Thanks to progesterone suppositories for being SO GROSS. Even though I wear a pad, it's not comfortable to leak all the time... Sometimes I'll suddenly run to the bathroom to wipe up, and DH has learned what's going on. As of last night, my new nickname is Progesterone Pants.
With us on earth for five short days, with us in our hearts forever.
(Thank you Natasha for this beautiful graphic of Andrew, and to the ladies of the Nov 10 PR who help me in carrying on his memory.)
