Pregnancy can be one of life's most exciting phases as you prepare to welcome a new family member, but it can also be one of the most stressful, especially as the details of your maternity coverage start to bog you down.
I really want to focus on the baby. But birth is so damn distracting. It's just looming there, at the end of pregnancy, like this massive Mount Doom with Sauron's fiery eye flicking vigilantly back and forth above. I am definitely Frodo in my birth story, with the wide, terrified eyes.
My dear Princess: Congratulations on your wonderful news! Here is some pregnancy advice from me, currently pregnant with twins -- and this is advice you can trust -- because not only am I pregnant and already a mother of three, but I am grandmother to an adorable three year old, as well.
