More Home Remedies

We had really convinced ourselves that, because the Noodle came a week early, WUO would follow suit as is - according to popular mythology - customary.

Complete bollocks apparently.

Which means the mad scramble to finish assignments and the 'extension' has been complete and we now find ourselves in limbo.

Knickers is throwing her hat further into the murky ring of folklore and witchcraft. We've tried all the well known ones and we're now just making stuff up.

My suggestions have included:
  • Making trifle (I love trifle)
  • Watching UFC dvd's
  • Freezing cold showers
  • Confusing WUO with handstands
  • Hiccup curing scares
  • Drinking bleach (only a capful)

At about that point I was told that my making another suggestion or saying 'not long now' again will result in serious harm to my person.

Today is the actually due date. The doctor from the Women and Children's said they won't induce for at least a week.

I fear for us all.

Try booking tickets to the most expensive concert you can find playing within the next week.

Good idea Franzy, or just making sure that Knickers is out and about at the shops (the posher the better) from now on - her waters are sure to break.

...And it's also fun seeing how fast her 'getaway' can be should she try a bank hold up - my belly could barely fit under the steering wheel.... Oh, hang on, that's still the case today...

I have always found the following exercise helpful:

1. Sit somewhere comfortable like on the edge of a bed. Oh this is the pregnant woman who does this

2.Look at your belly and breathe in deeply

3. Now scream at your belly, 'Get out! Get out now you great big bag of slack potatoes! GET OUT! GET OUT NOW you lazy layabout!! GET OUT!!'

This is quite effective
