a few things


Right. The consultant has confirmed that things are okay - I am not currently about to go in to labour and the leaking has stopped. Apparently the head is not at all engaged, so if I was having any kind of serious leak I'd really know about it. It might have been a pinhole that has healed up. But whatever, it's stopped.

Braxtons, less so. If I do anything. Like walk up the steps to the garden.

I have to hang in for the next six weeks - after week 34 things are pretty safe, apparently.

In the meantime, we have been freecycling stuff like mad and getting the end room ready to rent out. In all the emails I respond to, I ask people to ring B's mobile phone to arrange a time and get directions:

B: Hello! B here!
Caller: Hello?! Hello!? Hello?!
B: Hello! B speaking!
Caller: Hello?! Hello!? Hello?!
B: [pause]
Caller: Hello!? Hello!? Hello?!
B: Hello?
In background behind caller: Stop saying 'hello' and tell him what you're bloody well ringing for!

Also, if you ever freecycle a macerator and someone phones you about it on a very poor mobile phone line, do make sure that you are both talking about the same thing before you hang up thinking it's a dirty phone call. "I am phoning about the macerator" is open to so much misinterpretation.

Of such small joys is one's day made lighter.

  6. Sweetie, I fell with No2Child about half way thru my pregnancy and began spotting and getting very strong BH's. I drank lots of water and cut out caffeine (not completely, but quite a lot) and things settled down an awful lot. Dunno if it would help you, but it is worth a shot.
