The Pregnancy Diaries

Me at 7 Months! I am being honest when I say that I did not love being pregnant.  Judge me if you want, but I did not like gaining weight (I know, who does?), abstaining from sushi, sleeping on my side, elastic-waisted everything, and I seriously missed my martinis.  What I disliked even more then […]
