Didn't realize that was affected by the site update. I'll fix this as soon as I can.

Also, gonna fix spoiler tags. Didn't know they weren't working either until tonight.

I'm 9 weeks pregnant and my mind has been going into overdrive. I don't remember thinking or feeling this much last time around. I've already given birth yet I'm scared out of my mind to have to do it again. :(
My sis is preggers, scared the shit outta me. Cant imagine being it yourself.
Truthfully can't imagine being pregnant there. Home births and no pain meds? I would die. I want a kraamzorg (sp?) though, that sounds like a god send.
I think you're more capable and stronger than you give yourself credit for. I won't rant about home births because I know that you know my thoughts about it but just consider that your body knows what it's doing and ultimately everything will probably be okay. :)

@dawn and @MsTK, is cannabis harmful to the baby? of course smoking is, but i mean cleaner methods such as edibles. some high CBD, low THC edibles could benefit you mentally. always kills anxiety for me. it has the benefit of not being a "hard drug" as well.

 

meditation could help even more. just takes 10 mins a day starting out, and with practice, you will see incredible results in your frame of mind. hit me up if you need a little starter guide. it's basically just sit and breathe, concentrating only on that breath.

 

drink green tea for the theanine content. also a relatively harmless anxiolytic. exercise (but you know that). talk to people when you need to vent, etc... put dawnie on speed dial. :p

Oh no hate for home births. It's just not for me. I had such a terrible labor and delivery last time and then getting PPD/thyroid issues just kicked my ass for years. I'll also be away from family this time and can ony hope that my boyfriend will be here too. So many unknown variables that stress me out. Tomorrow I get to see if the doctors will consider me high risk too. :(

@Folksy, truthfully I was vaping CBD oil (from portland, legit stuff; high THC low CBD) hours before I took my pregnancy test. Everything i've researched is unclear for CBD oils and pregnancy, cannabis is a no though. Stunts growth and baby can withdraw if i remember right from my searches. There's also very limited info for legal reasons. I'll more than likely turn back to it after having baby. It was able to help without knocking me out like xanax did.

word. i have a vape myself. haven't tried oil in it yet. access is limited to only dank flower atm. can't complain. it contains enough medicine that i can run the same bud through two sessions.

 

why say high THC oil, yet call it CBD? just wondering if that was a mixup. anyways, best to play it safe and abstain until the birth. good plan and good luck. can't see any reason why you have to quit forever though. ;]

 

it really does beat the hell out of true narcotic solutions like benzos (eff those).

Hm? that's the traditional way, since the 2000's it's been 65%+ hospital births. Now vast majority (around 80%, different sources say different shit) give birth in hospitals and what seems to be around 35% get an epidural, plenty get other kinds of pain meds especially since the 2008 directive on pain medication during childbirth which had a more positive stance on it (http://www.nvog.nl/upload/files/definitief-richtlijn-pijnbehandeling-bij...).

So yes, we are more home birth oriented than most countries still, but it's not the norm by any means. The percentage of home births is a bit higher among the highly educated female population. 

you spelled kraamzorg correctly, probably also have much better working conditions regarding weeks off after birth but I havent looked into it. I know we're not exceptional for European standards though.

The cartridge was THC and CBD, I just remember that THC was really high 50-60% and the CBD was really really really low. To be honest I just remember the guy saying that and not sure if there's a difference or that's normal. He was mentioning how I would want low CBD for anxiety. Maybe higher CBD is only for medicinal? The shop was really confusing. I spent close to an hour talking to him about edibles and CBD products.

 

@Slater, that's actually surprising. I was picturing it still being very old school. Maybe I'm just thinking of his friends-- they're from the small villages up north and not even sure if they've seen a doctor in their pregnancies yet. The maternity leave is good, paternity leave is so bad.  My boyfriend found out it's only 2 days and then he has to use holiday time. 

Tried to post from imgur and it's failing, http://imgur.com/7wcG2Nq. Baby from today at 9wks, looks like a little gummy bear. :3 I could see it twisting and moving as well as kicking it's little legs and arms out. 

Last time Connor went from blob to skeletal baby so it's pretty cool looking to me. May find out the gender by next appointment. 

Awesome. Congrats!

Sure, regional differences aplenty. Not having seen a doctor I would doubt but I dont know these folks. Paternity leave is indeed very limited, there is parental leave though. Where you can take 26x your weekly hours off unpaid and max 50% of your weekly hours a week. Some employers pay some hours on those days, but mostly its unpaid. My colleagues who are young fathers or mothers take 1 day a week off, their spouses 1 or 2 as well and the rest the kids go to daycare or grandparents.

Tired of blizzards bullshit. "Oh hey our servers are fucking up but we're going to kick you from a ranked match, not let you have the option to rejoin, suspend you even though the match hasnt started and drop your rank because fuck you"
Allison does this mean no more cam shows

that shopowner was either severely mistaken or you are just misremembering. anxiety and even panic attacks are a real side effect of a little too much THC (mostly in the non-tolerant, or trying edibles when used to smoking, etc.). however cbd on the other hand has powerful anti-anxiety effects.

just something important to keep in mind next time you go back in a weed store. maybe you can school them.

It depends if my job has to let me go or not. My work study will run out and there's a dumb hiring freeze. ;_;

im still considering it, just no face. It's that or streaming on twitch. 

 

@folksy, I could be remembering wrong but I do know the package was high thc and low CBD. At first I was asking about lotions but he said that was more for pain and then talked me into the oils to vape. That's when he went information overload on me. I had to tell him that I just needed something for anxiety and he gave me an indica cartridge. It's called Select brand I think, it might have the breakdown on the percentages. I never got "high" with it, just took my anxiety away and felt normal so I've liked it a lot.

I remember a debate on the last forum over whether or not Asperger's is an actual thing

what was that about, and who was on which side? I'm reminded of it upon hearing the term every time

You mean ass burgers?
