I want to be this woman in the picture. Right here right now. When it’s your 3rd pregnancy you feel brave like a rebel and want to throw away the baby books of boredom and take the pregnancy into another exciting level. At least that’s how I feel. The first trimester had me worried I am not going to lie. Now being in my 2nd trimester I can relax a little. The doctor called me yesterday letting me know I no longer had a blood disorder so no blood thinner injections yay! My antibody little c is also very low so no worries there right now yay again!Still high risk for preterm labor but so far so freakin good.
Now I have been doing a lot of thinking with baby number 3. I have always been a free thinker when it comes to raising kids. I did a radical teaching method with my girls at one point called Unschooling. I always gave my girls choices. If they wanted public school they went. It soon came to a point where they and I were done with public for many reasons and they continued education online through internet academy’s taught all through the computer. Where am I getting with all this? Cloth diapers. I have decided after much research I am gonna try cloth diapers with my boy. I really wished I would have done this with my girls. I think even I was to scared to do this. I found some very good sites and learning all I can on the matter.
Which leads me to next big thing on my Natural baby raising list. Breastfeeding which I swore I would never do and actually couldn’t do because of being on blood thinners that would go into my milk supply. If everything stays safe and on the clear, I feel I would try this. I am reading as much as I can as I know nothing about this subject.
Now I can’t stop reading and filling my time with these new subjects. I am actually getting excited now as I feel I am headed into new territory. This is also helping me deal and cope with the baby bipolar blues I had been feeling. Keeping your brain active and clean makes everyday feel more easier to deal with. Since I am not on any medication it’s all about taking deep breaths, indulging in your favorite past times, and learning about new things. I really like the idea of safe tea drinking, burning incense and candles, dabbing essential oils, and writing away my thoughts…
Let’s get one thing strait, I hate labels. I never considered myself to fit into one sweet little box. I hold a vast mix of colors I like to paint with everyday. I love combination. I love taking my dark hallow self and splashing it with hippie gypsy soul, 80’s music and tribal boots that dance along Sedona red rock mountains. If you stumble across this blog and think the vibe is one feeling, it’s not. It ‘s a mix of my likes. It travels into different directions but then meets in the middle to blossom into something cool. You never know what surprise might hit you. I thrive like this.
