I wanted this.. I wanted to experience being pregnant and giving birth. It is so beautiful. I feel like a beautiful fertility goddess during the times when I am not so overwhelmed with un-comforts. I want to show my buldging belly to everyone! I love feeling the soft kicks inside me- even though it is a little strange.
I will be 30 weeks along in a couple days. Which means 10 weeks to go. It seams so long when I put it like that. I can't wait to meet this little guy that I am already so in love with. I hope and pray and meditate that everything will go smoothly with his birth that I am going to attempt naturally. I can't wait to show the world what our love made!
He is measuring exactly for my due date. My amniotic fluid is at a great level (17, I guess). According to the ultrasound he weighs 2 lbs 10 oz. He isn't Breech. He is still a boy!
I had my blood test for Gestational Diabetis, I passed. I had my iron count taken, it's perfect.
I caught a glimps of his face, and even though ultrasounds are so vague when it comes to facial features- he is the little boy in my dreams- completely how I picture him. She didn't get a good shot of his face for a pic- but I saw it, and he is (going to be) too cute for words.
It's a great day to know that everything is still perfect with my little boy and this pregnacy. I keep passing little milestones I set for myself, and working on visualizing and manafesting a perfect, natural, full-term, birth. I am just so excited to meet my little boy- my Love Child.
I just got 2 new books in the mail today: "Hypnobirthing" and "Magical Beings, Enchanted Lives- A Holistic Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth" I was really missing having something to read, because I finished "Ina May's Guide to Childbirth" last week.
The Plain Truth from the cattle rancher who won't eat meat.
By Howard Lyman
FROM THE PUBLISHER;
Lyman is well aware of what goes into our livestock - high doses of pesticides, growth hormone, and the ground-up remains of other animals. A fourth-generation Montana farmer, he regularly doused his cattle and soil with chemicals. It was only when he narrowly escaped paralysis from a spinal tumor that Lyman began to question his vocation and the effect it was having on people and on the land he loved. The questions he raised and the answers he found led him, surprisingly, to adopt a vegetarian diet. As a result, he lost 130 pounds and lowered his cholesterol by more than 150 points. He is now one of America's leading spokesmen for vegetarianism. Along the way, Lyman learned even more about the alarming dangers associated with eating meat. Here he blasts through the propaganda of the beef and dairy industries (and the government agencies that often protect them) and exposes an animal-based diet as the primary cause of cancer, heart disease, and obesity in this country.
