This may or may not be the post you’d like to read. There are some rather detailed photos if you’re not keen on blood, or organ viewing. Now that the warning is out of the way lets get down to business. Throughout my pregnancy I had always planned on consuming my placenta. This is far more common than you think! Some people make an art print out of theirs from the web of veins, others bury theirs and plant a tree over it. Both I think are lovely ideas! Others save a dried bit of the umbilical cord in a piece of jewelry. While I think that is cool, I also don’t think I’d wear it. 😉 —>
I have to admit, I have gotten so caught up in this kid making his arrival in the world that I have been off my game. Unorganized, tired and definitely in a lull. Today we are currently at 40 weeks + 4days and I am impatient to say the least!

All at once I was surrounded by your energy. Your presence. Figures moved swiftly yet, quietly around me, but I couldn’t see them clearly in my periphery. My attention was solely focused on you. —>
To say I am a perfectionist is an understatement. For whatever reason, I have always put a lot of pressure on myself to perform. Dance monkey, dance! Not always the healthiest approach to things, but it motivated me to complete whatever the task at hand was. There is a downside to this approach as well. One that I am discovering more and more, is holding me back more than motivating me.
