Good food and service in a pleasant setting are the secrets to the Blue Bell Inn's enormous popularity. Indeed, even on normally quiet weeknights, this Montgomery County restaurant is likely to be crowded. With several comfortable, beautifully decorated dining rooms, the inn has been a fixture since 1743. The focal point of the main dining room is a spotlighted floral centerpiece of peach anthurium, purple statice pussy willows and orange gladioli about to burst into bloom.

The men were carrying pillows and the women were carrying babies. Several area couples attended a Lamaze refresher class last week given by Ursula Bennett, a registered nurse who is the Lamaze-prenatal coordinator at Abington Memorial Hospital. During the class, the fathers propped their pregnant wives up with pillows while they supervised Lamaze breathing exercises. Then the men joined the women in a wide-ranging discussion that touched on circumcision, postpartum blues and sibling rivalry.

Breathe. Blow when you pant. No! No! BLOW, don't push. Arghhhhh. As though having a baby pummeling your insides is not enough to think about, there is the pant-pant-blow of natural childbirth to keep straight. (Or is that blow-pant-pant? Blow-pant? Pant-blow?) Each year, about 800 expectant moms take evening childbirth lessons at Pennsylvania Hospital, 8th and Spruce streets (from 6 to 8 p.m. or 7 to 9 p.m.) Most of the lessons ($60 for six weeks) teach breathing patterns that, in theory, will relax the muscles and reduce the pain.

Claims that natural childbirth training, such as the Lamaze method, can abolish the pain of labor are being disputed by a pain researcher. Ronald Melzack, a psychology professor at McGill University in Montreal, reports in the August issue of Psychology Today that natural childbirth training can reduce labor pain by up to 30 percent in some women, but that the majority still request painkillers. Melzack, the president of the International Association for the Study of Pain, also reports that children, cancer patients and postsurgery patients may suffer unnecessary pain because of physicians' having what he describes as out-of-date information about pain relief.

I had been waiting for the call ever since my daughter told me that she and her husband had "pulled the goalie. " So when she said, "I'm pregnant," I wasn't surprised. My daughter Ariel Stern and her husband Jesse Silverman had been married 3 1/2 years. She was 30, the same age I was when I had her. And yet, I couldn't fathom the change. Child to mother. Mother to... Good God. At 61, I am way past my due date. A recent AARP study found that the average age of first-time grandparents is 47. But we boomers have trouble letting go of our delusions that we are too young for almost everything.

Jamie Langenbrunner was at home in Dallas on Wednesday night, worrying about his wife less than a week from her due date, when the telephone rang. It was Lou Lamoriello, the general manager of the U.S. Olympic hockey team, telling the Dallas Stars forward to get to Japan. Shawn McEachern's bad back had left him unable to play. "I got the call at 10 p.m., and at 8 a.m., I was on a plane headed here," said a groggy Langenbrunner after playing in the Americans' 5-2 victory over Belarus yesterday.

Ready for a new camp classic? Jessica Lange does everything short of beating poor Gwyneth Paltrow with a wire hanger in the ridiculous new thriller "Hush. " She doesn't serve up a rat on a dinner plate, but dead rodents do fall on Gwynnie's head. She doesn't boil a rabbit, but she does terrorize an old lady in a steambath. "Hush," like an NBC woman-in-peril movie with an all-star cast and extravagant production values, feverishly pits old blonde against young, threatens to separate mother and child, drops a few tantalizing hints of sexual and moral depravity - and then goes nowhere.

So my wife and I are preparing for childbirth. When I say "my wife and I," I of course mean "my wife. " She will be the most directly involved. On behalf of all men, I just want to take a moment here to get down on my knees and thank whoever invented our current biological system, under which the woman's job is to have the baby somehow go from the inside of her body to the outside of her body, in clear violation of every known law of physics, and the man's job is to stand around looking supportive and periodically, no matter what is actually happening to the woman, say, in an upbeat and perky voice, "You're doing great!"

Darren Daulton soon will go from catching deliveries to aiding a delivery. Lynne Austin Daulton, wife of the Phillies' No. 1 catcher and Miss May in the 1990 Playboy calendar, has a Monday due date for the couple's first child. And Darren, after subjecting himself to seven Lamaze classes, is pumped to assist. "I'm a genius now," Daulton kidded. "I might deliver that baby. " Daulton says he has received permission from club officials to join his wife as quickly as possible when the big moment comes.
