After time adrift among open stars
along tides of light and through shoals of dust - I will return to where I began

rough week, rough weekend. I’ve been really emotional and upset so drawing is a good way to let off some steam. Have a Wrex doodle :)

No but seriously anti vacc people make me so angry. SO. ANGRY.

When I see anti vaccination posts floating around, it always makes me feel stupidly guilty. Like, I feel that I need to reiterate and explain my genetically inherited trypanophobia, to reinforce the understanding that I’m NOT WITH THOSE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE VACCINATIONS ARE HARMFUL OR UNNECESSARY.

I feel guilty every flu season for not going and getting a shot. Because it’s so accessible and should be so easy for me to go do. But I never know if the person giving the shots has even heard of trypanophobia, or would even consider it to be a real issue that I need understanding, sympathetic help with whenever I do get a shot. I can work myself up to it, if it isn’t optional. I can do it. I just need the time, consideration, and the space to express how my vasovagal reflex reaction affects my body, and my fear of it.

Tryphanophobia with the vasovagal reflex is one of the few phobias that has actually KILLED people who suffer from it, due to the blood pressure spike pre-injection, and then the blood pressure bottoming out post-injection. It’s not a joke. I’m not faking it. This thing could quite possibly kill me with any injection I get. So could any serious illness I catch.

My midwives want me to be on an antibiotic IV during labor, because it turns out that I AM positive for Group B Strep, which has shown to cause serious health repercussions for infants who get infected with it. I’m having to weigh the health of my son against the likelihood that the IV will trigger my vasovagal reflex and cause horrific labor complications.

There really isn’t any winning in this situation and it frustrates me to tears.

This stuff is weighing so heavily on me. We’ve opted out of the IV and signed the waver, but even though my baby’s risk of infection is incredibly minuscule (in the neighborhood of .5%), the fact remains that there is a measure I could take to reduce it further and I’m not. I’m being horrifically selfish.

DO IT NOW: Guide to Proper Bra Fit and Measuring because Victoria Secret and La Senza and whatever are full of shit and you are definitely wearing the wrong size ok? ok


Hi guys I’m obsessed with this shit lately because I don’t want anyone to have unhappy, unsupported boobs like I did. Even if you think your boobs and bras are fine, try it. It will make a big difference in comfort, support, and shape, even if you have small boobs or big boobs. A proper fitting bra can fix back, shoulder, and neck pain, along with breast soreness - and it can help you look 10lbs lighter, and your breasts a hell of a lot perkier. This guide also works for proper-sized bikinis and bathing suits (many online stores linked to below sell both- sometimes for as low as 10$!)

Don’t just like this, REBLOG IT. EVERYBODY WITH BOOBS DESERVES A PROPER FIT. Even if you don’t wear bras yourself, spread it around to tumblr or with your friends or family.

»Anderson and Shepard Cut Dialog «

"Think how proud your kids would be, telling everyone their — their mom is Commander Shepard.”

"I don’t know about that. Not everything I’ve done is something to be proud of.”

I’m proud of you.”

That fucking audio. I am crying. Actual tears. Goddammit.

Just so people know, this only plays if you didn’t romance anyone

Unless my 100% romance-less Shepard (all the way through 1, 2 and 3) glitched out, NO it does NOT play if you didn’t romance anyone.

Worries and things about labor under the cut.

Some (Week 29) maternity pictures that we took out at the Mendenhall Glacier a few days ago at my grandma’s request so that she could send them out with the baby shower invitations. Casey’s become a stellar cameraman to have made my unphotogenic derp face look so nice.

I’m reasonably satisfied with these. I love that shirt and my hair looks really cool. :3 Plus, jeez, look at that bottom left shot. Mountains + glacier + waterfall!

It’s allergy season, and the cottonwood around here has been absolutely murdering my sinuses. I’ve had a near-constant cough this last week, and so I’ve been taking Benadryl before bed. But I can’t seem to find more than two sources that have the same opinion on the risks of taking Benadryl during pregnancy. Which is horrifically nerve-wracking, let me tell you. I worry I’m putting my kid at risk just to get a more comfortable rest. Some sources say the depressant effects cross the placenta, some say they don’t. Am I being horrifically selfish by taking Benadryl? 

 I’m also worried about the flights we’re taking in a few days. If everything’s going to be okay, what if I start spotting, and what if I go into preemptive labor like all the stories I’ve heard. Everything will most likely be fine, as I’ve got excellent family history regarding pregnancy and birth, and there’s been absolutely nothing out of the ordinary with this kid and I.

Nobody really warns you how significantly WORRY factors into everything once you’re pregnant.

On a far, far more positive note, last night Casey essentially agreed to my baby name choice. :3 “Let’s try using it just between us and see if it sticks.” I’ve already caught myself mentally using it, so at least as far as me, it’s definitely sticking. 

I love how much the baby reacts to Casey’s voice. <3 Casey was reading off a recipe we were going to use, and when I told him how active Player 3 was being in response, Casey put his head on my belly, kept reading, and got kicked in the ear three times. XD 

So someone said to me that you can never meet a good person off the Internet. I want to prove them wrong. Reblog if you’ve met someone from the Internet and they’ve turned out to be one of the best people to ever exist.
