My friend and fellow stand-up comic Raquel D’Apice is currently pregnant with her second child and wrote this piece about pregnancy that captures so many feelings that I have right now: how much I loathe being pregnant sometimes while feeling guilty because some women would love to be pregnant and cannot. My daughter’s movements sometimes feel more like an alien’s jerky demands than sweet reminders of the magical female body and the tiny person my husband and I have created. And so many other things.
Read the piece. Follow her on the social medias. You’ll be glad you did.
