You are thinking of someone thinking of you having fun

David and I made a little video on Monday of my pregnant dropbacks.  My second one is a bit jumpy but I’m too lazy and pregnant to get it perfect – so you are stuck with the honest (OK sloppy!) version of how I dropback everyday. The real reason to watch this is for the belly.

My belly dropped this week. I can see it started happening on Monday because my shirt is riding up in that video. I’ve been trying to coax baby out by walking around the garden and bragging about all the flowers, shaking rattles by my belly, and raving about how soft and nice the baby’s bed is. So far, I’ve just had some new cramping feelings – but the baby hasn’t come out while I am sleeping or anything.

Mary, the midwife, told the baby on Thursday that it was time to come out. She told me that I should start eating lots of Indian food, have lots of sex, and lie horizontally to reduce the swelling in my feet when I watch television. David says I have the best life ever. But then, it seems to work out for him pretty well too.

Actually, David is the best husband ever. When I came home today there was a package waiting for me from David that he bought all stealth-like online.

So great! I’m not opening it until the baby comes and I have to lie in bed for 2 weeks. David says we can glean good child rearing tips from the show. I hope there are lots of extras on Daddy, the world’s best pitbull.

Incredible Stan!

Good luck in the coming and exciting next few days.

I wanted to pass on word of your and David’s fame. I am in Chicago and went to Yoga Now for mysore this morning. All they knew from the waiver was that I was from Toronto but the instructor said at the end of the class – “so do you practice with David Robson”? She is an admirer of your blog and David’s videos.

I hope David won’t be offended that she linked my struggles with his teaching!

Cheers

Stan,

I hope that you don’t take this the wrong way, but… you are even cuter than a whole slumber of sloths.

First of all, you are an inspiration!!!

Stan ,in my wildest dreams, my dropbacks will look like that.

When Emily was born, I spent hours upon hours (at ALL hours) watching the Food Network while I nursed, and you will have Cesar, one of my favourites, to watch as you nurse your baby. I find his physical cues to the dogs, like the knee thrust, don’t really work well with children, but keeping a calm energy is very handy and something you should have no trouble with at all. You’ll probably be known as the Baby Whisperer.

Come baby! – June 1 would be a perfect day for a birthday celebration.

Tim! That is such a great message to pass on. I hope you are having fun in Chicago. I’m sure anyone would be proud to have your “struggles” associated with his teaching! Did you convince your wife to give yoga a try this weekend?

Miss Owl – Slumber of sloths….. I am always getting good learnings from you. The teaches of Owl. You should consider renaming your blog.

Laruga – Meh! When/if you ever decide to get knocked up you will totally do the same!

Diana – I know! You tell that baby! Crazy little thing!

Jilly – I am a fan of the sharp “Tsht!” that Cesar does. Dolly was deaf – but I swear to god she could hear the “Tsht!” Do you think that will work with the baby? I’ll try not to use the knee thrust.

June 1st might be a good day to crack open the Dog Whisperer! :)

ok, compared to you I was a sloth during both pregnancies! I hope you are also napping b/w back bends! Who knows, maybe you are in labor!!!! You are going to do great! I nurse in bed and watch movies on the iPod, which I highly reccommend. It’s
been a saviour this past week. I’ll be thinking of you.

No, this ridiculous baby hasn’t decided to pop out while I do backbends! I keep hoping though. Lying in bed with movies sounds pretty heavenly – I hope you are getting lots of rest after your crazy busy week!

I also love The Dog Whisperer!

stan if i could do half the things you do in my non-preggers body i’d be happy!!

I hear eggplant Parmesan helps bring the baby *furiously googles vegan adaptations so she can bring you some tomorrow*. that daiya i got might just come in handy for this!!

Thanks Andrea! I hope the baby comes soon, and I can use that birthing egg!

Krista – thanks so much. Dog Whisperer is truly the best show on television. I love Cesar with his clipboard.

Lauren! Holy Crap that was the best eggplant parmesan ever. I really hope the vegan version elicits the same results. I just ate my last bite!

Thanks V for the best wishes! At this point I can’t wait for the birth.

Becky – I will definitely post pictures when I pop this sucker out. How have you been doing with your little guy?
