…really I do.  I have attempted to blog 3 times now.  Starting when I was pregnant, sometime in between and, well.. this time.  I vow to at least post something once a week.  This week, I wish to dedicate this entry to my butt-doctor.  Oh yes, butt-doctor.

What is a butt-doctor you might wonder.  In this case, it is a she…. and she is a miracle worker, also known as a Pelvic Floor (among other things) Physical Therapist.  For the last 3.5 years my tookus has ached horribly when I sit, drive, exercise, move, etc.  My beautiful Buggie broke my tailbone during her entrance to the world, and my amazing butt-doctor is helping fix it.  I should have started seeing her sooner, but I thought time would heal all wounds, after all the song says so.  But it lies.

My first appointment was early last week.  It was the most intense, uncomfortable, painful, embarrassing appointment of my life besides delivering an almost 9lb child 2 weeks past her due date.  But it is so worth it.  I felt so much better after seeing her last week.  But on Sunday I got the phone call from her staff letting me know she was canceling all appointments for the next week.  She was hospitalized with Altitude Sickness.  Poor dear!  Recover quickly, I need you!!

The ick of it all…

It is 10:39am, and I still have the taste of that rancid stuff in my mouth.  It looked a bit like tar first thing this morning, but had more of a warm honey consistency and tasted like pureed grass and what I think crude oil tastes like, though I have never tried crude oil.  And I drank it.  Why you ask?  I am detoxing.  No, I am not a drug user or alcoholic, but I am a middle aged woman who has more hurdles than some when it comes to creating life.  I will get back to that topic another time.  But for now, we are talking detox.  Cilantro detox for heavy metals to be exact.  A Quote from one of those self help websites: “Cilantro has been found to chelate (remove) heavy metals like mercury, aluminum, and lead from the body. In fact, it is believed to cross the blood-brain barrier and actually remove said metals from the brain.”  I couldn’t make that stuff up if I tried.  This is day 3, and to be honest, it is getting easier.  So far I have only gagged once, and not tossed my cookies yet.  Go me!

Now the why… We will be trying for one more child soon.  With the issues I have with my health (another topic(s) for later), I am doing everything I can to create a happy and healthy environment for the possibility of having one more child grow in my belly.

When Buggie came along 3 years ago we weren’t even trying, weren’t prepare, and weren’t worried.  I had endured 2 miscarriages many years before that awesome day when we found out we were expecting her.  I didn’t think anything of them, albeit painful and traumatic, I assumed they were a fluke thing and life goes on. Boy was I wrong, but.. I will come back to that too some other time.

Long story short, I am cleaning out the old system.  Prepping for what I hope will be a smooth ride into Motherhood one last time.  We plan to start trying again in September.  That gives me three months to get my plan in order.
