Bring on the Broomstick!


My morning internet perusal of how to bring on A.F. evoked the following results:

  1. Ginger
  2. Aspirin
  3. Black Cohosh (sounds a little frightening)
  4. Green Tea
  5. Sex
  6. Yoga
  7. No caffeine
  8. Bubble baths for destressing
  9. Sacrifice a newborn lamb (This little gemstone of chatboard advice is exactly why I typically stick to blogger-world for feedback.)

In my experience over the last 24 months, these are the things that seem to bring on the broomstick at lightening speed:

  1. Wearing your most sexy, white Victoria's Secret panties
  2. Leaving for a weekend getaway with the husband
  3. When she's approximately 3-4 days overdue, and you're convinced that this is the month.

Well, with that said, I'm off to put on some great panties (white, of course) and convince L. that we need to fly to somewhere really fabulous and romantic this weekend.

I'm tellin ya...I'll second the whole sex thing. I swear it brings her every time. That's why we never have it. Ha.

Ugh, she really is a witch, isn't she?? Your plan sounds like it will lead to success. :)

You forgot: Interviews, important client meeting and being stuck somewhere with no option of finding a toilet.

Hey, wait a minute! All of those things are things they recommend to keep AF away during pregnancy (including the lamb thing, probably). Something is amiss.

Stupid AF. She's never timely.

Yes, Womb, you just made me think of another one: meetings with staff who are just announcing their pregnancies! Love it when that happens while I'm writhing in pain (on the inside of course).

Remember when we went to the pool with Joe and that happened? There were no female products anywhere and we had to stay there for hours. Maybe a trip to the pool or the beach are in order.
Love you
