Of all the old wives tales about pregnancy, the only one I can really get behind is the idea of a labor cake. I forget the logic, but supposedly eating something super chocolatey and rich is supposed to set your labor off early. Naturally, as my due date approached, I was willing to undergo such an experiment, for science, of course.
Spoiler: it didn’t work, but I think maybe I need to try again with a larger slice. Or several. You know…for science.
