OMG, I know I've talked about this, but I do EMDR, to help with the trauma of losing my pregnancies. I'm so glad it worked for you.
And I am sad about your cold and pink eye, I think there is something going on all over the blogosphere this week. Everyone is sick, or hormonal or something. Take care, sending you great big bloghugs!


I did that therapy too and I'm glad to read what’s its called in your post. I was telling a friend about it the other day and couldn’t remember the name.

I had so many frightful memories of Gabrielle’s birth that I was constantly re-living it in my had on a daily basis and this therapy helped me evacuate the intensity of the feelings felt during these flashbacks. I thought it was a bit weird too but it helped me in the end. I had at least three double sessions, that’s how much I had in my head!

Best wishes from me,


You might be extra-stuffy because of the pregnancy hormones. I felt like I had a cold the whole time.

That was a lovely post.

I recall how excited I was to hear the heartbeat at the doctor's office (my husband wouldn't let me get a Doppler since he knew I would freak out about any irregularities that normally occur--and he was right--I was already pretty freaked out about everything and untrusting that an actual baby would come out of the pregnancy).

But I never listen to my baby's heartbeat now. I kind of miss it. I guess I could go wrestle her down and make it a game and try to listen to it over her giggles, but I'd rather hear the giggles.

When I had my bleeding scare, I lost old blood for WEEKS. Just a heads-up.
