Last Christmas, Dan's mother put under the tree a pregnancy book for me YOU: Having a Baby by Dr. Oz (you know, the Oprah doctor that seems to talk about poop every time he went on her show). This BIG book is supposed to be my way to a happy and healthy pregnancy! So I started to learn about the miracle of making a baby.
I know that pregnancy is much more complex than the "birds and the bees" and that it is very important to have as much knowledge as possible on the subject...'cause you know, knowledge is power! However, with great knowledge (DNA, placenta formation, invasive tests, toxins in food, etc.) comes great fears and many "what if" that could ruin the life of my future child.
And then I looked at the many animals that we have this weekend (we have Mr. Poon - cat and Brian - dog but we are also babysitting Molly - dog, Criquette - cat and Maurice - fish) and I asked myself if I should give more power to my natural instincts, my "animal" instincts and forget a bit about the many (many many many) books that I want to read?
And I'm pretty sure that cats don't perform perineum massage!
