Your time has probably already run out if you are thinking of flying. HERE

Yes..that's a huge consideration.

Babies sometimes come early too or late. My 2nd came at 37 weeks !

Hi, are you the same one who was going round the world (Australia, Dubai) last Autumn, worrying about knickers?

I gave birth near Barcelona and am wondering if this really is a good idea for you and your baby. I am not being negative for the sake of it or trying to frighten you, I admire your guts wanting to do it, but I think it is all a big rush and things would be less stressful in the UK. I personally think it will be a nightmare to sort out a hospital that will accept you and that you feel happy with in such a short space of time. I know in theory you can arrive in Spain and once in labour any public hospital will have to "deal with you", but this can be stressful (believe me...). And it's too late to get private healthcare unless you already have it. Home births are possible but booking that now may be hard too. Feel free to PM me, I can help out as I've been there done that and have lots of contacts there (including other pregnant ladies and a women's health centre!). And here is a website that will prove invaluable: http://www.barcelonabirth.net/

Sorry but this all sounds ridiculous.
You're moving 4 weeks before you are due, where you don't speak ANY spanish although your BF does but he's so busy he can't find time to help the mother and his child even with a few words.
Sorry if you don't like my opinion but I have more consideration for your baby than I do for the parents.

I think just like the no-knicker post it's a wind-up

rachel26 is probably twice that age, bald and male with who gets their kicks in strange ways!

Well I got that impression from the comments earlier and it sounds ridiculous enough to be a wind up but mitzyboy thinks it's legit and he's the one who decides on these things.
Either way it's ridiculous

The content and style of the thread is odd enough, and if you look at all the OP's earlier threads and posts elsewhere on the BE forum, this thread becomes unbelievable.
If the OP proves to be bona fide, then I apologise...
