I've been feeling horribly sick during this pregnancy. My book writing has been completely on hold & I've been feeling so unproductive... Which makes me even more proud to have finished this article yesterday :) so I'm sharing it everywhere!  It took me a really long time to be able to articulate all the complex reasons behind my decision to UC -- Now, almost 9 years after first making the decision to do so, I've got it all pretty clearly oulined here:


I thought some of you might appreciate this & maybe you'll find it helpful in explaining your own reasons when people's questions get overwhelming.  I'll be writing a whole series for this site (kind of a step-by step guide to UC pregnancy) eventually -- Kind of have to wait for the muse to hit me hard as I'm working with a house full of boys -- But i'm really excited to be contributing & looking forward to getting more articles done soon.
