Pregnancy Ultimatums

Every day during my pregnancy, I’m forced to make the choice between eating something delicious and being able to sleep at night. Yeah, I tend to choose the salsa or hot sauce or carbonated beverage… Now I must live with the consequences of being up all night burping, thinking I’m about to puke, trying to fall asleep upright, and stifling the acid reflux with off-brand Tums.

Monday Bun Day! 🍞 

"NOW it looks like a belly," says my husband after taking this photo. Apparently, I was showing no signs of pregnancy until I was 38.5 weeks into this…

Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature that he has been destroying is this God he’s worshiping.

A friend challenged me and Káva to show off our favorite tricks to raise awareness and donations for animal rescue! This is my favorite cause, and I’m thrilled to bring attention to the beautiful animals — like Káva — who were adopted from rescues! Today, I donated to the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF), who fostered Káva back in 2009. If you can, please consider giving any amount/items/time to your favorite local rescue! 

I’ll tag brat-squad, jillynbrady, icarntspell, villegasbobby, chelseanotkelsey, thebusiness, and underbiteunite. AND ALL OF YOU WHO WOULD LIKE TO HELP WITH THIS CAUSE! But mostly just because I want to see your precious pets make videos. No pressure, though!

Despite all of your much appreciated well wishes, our external cephalic version (AKA baby flip) was not successful today. The doctor and nurses could get her to rotate into the birth canal, but that little worm just squirmed back to her comfort zone. 

Everything went well, though, and she was never in distress. Just a sneaky little shit. The plan is still a natural labor and delivery, and we will see if she can flip in her own chosen time. If not, then we will just have to go to Plan B. 

Again, thank you so much for all your kind words, thoughts, prayers, wishes, and vibes! You are all the best!

Prayers/Energy/Vibes Please?

Hey, guys! As you guys probably know, I’m 38 weeks pregnant (that’s out of a 40 week gestation period, my friends who may not be aware). What you don’t know is that my baby is currently in a breech position — which is just no good for those of us interested in a natural birth plan. By the way, only 3-4% of babes are breech (head not down in the birth canal) by week 37…so it’s sort of a raw deal.

We tried all kinds of things to encourage her to flip on her own. Weird stuff like swimming, handstands, underwater somersaults, yoga positions, peppermint oil, flashlight enticement, cold packs on my upper abdomen, playing music down by my junk — you name it! She just ain’t budgin’. 

We have a procedure scheduled this week called an “external cephalic version,” where doctors will try to turn her by manipulating her position from outside my belly. It’s kind of a last attempt for avoiding having to have a C-section. C-sections aren’t the devil, but they do have way more risks than a natural, intervention-free birth.

Could you please say a prayer, make a wish, send a vibe, and/or throw out some positive energy for us? I would appreciate it so much.

Thank you, everyone!!

Books are important and I like learning about other people and talking about myself o k

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard - they don’t have to be “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.
