Epidural? No thanks, I'm alright.


Maybe I'm naive , but I really think I won't need any drugs when the time will come to give a birth to our baby girl.  I'm very confident and optimistic to face this big challenge, but saying that I keep my mind open. The last thing I want to do is to play a martyr in such an important day. So when I will really need it , I'll ask for painkillers. 
 ( I'm definitely going to try gas and air regardless of whether I need it or not, because I really want to find out if that makes me high , haha! )

To prepare myself for this big day, I use visualization technique and relaxations. I also created a list of birth preferences. Here are my requests:

1. Warm bath with foam and candles
2. Chilled champagne
3. Professional masseuse from Thailand :D

That might not happen, so just in case I prepared plan B, which I think sounds more realistic:

* I would like to have medical free labour and birth if possible, but I may change my mind during the course of the labour.

* During the labour and childbirth I would like to stay upright and mobile for as long as possible.

* I hope to use fallowing:

- birthing ball
- birthing chair
- shower
- music
- massage
- warm compresses to vaginal area for relaxation and comfort


*My preferred methods on pain relief:

-shower
-massage
-breathing techniques

* I would like to try a variety of pushing positions: 

- squatting
- kneeling
- side-lying
- on all fours

* I would like to touch my baby's head and see it when it goes through my birth canal.
( Perhaps I will very quickly change my mind when it comes to the real thing!!! Haha )

I'm also working on playlist with music I like which I hope to listen during labour :D


And that's how I imagine my big day, haha!

Journey. That will be a title for the next year starting from today.

Last year I asked myself out loud "how my life can change in a year from today?" I was open to all possibilities and I'm still amazed by the result. I didn't blog so much but that's fine. I was more present on the Instagram shearing pieces of my life with my friends and creating memories for myself.
Impossible it nothing. I experienced it again. Still waiting for the results from college but I think I can say that I finished Fashion Styling with Designer course.
Tomorrow I'm starting an internship in Primark HQ Design Department.

Sunday, 8pm and I'm still catching up on my college homework. I had 3 weeks break for Xmas but didn't do much. Ups... My entire household was under flu quarantine, except myself :) I was doing as a nurse.
Bart says I had magical powers, that keeps germs and viruses away from me. But I claim, it is just the simple power of the mind! :D Every night I listen to some positive affirmations and I guess that does the trick. And I'm pretty sure that this year I'm going to win Euromillions because of that!


Till next Sunday!

I still can't wrap my head around it! How the hell I became a full-time student?! I didn't plan it, that's for sure. But I got this idea, in the back of my head and then I sent an email, went for an interview and bum! I'm a Fashion Styling student :D


Let's go back to the day I went for another interview. It was a job interview for an office assistant after which I knew I don't want to spend my whole day in front of the desk, answering phones and dealing with complaints and queries. No! No! No! I felt it in every part of my body, I don't want to stay here. I don't wanna do what I was doing before either. I lost my enthusiasm although I was pretty sure that I'm going in the right direction.

I got an extra push from my career counselor and I sent an email to college with the question if I can still apply for this year although the course has started already. On the next day, I went for an interview, showed my artwork and became a Fashion student. I cri…
