I don't want to tempt fate, but I think I might need some concealer for my spot by tomorrow. Lisa and I have just been to her last antenatal appointment, and the midwife's pretty much guaranteed us a baby this weekend. Although Sunday's the due date, so she's not really sticking her neck out.

One neck which is sticking out, however, is Lisa's cervix. Apparently she's already two centimetres dilated, and the midwife could feel the baby's head. She did what's known as a 'sweep' - so called because much like Sooty & Sweep, it involves putting a glove on, saying 'izzy wizzy, let's get busy', and then performing some magic with two fingers. As a result, she discovered that Lisa's lady-parts are so close to being ready, she said she'll be amazed if we don't have a baby within twenty-four hours.

As if that wasn't enough, she added that Lisa's cervix is so stretchy and pliable, and the baby so low, that she can virtually guarantee us a quick labour. It could be the fastest opening ceremony we see all evening. I don't know whether to pop down to Asda while I've still got the chance, or just sit in the car with the engine running.

It would be nice if he could put in an appearance BEFORE Sunday.  I'm not keen on double birthdays.
