Pregnancy, Oestrogen, and Women

PREGNANCY ISSUES

Q: Should I have a baby after 35?
A: No, 35 children is enough.

Q: I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
A: With any luck, right after he finishes university.

A: Childbirth.

Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.
A: So what's your question?

Q: My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labour, but pressure. Is she right?

Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?
A: Right after you find out you're pregnant.

A: Not unless the word 'child support payment' means anything to you.

OMG!!! I laughed so much, especially about the cyclone being likened to an air current. We have just gone through a Category 5 cyclone here in QLD, AUSTRALIA. (A big,big Daddy of a storm.)
