    God sometimes it feels like I have two children as opposed to one. You're a smart guy, so why cant you use your brain?

    It sux that most of the time men dont think like us. Its so hard but I had to change my whole way of thinking about it, my DH was shocking at offering me help as well so I just started handing him DS1 and told him point blank I was tired or needed a break. He never minded and after a few months of doing this without getting cranky or upset at DH for not offering, would you believe he started offering all on his own! Its worth a shot, cos otherwise you're most likely just going to keep being disappointed by his lack of offer to help. Hugs xo

    Still no baby
    Baking peanut butter choc chip cookies did not start labor.
    Eating nearly ALL the cookies did not start labor.
    100% sure the pain in my belly is cookie induced and not baby induced.

    I'm going to make jelly slice. Then if that doesn't work, I will make a sponge cake. After that, i'm all out of ideas.
    And for the baby... DP has already told me he is telling the Ob tomorrow to "get it out"

    sounds an awful lot like my df!

    Mmm- jelly slice and sponge cake! I'm there!! I made lemon slice yesterday, and a Madeira cake, which I've since discovered I don't like!

    Yes - there is nothing else to do. I feel too gross to leave the house so that only leaves cooking since I don't like cleaning. I'm going to cook my way into labor!
    Lemon slice sounds good! I've never made it. Madeira cake - i'm not sure i'm a fan. Is it a bit dense?

    So I was just at the local pool and there was a couple in the next lane engaging in some undesirable activities (at least in a public pool where other people are swimming around). I'm sure the lifeguards knew what was happening as they kept walking past them, but no one said anything to them. Neither my friend or I were game enough to say anything as they were both quite big and a bit rough looking. Surely they realised we could see what they were doing?

    Some people really don't think other people can really tell I think. And eewww! I hope there was no happy ending.

    Default The Not So Serious Vent Thread #3

    @firsttimemum34 here is my foolproof plan. Wait until you're exhausted. I know you are already. Even more exhausted.

    Gather yourself together to haul your ar$e down the stairs to assemble a delectable tasting plate of plump green glistening grapes, firm cubes of cheddar cheese, smooth and enticing quince paste, and dark chocolate.

    Have a long, luxuriant shower. Wash your hair. Settle yourself in bed, wet hair and all, in a big, soft bath sheet with tasting plate and chick show of choice on DVD.

    Press play.

    Wait for waters to break. This should take roughly 30 seconds.

    Hang in there. When your bub is in your arms this agonizing wait will be a distant memory.

    My plan for you. It worked for me once.

    Wake up decide I am not having bub today so I am going sit in this chair and not move unless going to the toilet. I was going to just rest so when bub came, I would be fully rested for Labour. It Lasted a few hours
