Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!WHY I WRITE:

Pregnancy is supposed to be this beautiful and wondrous thing. If you're like me, you have had the perfect "textbook" pregnancy up until the words, "you have Preeclampsia," were uttered. Suddenly, you're not so sure what's going on with your body, with your pregnancy, and to some extent, with your life.  I've been there.  I've researched more than I care to admit about Preeclampsia, "life after preeclampsia," subsequent pregnancies, etc.  I thought I was done with babies when I still have to pick up broken pieces of my heart and this idealization of what motherhood is supposed to look like when my girl was born.  I endured. I AM enduring. There's really nothing you can do except putting one foot in front of the other and hoping for the best.

My journey with Preeclampsia began in 2012.
Our story begins here:

Blog: Underconstruction

Starting from Scratch (again) I miss blogging. It's been almost 2 months since I left this site. 2 months and I've decided I don't like the look of my author website....and how as much as I wanted to integrate the two. I just can't. This space is under construction. In the future, I will post only on Mondays and all about Motherhood. My motherhood monday series will begin in TWO WEEKS(eek!!) starting on April 1st. I will also post my author news here once a month...which will also be on my website. Third time's the charm, right?!
