Starting a New Job While Pregnant

I don’t know why Mr. Dolphin and I thought it was a brilliant idea to try to start getting pregnant while I was looking to change jobs, but we discovered I was pregnant pretty much the same day that I got an offer for my current job. Part of our reasoning was that almost all […]


The Journey to Two
