Most of the winter holidays are this week. Happy/Merry Hanukah, Solstice, Christmas, Festivus () or if you don't celebrate anything this week, I hope it's a lovely one for you and your family!:
|I love the original Christmas, the spirit of the holidays. I despise the materialistic present-grubbing that Christmas has become. I'm trying really hard to get into the spirit, but with the rest of the world pushing gifts, goodies, gimmee gimmee gimmee on my kids, it's hard. I want to just hide for the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Bah.|

Someone suggested craniosacral (sp?) therapy, but I don't know anything about it. Have to do some digging. Anyone else having low back issues?

My friend and I did a big toy drive up to the remote reserves, and baby sure liked the 4x4 (or hated it...)! Lots of kicking and poking as we drove along the logging roads. We stopped at a hot springs on the way back, but because the pools are too hot for baby, I dunked my legs while wearing as many layers on top as possible (it's -20 celsius here). The hot springs are so beautiful in all of the snow!

I have been taking a probiotic supplement "Jarrodophilus", for several months. BUT, possible TMI here, I have been having on and off whitish discharge in my panties. Creamy, I would say. No itching to accompany it, but I just can't decide if it is yeast or not... If it is, I guess I need to get in gear and work on that. Is that kind of fluid discharge yeast? Or just normal? It is annoying...and I don't want to deal with thrush and yeast in the newborn period if I don't have to. I never had it with my first LO. And I have never had a full blown yeast infection, although I have suspected them and treated with plain yogurt and probiotics. But never any strong symptoms that made me want to seek treatment, KWIM?
I am looking forward to Christmas, and afterward, starting to reorganize our house for new baby girl. Maybe stow some more furniture up in the attic, and find a place to set up the bassinet in our bedroom, and her clothes and diapers.

Any bending, lifting, stooping or leaning does it for me- ie, sweeping, tidying, etc. I don't expect to get any full relief, but some days are better than others, depending on my activities. Are you small-waisted? My sister who doesn't suffer from this seems to think it's because I normally have a tiny waist- and so somehow I don't have the support to balance the low load on the front.
