Don't tell the Hubby, but since about 11:30 this morning, I've felt that I've started with very mild labour contractions. Don't tell him, because he's already a nervous wreck and it didn't help that his older sister decides to call up today, after about a 4 month phone silence to wind him up with her harrowing tale of the birth of her last child. Who does that?! And she knows his nervous disposition. You should have seen the look on his face. I had to assure him that that sort of thing is very rare and I've read up on it and not to worry. So I'm going to wait to tell him when things really get going, who knows the contractions may even stop for awhile.
In the mean time I made some energy bar/flapjacks with oats, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut, raisins and of course chocolate. And some carrot cake muffins and have done a mental inventory of contents of fridge and larder and am confident that he could feed himself and the Girl if need be for the next few days. Anyway the store is a short walk away and he can buy some ready meals. *sharp intake of breath... the shame of that idea!*
