Is it Gas or am I Pregnant?

Is it Gas or am I Pregnant?

Pregnancy, in and of itself, would be almost a miraculous conception.  See, Doug and I decided after our second was born almost 2 years ago, that we had our complete family.  So 3 months after Tyler was born, Doug went to see the doctor (the […]
