Random Thoughts: mostly not baby related

Typo warning...this was sent from my phone.

One:
Last Friday on Twitter I gave it an 87% chance that we were having the baby that day.

There are a few scientific reasons for that; I missed the bus and had to take our car so Staci was kind of stranded, I had a migraine trying to shut me down and a bunch of people thought it was the day. 

We're still waiting.

Two: 
The reason I had a headache was because I have been clenching my jaw at night (I may be stressed about having the kid.) The clenching leads to jaw pain which leads to a headache that has triggered migraines.

I used to do it a lot to the extent that I'd have small chips of teethe randomly break off. All the chips were repaired and I haven't been clenching in about three years.

But the other day one of those tiny chip replacement/fillers broke off. It's hardly noticeable...not like The Hangover.

Three:
Even though it's a tiny chip I want to get it replaced. To do this the dentist matches the filler to your tooth color.

I drink a lot of coffee and black tea which has stained my teeth so I wanted to whiten.

Long story short...don't fall asleep for 4 hours with the whitening trays on (if you're using the 30 minute kinds)...your teeth will hurt like a bitch but will be visibly whiter.

Four:
As I said in number one there is no baby yet...we still have 9 days left before the due date. We're both hoping the baby comes soon...Staci because it's just not fun right now...me because I think it's just a bit too cliche for it to be late. 

No offense to all the first time kids that were late...

Five:
There was some sort of football game here in the Twin Cities this weekend. I say it like this because until Thursday night I had no idea Minnesota had a good team this year. 

Now they're one (I think one) game away from the Super Bowl and that reminds me of a super early conversation with Staci's doctor. He said that quite a few people will schedule induction or c-sections a few days before the Super Bowl so they don't miss it. 

I asked if our baby was late and born on Super Bowl Sunday if we could get a discounted price since it's an unpopular day. Apparently that's not how pricing is decided in the medical community. 

Six:
And last as I said earlier, and most moms know, this is probably the least fun time during pregnancy. So a big shout out to Staci for being so awesome.

  1. I agree that this was definitely my least favorite part of pregnancy (and I had horrific morning sickness- so that's saying a lot).

    What made me crazy during the wait was when my family would call and say things like "You STILL haven't had that baby??"

    That's the verbal equivalent of pulling out one single strand of hair from someone's head.

  2. um, so since this isn't baby related, which whitening strips did you use? because all my coffee is catching up to me and it's not ok.

  3. I used Target's brand (Up&Up) I used the best ones, I think. They come in a white plastic case, are for 7 days and are called whitening wraps or something like that. I think they are like the high end Crest ones. They worked pretty well...still have 2 days to go.

Dear Scott the Paleontologist – the response... Wait sorry... the awesome response

In my last post I asked some incredibly pressing questions to Dr. Scott Sampson aka Scott the Paleontologist. Questions that any parent of a Dinosaur Train fan wants to know... I got a reply and I have to say Dr. Scott is hilarious and pretty awesome... But I'm a fan of science humor... So here are his responses in line with mine. They're in blue because that's the color of most of  Shiny Pteranodon. Dear Scott the Paleontologist, My son Miloh and I are fans of Dinosaur Train and as an avid fan I have some questions regarding it that I hope you can answer: The train is a steam engine. Does it run off coal? If it does use coal is there a possibility that greenhouse gases from that could have lead to the extinction of dinosaurs? How come this isn't a theory? Very interesting question. Yes, to the best of my knowledge, the Dinosaur Train runs on fossil fuels, but we actually do have an episode upcoming where we investigate alternative fuel trains. Given that

Response to a comment about breastfeeding

Since I'm a dude and unable to produce milk from I never thought I woul have to defend the reason we formula feed instead of breast feed. But I received a comment on a recent post so I thought I would talk about it here. I'll get to the why we don't later but I'll start off on a tangent. First off I don't want to alienate the person who asked the comment because they say they are a reader and I'm cool with anyone stopping by. But I can't call the person out anyway because the comment was anonymous...and here is where I go into a little bit of a rant, and if you follow me on twitter you know I'm a fan of the rant. I'm assuming the comment was anonymous on purpose. Perhaps the person is a friend or someone I follow on twitter. Maybe they didn't want to ruin that relationship by coming out and saying it. I'm  a big boy and can handle criticism. Anonymous comments are never things like "Where did you get that cool toy?" they ar

New Giveaway: ABC's for Expectant Dads - 10 awesome copies

Winners have been picked for the giveaway. Todd was so nice as to give all who entered by the deadline a copy of his book. Thanks all who entered...I sent an email to you for your info. Please email me (info on the header) if you don't get that email. Rommel I could not find your email...please let me know your contact info. A bit ago I found Todd Lieman in Twitterland and he sent me a copy of his book ABC's for Expectant Dads: The Ultimate A- for Dads-in-Training. I'd looked at a bunch of expectant dad books and I thought most were terrible. I did pick up The Expectant Father and I liked it but I haven't looked at it in months. I think it's tough for dad's because we're just reading about what's going on with the mothers and it's easier to hear it from them. Staci is reading so much that she keeps me up to date on things I should know and I'm sure most expectant moms are the same. I'm also luckily in that doing this blog has connected
