Dealing with Feeling Down

Antepartum Depression

In my last pregnancy update, I talked about how I was feeling pretty down. I’m tired and feel a bit underappreciated, and everything as just started to really get to me.

Losing a Pet

Losing a pet

Eating Disorders & Pregnancy Weight

Eating Disorders and Pregnancy Weight

Eating disorders. This has been the hardest thing to deal with in my pregnancy so far. As a former binge eater, it was really easy to fall back into old habits. I could justify them with the idea that I’m no longer on a diet. The reality is that more than 99% of women who …
