Tick tock, tick tock

For goodness' sake, how much longer? Without doubt, the waiting is the worst part of labour. At least once it's started, you know it will all finally be over at some point in the next few hours. This part, the bit where I wait around, not really able to do much, is much, much worse. Let's just get on with it.

Apparently, however, darling child number three has other ideas (much like her brother and sister before her). So, what to do during these mind-numbing days?

1. Have a cup of tea. Obviously.
2. Clean. Seriously, the bathrooms have never looked so sparkling. 
3. Go shopping. For about 20 minutes, before I discover I can't stand up any more and really need the loo. Again.
4. Log on to work emails. Realise things have moved along nicely without me, and that no one needs anything from me. So, log back on to Twitter. Again.
5. Check the already packed hospital bag. It's still packed. 
6. Check the time. It's 10am. Brilliant. 
7. Probably time for another cup of tea then. 

And so it continues. I think I need to find a decent box-set to distract me...
