There were 6 of us there last night, all of which were much further along than me, one mom was 41 weeks and 3 days. Many of them I gathered were regulars at Sarah's classes and I could see how they had bonded together which makes me love being around this community of strong women, and be a part of it again. Every class, we start by going around the room and say our name, how many weeks, and if there's anything going on in our bodies to be aware of, or request to focus on. A couple moms were talking about experiencing some, "fire crotch." Another mom in yoga last Saturday mentioned this too. And I'm like, quietly sitting there, thinking, "what???" haha. I vaguely remember from last time around that there can be a sensation of discomfort as your pelvis starts to loosen and get ready to open for baby, but is that fire crotch? It was something that had been talked about in classes that I wasn't there for, since everyone was nodding their heads in understanding for these moms. "Oh yes, fire crotch, don't worry, you've got this."
In my mind I imagined all of us super mamas giving birth with vaginas as flame throwers delivering babies who are born wearing metallic capes and tiny masks. Wa-pow! Power to our fire crotches! Anyway, I'll ask next class.
