love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
my boobs are sore as hell today. last month i didnt get sore boobs until damn near my period started. but the month before, i had sore boobs for a full week before.
i’ve been having mild cramps. nothing unbearable, but usually when i cramp i have shooting pains down my left leg and my left foot cramps real bad (i have NO idea why). so today and yesterday my left knee and foot have been hurting and i feel those early cramps.
oh GREAT NEWS. we met with a midwife today that does homebirths which is my dream. a birthing center was going to be our compromise but after some interactions with them, we realized that is NOT conducive to us and our family to be. i was ready to settle on our regular ob-gyn because she’s supportive of natural births as well. but this woman that we met today is GREAT!!!! omg i can’t rave enough about her. first of all, she spoke to BOTH OF US like we are the mothers equally. and A involved me in the conversation wholeheartedly (i wonder if she secretly read my blog… she quoted something from it *side eye*). she also was very laid back, yet knowledgeable and very pro-natural remedies, but still realizing the need for medical intervention when necessary. and she LOOOOOOVES tea tree oil, hee hee.
so all in all, i STILL need to have the convo with A (i’m a punk, please believe this) but i’m feeling a lot better now. 5 days to go until testing!
