As a writer who bases most of her professional work on firsthand experiences, I’m a pretty open person. I have zero filter and a pretty thick skin. I’m used to putting my feelings out there and getting all sorts of feedback and advice. Criticism hardly fazes me anymore and there aren’t a whole lot of topics that “hit a nerve” with me, so to speak.
Bring up pregnancy with any woman who has been trying—unsuccessfully—to get pregnant, and you’re opening up a whole can of emotional worms.
