Congrats, You’re Pregnant

Your world is about to change. Your body is no longer your own, and some days, that can be uncomfortable.


Every twinge, fear, and uncertainty will be wiped away when you feel your baby moving around in your belly.

It’s a bond that only a mother and a child can experience, and we’re privileged to have that honor – even if some days it doesn’t feel like it.

Questions Are Normal During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time of unending questions. You want to know everything you can about what’s happening inside your body, what life will be like when the baby arrives, and you want things to be perfect for when that moment finally arrives.

I’m sure I annoyed my doctor immensely with all my questions. I sounded like a child playing one of those never-ending question games, where the sole point of asking the question is to annoy the other person.

I’m probably legendary in that office – my name is likely blacklisted because of how long I took at my doctor appointments, with my list of questions. That’s right – I actually wrote them down so I wouldn’t forget any.

Nine Months Is a Long Time to Wait

Some days it felt like my pregnancy would never end. That last month of pregnancy, in particular, seemed to last forever – my legs would swell to gigantic proportions if I was on my feet for more than an hour or so. You couldn’t tell where my calves ended and my ankles began. I felt like the bearded lady at an olden-time circus – people would gasp in wonder and horror whenever they saw my legs.

As I spent my nights with my legs elevated to reduce the swelling, I wondered if the big moment would ever finally arrive, and how I would recognize it when it did.

As you work your way through the highs and lows of pregnancy, I hope the articles on our website help you with all the questions and concerns you have.

Just the fact that you’re here seeking information tells me you’re going to be a great mother. You’ve got this.
