Is it cold out there?

I wish I was a better blogger... or that I had something profound to say. I don't want one of those sad stories that most "big" bloggers have, I just want to have something to say.
I have a seminar to go to at lunchtime today, it's about 45 minutes from here and the guys I'm going with are terrified that I'm going to go into labor. Neither have kids and I think it's hilarious that they are so worried about it. Speaking of labor, every night I try to mentally will my water to break, but it's not working. Maybe this weekend we'll get some Eggplant Parmesan. I've never had it, is it any good? (That's about as "wild" as I'll get when it comes to self-induction of labor).
Everyday my boss asks me how I'm feeling, and he actually cares about the answer... I love my job.
I went to a La Leche League meeting the other day, I'm going to give breastfeeding another shot. I'm pretty scared about it because it almost destroyed me emotionally last time, but this time I feel like I have good support. Do any of you want to be a "coach" for me? Pretty please? I'll send candy.
We bought a car! We have been looking for a little commuter that gets good gas mileage for Sean to drive to work, we looked for over a year. We got an '07 Prius. It's actually an adorable car, and was very well cared for. Sean said he got made fun of all day long (he works in commercial construction), but that 45+ mpg made it easy to handle. However, I'm not sure how I feel about it being parked in the garage when I got home last night. That is my spot.
Also, the boat is fixed... Sean and his dad took it out for a ride this weekend. I did check, and no I don't think Hell froze over nor have I seen any pigs flying.
I got Sean some designer jeans for Christmas... he got them altered and finally wore them. After about 10 seconds he said "Well, now I understand why you spend so much on your jeans." It is so good to be understood.

eggplant parm is super yummy and super easy. good for you for being willing to try breastfeeding again. you can always text, email, fb me for any ?'s not that I'm a pro but I have been fortunate enough to have had it work well for both my babies. 2 weeks from now I too will be all about getting this baby to make their debut. can't wait to find out what we are each having :)

Dear god! Your baby is the size of a watermelon!! (Your banner says so.) :) Tell those guys that you are going to the seminar with that you will NOT just explode and that they are relatively safe from having to do an emergency delivery. (Silly single guys!)
Is eggplant parm supposed to bring on labor? That's a new one for me.

Congrats on the new car. I want a car with that kind of mileage!

I feel the same as you! I wish I was a better blogger. I feel like I use to be a great blogger but have seriously let it slide so bad the last several months.

I hated breastfeeding the first time around and it caused me a great deal of stress, but with my second it was like my full time job. It just came so easy and was NATURAL. No stress involved until I went to wean the little dude. I think the biggest thing is to relax and know that whatever you decide you are doing what is best for your baby (and you) whether that means boob or bottle. lol ;)

NEVER had eggplant parmesan! EVER! But with my 2nd child....I did try drinking the castor oil! An entire FREAKIN bottle!!! UH NO!!! Did nothing except made my plant my big butt on the toilet for the rest of the day!!! So - that's a no go!
that's hilarious about your co-workers scared you are going to go into labor! I would TOTALLY fake a labor on the way back! HA!!! I would LOVE to see their faces then! (But I'm mean like that!)
Good luck on breast feeding! I understand - I tried with ALL 3 of my kids! I got your back....and as long as you are sending candy - I'M YOUR COACH!!! HA!

oh yay for the jeans - that means you get to buy them without grief now.

i can't be your boob coach. I have no experience. sorry.

I tried all those inducing things: spicy food, walking, an entire container of fresh pineapple. Nothing seemed to work though!

Lyndsay said...

Oh thanks. Now I want eggplant parm. It's so good....

What kind of jeans do you buy? I got mine at the grocery store (and I wish I was kidding.)

SEX. Yes, I said sex. It is supposed to bring on labor. Might not be really enjoyable, but it might bring on baby #2 for you.

I will be your cheerleader for breastfeeding. I was only to breastfeed for 3 months with Kenly before my RA diagnosis, but I really enjoyed it.

Your last belly shots were awesome.

Hang in there.

Good luck! I have never eaten any, so I cannot help you there! I am BF my second now and I love it! If you ever have questions, you are more than welcome to send them my way and I will help if I can! I am helping a friend nearby right now too. Guess I am a bit of an expert by now, or something like that! LOL Best wishes with the labor! Glad to know that your husband admits when you are right! My husband needs work in that area!

Oh and congrats on the new car!

I had the hardest time breastfeeding and I was low milk supply and had to supplement, but I was determined to nurse for a year. After I let my guard down and stopped stressing about the fact I had to give my baby formula, I started producing the perfect amount for Aubrey and she didn't take a bottle after 3 months. I was so glad I stuck with it although the first 3 months sucked the life out of me.

You can do it!

I'm hoping breastfeeding goes great for you this time. It can be so hard at the beginning (and I didn't even have it that hard!). Glad you're getting support!

THE BOAT! IT'S FIXED! I am SO thrilled for you guys to hear that. It warms my cold dead heart a lot. Aw. <3
