant at that point. This is my first pregnancy so have no idea how I'll be feeling at this point. Have I gone mad by agreeing to do this or will i feel up to doing it? It's likely A 1.5 - 2 day job.

    I dont think its any different than anyone else working and being 8 months pregnant. Alot of women work until their water breaks!

    I would have been happy to do it at 8 months pregnant. It was really only the last couple of days before I went into labour that I found uncomfortable and didnt really feel like doing anything x

    I think the bride should have a back up plan, like scope out a bakery that would take her last minute and you should talk about how you feel 2 weeks before the baking starts, its my first pregnancy but im a cook and I know youll need to stand and bend... decorating with small details when your tired is torture... you can always get a kitchen helper.

    but its all about you and how you feel... :)

    cupcakes are sooo yummy.....

    You might find you'll need to make a couple extra. Lol Cooking and decorating 140 cupcakes is tempting enough but when your 8 months pregnant a few just might go missing. Hehe.
    1 for you... 1 for the baby... 1 for you... 1 for the baby.
