I am due to become a grandad any day now,but I am going overseas to work for four week on friday.
I was joking with my daughter about all the old wifes tales to bring on delivery.Whats the best you have heard?
I was told that I could have a drink! LOL. True story. I had two weeks left to have my son and I was 4 centimeters dilated, I wasn't in labor. The midwives said if I wanted to have him that night I should just have a relaxing night. They told me to go home, take a bubble bath and have either two glasses of wine or beer and chips that i liked to eat. At that time I craved Nacho cheese doritos. I got in the tub with my Corona and big bag of doritos and enjoyed it. I did this at around 6pm. At 12am I went into labor. I rushed to the hospital and had my son 6 hours later.
The midwives said that since the baby was fully developed it was ok for me to do. It wasn't going to affect him, it was only going to relax my uteran muscles and help get me into labor.
