episode 41: #041 My first time - Hanna's first pregnancy test

Hanna takes us on the ride of her very first pregnancy test ever! There's no buns in these ovens, but it's a beautiful rollercoaster ride to clearing up some brain space. When your cycle just isn't playing by the rules, all of the thoughts and best/worst case scenarios can take up a lot of room, and there's only one (almost totally) reliable way to clear up the question marks.

Megan brings us news of a (re-)new(ed) beginning in her life: movement! She tells us about her experience of exercise through pregnancy and as a mom. We talk about finding time and motivation for exercise and how there's no "just" doing anything when facing different kinds of barriers to taking care of our bodies.
