it's because I had a baby. I imagine I'll put up some pictures of my new precious little one. I have some posts on the back burner, mostly recipes, ready to go for this occasion, so unless I hit a batch of blogger's block before then, I should still be able to provide some new reading material.
I've been having a lot of contractions. My midwife says that being overactive, dehydrated, or calcium deficient can cause a lot of "practice" contractions. I've been real careful, although with my nesting, I'm not going to stop with my activity level. A few contractions have taken me off guard, but most are just pressure.
Tonight is the full moon. I asked my midwife about the connection between going into labor and the full moon. My cycles have always been in line with the moon's, in case you were wondering, so I was curious on her take. She said she never saw a real connection between full moons and women going into labor. She has student midwives who work as doulas on the side. One of the slightly more organized student midwives piped in that on the last full moon, she had attended three births as a doula and the midwife had attended one. So, we'll see.
