Joke 706

27 Feb

The room was full of pregnant women with their partners. The class was in full swing. The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe and was telling the men how

to give the necessary assurance to their partners at this stage of the pregnancy.

She said, “Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier.  Just make several stops and stay on a soft surface like grass or a path.”

She looked at the men in the room. “And Gentlemen, remember – you’re in this together – it wouldn’t hurt you to go walking with her.”

The room went quiet as the men absorbed this information.  Then a man at the back of the room slowly raised his hand.

“Yes?” asked the Instructor.

“I was just wondering if it would be all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?”


Thanks to Elaine at I Used To be Indecisive for this one.

    Although it has been many years since I had that belly, I always enjoyed expecting……Such a joy of being a new mommy

    That man is NOT going to be a good daddy. But they might produce a Rory McIlroy or an Ernie Els.

    I remember walking MILES for three solid weeks trying to bring on labor. My daughter was three and a half weeks late and we had a terrible labor and an emergency Caesarean section. Walking is not all it’s cracked up to be. And no, my husband did NOT walk with me. He had to be dragged kicking and screaming to the La Maze classes, too. In the end, we never made it to the delivery room, only to surgery. What a waste.

    Good one, Tilly. 😀


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
