I went to my doctor, crying my eyes out, and I was like, ‘I haven’t taken my prenatals in six weeks. Is my baby okay?’ I was so angry with myself,” they continued.

“‘You have one f-king job! One job! Take your prenatals! Your body’s doing everything else, you can’t even do that.’ I felt like such a failure.”

“When this pregnancy started, I was like, ‘You’re going to do yoga and eat flaxseed. You’re going to use essential oils and hypnobirth and meditate and f-cking journal every single day.’ I have done none of those things. Zero. None. I eat cookies and had a bagel every single day for the first five months of my pregnancy,” they went on to admit.
