Giving birth on TV

Is it just me, or over the last few years has their been an explosion of shows like One Born Every Minute? I'm not usually one for day time telly (it's usually kids TV through the day if the telly is on) but today I have a house full of poorly, sleeping kids so I thought I'd flick through the Old Idiot Box. I've stumbled across Maternity Ward shortly followed by Desperate Midwives. And yes, I'm watching!

Now I'll be honest, I LOVE OBEM! I've recorded the whole of the latest series and I am saving it for when I do get pregnant next (watching it any sooner than our planned TTC will have me flushing my pill by the 1st ad break). Can't help but wonder how I would feel if they came to our local maternity ward, if I was a mum-to-be about to give birth while they were hanging about with their cameras. Would I want to be on the show? It's no secret that I am an over-sharer, especially when it comes to TTC, pregnancy, and birth stories.... but there's a huge difference between writing a blog or posting in forums, and giving birth on national television.

Ok, there's a bit of me that would LOVE it! Maybe I should go and drop an email to Channel 4 now......

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
