Homemade Bagels and Scones, oh my!
Well now that the pregnancy is out I can talk about the current feels! Last week I was sitting in the waiting room at my OB's office for what seems like the 10th time in one month surrounded by pregnant women, two of them were making small talk and I was li...

Why I'm not hiding my pregnancy, even after a loss
