Due Date Evening

Due Date Evening

So, as weve discovered this baby has the same mind set as Noah did: being late! Fashionably late I hope, in that it's nice to mummy! The due date had been and gone but it was an eventful night none the less... It appears that the events are normal and that it doesn't mean labour is any closer than if it hadn't of happened.

I find it quite frustrating with pregnancy that I can't take medication and/or put certain creams on my body, but this product is fine for pregnant women. Its like the old saying goes "it does exactly what it says on the tin", its a big large X plaster that helps to correct your posture and therefore help remove the back pain! I must admit I did feel a bit odd when I first put the big X plaster on my back, I almost felt like everyone could see it, because I was conscious of ...
