This is my hospital! Derby City General - where I've had my babies and will be having another in November!

Aw - I'm not surprised, although to be compared to the gorgeous women in the other popular programme with desparate in the title can't be that bad?

Can't help on the vid front, mine's broken, much to the annoyance of dd and ds!

Anyone watching?

rodeo1 Mon 23-May-05 21:17:44

Oh god I am! Quite a few faces I recognise! Aren't they lovely? But I'm biased obviously!

Hulababy Mon 23-May-05 21:18:16

Seem so; I am just a sucker for the newborns though.

rodeo1 Mon 23-May-05 21:21:51

Oh bloody hell come on baby!!

Hulababy Mon 23-May-05 21:22:01

Oh my - the little boy isn't breathing properly. Am sat here with my heart inmy throat. Not sure I should be watching such a crucial part of someone's life.

Oh, he's crying and breathing

rodeo1 Mon 23-May-05 21:22:43

Oh thank goodness!

expatinscotland Mon 23-May-05 21:23:41

OMG, that wee boy scared the h* out of me!

Wonder if it's a good idea to watch this whilst pregnant.

rodeo1 Mon 23-May-05 21:23:48

well done ladies!

Hulababy Mon 23-May-05 21:24:48

Oh I used to watch the health channel ones when starting my mat leave, and spent half my time in tears because of the lovely babies being born, and the other half scared witless.

rodeo1 Mon 23-May-05 21:25:08

I know expat! We're all bloomin' daft

Hulababy Mon 23-May-05 21:25:49

I never did the labour bit (induction didn't work) so this whole pushing and shouting/screaming bit is still very curious for me.

expatinscotland Mon 23-May-05 21:25:54

I did this with my first. My husband cut me off in the last trimester, however. . It was keeping my mind off the acid reflux, too.

rodeo1 Mon 23-May-05 21:26:55

wow thatone was easy!

Hulababy Mon 23-May-05 21:27:40

When I finally get pg with #2, can I have one like that please?

rodeo1 Mon 23-May-05 21:28:43

Oh bum it's finished - same time next week girls?

expatinscotland Mon 23-May-05 21:29:05

No doubt, Hula. That's be BRILL!

Hulababy Mon 23-May-05 21:30:12

Think so - but will have to fight DH for the remote next week. There are some great advantages to him going to cinema for the evening

fashill Mon 23-May-05 21:32:09

Only caught the last 10 mins, poo!! I'm due my 1st on Friday so now I've got a better idea of what I'm expecting!! Is it on again next week as I'll be watching if I'm still here

rodeo1 Mon 23-May-05 21:32:27

Yes sent mine to his brothers, he definitely wouldn't have watched it - would scare him witless
