this experience of being pregnant has given me a whole new appreciation for women who, for whatever reason, have to do this alone. i find it very difficult to imagine what it must be like going through all of this with no one by my side. my husband has been incredibly supportive of me and my special needs during this time. he has done everything from holding my hair while my head is buried in the toilet to waking up early with the dog so i can get more sleep.
pregnancy and labor have not been particularly scary to me, because i know i will have him next to me through everything. i can't imagine him not being there.
i suppose all i want to say is this: if you're reading this little blog and going through pregnancy, labor, and child-raising by yourself, I THINK YOU'RE AMAZING.
