Here is my attempt.

"Cuando estuve embarrazada con Adrian, cada vez que veía un recién nacido, pensaba...."

Quoting posts seems to be broken: it doesn't work on 2 different computers using 2 different versions of MS Windows and 2 different browsers.

In this sentence, "estuve" (preterit) isn't compatible with "veía" (imperfect).
