Feels good, slow going. Note to self: must NEVER stipulate a non-fast labour again. Never, ever, ever.

Eurovision babe and I are having a Robbie Williams moment (as in, here we are now, entertain us...) Ctx have dropped right down in frequency to 8 minutes or so, which is not one of my usual prodromal spacings, but got me out of bed, which is pretty much unheard of. Well. No. It is unheard of

Hurts again That's probably my fault for taking castor oil when everything stalled out again at 4am, right?

Well, learn from my experiences, ladies. Don't try castor oil until you are completely, totally and utterly desperate and preferably at LEAST 42 weeks. I'm 1 minute from the 6 hour mark, and expecting everything to die down again very soon, because I have a big date with a pub, a stone circle, sheep and a crystal shop this afternoon, and there is no way of leaving the house by car without going over a couple of dozen speed bumps.

Binah, that's the strange thing; no poop. Or at least, no more than usual, since I have turned into a 20-times-a-day kind of gal. Seriously, I have to leave the table in the middle of mealtimes, it's that bad :
Why is it that every thread I post to these days turns into a TMI thread? (hides head under table ashamedly.)
Thankyou, everyone I know that this is the birth that is right for him, and possibly even right for me, but there are times when I wish things were working out otherwise.

Helen, sending you lots of . I also thought I'd share with you one of my fave sayings.... I like it alot especially in trying times.

"When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky."

I know its a little cheesy, but sometimes cheese is what we need. :

My hubby asks me every day "Has Helen had her baby yet?" He's had to listen to me go on and on about the unfairness of it every day, sweet thing thinks of you before I even have a chance to tell him about the day's events. All of us here are thinking of you constantly and sending our love to you. :
