“I’m feeling so much better than I was,” Wilson shared. “I had a very rocky first and early-second trimester—I felt tired and sick and in a fog, like an extreme hangover, until about week 16. I thought, surely, this is the worst part of parenting. Then I remembered when I was 15 and my mom said I couldn’t go out, I pulled two giant brass wall sconces out of the wall with my bare hands. There are rougher waters ahead, I fear.”
