When I was first pregnant, I didn't want to breastfeed. I thought it would be perverted. I thought it was nasty. I knew I had been breastfed, and I knew many moms did it, but I thought "that's gross and I don't want to." Halfway into pregnancy, my husband sat me down and told me… Continue reading Keeping A Small Human Alive With My Boobs

So my stomach is free of them, which I'm grateful for, but my left… Continue reading I Actually Did Get Stretch Marks, They’re Just Hidden.

My water… Continue reading My Labor Experience: TMI Included.
