Glad to meet other pregnant women with October due dates! Supposedly in Chinese culture it is very auspicious to give birth to a child in the Year of the Dragon! 2012 is the year of the dragon. I'm due around the 6th of October.
I was wondering if there are any of you who are journaling your pregnancy experience.
My husband and I started. We record our dreams in it as well. He has been the one who has
had all the baby dreams - he keeps dreaming it's a girl! The last dream he had was hilarious -
it was at the later stage of my pregnancy in the dream and he was able see through my skin and saw that
there were twin girls and lemon slices in there to keep them fresh! I have to admit, I think it's a girl too - although, not sure about
twins and I am positive there are no slices of lemon in my uterus! Let's hope not!
In our journal, we've been doing drawings, I've been writing my symptoms (which at this point aren't much to speak of - no nausea,
just constipation and gas - no heartburn, and barely sore boobs); we've also been writing poems and in general keeping a day to day diary.
I was also wondering if there were any artists, musicians, writers, crafters in this group who feel exceptionally creative now that they are pregnant. I am a musician/artist and feel very dreamy from the hormones and this mood has been great for creativity!
Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this, but I find that watching any violent or aggressive imagery on t.v. completely unbearable, as if I already have a strong sense of protecting this little, little sprigeen. I've taken to surrounding myself with beautiful imagery. Does anyone else feel that not only is it important to eat well for the growing bean, but to also ingest only things that are mentally good for you and the bean? It feels like a strong instinct to me.
I would love to hear responses - if there are any of ye who feel extra creative now. I think pregnancy can be a very powerful and spiritual time where one is more sensitive than normal so there is more opportunity for creativity. It's a great time to channel all those symptoms into something artistic!
all the best
