My wife is due to give birth any time now and it's driving us both crazy.

The doctor has said she is a hair away from labor starting for almost 2 weeks now. Every time the phone rings at my desk I hope it's her calling to tell me the contractions have started.

It's nerve racking to say the least. When our first was born it just started one morning and we really were surprised because she wasn't that far along on her last weekly doctor's visit.

Anxiously waiting and counting every minute over here............. :headspin:

Well they say taking your wife for a ride down a bumpy road will help start things. Supposedly A1 and mashed potatoes will do the same thing. <---I don't know how true that is though. Sometimes being intimate :naughty: :naughty: can get the labor rolling too..

:rofl:

We tried spicy foods, long walks, ankle massages, and we bumped uglies last night.

My co-worker just had their second 2 weeks ago today and he came back yesterday. He said him and the wife got intimate and within 30 mins she started her labor :smile: So.... I called the wife and told her which set things into motion. Didn't work though :confused:

It is always worth a try, right? Good luck on the child birth - I'm sure it will go fine. After the third it wasn't a month and a half and my wife asked when/if we were going to have another. I smiled and said we had to practice. My wife didn't find that comment so funny, :rofl: .

Jack,

Usually my wife is too tired, cold, hot, hungry, or you name it. We have a joke between us about the airspeed and temperture having to be just right for the perfect conditions.

It all goes out the window when we go on vacation though :rolleyes: I need to take her on more vacations!

This time she just wanted that baby out of her :rofl:

Cephus--

I'm always impressed when I find another man thats delivered babies.I think it's a trip.

And Jeff, my second one by a given woman was always late.

Thank God that was the case on my last one; otherwise it would have put < 10 months between that one and the one before instead of the barely acceptable 10 1/2 months.

Good luck and best wishes!

If you want to hurry this along, why don't you just start another important project or something that requires patience and a lot of careful work. That is what my cousin did when they were waiting for his wife to deliver. 20 minutes past the point of no return on the project, she went into labor. This happened twice, so it should work for you too. :thumbup1:

That happend to my neighbor. He was painting a car for someone in his shop when his wife went into labor. :)

Thanks Custer, all the other stuff hasn't worked, but maybe bump firing? Never heard an old wives tale about that yet. :chinese:
