Breathe Easy, You've Found Me ((HUGS))

People will wonder why this blog is needed, why minority midwifery student? It's very simple actually; I was looking for this blog...but I couldn't find it...so I created it. We all have unique experiences, and every experience, every story, can help someone else. I am a black girl from the hood at an ivy league professional school. That, alone, is reason enough to write. Somebody was looking for this blog. Someone wanted proof that what I'm doing can be done - even when you come from where we come from.

To that person especially, WELCOME.

Nesting

Over at a fellow student nurse-midwife's blog I just read a post about nesting. Nesting is the term used to describe the time at which a woman who is at the end of her pregnancy readies herself and her environment for the inevitable birth. I realize now that I, too, have been nesting.

I have been trying to finish the novel I'm reading, keep the house clean, wash up as many clothes as I can afford, and plan out meals for the next two weeks all in an effort to prepare for what's ahead of me when I can no longer do all of these things successfully. I am also throwing out a lot of those "school's about to start" hints to the man. I think he's ready, and that's priceless.

I agree that my partner's support is the most important thing that needs to be "ready." I've been blessed with a real gem... and couldn't do it without him. :)

I tried to ease the transition for my son this semester, but it was so hard! We had really gotten accustomed to waking up whenever we wanted and going to bed when we were done watching a movie or whatever! the 5:30am alarm clocks and piles of dirty dishes this week have been a little painful!
