I am pissy today, I don't know why, I just am. I think it has a lot to do with starting 
back to work. Or maybe it has something to do with getting in a big fight with the 
hubby this morning, come to think of that may be the result of my pissyness. I can 
say that I'm happy to hear that I'm not crazy, honestly in my last post I thought I 
was revealing something that was going to get me committed. Turns out, I am just 
like everyone else on these IF blogs, so either we're all fine, or we're all crazy.

Ok, so lets start with work. My first day back was yesterday, and it started with a 
prenatal yoga class. Yup, jumping right back into the sea of baby bumps! Later that 
evening I taught my HypnoBirthing class, more baby bumps! Last nights class was 
special because I called in guest speakers, happy new parents and their itty bitty 
little newborn. I usually have couples come in and talk about their HypnoBirth on
the last day so the soon to be parents can hear a story from a real live couple 
(rather then the birth video's). For some reason though, this time was really hard
on me, I had to turn away as they talked about how amazing the experience was 
and how in love they are. 

Today I am off to help a client with her newborn for the afternoon, this babe was 
born early in Sept. and he's giving his Mommy a hard time, so off I go to hold the baby
so she gets a bit of a break. Shortly after that I will be teaching a prenatal Auqafit, my
favorite class, but on any given thursday there is nearly 25 pregnant woman in 
attendance. Tomorrow is more of the same thing, the next day too, it never ends.......
all day, everyday I am trying my best to swim in this sea of baby bumps, but today 
I'm finding it really hard to find the surface. 


  1. I really don't know how you do all of that! I hope things start to feel better soon.

  2. All you can do is just keep trying to stay afloat. Like the previous poster, I'd have a hard time dealing with all of that. I admire you!

  3. You deserve a gold medal for doing the job you do. Kudos to you.

    Thank you so much for your comment to my perspective post. It made me a little teary-eyed. Looking at hats that tiny makes my heart ache, but knowing how much they mean to parents' makes me want to knit up 100 of them.

    Take care.

  4. We should erect a statue in your honour!! I can't believe that you have to deal with all of those baby bumps!

    I'm sending you big, big hugs!

  5. I seriously don't understand how you get through it. Sending lots of Love and a life vest your way :)

  6. Just to reiterate the already stated, I really admire your ability to do your job. I have had times when I couldn't even sit in the same room with a woman visibly pregnant. And if I had to talk, spitting needles was more like what I did. You are amazingly self-disciplined. And you have every right to be in a pissy mood.

  7. You're amazing Tishi, you really are. To do what you do has to be hard and I'm sure what imagine isn't even close to what it's really like. You have every right to be in a pissy mood. You grin and bare a lot in a work day. So if ONE day out of how many your pissy than I say so be it.

  8. I dont know how you do it, but it's amazing and inspiring! Sorry your having a bad day - maybe we can blame it on the full moon last night?! That's what I always do. I was pissy last night for sure. Hugs, hopefully your day got better as it went along.xoxoxox

  9. It's so tough and I also admire your strength to work through all of this to help people. It's rewarding and painful. My heart really believes you are given this struggle so that one day you'll come out on the other side - the greatest support someone can receive is from those who have shared in the experience. xox

  10. You continue to amaze me - I don't know that I could do your job. Everybody has a pissy day or two, or hundred... It's ok - you can give yourself permission to be grumpy, and it will be ok.

  11. What a brave woman you are to continue working among baby bumps...I just don't know how you do it! And, it's okay...have a pissy day. We all have them!

  12. I agree with everyone. You are so generous to give of yourself in this way. It will come back to you!
