that's the suggestions I've had to hurry this baby along. For those that don't know the wife is due on Sunday. Its our first and whilst half of me can't wait for the whole fatherhood thing I'm secretly sh*tting myself. Been a manic 3 months as we've been having an extension built but its finally done so its just a waiting game now.

The wife is being great and I'm still allowed out on weekend blasts on the bike as long as I've got my phone set to vibrate and I'm within a half hour radius (which in my mind means approx 60 miles). I've suggested taking her to the hospital on the Benelli - surprisingly she's totally up for it although I can't figure out where to put the baby seat for the return journey.

Congratulations, That's great news Ian :clap: .
I was like you myself really looking forward to it and in practice I was a champion nappy changer and bottle maker but deep down I was absolutely bricking em!

my lad was 2 weeks late and we got all the old wives remedies to speed up his arrival, the only one I thought was plausable was the old bit of how's your father remedy :D mind you she was having none of it and pointed out that's what got us to where we were in the first place :rolleyes:

when ever the baby decides to arrive it'll be the best thing that's ever happened to you mate, (apart from the sleepless night's and smelly nappies :rolleyes: :D )

best wishes to both of you and hope it's not too long before he/she arrives.

You'll love it all when it arrives, make sure you get in with the first nappy change etc... you'll be able to live off that one for years!!!

Seriously though it's great and the sleepless nights aint all that bad, it's a amazing to see the little bundle of joy any time of the day or night.

Good luck, best wishes to you and of course to your good lady.

Sorted :rolling:

Hope all goes well for you both and if your planning to be at the birth, remember to stand at the 'unproductive end' ;)

then again, apparently the placenta is quite a delicacy in some cultures!:eek:

You should have let me know - could have bought you lunch. Keep your eyes peeled for me today as I've got the bike with me.

You can vouch for the fact that Aberdeen is the sunniest city in Britain! Albeit a bit chilly!!!
