Bee's nest

Trying very hard

Wannabe Mom


More than anything in the world, Rose wants a baby Rosie to call her own. And sometimes she has to stop herself from another pregnancy test. Just in case.

"My name is Rosie and I haven't bought a pregnancy test in 87 days. *Hi, Rosie* I'm rather chuffed with myself, to be honest. When my cycle was still crazy, I used to buy one every week from week 5. Quite an expensive habit at a minimum of R19 each."
