just that really. Text from DH's friend just now re BBQ this afternoon. Am 40+8, rather fed up and just want baby out. Not dead keen to be making polite conversation about it with his mates, or worse my waters breaking there or some such. But DH has called me a grouch & says he'll go with DD anyway whether I go or not.

It was was being sent to the wrong seat at the panto that got me going first time- I was with my Brownie Pack at the time! I hadn't wanted to be left alone and convinced DH not to go to work, but my warm up symptoms died away so I thought I may as well go along that evening.

As Neil Morrisey was playing Wishy Washy, I'm reminded everytime Bob The Builder is on. DS is 2 and the memory is stirred very frequently!

Congratulations on the VBAC!

I tried morris dancing at 40+9. It had sod all effect but at 14mo ds was seen dancing in the bath with two white flannels...

Good luck! Hope its not too long now.

A rocking chair got me going.....

If you have a birthing or exercise ball, sit on it and thrust downwards.

Get on a swing. I was showing no signs of imminent labour, went for a walk, had a swing, had a twinge, had a baby four hours later

Speed bumps did actually start it off for me last time!

Cluffyflump Mon 27-May-13 22:35:26

Yep Splatt
You've missed your slot, so will have to wait till next year now.

Tell me...
Have you considered ; sex, curry, raspberry tea, going for a long walk?

ImperialBlether Mon 27-May-13 22:34:33

You need to drive around looking for speed bumps. That should bring it on.

Best of luck - I'm very jealous!

OP is now +9 & it seems I will be pregnant forever despite trawling around car boot this morning & helping DH erect new fence this afternoon.

Congratulation mummytokatie !!

DeskPlanner Mon 27-May-13 22:13:43

I can do you one! Ds was born just before 5pm yesterday. He's doing really well and is gorgeous. Successful VBAC which I was really pleased about.
Quote of the day:-
Midwife:- Listen to your body - what is it telling you to do?
Me:- go home and have the baby another day!

Apparently the correct answer was push!

Cluffyflump Mon 27-May-13 11:41:26

I checked expecting to read a fab birth story.
Glad you had a nice time smile

McNewPants2013 Sun 26-May-13 20:19:34

Glad you enjoyed yourself and good luck with the birth.

Ywnbu not to want to go, I went 14 days over with DS and it was like the whole pregnancy all over again.

Samu2 Sun 26-May-13 20:10:22

Oh you went! Well glad you had a good time grin

Now come on baby Saldoozer!!

Samu2 Sun 26-May-13 20:08:56


I would not want my dh to go though either, simply because I have gone from no contractions to having a baby an hour later twice and the third was just over an hour with no warning signs.

I was too scared for him to be away longer than 5 minutes lol

saldoozer Sun 26-May-13 19:59:32

I went to a BBQ at 40+10 and went into labour in the middle of the night. Hopefully that will happen to you wink

Splatt34 Sun 26-May-13 19:41:20

well I went. & actually it was fine & TBH it was nice to get out & see people but SHUSH !!!!! don't tell DH he was right!!

GibberTheMonkey Sun 26-May-13 13:18:35

Agree with the others who say send him and dd and enjoy the peace.

LastTangoInDevonshire Sun 26-May-13 12:28:26

All of you stating he shouldn't go in case the OP starts - I presume the poor bloke is allowed to go to work??

LineRunner Sun 26-May-13 12:22:13

Oh and good luck with the births to all! flowers

LineRunner Sun 26-May-13 12:20:14

What is it with BBQs and people not being allowed to decline attending them? Like people are doing you a massive favour burning some sausages and undercooking chicken in a mist of flies and warm lager fumes. They always put the pressure on by saying, 'The weather's lovely! We've bought the food now!'

Just put your feet up.

TigerSwallowTail Sun 26-May-13 12:12:48

Yanbu, that sounds awful, I'm 40+4 and won't be visiting anyone until baby is here, instead I'm spending my days sprawled on the couch watching Netflix.

Cluffyflump Sun 26-May-13 12:10:40

Ohhh good luck Mummytokatie as well thanks
