My niece is pregnant with her first baby at the same time as I am pregnant with my fourth. How fun is that?! This is my third pregnancy, and I still feel completely surprised sometimes at the things that are happening to my body because every pregnancy is truly different. But, although I probably tell […]
But something else happens. It happens to me. And it happens each time. Regret. Guilt. Shame. I feel horrible- and not just because of a sore throat.
