Heather!! I hear you're in labor! I hope you're not sick. hug.gif

 

I'm sick. greensad.gif Finally came down with the stupid head cold that *everyone* else in this house has. I just got over a head cold only a couple of weeks ago! Not fair! But, my crotch is feeling better. lol. At the WAPF conference today (I have to elaborate in a minute!), I listened to Natasha Campbell-McBride talk about GAPS stuff and she touched on yeast infections & skin irritations a few times. She also talked about how much is absorbed via our skin (as much as when we eat things, except when it's topical, the liver doesn't filter it - it goes straight to our bloodstream!) So I was feeling kind of crappy about using the Monistat cream internally, especially with little baby's head RIGHT there. I switched to my cloth pads and have been feeling MUCH less irritated already. So I've decided no more cream in my yoni - all natural from here on out. I still don't think it was yeast anyway. Natasha recommended yogurt or kefir just slathered on and sort of inside after a bath. And of course diet, which I'm already doing that stuff. But YAY for much less irritation! Now I just have to kick this stinkin' head cold.

 

I had one of the best days I've had in a looong time today!! Totally & completely distracting despite the fact the every.single.person commented on/touched my big belly today and I had many, many, MANY hardcore contractions.The energy at the conference was just so.....real. Real people who just want real food and real living. I have to say, the highlight of my day (aside from the food), was Shannon Hayes' Radical Homemakers lecture. She was so funny, witty, over-educated, and down to earth. I would LOVE to spend a weekend with that woman.

And the food....oh goddess the food. It was all local & grass-fed & prepared in a nutrient-dense, traditional fashion. I ate SO much at dinner that I thought I was going to have the baby just because there wasn't enough room.

 

It looks like some of the kinks are being worked out here, slowly but surely. I still prefer our old format, but progress is good.

 

Man, that baby picture thread is YUMMY! I want mine on the outside!
