Happy new week all!
TM-Those comments are the worst! With my first I finally stopped talking to people. Stopped answering the phone etc, it was just miserable to hear everyone's input and to have them downplay on my excitement because I was a new mama. It was very difficult, I feel your pain. You have every right to be excited, because your body is definitely revving up! Regardless of when the baby comes, you can be excited knowing that your body and the baby getting prepared, that's wonderful!
We also finally found a doula! I made a connection with a new friend who knows basically the whole natural birth community in Seattle, and she connected us with a no fee doula. We met her yesterday and she is wonderful. DH, DD1, and DD2 loved her as well, so I took that as a sign that she is the one for us.
Yup, esp, I have my phone on silent, have changed my voicemail to "hi this is travelmumma, DH and I are getting prepared to meet our baby, so feel free to leave your name and number but know that it could be a whole before we get back to you." And I have also taken a leave of absence from Facebook too (except for our group on there).
So now I'm just listening to baby and body and that is ALL.
As far as killing own meat- I totally understand that. I feel that if I was going to eat meat again I would have to kill it... I did kill a pig when I was 13 or so and I haven't eaten pork since then HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Not long til Thanksgiving all! Are you excited?? I so wish I could pop over and eat food with you all!!
Like I mentioned above, I'm not answering my phone, not looking at clocks, and not really leaving the house. Yesterday I woke up, listened to my body- decided to stay in bed for another hour just chilling, got up, ate a freakish amount of fruit and hot chocolate, laid in the hammock and read Birthing From Within, then slept on the couch for 3 hours then did some gardening as the sun went down... Sooo nice! I didn't do anything at a certain time (eg oh it's 1 I better eat some lunch) I just listened to my body!!!
so if I have another month of this I'm gonna be pretty darn happy!!!!! It's like a holiday, from life!!!! Lol I didn't even nest!!!
Also after I had my rant I went and lit candles in baby's room/birth space and spoke to bub and ???someone/something??? And told bub that I trust that he knows when to come. That I trust him and I trust myself and I trust us together as a team feeling much better
