    My first time meditating was an uncomfortable experience. I was out sick with an upper respiratory infection the week before. So with the medication and albuterol it made me very sleepy. I hope tomorrow’s session will be a better one since I am now starting to feel better.

  2. Okay, so this might not be the easiest question to answer, and I know that going into this… so here goes. I am 23 weeks pregnant. Baby Gabriel’s ETA is January 22nd, 2012. I have seen many videos on hypnobirth. Basically, from what I can take away from the stories and videos, you meditate, visualize the baby being born, and block out the frustration, pain and all the other “joys” of having the baby – so you can have the baby pain-free, stress-free, and medicine-free. I know meditation works, but will it work good enough for me to opt out of having an epidural? This is my first child and I’m pretty sure that other people on the Minding Life blog have experienced childbirth before. Am I crazy for wanting to pursue this? I want the epidural, but I don’t want all of the baggage that comes with it in years to come. Good idea or bad idea?
