How to do you recharge your batteries? Vacation!

Dr. Connelly’s Q&As

I’m in my first trimester, and my pants are getting snug. What did you do for maternity clothes?

I’m in my second trimester, and I think I have a yeast infection. The discharge and itching are making me nuts. What did you do for them?
