to be annoyed with my friend lecturing me about pregnancy?

Name changed because some of my friends from my ante-natal group are on here.

I'm so pissed off with my friend - I'm 40+6 and really fed up with being pregnant, it's so hot, I have SPD and can barely walk, plus my legs are really swollen.

Was speaking to my (childless) friend about self-inducing. I explained to her that I'd read that hot curries can work possibly as they irritate the bowel. Anyway, I tried that and it didn't work so instead I started saving the out of date food in my fridge instead of throwing it away. My friend went mental when I told her I had been eating it, told me I was putting my baby at risk. FFS it was just slightly out of date bacon and yoghurt, I thought a tummy ache might help things along.

I'm so fed up of her butting in when she knows nothing. AIBU to be annoyed with her?

Never heard of eating out of date food to speed labour along! I would imagine she is just worried about you, whether she is childless or not - I am sure if she had a child she would probably say the same things.

Yanbu, just hormonal!

Rather than bringing on labour, you are more at risk of food poisoning. Any fool would know this.

You are either incredibly foolish or a troll.

I suspect the latter

Do you really want to go into labour with food poisoning?

cornsilk Sun 03-Aug-08 14:37:15

If this is for real, you are extremely silly.

belgo Sun 03-Aug-08 14:37:40

if it's a troll, it's not very funny.

food a couple of days out of date shouldn't be that harmful to be honest. I've never heard of a tummy ache bringing on labour though - who told you this might be a way to do it?

At least the celery-up-the-butt thread was amusing. This is boring

belgo Sun 03-Aug-08 14:39:15

what celery-up-the-butt thread??? I missed that one!

sex is far better at starting labour than food poisoning

Overdueandfedup Sun 03-Aug-08 14:41:09

Well I'm getting desperate now, can't do sex.

cornsilk Sun 03-Aug-08 14:42:06

Just wait till the baby is ready to come FGS.

mrsleroyjethrogibbs Sun 03-Aug-08 14:42:07

semen contains something or other which relaxes your cervix so it does work

belgo Sun 03-Aug-08 14:42:44

DIY sex also helps due to oxytocin release I think?

Overdueandfedup Sun 03-Aug-08 14:42:46

I have no DP, therefore I have no semen.

muggglewump Sun 03-Aug-08 14:45:28

hmm I'd lecture you too.
Do you really want food poisoning in labour?
I suspect you are trolling though

wheresthehamster Sun 03-Aug-08 14:47:15

Here belgo. It's been sorted now grin

Overdueandfedup Sun 03-Aug-08 14:47:58

Is it really likely to give me food poisioning though? Bacon a few days out of date? I thought it would just give me a fizzy tummy and that would start things moving.

wheresthehamster Sun 03-Aug-08 14:48:45

oops - getting confused

belgo Sun 03-Aug-08 14:49:03

grin thanks where'sthehamster

cornsilk Sun 03-Aug-08 14:49:39

Well I'm not particularly worried about your fizzy tummy. However I would be very worried about what was crossing the placenta to your unborn child - who you don't seem to have mentioned.
