Food Relief

I have built up a small arsenal that I don’t leave home with out. I even had to switch to a bigger purse to accommodate my nausea. Pictured above are a few of my choice weapons. There are mint candies, Gin Gin’s ginger candies, & crystallized ginger. I also have a stash of peanut butter crackers in my purse. I will be so happy when this goes away.

TLC Overload

I am obsessed with watching channel TLC’s two shows, Bringing Home baby, & A Baby Story. I Tivo them then watch them in bulk when I get a chance. Chris thinks I am crazy for watching those shows but I think I am just trying to get prepared. Some of the stuff is fascinating. This one time this lady had a 10 lb baby, and she had it vaginally. The baby was huge I could not believe it. Another episode the young couple got pregnant because their Labrador dog ate her birth control and she thought it would be alright not to take it one month. LOL.

What I have been craving for the last couple of days is a BLT, and I have no bacon in the house. Unfortunately I live out in the country and it is about an hour trip to run out and get some bacon to bring home to make myself a BLT. I do my grocery shopping on Tuesdays so it is probably the first thing I will be running my cart too in the store.

Do you want stories? My 2nd was 10.5 lbs, born at home, in 3 hours, with no tearing or other problems.

I lived in the country and walked a lot to keep in shape, etc. I think my physical fitness was key in my good birth experiences.

My mother and grandmother were appalled that I was chopping firewood into my last month. :-) But Grandma chopped wood until she was 73 years old.

My 3rd was born when I was 35, 9lb, 13 oz, just a few hours labor, no complications of any kind. At home.

Listen to the encouraging stories. Our bodies were made to birth. Complications are actually rare. The whole thing is wonderful. Even teenagers.

I've been enjoying your (other) blog for some time now, and I know I am going to enjoy your current adventure. Wish I could do it again myself. (47 yo. is pushing it, though) :-)

Blessings, Cecilia
