To say that I have difficult pregnancies is a gross understatement. I’ve been pregnant three times, twice with planned pregnancies, and once a total surprise. Through all three pregnancies I suffered a debilitating¬†condition called hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). Some people dismiss … Continue reading

Isn't that a contradiction?

I am craving hot chocolate yet at the same time the thought of it makes me want to puke. I mostly feel okay unless I think of food. I was telling Misha that I was going to make potato salad … Continue reading
