I found that once my youngest child turned 3, I could breathe. I looked up and started thinking about my career, my goals, my SELF for a change. Even though I was a working mom all along, I wasn’t nurturing my career during my childbearing years. I was just getting through -- earning a living, keeping job, home, and health whole. I toyed with the idea of a fourth child, but found what I really wanted was a fourth pregnancy. I know -- who would want a pregnancy without the promise of a child? How about an Unpregnancy with the promise of your brain-child or nine months, nine lessons to a new you?
