On love and labour

Being in labour is like being in love.

If you have to keep asking yourself: "Is this it?", it almost certainly isn't.

  1. I'll assume you're not then... ;-) No action here either, though I've a hair appointment tomorrow so sod's law says that won't be happening....

  2. Nope. Not so far. Lots of twinges and he's dropped by about six feet, but nothing actually happening.

    And at least you've finished work now...

  4. Well, exactly, as someone once said to me in the context of love: "When you know, you know". Think that one works for labour as well!

  6. This post is complete and utter genius. That is exactly what it was like.

    In the end I decided to ignore everything that could be ignored. I was still convinced that it wasn't for real when I was having contractions every five minutes!

  8. :) So true! I had "contractions" for a week before my waters broke. So many things I didn't do because I thought it "might" be happening...

  11. Deer Baby - yes, any time - which is beginning to irritate rather. Why can't they be definite about these things?! (And thank you! Very excited about that one...)

    Kelly - glad it's not just me then!

    Solveig - thank you!

    MilkChic - well, I'm still doing stuff (B&Q yesterday, dinner out on Friday (curry), lunch with friends today, but I'm boring myself with the wondering...

    AH - thank you!

    Kelloggsville - so true - the thing is I can't remember with L how it started, when it properly started, so I'm still driving myself mad wondering!

  14. Calif Lorna - Thank you!

    Circus Queen - oh no! I thought they were inducing you on Monday so have been checking in for news! Am not fed up of being pregnant so much as mind-blowingly bored of continuously thinking "it might be today..."

I know. I'm sorry. I hate these word recognition, are you a robot, guff things too, but having just got rid of a large number of ungrammatical and poorly spelt adverts for all sorts of things I don't want, and especially don't want on my blog, I'm hoping that this will mean that only lovely people, of the actually a person variety, will comment.

So please do. Comments are great...
