You might already feel guilty just for getting pregnant if you're not married and you've been brought up by that type of family. Or for ditching your work without an adequate handover when you bugger off for maternity leave (because who cares when your pelvis is falling apart and you can't pull your pants up properly).

We spend nine months trying to live like organic angels verging on born again virgins, doing everything we can to grow a healthy little human. Buying into every miracle cream, vitamin and birthing class and book going. What keeps us committed through all the dry parties, the charcoaled steaks and inedible non runny eggs?

I haven't eradicated anxiety - and I still overreact to things sometimes. But instead of feeling guilty, I try to feel proud of myself. I share mindfulness with my son, so hopefully he'll be better equipped than I was as a child.

There's a lot of people having or who have had affairs out there, if my sampling is anything to go by. It's curious that they choose to tell me because in my mind, what I am doing and what they are doing is completely opposite even if it involves the same amount of people.

Some say that the antidote to those very understandable and human difficulties is the willingness to love, forgive and to let go of the past. All too easily can we get stuck in the past, concede control and power of our lives to what has or could have been. With that frame of mind, perspective on life, and heavy heart it is difficult to move on.

While some believe woman inherently feeling guilty about X,Y and Z has "become lazy journalism folklore - like how men can't multitask and women can't park a car" research suggests it might actually be true. Which is flippin' great for us, right girls?

It sounds obvious, but maybe you were a child who picked at scabs. You know you shouldn't spend time with those individuals who deplete your energy and leave you feeling guilt ridden - so stop doing it! Chose your friendships wisely and mix with those of a sunny disposition.

Mesmerised by the second child and totally drawn in. And I didn't love Anna any less. Phew! There isn't a finite amount of emotion in me. Or at least I hadn't reached the limit yet. I'm pretty apathetic about most things so it's quite possible I have some saved up over the years.

Simply put, I feel like I'm letting them down. I'm not there to pack them of to school or to tuck them into bed and that niggles me... Bringing up kids in modern times is a full time job in itself and then we want to go and have another full time job at the same time?! Working parents/professional jugglers? Same thing.

Thanks Gwyneth. I was having a bad day ANYWAY, until you made me feel even worse. Guilt rears its ugly head enough for us full time working mums, without you wading in to the fray telling us we need to "compromise" to be a mother and run a successful family.
