Chronic Mama Column

Check out my latest Chronic Mama column, “Hurricanes” at Literary Mama. The essay examines the resurgence of Will’s anxiety in my final trimester of this third pregnancy.

I am tired and frustrated. I’ll have a real baby in the house very soon. I don’t have the energy to deal with Will’s worries and that scares me, and sends me into a destructive cycle of unanswerable questions. Will having three children be too much for me? Would I be better able to help him if I wasn’t pregnant, if I wasn’t diabetic?

  1. Hi, Amy,

    First, congrats on Baby No. 3! I hope all goes smoothly for you.

    I hope the meds work wonders for Will. I know what a tough decision it can be sometimes to take that route.

    And it’s great to hear about all your work … keep at it … you’re a wonderful writer.


    • Thanks so much for your kind thoughts! Your blog looks great by the way, I don’t know when you made the design changes, but I love it!
