Edition-Georges Chakra spring/sum 2011

October 19, 2010

So lately I’ve been watching Fashion TV. Don’t ask me why. I just like to see the pretty things I can never afford. Anyhow, I saw a line tonight that I LOVED. Take a look at these dresses.

You will definitely want to go full screen.

Sorry about the month long hiatus. I had a baby on July 13th and becoming a mother is apparently very time consuming. That being said, I will provide information and pictures now.

My labor wasn’t bad. It started and stopped from about 4 a.m. till about 3 ish, when it started again and stayed. It’s a good thing too, because I was about ready to accept some pitocin to induce steady progression, and I really didn’t want to do that as it makes your contractions longer and harder.  Then, just as they were about to break my water, my water broke. All over the nurse who was standing in front of me waiting to do it. After that things got fun.

The contractions were a lot more painful than I had imagined. I suppose that’s because I didn’t have any similar experience to compare it to while imagining it. I had every intention of doing a completely natural birth, but by the time I reached 7 cm I caved and accepted an Epidural. I am glad that I did. After that, everything was very pleasant and enjoyable and I did not have the ‘drugged’ feeling that I was worried about. I only pushed for thirty minutes and she was born. 8 lbs 12 oz and 21 inches long. They handed her to me right away and didn’t even take her to clean her up for several hours, giving Nick and I the bonding time we wanted. I have to say the Clarksville hospital was wonderful and I couldn’t have had better nurses or doctors.

On to the pictures!

Eureka!

I just realized I never put up pics of our Eureka Springs trip. Shame on me. The trip was great!

Get Out of My Belly!

July 4, 2010

I cannot express to you how badly I want this baby to hurry up and be born. She feels like she weighs about 20 lbs and it hurts when she stretches. I can no longer lay, sit or stand comfortably, which translates to “I am always uncomfortable.”  Thursday the doc said I was dilated 1 cm. That night I had a couple of contractions that were accompanied by lower back pain and I thought “Finally!” But alas, after two measly contractions, all activity ceased. Friday night the same thing happened. Nothing last night. Anyways, I’m sure that any of you reading this who have ever been pregnant know exactly how I feel. If something doesn’t happen soon, I might go crazy. Wish me luck.

I was noticing today that drying my legs off after a shower is becoming increasingly difficult. I am nine months and counting now. 36 weeks, to be exact.

Nick and I have recently switched up out big birthing plans. We had planned a homebirth with a wonderful midwife, but, due to complications (that had nothing to do with her or my health) we have switched gears and will now be birthing at the Clarksville hospital. We were disappointed at first, but we are going to make the very best of it and it will be just fine.

We are taking a trip to Eureka Springs next Tuesday and Wednesday. We got a room at the Crescent Hotel and we may go and see Cosmic Caverns while we are there. It’s just going to be a chill, relaxing trip. We have actually never taken a trip together and we wanted to do that before Dylan is born. I’m super excited.

I absolutely loved this article. It is so brutishly honest and I honestly hope to feel the same way. I will now spend a silly amount of time looking for more of her stuff to read.
