Thanks for the thread, Nutty xx
So, how many babies will we manage today, do you reckon?
Juw???? crikey ((hugs))
Springy - with the long labours at the mo i think maybe 1 if we're lucky??? i think that will be MM?
Well, maybe I'll fill it with bunnies, as Schulte is not around to do it, and leave the war to the others. Remember - limited Boff presence at the mo' so everyone is in with a chance!
I hope it is MM's turn - apart from anything else she'll be wasting away if she keeps being unable to eat!
Just read that article that bronze linked to & am pulling this face. Talk about usual Daily Mail crap. Not only would recovered pelvic floor muscles be beneficial to the woman's sex life as well, it'll stop her peeing when she sneezes & so on. Just because one Daily Mail 'journalist' whines on about the misogyny of France (because we all hate France & the French, remember - this is the Daily Mail; French men are all arrogant, garlicky womanisers & the women are somehow both completely chic & gorgeous, but extremely hairy), it's hardly a medical journal.
Grr, I hate that paper. Personally, I'm all for fanjo physio.
I want fanjo physio just for me, let alone DH!!
That's exactly what I mean, Nutty. Surely it's better not to be weeing yourself &, if we're talking about sex, to be able to actually feel his penis?! I don't see how it's putting pressure on women to perform for their husbands at all.
Lots of women in Britain resume sexual relations long before the 6 weeks, but get really worried about it because there's inadequate advice & scaremongering about air bubbles & so on. Just because a doctor in France says that you may find yourself comfortable enough to have sex within 4 weeks doesn't mean that you have to.

Morning Orbit's mummy
I'm still in my jammies too - it's no big deal
well maybe the emphasis on it being for your husband rather than for you and your well being and sexual relations is a bit much though. i would much rather be told it was for my benefit rather than DH's iyswim i would be a tad more receptive if i was in the dark about it all.
just the way its put across is a bit garbled but then it is a tabloid news story, so its more likely to be an untrue version of how things are truly done over there.
Morning WFH come back pj's are welcome here
Well I don't know, because I've never given birth in France (), but I just don't trust the Daily Mail spin on it at all. She's interpreting things in the most controversial way possible. There'd be no story in it if she said 'yeah, they have fanjo physio & it's really useful' - she's deliberately trying to stir up the generally French-hating Daily Mail readership. It doesn't mean that it's like that at all...
Sorry I haven't been on for the last week - mixture of internet being on the blink and feeling all grumpy and sorry for myself (i.e. totally hermitish).
Well done and many congrats to everyone who has already popped!! Have been trying to keep up with everyone and their lovely bambinos.
I'm now 40+5 and VERY BLOOMIN' FED UP!!!! Aarrggghhhhh!!!!!!!!! Will this baby EVER come out???? Have had absolutely no symptoms of impending labour at all either...
Also, I got a letter from the local hospital saying they want me to come in for a checkup and scan next wednesday (I'll be 41+5) if nothing's happened by then. They'll then decide an induction date if it's necessary. At least here they don't seem to be so rabid about inductions as in the UK - it's a very 'we'll wait and see' attitude, thank goodness. Though I might not be saying that by next wednesday and be begging them for an induction!!
On a much happier note my lovely mum sent me some cadbury's cream eggs in the post because you can't buy them here!! Have already scoffed them all...
Sorry for the me me me whinge - feeling quite down in the dumps at the mo'.
oh Kalikaroo I feel for you, I was late with dd1 and remember exactly how it felt just hanging on each day. Keeping fingers crossed something gets started for you soon.
Are you in Sweden I seem to remember? Can you get the Fazer eggs in Sweden? I lived in Finland for a few years and loved the little Fazer eggs that were solid chocolate.
Kali - it will come honest ((hugs)) tis bloody frustrating though xx
Fear not, Kalikaroo, it will come out. I promise! It is frustrating though, isn't it? Sending you lots of good labour vibes.....
JuwEggs, re the other thread, we were giggling about Pavlov's cats the other day because I was trying to wind Orbit and I burped really loudly instead......'Day 3, Orbit rang bell, WhatFreshEgg burped'
So Eddie Izzard....would you? I would. He's hot..... especially in heels!
Cleaner is coming in a minute (I know, I'm spoiled, we can't afford her for much longer but I do so looooooooooooooooooooooove her) so should probably try and look respectable.
Have just put the two bunches of flowers that came yesterday in vases. Apart from that have mainly been choosing clothes on the internet for when I'm thin again <<wishful thinking>>
DP is out buying my birthday present
As for the French physio, my sister lives over there and has two kids but had two c-sections, I wonder if she still got fanjo physio? Shall have to enquire.
WFH - i so would!!! anyday of the week!!!! i want him badly!!!
Phew - I think this thread makes a bit more sense than the other one.
does anyone have a hairnet???
Blimey - just realised how big WFHs baby was. I think fully entitled to wear pyjamas for months after producing such a whopper.
My son is shouting at bump to come out and I am only 37 weeks, so not remotely over due. Its hilerous as he tells me to "open your mouth" so he can speak to bump.
The only problem is that I am now a bit wet below and as I think I have either pissed my self laughing or my waters are leaking.
