Random Tuesday Thoughts


This fun blog hop brought to you by "The Un Mom", head over and check out her super cool graphics.

Okay seriously this is the last RTT while pregnant with this little guy. My induce date is firmly set for Thursday, July 29th so he's coming out whether he likes it or not!

------------------------
This morning, while walking 3 miles I noticed two guys walking their dogs in boxers - which is underwear and seriously couldn't they find time to put on proper shorts? Both had baseball caps, clearly some thought was put into outdoor wear.

------------------------
Featuring daughter's best bedhead photo, I'm saving this for when she's 20, and comes home from art school with the same hair.


------------------------

I've got mixed feelings on being induced, on one hand I'm desperate to be done, on the other I really enjoyed having a natural birth the first time but it seems to be taking forever. You know how doctors do their measurements and decide you are x number of weeks, well I've always pegged myself as one week ahead based on when I know we conceived so that puts me in the final days of 39 weeks.

My Yoga instructor suggested I call a natural labor coach/midwife and her recommendation was "walk till your feet fall off". I walked 3 miles yesterday morning, 45 minutes on the beach at night, 3 more miles this morning. My feet feel fine - it's other parts that feel like they are about to fall off.
------------------------

Hope you all have a grand Tuesday! My plans are more yoga, more walking, go into labor, have baby.

Ooooh! Only two more days! WooHoo! :)

Guys walking their dogs in boxers but with a hat on? Scary!

Love your daughter's bed-head photo - definitely save it for when she gets older. I have a few of those of Princess Nagger to show off when she brings home her first boyfriend named 'Spike' when she gets old enough to date. ;)

Good luck day-after-tomorrow! Can't wait to see pictures of your new arrival! :)

Love the pic...

Once you announce he's here, can I publicly congratulate you on my blog?

VandyJ said...

That is some bed head! Definitely blackmail material. Good luck with the labor thing, hope things can take a natural turn for you.

Leigh said...

Congrats on the new little one about to arrive! Induced labor is much like natural, if just gives you a push to get you started.

Happy Tuesday!

Happy Birthweek! :)

Your random thoughts are going to get pretty random after two. Just wait. Haha! Mommy brain and not a moments peace. It will come. Just not at first. However, I don't have a moments doubt that you will leave to juggle. You do a great job already with work, home and Charlotte.

Be glad that you didn't get any unwanted peeks this morning. Don't some people think before they leave their door?

Good hair, Charlotte! Love it!

I always had mixed feelings on being induced, however, the outcome is the same. A baby. Can't wait to hear what you are naming the little man. :)

Walk some more! Make that little boy get uncomfortable. Maybe some tumbling to get him out of position. JK!!! Don't want to hurt him. :) Hope all goes well.

Can't wait to hear from you! I think I had to hear about Charlotte's arrival from this blog. Hopefully I won't be on the line like the last time when you try to call. Blessings, Rachel! And forget the book! :)

Thanks Stacy, photos will be posted! I'm not shy about sharing my family.

Crystal - sure! Why not?

Thanks Vandy.

Leigh - thanks, I was getting worried, I like the sound of it being just a "push".

Thanks Seansmama!

Gina - and I'll try to have phone charged so my one call out isn't to someone already ON the phone!!!
