72 hours to the due day -- but no sign of my son and heir yet.

According to which old wives tale you read, labour can be helped along through long walks, pineapples, hot curries and sex (although crucially, it's not made clear whether the sex has to be with the mum-to-be).

I'm going to be knackered and have chronic indigestion come Monday.

Its definitely worth it!

It's also not made clear if it has to be with the dad-to-be....

I wish you all the best.

My son was born on Nov 6th almost 19 years ago, may yours bring you as much joy as mine is bringing to us.

I will ABSOLUTELY concur with the curry and sex tale. How do you think Ben arrived?

Hope he's not like his little cousin - had to be dragged out at 43 weeks!

A woman went into labour after listening to my commentary of the 2001 Superleague ice hockey play-off semi-final. Strange but true. If you are still hanging around next week, give us a buzz as I'm sure I have it on mini disc somewhere! :-)
