Doctor Appointments

Tuesday, March 24, 2015      2 comments

Yesterday I had two doctor appointments. The first one was with my gyno and was just my annual check. As I'm sure all women feel, the check itself isn't anything to look forward to but I do really like my doctor. I've only been seeing her for ab... Read more
