“I was asked if I was planning a pregnancy,” Humby wrote. When she answered “no” she was told “she has not taken any precautions to prevent her from getting pregnant”. I was being traded because I wasn’t ready and I needed my body. “I was due to play this season. I have expressed a desire to play this season. I was uncomfortable walking and was incorrectly told that I wasn’t taking my training seriously. ”
