I remember duing my high-risk pregnancy I often felt like I had more questions than answers. I'd read something online - a blog post or a research study - and I'd wonder how it applied to me. Was I one of those statistics? Was that result likely to happen to me, for better or for worse?
I'd also have so many questions about how to cope with it all - the practical side of going through a high-risk pregnancy. How do you get through bed rest without going insane? How do I get my friends or family to understand that this is not a vacation and this is really scary?
