mamajaza! :ignore my lips are sealed, but oh boy!
know that i'm sending peaceful blissful gentle birthing vibes to you.
and thanks for telling me that your breasts expanded faster than the 'they' folks say...i sometimes need reminders that normal is a whole beautiful spectrum, not a single point on a line. it's still seeming like i am, until nights falls and then my body and emotions are quiet. my dh jokingly said that if i'm not pg, i have alot of explaining to do! not many women sit up in a backhoe out in the woods crying their eyes out and laughing simultaneously and i have to tell you, it's quite a site!
luckily the backhoe is being repaired to day and it looks like rain, so i got to come back to town to the computers...i'm really needing that mdc vibe these days! feels so good.
sending vibes of comfort to all you who's bodies aren't giving them to you! does soaking in water help? i'm curious, since it lifts some of the weight from the joints...or is it the looseness of the joints that is uncomfortable?
our neighbor had a baby a day or two ago and when 'dad' stopped by yesterday to tell us, all he had for us was the weight and gender...the mentality it takes to choose giving birth in a hospital is sooo *foreign* compared to hoembirth and uc. i don't even expect to weigh our lit'lun, unless for some reason we start wanting to know...i just want a healthy birth free from someone else's measurements, constraints and ideas of how i should feel like birthing. the more i learn about uc, the more i wonder why it's not more common. the idea of uc gives such a liberating free feeling to thinking about birth.
to all uc-ers for keeping the knowledge alive and kicking!
