Oven Mitts???

I'm still here. After a less-than-inspiring trip to the OB yesterday, it's looking more than ever like I'm going to be induced on Tuesday.

I've always been weirded out that my OB's office uses oven mitts as stirrup covers, but yesterday those oven mitts officially crossed the line from weird to downright annoying. (Blame that on my advanced stage of pregnancy...I find almost everything annoying these days). Maybe it's a subliminal "bun in the oven" metaphor, being that 3/4 of the women who place their feet in the mitt-clad stirrups have a bun in their oven, but I don't think I'll ever be able to look at an oven mitt the same way again.

P.S. Image from Country Living...because I'm sure you were looking for a photo of a snazzy rooster oven mitt. :)

Being patient is way over rated. I say start doing all those crazy things women do to go into labor. My friend swears that a tea spoon of caster oil will do the trick... Em {I am checking in daily for the baby news.}

Hee hee! The oven mitts over the stirrups is wacky. I know it sucks to be overdue, but I'm kind of hoping you end up induced so it's a nice, controlled labor! I've been worried about you since your #1 guy came so quickly. Best wishes with however it goes--can't wait to hear she has arrived!
