me that are awake and fretting at 2 AM can't believe that my family
is letting me take them on a trip that is going to put us all so far
out of our comfort zone. What if everything goes wrong? What if our
beautiful lives are ruined because I didn't want to go skiing?

it stories, like I've seen other pregnant women do. I communicated
