7.) When you cry because…well insert pretty much anything here and it works.
8.) When you find yourself doing the toilet dance (if you’ve been there you know what I mean) in an effort to make each visit more productive and possibly give you a full twenty minutes between visits.
9.) When remaining pregnant another day becomes worse than all possibilities, fears and outcomes of giving birth.
