The thought of a little one in my arms again sends me into a place of mixed emotion. Both the thought of holding him or her close to me, nursing and rocking, and also sleep deprivation and hormonal upheaval! All of it, good & bad, is beckoning me.
I am not currently expecting, and my body knows this. My body knows a lot of things, and it's not letting me in on the secret. Ever since my last child was born, I've said before & I'll say it again, I haven't been the same.
Losing weight is a laughing matter. I haven't given up though. Weight loss may in fact *help* me to conceive again. But the very reason I'm having trouble conceiving is the very thing that keep me from shedding even one single pound. They are interconnected. Hormones.
Seriously, this may sounds crazy cray, but today I'm giving away some things in my house made of plastic. LIke children's toys that haven't been used regularly for some time. Plastics can disrupt our hormonal mojo. Since I'm active, eat relatively well, love Jesus, practice forgiveness and drink lots of water, avoid the foods I'm sensitive to…well the plastics purge thing might be my next step in attempting to declutter my health.
Sending love & baby vibes your way,
