Drabble: Barefoot And Pregnant

Title: Barefoot And Pregnant
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: One of the team.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 436: Home Alone at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Being pregnant sucks.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Being pregnant sucked! Bad enough that it meant resembling something that had swallowed a whale, that waddling had replaced walking, that feet were a distant memory, not to mention completely unreachable, and that constant food cravings warred with equally constant heartburn. To add insult to injury, it also meant being stuck at home, alone, while everyone else got to go outside and have fun.

It wasn’t fair; in fact, it might even be considered sexist. They weren’t living in the dark ages; why should something as natural as pregnancy merit being shut away?

“Just because I’m a man,” Jack sighed.

The End
