    ok just took 2T castor oil, lets see if it starts anything. I'd much rather do this than an induction. Wonder how long it will take to kick in. It really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. From the way everyone else made it sound I thought it would have this nasty bitter taste. I barely tasted it in my OJ but we'll see what it does to me and hopefully soon.

    Well it took almost 3 hrs but finally having those bms shoot out, lol. But it doesn't seem to be doing anything else. At least my insides will be clean

    nope still nothing. So I did more research on things and found out about cohosh so I went out and got some blue cohosh and am researching to see if I should try it tonight or tomorrow. I'm leaning towards tomorrow. I did have twice as many contractions today, baby was way more active and my bowels should be really really clean.

    I know nothing about the cohosh, but from everything I've read it works great. Hope it can get something started!!!

    well I did 3 tries of the cohosh this morning ( a few drops every hour under the tongue) and all I got were more intense contraxs and a numb tongue. All well. I guess she's just not going to let me do anything.

    On the bright side, went for a nice long walk with a friend and her 2 kiddos and she let me know she'd be glad to watch the kiddos for me when I go into labor which takes a load off me. I wasn't sure how to ask her but she'd work out the best out of every one I know. As soon as I got home I had 2 contraxs right on top of each other and thought maybe that's what I needed, to get the kids sitter in line and that would destress me enough to go into labor. Nope, lol. So here I am just waiting. Again, I dont' mind the wait, DH is more impatient than I am, but I think it has more to do with the fact he doesn't know how easily an induction can lead to a c-sec if things don't go well and I'm doing my best to avoid it, hence the trying to get things started at home, but not with a lot of shoving on my end, if that makes sense. So I'm off to eat some lunch, maybe nap, and hopefully do a little more cleaning. I was hoping to just put off the rest of the cleaning till she came, but seeing as how she's not coming and I don't want to move the house back again I guess it leaves me with little choice. There's not much left. Just the little things that just seem to get on all the surfaces with no place of their own. I'm thinking they should go into an open box in the garage so they're not cluttering the house but still accessable.
    Oh and yes, she's still OP.

    We went to the pool yesterday, which was totally fun. I tried to tummy float as much as my kiddos would let me but got no more than 5 mins total in of that. However when I got out for about 10 glorious secs I thought my water broke only to find out the sudden loss of being weightless just made me pee on myself. I'm pretty sure one guy was laughing at me while I told DH to get over there to take DD so I could go to the bathroom as my legs were obviously crossed and clenched in a potty dance-like state, lol. I think that's about all I have for now.

    We have an induction date for this Thurs! I can't believe she might be here by then. Not my ideal birth but at least its not an automatic c-sec. Trust me I'd still much rather go on my own and still plan on giving it my best till I have to go.
