Am I being used…

Or did you really need help? I have a friend who I was friends with before babies. We’d hang out and have a good time but her and her husband were flakey. But we liked them. Even though there was a good 60% chance they were going to cancel on you last minute.  So fast […]


 So I started BCP for the transfer cycle at the end of June almost a week and a half ago. BCPs are unpleasant. I have never gotten fuller boobs or clearer skin. I get hungry at 8 or 9 at night and headaches. The rest of my drugs came yesterday. I was talking to my […]
