I'm not normally one for cheesey poems and sayings but I thought this was quite nice. Was given to us from HypnoBirthing practitioner. Will definitely be posting it on my FB wall when things get a bit nearer (and more annoying!)

We're just fine...
My baby's not a library book,
So he's not overdue.
My baby doesn't over cook,
cos he's not a veggie stew.
My baby's not an elephant,
and I'm not fit to burst.
The date and time aren't relevant,
We're blessed with days, not cursed.
My baby can't read dates as yet,
Because he's very new.
So there's no cause to fuss and fret,
If he doesn't come on que.
So stop your worry,
stop your asking,
there's no hurry
we're relaxing
in this golden pregnant time,
this pause, which is just his and mine.
Leave us be, we're just fine.

this is great! like everythinng else about child development why do someparents need to rush their kids mile stones? one of my children wasn't fully potty trained until they were nearly 3, but we took our time didnt panic and we got there, after all everyone does things at their own pace why not children?

I hear you on this one. Both my previous kids I have answered the phone to everyone from 37 weeks on with "no, I'm not in labour yet"
