I was in week 10 of my pregnancy and I was wondering if I would ever accomplish something of value again. Only five months earlier, I had hit a stride in which I was accomplishing all that I needed to while being able to care for my one-year-old. Writing was easy; working was easy; exercise was easy; mothering was easy. Oh how things change so fast. I admit that I am a total wuss when it comes to physical ailments but the first trimesters of my pregnancy render me exhausted and able to accomplish only the very essentials.
It was when I started to tell myself that I would never accomplish anything again, that I decided to do some blog reading.
