and another thing

1. Has anyone EVER got posting by email to work on blogger?
2. Our solicitor is off sick and her oppo is not prepared to complete tomorrow.
3. Thing #4576 not to say to your wife when she is crying because she is experiencing painful phantom contractions and cannot get out of the bath: "Try to say centred and cheerful"
4. I think I'm probably actually starting labour now - I've had a 'show'. But the midwife says it could be a couple of days.

I cannot believe that after all the pushing everyone has done to get it sorted, we are NOT going to move this weekend, just because the STUPID oppo doesn't feel confident enough to go ahead. I feel absolutely devastated and that the world is collapsing around me. Now, I'm going back to bed to rest while I can.

    (Solicitor - can a major firework be inserted up oppo's rear end by hubby to make clear that completion is essential tomorrow? As in 'No I won't bloody call back if he/she is in a meeting. I want to speak to him/her now etc.' When we were completing somewhere once we turned up unannounced in the solicitors' reception and refused to go until she did it. Not that you want to be trailing about - but toy throwing can work.)

    However - all that's a job for the other half. You rest honey. Not your job today.

  3. Oh, but Ally, this is wonderful. Everybody needs birth stories! Think of all the things you'll be able to tell the Bump: "...And then we didn't know if we'd even have a place to live (can you imagine, a homeless ready-to-burst pregnant woman?) ... And as I was in labor at the Solicitor's office, the Internist your Da had grabbed off the street said, 'Push!' I grabbed his collar, twisted it tight around his neck and said, 'YOU BLOODY PUSH YOU SON OF A' --- What, B? You think we should save this story for when Bump is older? Why, don't you think five and half is a fine time to tell this story?"

    Best of luck to all three of you!

  5. 1) Nope
    2) I think a day sitting in the solicitors office is absolutely called for, but as josephine said, send the other half just make sure he keeps his mobile on!
    3)Ohh, I could add some good ones to that list. I pulled some real crackers when my wife was in the later phases. A very innocent "Just take a slow breath dear" nearly had my head cut off!
    4) The midwife is right, but it does mean you're getting close!

  7. Is the post below from email? I've had it work many times for me.

    Good luck for the next few days! Forget about having somewhere to live, you can always just tell the nurses you need an extra night or two in hospital.

    How excitement!
