No one ever tells you about all the crap that happens to you when you’re pregnant. Like, as an example, it’s not nine months, it’s ten long months.
We are three thirty-something women who were fortunate enough to be pregnant at the same time. We shared our questions, fears, humor, and experiences through emails,which became our lifeline and virtual give a boost to group. Here, we share the good, the bad, and the ugly of our experiences. We don’t hold back for the squeamish or the faint of heart—you wish to have the truth, and now!
We are all social workers with graduate education, and we have all worked in the obstetrical units of hospitals for a few years. Along the way, we thought it might be helpful to have someone sane weigh in on our hormonal ramblings, so we asked Dr. Bob, a specialist in high-risk pregnancies to help us out. But, we know that each one of this experience is nothing like being pregnant yourself!
So prop up your cankles, rest this book upon your shelf of a belly, and take a look at our email log. We made it through all of the experience and lived to tell the tale—and you are going to too.
