[ - ] When I was pregnant with my first kid, I did everything I shouldn't have. I worked VERY long hours, drank alcohol and caffeine, ate horribly, took allergy and pain medicines. DC was born a month early, is now 7 yo and has diagnosed learning disabilities. I can't help but feel extremely guilty. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Well, first of all I was not TTC and did not realize I was pg until around 3 months. At that point, we really weren't ready for a baby and I had to keep working hard in order to make ends meet. I couldn't drop everything and change my life. I kept up with my old habits because it was just too stressful to make changes. [ Reply | More ]
