Sappy Post

Sappy Post

I've been feeling extremely sentimental lately, and it's taken me a while to really organize my thoughts enough to even begin processing my feelings through writing.

Finding Out I Was Pregnant

Finding Out I Was Pregnant

I told myself I would wait until 12 days post ovulation so as to not be disappointed with the very real possibility of a false negative.
