Had my 37 wk appt yesterday and did a quick hispital tour so that I know where to go and what to expect when the time comes. This kid can come out anytime now (preferably not today, don't want to spend my bday in labour)

Off topic note - my computer died a few days.ago so i can,only check in with my phone right now (which is more complicated). Don't worry about not seeing me much for the next little while.

Btw i feel like an idiot, i just realized what a cat call is... Is was thinking more along the lines of saying here baby baby baby, completely different!


As Ina May Gaskin has said: "What got the baby in will get the baby out."  Get that husband of yours to start cat calling and maybe something will happen that WILL get that baby out!!

No need to worry Theresa, I will find a way to check in. We found an inexpensive bluetooth keyboard for our tablet so that i have a better way to use the internet than my phone and it is marginally better.

samantha - i have been drinking rrl tea (and capsules) for 5 wks a nd started taking epo last week and get to up the doseage today. Generally trying to keep active and let gravity help out. Dtd didn't help at all last time but i need to get at it anyway, can't hurt to try.

Just had a wonderful birthday lunch - best gift ever. My 5 yr old picked out and decorated the kitchen while i was told to nap. She's a sweetie, gotta enjoy it while it lasts! Thank you everyone for the bday wishes!

WOOOHOOOO!!! Do you plan on doing anything to try to speed things along? I have a birthing ball I plan to start using in a couple weeks...

I've been sitting on mine for a month or so off and on.  It's so much more comfortable and easier to get up from than a chair.  And it has helped my back so much too!  I say just sit on it now!  :-) 

 

Are they supposed to speed up the process though?  I hadn't read that.
