Write whatever you want. Also, congratulations to Daniel Tosh on the birth of his puppy and for looking so fantastic in a sports bra. (Posted with a warning that the video from whence it came is very politically incorrect and many will find it obnoxious, so if you’re not into that, don’t click over.)

Zomg. I love Tosh in a sports bra and am so happy for his growing family. I wonder if he used hypnopuppies because he was so damn calm!

I feel a little sorry for Tosh. This is really not funny. SNL did a spoof on an "natural" childbirth class recently, now THAT was funny.

Of course he had to wear a sports bra. He had to cover his robot nipples.

Oh, nothing like 2 am inside jokes in broad daylight.

MomTFH, but it made so much sense in the middle of the night. Our plans, they can never fail. They are so reasonable and practical.

In the spirit of open thread: a follow up. My baby was born by c-section this month as we planned. At almost 39 weeks he was 8lbs, breastfeeding has been great and we are both doing very well. Even more, in reflecting on his birth I've also found healing and made peace with aspects of my previous traumatic vbac -- as well as my own body. (And - my husband is not a widow, as at least one person suggested.)

And Tosh is awesome!

Susan, the koi probably guided the puppy into his hands.

Ooh, I needed an open thread tonight. I'm trying to finish a short assignment about c-sections. It's the first time I've written for class on the topic and it's not as easy as I thought/hoped it might be. I find myself using vaguely inflammatory language and keep having to tamp it out. Jill, I'm allowed to hawk my bloggy wares right? I would dearly love it if y'all had thoughts on this: http://timeforklax.blogspot.com/2011/07/don-imagination-hat.html bonus wacky picture included.

NPR has a story about Dr.s encouraging people to wait til 39 weeks before planning/ scheduling a birth


July 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDebbie

Speaking of NPR, I've really been enjoying the series "Beginnings: Pregnancy, Childbirth and Beyond"...I thought the above story on waiting until 39 weeks was kind of like, "well, duh"--yes, "it's tough to be pregnant!" But if you can't handle a little discomfort for 9+ months, what are you going to do for the next 18+ years?? P.S. I was induced at 39+ weeks because of pregnancy-induced hypertension. I did not like the induction process, even though I was able to go pain-med free, and I hope with baby #2 (whenever that is) I can avoid induction!

Ok, now back to my dissertation bibliography...
