Lilmamita; that is really cool about your uncle!
CDsMom; I would be annoyed by that too. Actually my OH is similar in that he's been having 3 beers at the weekend every weekend, and still does. But at least he's not the one who would be driving me to hospital.
My daughter is still being incredibly stressful at bedtimes. She's back in the cot bed for now, but the other thing I have stopped doing is holding her hand. So now she's having tantrums over that every night. I understand that she's acting up because she's scared of losing me to the needs of a baby, but the whole thing is really stressing me out. Can nightly stressful situations prevent labour from starting? Because if so I'll never get this baby out!
What I'm really worried about is how she's going to behave when the baby is here. I'm already worried about coping with two kids, but I have no idea how I will manage if she's acting up at the same time as I'm trying to deal with a newborn. I'm really dreading things getting too much for me to cope with. I don't suppose there's any hope of her calming down and relaxing a bit once she's met the baby?
And because I'm desperate to get the baby out, we DTD with a condom with the end cut off. I may have had a couple of twinges afterwards, but not much. It's all a bit of a faff, but I'm determined to get labour going! This weekend would be ideal, but I really don't think it's going to happen somehow.
