The baby was due yesterday – nowt happening!
Aye Rob, well just try to imagine how your wife is feeling!Posted 8 years ago
I went 3 and 5 days over with mine. When my due date arrived and there was no sign of a baby I thought…"that's it, I'm going to be pregnant forwever!"
It'll happen soon enough. We went out for a walk to pass the time with my first, only to return and find out that my PineMountain and MrFC's Yoeddy had been stolen!!!
Kind of took our minds off the baby for a while…I went into labour that evening… 8)sharkiMember
yep,if all othersw efforts fail then intercourse is a great way to bring on labour, it'll relax her and stop you both thinking about it…….
By the way it's a girl,
The further the sperm has to travel the more likely it'll be a girl as the male producing sperms are weak in general and poorer swimmers…!
So as you've a little weener and you wear tight pants you male sperm count will be low too.
All the best for the both of you.

Our were all over by nearly a fortnight, we ended up lying about the dates with the last one so they wouldn't induce. The due date is basically a guess within about a twelve day spread with conception possible outside of that too, so don't sweat it. They do say that at this time it's a good idea to have lots of sex, including oral, and hot curries. Just don't let the wife find out.Posted 8 years agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
First one went a week over – at which point they finally did the exam/scan we had been asking for for 8 months and determined that MrsSwadeys disability had deformed her hip/pelvis enough to make a natural birth out of the question, so he was born next day courtesy of a C-section.
Thank God he was late….Posted 8 years agojojoA1Member
Oral sex (she has to swallow) and nipple twiddling. Seriously.
Nipple twiddling stimulates prostaglandin production and can bring on contractions. The same phenomenon as when breastfeeding stimulates the contraction of the uterus back to it's original size, you can feel it happening.
Semen also contains prostaglandins and as has been said before, it works better via a GI route than vaginal insertion.

oral sex including swallowing?? fat chance here, both mine were on time.
Even worse, when we phoned in to the maternity unit they said they were chocca, so best to wait at home for as long as we could. I asked the wife what she wanted to do to pass the time.
So I rubbed her back for nearly 5 hours while we watched Sound of Music right through. Twice.
Good luck!!Posted 8 years agoYardley_HastingsMember
congrats to the mybikes, that's a great size and hopefully all goes smoothly
Mr Harris – enjoy the lateness, ours were due to be C-sectioned second half of October (identical twins), instead they made a successful bid for freedom last friday. hadn't even thought about what to pack in a bag, let alone buy the bag to put the requisite parts in.
Girls are doing well for almost 28 weekers, Eleanor weighed in at 365g and Georgiana at 900g. Think the next few weeks could be a bit tough, particularly as Eleanor is in Oxford and Georgie in Milton Keynes.
Don't think the bike is going to be seeing much action in the near future, but watching babies breathe is even more enthralling
