Roo: My partner of 12+ years
Tadpole: Our son, born December 2008
Sprout: Our daughter, born November 2013
I carried Tad, and the plan was for Roo to carry our second. After a year and a half of trying, Roo had had enough of poking, prodding and early-morning doctor appointments. So it was my turn again. I got lucky and got pregnant with Sprout.
