    So I was actually thinking about going into town today - I dont really need anything but am bored sitting around at home on my own because OH is at work - it's my due date today and no twinges at all. Maybe the walking around will promote some reaction?

    The big question is, how real is this free stuff if your waters break in a shop, and does it have to be your waters, because quite frankly that sounds really embarrasing! Could I not just go into labour? Or is that not good enough?

    I've heard this off a few people. I think it's places like M&S and John Lewis etc where you'll get some vouchers etc. I keep threatening to do the rounds at the Trafford Centre and do lunges in particular shops in the hope it works. I wondered about the Apple store until someone pointed out I'd prob just get the bill for cleaning up the mess instead :shock: :D

    Go for a walk and find out - then if it happens you can let us know which shop to hang around in or to avoid depending on what you get. lol

    I heard today you get £600 in vouchers if your waters break in mothercare!! But this person also told me that 2p in your mouth tricks a breathalyser which raises many a question :(

    But how would they know?? Might wait til mine go, wander in and pour a bottle of water down me trousers and see what I get, it's opposite the hospital here in Romford ;)

    It's an old tale that you out it in your mouth so when your breath tested it will show you below the limit! Needless to say we were told when training it doesn't work!
