Korin, it could either be a good sign or it could be a result from the progesterone supplements
: (You know how I feel about good signs -- ime, they don't mean much until you get two lines! That said, they don't mean anything negative either
OK, I can't believe I didn't step in on the whole "sexy like a root vegetable" topic!
: Seriously, you gotta have a talk with that man... tell him what's up, what you're feeling, that you're feeling unsexy... and then get to work on viewing yourself as a sexy mama! You don't need him to make you feel sexy (though it helps -- and imo, the best partners are those who make you feel sexy, even when you have bronchitus and OBVIOUSLY look like
That's M -- he's a G-dsend!)
My "feel your inner sexiness" tips: spa night in your bathroom, with a good massage oil/ lotion, some lovely bath salts/ bubbles and whatever extra accutrements your heart desires
(Make sure you drink a lot of cold water if you'll be in a steamy room for awhile...) Oh -- and have some favorite music playing!
Anyway, start off your spa night with a self-massage (not a euphemism! You can do the euphemism later...) To get the full effect, standing in front of a full length mirror is helpful. (Candlelight is good if you have body issues, but this massage is designed to deal with your body issues...) Basically, as you massage each part of yourself, you need to send loving/ self accepting messages to your brain about that body part.
For example, if you hate your thighs, while massaging them think, "my thighs are strong and beautiful." Even if you don't believe it yet, if you do this practice enough, you can come to understand that it is TRUE!
Anyway, finish your massage, take a long warm bath, and then put on something silky (body powder, in my case
) Hopefully, you'll be feelin' your inner diva!
