Week 36: The end is near. I think.

Back in week 15, I talked about progesterone shots and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Neither is really related to the other, but “Grey’s Anatomy” seemed like a good pop culture reference to something medical. Also, Patrick Dempsey. Week 15 seems like such a … Continue reading

Week 19: Maternity clothes and the growing bump

I have a love/hate relationship with maternity clothes. I LOVE that they are oh-so-roomy and non-constricting (Do tight clothes make anyone else feel sick to their stomachs when they are pregnant, or is that just me?) But, I hate that … Continue reading
