That seems to be a word I'm feeling and using a lot over these past few weeks.
What does it really mean?
- The state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint2.
exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc.
- The power to determine action without restraint.
- Philosophy-The power to exercise choice and make decisions without constraint from within or without; autonomy; self-determination.
I hear comments all the time, more than I'd like to in fact about what I'm going to do if I go over the magic 40 week mark or other stupid things that I've omitted from my memory. The most amazing thing about taking responsibility for my pregnancy? I don't have to do anything, be anywhere, scan or test anything. I'm free.
It's up to me, what I do and how I do it.
I had a discussion with a friend the other day and she asked me how this pregnancy has compared to the other two. It was an interesting thought.
Despite having what some would call two very 'textbook' pregnancies they were at the same time medical pregnancies. This time I have looked after myself and learnt to take ownership of my body and my baby.
I am free, enjoying the freedom of pregnancy without restraint, external control and interference!

So it would seem I'm still absolutely hopeless at maintaining a regular blog. Ahh well I'm sure the world kept going without me and my posting over-emotional pregnant nonsense.
So where I'm at...
I feel like a womyn with passion and a purpose. I feel honoured and strong and capable. I feel the wild womyn lurking deep within me and she comes closer and closer to the surface as each day passes. I feel her in my bones, pulsing through my blood and into my heart. She is holding me, pushing me and most of all she is there, watching and waiting for when I call her to my side.
