I'm starting this blog to discuss my pregnancy and parenthood and the highs and lows that come with it. I often come across blogs or discussions that treat pregnancy, birth, and mommyhood as some idealistic fantasy.
I'm here to tell the real side of what I've been through so far and the craziness that awaits me.
This blog is being written retroactively... It is now May 2010, but in retrospect, I realize that I have a story to tell. I'm writing each post in present tense and dated on the day that it happened. You will experience all of my highs and all of my lows dealing with my journey to motherhood.
I had a horrible pregnancy, which turned into a high risk pregnancy, which led me to give birth to a preemie, and then both of us had a host of issues after coming home.
If sharing my story will help another woman cope or get encouragement with any of these issues, then my work here is done.
