Monday Open Thread

Today’s open thread is hosted by Sam Cooke because I just found a ton of mp3s that I downloaded in or around 1999 and I’m really excited. RIP, Sam.

Hey, I’m behind on reading so if you wouldn’t mind linking to something good that you’ve just written or something that you’ve recently read that you think I should read, please go for it.

Happy holidays and such.

Happy Monday!

I posted this on your FB wall, but if you're behind on your reading, maybe you missed it. I wrote the story of my recent HBAC:


Actually, she was born at my midwife's house. It wasn't exactly as we had planned, but it is quite the story!

I hope you like it!

Congrats on your HBAC, Tiana!

I'm excitedly awaiting a birth-- my first doula client is due tomorrow. Tomorrow is also cosmically special or some shit because it is the solstice, lunar eclipse and full moon all at once. Maybe the baby will come out all grown up with long hair and rockin' on the sax.

Also, the office holiday treats are killing me. Jan 1 can't come soon enough.

Hope to catch the radio show later!

It's funny that you mention the lunar eclipse, Rachel. All three of my HBAC babies have come on full moons. The most recent was a "blue moon".

Congrats Tiana on your HBAC!
I'll post a link, I wrote something about circumcision recently and, while not fully germane to this blog it's at least related and people seemed to like it. http://tigaseren.blogspot.com/2010/11/circumcision-and-common-sense.html. btw Jill I haven't forgotten about your offer to post my most recent pregnancy and birth fiasco and I will get it to you eventually.

A great post about dads was shared on FB and is very worth the read:

I'm studying for my epidemiology final - the chapter on screening - and wishing I were reading this instead:


I can't even remember who tweeted about it this past week ... s'pose it might have been you, in which case, woops. :)

Loooove Sam Cooke. He died way too early. Thanks for the blast from the past!

I was going to make an "OBs should try a little tenderness" joke, but apparently that's Otis Redding. R&B fail. I guess you could insert "A Change is Gonna Come," but the song is just to poignant for puns.
