Alive...and sort of kicking

A while back I made a comment on a post that I would be taking a hiatus from this blog and from writing for a while. I had planned to be gone maybe two weeks. It it now looking like I will be posting sporadically for the next few months.

The reason? Well, it's two fold.

I am always worried about sharing too much personal information on the Internet. This is why I have emails not connected to anything in my real life, I write under a pseudo name, and I am always second guessing anything I put on posts in various forums and groups I belong to.

I worry about copyright infringement and people's privacy as I have had my own trampled once upon a time.

I am a worrier, although most in my life would be surprised to hear that. There is often a small voice in my head telling me "Not a good idea..." normally for no reason at all.

And it has led to me missing out or (in the case of TTWD) almost missing out on a large part that makes me....well, me.

So that was reason one.

Reason two...well...since I decided I wanted to share...

I'm expecting! Unfortunately I am at that time when you are not really suppose to tell people you are pregnant but you are sick constantly and there are only so many times you can say "I have the flu" before people stop believing you. Being asleep by 6 pm doesn't help either...

Which brings me to the spanking portion of this post...To be spanked or not to be spanked while pregnant.

At first I remembered all the stories/novels I have read and advice given on various groups I belong to and I noticed that almost all seem to point that spanking while pregnant won't hurt the baby as long as care is taken.

But....

A book I thoroughly enjoyed entitled The Compleat Spanker by Lady Green made a very good point. Often even a well placed smack can leave a mark (at least it could if you bruise as easily as I do!). If you don't mind explaining to your doctor why there are bruises on that part of your anatomy then all the power to you. But if you are like me, the prospect of an unplanned trip to the hospital with a doctor or nurse asking if you need help getting out of an abusive relationship isn't a conversation I would want to have.

There is also a possibility that CAS or other organizations which look after the safety of children could be involved, if not the police, depending on the policy of the medical center you have gone too.

Now although this is an activity between consenting adult, I am willing to guess the majority of the population does not participate in our kink and even some who consider it abuse.

This is why we are not going to be playing for the remainder of my pregnancy beyond the occasional love tap or two. To me it's not worth the potential issues that could arise from an unplanned medical trip.

Now, my vanilla partner was not too please that this new activity which he was just getting into the swing of is now off limits, which raises questions about convertibility but that's another post!

Instead I will need to content myself with that "look" that makes my stomach flutter, which I seem to be getting in spades these days...and not in the normal "I want to play" way either.

And just in case you don't know what that looks like... here's the animal version! (It was cute, I had to share it!)

So...I have several questions for you!

1. What are your thoughts about spanking during pregnancy?
2. Any cures for morning sickness?

Take care and stay safe!
