    haha tbh I'm a huge football fan as well and the world cup did cross my mind!! My DH is a Man Utd fan and he's already joking about a boy called Wayne etc etc!

    My hubby is the same - he wants me to go overdue so that his paternity leave will co-incide with the world cup :wacko:

    He also suggested postponing his pat leave for a few weeks if i'm on time - I went nuts, he would leave me with our new born child in the name of football?!?!?!

    I hope I go early just to spite him!! Just how much football does he think he'll be able to watch when there is a baby to care for!!!

    Nicola - my b/f said exactly the same thing to me! He is actually planning to postpone his pat leave. I can almost see his mind whirring about when to start getting the beers in.

    They're cheeky buggers aren't they?!? I don't think mine would actually dare to delay his leave starting but I do think he'll have his fingers crossed that I go late so he can watch as much as possible!

    At our hospital the parentcraft classes are on a Monday, Wednesday or Thursday night My husband insisted we booked our classes for Thursday nights. When i questioned him about this he said quite matter of factly it's because there is never any football on that night. The mid wife said the Thursday classes are the most popular for this very reason.
