Becoming Mothers: The Good, the Bad and the Baby

When my husband and I decided we were ready to become parents, we quickly learned that getting pregnant was the easy part. The pregnancy wasn’t too difficult either. The worst part was anticipating the birth. Knowing that the baby was going to have to come out somehow. I tried to decide which path would be best. The traditional way didn’t seem like a good time and neither did a C-section. I wanted to reconsider. But there was no going back. I was due on my 30th birthday. The day after my birthday, I failed the stress test at a routine checkup.
