I went to hot yoga on Tuesday morning before work, which is nothing new. I always go to hot yoga on Tuesday mornings before work. There are times I miss my Friday practices, and times I miss my Saturday practices….but never my Tuesday ones. It’s like something in the universe calls my body to breathe, bow, and rise to greet the sun every Tuesday morning.
Anyway, class this Tuesday was more amazing than it usually was. After the yin/yang class I took on Sunday the Baptiste power flow felt so dramatic and dynamic. But in the best way possible. My hamstrings feel more stretched out than they have in months, and I, just in general, feel more loose than I have in months.
I’m going to take N’s yoga class on Saturday morning. She considers her yoga classes to be “restorative” yoga, so it’s quite different from both Baptiste power flow and yin yoga. I have a feeling that I’m to feel blissed out after taking a third type of yoga for the week.
I’m starting to wonder if my “yoga lesson” for the Summer is to consistently take different types of yoga classes. I’m still less than one full year into my yoga journey, so I’m still finding out what types suit me and what mixture of yoga classes allows me to feel my best. It’s definitely one of the deepest journeys I’ve ever taken inside myself. =)
Tomorrow morning I have an appointment with an OBGYN to discuss, well, getting a fertility test/getting a referral to the fertility center near us that offers LGBT family planning. I’ve got so many little nerves and apprehensions making my body tingle right now just thinking about the appointment!
What if the doctor is against gay marriage? What if she is absolutely disgusted that I’m looking to find “the doctor for us” as we start the journey of starting our own family?
I can’t possibly be the first lesbian lady to have these fears. I’m not even quite sure what to say to her when I first see her.
But I guess all I can do is show up tomorrow and just take it from there, yeah?
I wish there was a written guide to same-sex parent family planning.
Though I suppose the journey is going to be a lot more interesting without one, yeah?
