in a mob attack on the next person that says, "Go do a lot of walking to get that baby out!" or "Have lots of sex!"???

 

Seriously, people, I walk as much as I can (I think I have SPD so it's rather painful) as it is, and I had sex frequently right up until it got so uncomfortable that I'd rather be pregnant for the rest of my life than have sex again.

 

Do people really think these are some kind of magical trick?  And I'm not even 40 weeks, folks!!

 

I feel better now, thanks for listening. :)

My favorite was "do you feel like you're getting close?" Made me "feel" quite violent...

lol.gif My FIL suggested I go to the 3rd step of our stairwell and jump off.  Because I definitely need to go into labor with 2 broken ankles!!!

 

We've had lots of people give us advice on how to get things starts.  DTD, spicy food, pepperoni pizza, walking, etc.  Everyone close to us knows that DD (whose birthday is today!!  3 years old!) was a c-section, and some inconsiderate people have said things like, "you know, you could just schedule the repeat c-section and be done with it..."  Which, yes, is true, but hello, MAJOR SURGERY?!?!  Plus, at fully effaced and 3cm, my body seems to be doing a good job going into labor (taking its sweet time, but doing it).

Just have to say I hope our targets for this mob attack are slow moving. I love the idea of the lumbering slow-moving pack of preggos coming on the attack.

I'm staying away from people who aren't my Dh or pregnant. I don't like them.

ROTFLMAO.gifYou saying we're not at max performance?? I cracked DH up the other day when I was trying to get out of bed to "chase" him for making a smart moon.gif remark. He literally was falling down laughing. I told him, "You know if I didn't have 7-8 lbs of baby in front of me I'd be getting out of this bed quicker!"

i was just the other day thinking about how i walked the stairs like crazy with #1 trying to get things started after water broke.....this time around i could maybe do 1 flight and there'd have to be a pretty darn good reason to get up there.
