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.
