When I found out I was pregnant with Conor I was single, young, and pretty stupid. When I told the ex-boyfriend the situation he quickly skipped town around the time I was 6 weeks along. I never heard from him again. I had to grow up and get my shit together fast, but in all honesty it wasn't that hard.

Now I'm wondering how I'm going to possibly to survive the next 9 months. I mean really, how do women do it? All I want to do is curl up in a nauseous, migraine induced coma.
