Written June 21, 2017 I’m pregnant. It’s only been a few hours since I took the test (tests, actually just to be sure).

About a year and a half ago around my 26th birthday, I’d had a sudden realization that I was getting old. By my calculations if we held off any longer, I could be nearly 30 by the time we had a baby. That would not do, and I told LG, “I don’t want to be… Read More Timing
