“When I come in from work and Rob’s not there, I think ‘This is probably the last time I’m going to have time on my own.’

“I’m so excited but nervous as well. Everything is nerve-wrecking. Labour is nerve-wrecking, hoping your baby is healthy and being told everything is good.”

She related to her own mother, saying she understands the thoughts and nerves her mum had.

Glenda explained: “I’m becoming a mother and I’ve all these thoughts and feelings that my own mother had for years that are now driving me mad. I’m that woman!”
