    First trimester food nausea & avoidance Being pregnant is tough - or so I hear. You're tasked with creating a child, with actually building an entire human being bit by bit from scratch. You have to carry that child, even as it grows to seven, eight, or even nine pounds or more inside your body. And all the while, your body seems to be rebelling against "what is best." You want to eat the best food and get the right exercise and do all the right things, but what happens when your body fights you?

Rainbow Baby- The baby that comes after a loss.

Pregnancy loss, miscarriage After the loss of my second child. I keep wondering ... Am I a mom? This time around, it's hit me harder.

Pregnancy after loss: "I want to be that naive old me. The me that didn't think twice about loss during first pregnancy. The me that didn't know anything about the 24 week viability mark, but rather focused on making it to the 12 week mark because that is when you are supposedly 'safe'.
