Birth thoughts.

I have not one but THREE dear friends due to give light to their children within the next two months.  It has made my ovaries twitch, and made me reflect on life.

A second panel for vWD was run on me recently, and it showed no abnormalities.  In discussing this with my internist, she told me that I likely have a very mild mutation, which explains my tendency to bruise when the wind blows, but also explains why it doesn't always quant out in an ELIZA.

As much as I loved my last OB, he did what the first one did.  He tractioned.  I watched the clock - he gave me 15 minutes, and that's when he tractioned and I stopped just bleeding and began to gush.

I have informed Pater Puerii that we will be accidentally on purpose birthing at home.  I will go to clinic, but I'll be damned if I let them almost kill me a third time.

In light of all of this, I send nothing but the most blessed thoughts toward my birthing friends.  Congratulations in advance - you will have brought forth a beautiful little person into the light.

  1. I never heard the phrase "give light" to a baby used in English, it is what we call it in Spanish. Isn't it the most appropriate name though?
