Vlog update on becoming a surrogate and preparing for pregnancy.
This year is the year of manifestation for me. I have been discovering my own power of being able to manifest the things I want and desire. Back in January I created a vision board to help me focus and work towards the things I want to accomplish this year. I’m happy to report that most of my vision board has been completed or being actively worked on. I have a new job that I love. I have completed all three levels of Reiki training and now am a Reiki Master. I have improved my spiritual practice and continue to work at it constantly; I practice mediation everyday, and have even obtained my certification in meditation. I am currently working on another certification. I’m attending an extremely intense holistic health coaching and nutrition program, which will take me a year to complete. And the last thing on my vision board to complete is finally coming to fruition.
Last year I began researching and exploring the possibility of become a surrogate. This is something I have been wanting to do for the past 15 years. On September 18, 2014 I applied to become a surrogate. It was my youngest son’s first birthday. I went through all the paper work application, the interview, background check, psychological exam, medical reviews and after many, many months I was finally matched with a gentleman 2 hours away from where I live.
Today I begin the first physical part of the process by starting birth control pills. I am not looking forward to taking this or the hormone injections I need to do because of the synthetic chemicals and side effects that my body will encounter. But it will only be for a short time and it will be all worth it in the end.
At the end of the month I will travel to Connecticut to see a fertility specialist and have an internal exam. If everything checks out ok, I will begin hormone injections. I have spent the last few months cleansing, praying, meditating, and getting my body ready to undergo this miracle of life, so that I can share my body to help create a family.
Jason and I will be documenting this experience through blogs and vlogging. I am so excited to take this journey, and will go into this experience with no expectation and will allow things to unfold as they are intended too. I look at my beautiful boys and can’t imagine not being able to have them in my life. Not to be able to hold them when they cry, see their sweet little faces when they wake up, not to see them develop and grow into the people they are meant to become, and all the other wonderful and not so wonderful things that come with being a parent. I am honored and humbled that I can provide this for a family or someone that has not been able to conceive a child. And I am looking forward to this beautiful experience.
So many of my friends are having babies. So I thought I would post on how I got rid of my son’s cradle cap, since it is a common issue that comes up with infants. My baby is now 14 months and when he was a newborn, he had a bad case of cradle cap.
Using my dōTERRA oils, I got rid of it all in less than an hour. And here is what I did:
2 tbs of Organic Olive oil
1 drop of Lemon Essential Oil
1 drop of Geranium Essential oil
(Please be sure to use a Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Oil)
I applied the mixture to my baby’s scalp and allowed it to set for 20 minutes. To keep the oil from staining any clothing or blankets, I placed a cotton hat on him. After 20 minutes I applied a little more olive oil and used a soft baby brush to gently massage his scalp, by making small circles around the area with the cradle cap. I washed his hair twice and it was completely gone.
