Blimey, am i getting it in the ear!!
I've come in the spare room with a kitkat, laptop, bottle of pepsi & some anadin for a bit of peace!!
Cutting it short - 'er indoors is still pregnant - She's actually due 5th July-ish but she went into 'slow labour' 2weeks ago!
Then all things came to a screeching halt & since then the poor cow has been to hell & back - swollen feet/legs, back pains, nausea, pains everywhere else.
And boredom- she's used to working full time but is now off. Our familys live 100's miles away (thank god) & all our mates work so she's at home alone most of day. I also work some evenings/weekend as well which doesnt help.
Tonight the inevitable happened- mood swings. Don't want to sound unsympathetic but I think i'm better off out of her way for a bit.
She's (we've) tried everything to 'hurry' things along - she had me driving over speed bumps at 2am last night & we have even upped the obvious 'other activity' but to no avail.
My boss recommended castor oil & orange juice cocktails!
The midwives where we live don't seem much help- but I'm a bloke & i don't suppose my opinion on that counts for much. All i know is that surely they should be there for some kind of support rather than a once a fortnight 10 minute appointment if you're lucky.
The baby is our 2nd (& last) - our 1st now being 10 yrs old. I have discreetly pointed out we are a tad older & things will be different but I nearly got a telly in my face.
Anyway, I think I'm tapping the keys too loud cos i can hear movements so I'm off to hide.
Keep you posted if/when she finally pops the melon.
edit - ps - do you reckon i should ask her if it would be ok if i nip out for a couple of pints??
