Crying in the Closet & Finding a Happy Place: 29 Weeks Pregnant, HG Life

What a crazy a title. At almost thirty weeks pregnant you would assume I wouldn't be stuck at home sick anymore, yet, I find myself in the predicament daily.

What a week..I don't know where it went and what I did with it...but it's gone. I hate weeks like that. Weeks that are so consumed with nausea that one day runs into another and it is as though nothing substantial has been accomplished, other than some evidence that laundry was done and there is… Continue reading Journal: 14 Oct 2016
