Ten Thought Tuesday: The Countdown


  1. Wow, I can’t believe I’m only (about) 8 weeks away from meeting Peanut!
  2. I’ve been having some pains in my lower back, hips and lower pelvic area.  I had them during my first pregnancy, but only near the end.  This time ’round, I’ve been dealing with them from about 20 weeks onwards.
  3. I finally ended up seeing an osteopath and getting a massage.  Both have really helped and I’ll probably be going back before the end of my pregnancy.
  4. Tonight will be Charles’ second night in his big boy room.  Last night I heard him get up and out of his room a few times, but he went back to bed on his own each time.  He was up at 5:30 this morning though (oh boy – mommy and daddy were quite tired today!).
  5. Putting him down for bedtime was a bit easier tonight than it was last night.  Let’s hope the wind of progress keeps blowing through!
  6. Last week, I went strawberry picking with my mom and Charles.  My mom and I got down and picked the berries and my son did the picking (and sampling) directly from the baskets we had.  Needless to say, he had a blast!
  7. My partner and I have recently come back from a three-day escape to Quebec city.  We stayed in a lovely B&B and had a wonderful time exploring Old Quebec on foot.  It was a lovely weekend.
  8. Next week, my sister, Charles and I are going to go join my mom for some fancy camping (in an RV).  We’ll be staying one night and will be trying out some canoeing (among other activities).  I can’t wait to see how the little guy will react to it all!
  9. I’m still completely transfixed by The Mentalist series and have been plowing through episode after episode whenever I can.
  10. I’ve been really enjoying being off work for the summer (and subsequent maternity leave) and have been taking the time to relax and get the inside of the house somewhat back on track.

Do you have any random thoughts you’d like to share?

  1. I’m glad you had such a nice time at the B&B! 😀
    Do you have names picked and ready for peanut? And HOW do you explain to Charles that you don’t know if it’s a boy or girl? I mean…Idk, maybe that’s a dumb question…. LOL

    1. We’ve settled on Alexandre and Pénélope :D. For Charles, I don’t think he even understands the concept of boy/girl to that extent yet. I mean, he notices that his parts and daddy’s parts are the same and that mommy’s are different, but he doesn’t have any words for boy or girl yet. And actually, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t understand what it means exactly that mommy has a baby in her belly. Was it a question that Maggie asked when you were pregnant with Joshua?

  2. Pain. What pain? Walk like you have no pain…lol! Sorry for the sarcasm. I’m with you except with this 4th one, it started at 12 weeks! And I loved Quebec City! I went there with a friend 13 years ago. Loved it! Stayed at a B and B there by that “castle.” And, ugh, 530 am is so early for the kids to be up! Luckily, mine usually do at the earliest 7 am. Much better for me! Hope you enjoy camping! And lastly, we have some strawberries, but the rabbits keep eating the red ones. Bummer! Thinking of you and good wishes your way with pregnancy.

    1. Haha, yeah, the lower pelvic pain started at like 37 weeks with Charles. It started at around 15 with this one. Oh well…

      After almost a week in the new room, the latest the little guy has gotten up was 6:30. I see (some) hope at the end of the tunnel!

      Hope you are well! If I’m not mistaken, you’re not far away from meeting baby #4, right?

      Take care!
