I have two girlfriends who are pregnant. Overdue. Waiting. Just waiting for their children to be born. One of my friends already has a child, so she knows what she’s in for. The other is a first time mom.
It amazed me each time I was pregnant how badly I wanted the baby to come… that is, until labor started. Once those contractions hit, I was like, “What the heck was I thinking???!!!!” Gentlemen, this is about the time your mate starts calling you names and telling you never to touch her again.
When I was in those last few days/weeks of my pregnancies and I wanted nothing more than for my baby to come out already, I was given and tried many suggested options to start labor, including:
Nipple stimulation (via the breast pump. It sucked. Pun intended.)
Cleaning the floor
Patience (that one never worked….)
My gift for my two expecting girlfriends is this post. Moms/Dads/Grandmas/Grandpas… what is your advice for getting those babies out?
