    I'm sorry Dede! ((((Hugs))))

    Have you thought about nipple stimulation? That may be another way to naturally try to get your body into a labor pattern with out all the yucky toilet side-effects.
    And, not to get personal, but have you and DH been having relations? With "O's" for you? Not only does he provide some needed hormones, but your O's help contract and relax your cervix. Consider it a bonus how great it can make you feel.

    I'm sorry you're facing induction with your Dr. but try to remember that things happen for a reason, no matter what that reason is, even if it's not clear to us or not what we had planned. There is a higher power guiding us.

    Please feel free to complain here all you want, that's what we're here for -- support!

    I hope she comes for you soon, but as Jennifer said, maybe you could try some other stimulation techniques. GL

    Sex is pretty regular around here with EPO as a lubricant. I'm at a loss. I meant to go get a breast pump yesterday - but we never made it to the store for all the walking and eggplant

    My cervix is softened (doc's words) and it's in the front. I just wish something would kick start this baby into action. She's too comfy... way too comfy.

    Well hun, if its any consolation, I’m a 3rd time prego, only a few days behind you, yet you’re miles ahead of me. My cervix is WAY in the back, long, hard as a rock and not dialated at all. Does that help encourage you at all? It sure makes me

    And ya know - that does make me feel better how are you dealing with that? I think I'd be a bit more insane than I am now.

    Well, I have accepted a long time ago that my body is just not one to do anything before it has to. With my DD, I didn't have any pre-labor signs at my 40w Dr. apt (no dialation, no effacement, still posterior, etc) and that next morning at 3am my water broke. My DD was born at 7pm that night. So...I guess I have just come to realize that this pg will probably be the same way. When Makenna's ready, she'll come. Nothing I can do will make it happen any faster.
    Now, mind you -- this is a good day! Catch me on a bad day and my outlook will be a bit more "glass half empty." :Lol:

    I think the best thing we can do is to just forget about impending labor. How ever that's possible. Once we forget about it, it will happen. So, how can we distract eachother? (asked while posting on a pregnancy board talking about labor/delivery and reading other birth stories)

    If we knew the answer to this one we'd be billionaires.

    Hang in there! She will come out and you have had GREAT progress!


    Molly was born at 40 wks 5 days. I was fine waiting, but my doctor was also fine with it so that probably helped ease my worries. I had no progress the morning she was born. I had passed a bit of the plug, that was all. No dilation, very little effacement. So you are doing great! As long as your flags are gone, I would try to make it to Friday if she doesn't come before!

    So, (OT) have you seen any great movies???

    Thanks Beth.. I'm trying to relax, but it's been so hard trying to relax but not thinking about trying to relax. DH bought me a ton of DVD's for my birthday - one of which is the series Army Wives. So that's what we've been watching all day. I haven't really gone to the movies much since getting pregnant - can't sit long without having to run to the restroom.

    Okay.. continue trying to relax.

    So my wonderful DH made me a castor oil cocktail at 1pm, both of us hoping it would jumpstart things. I mean, baby girls head is right there - ready to go, but she's locked in tight behind my cervix... better known as Fort Knox.

    So... TMI here ladies... after messing my capris and my birthball which dh so humbly cleaned, we've got NOTHING!

    NOTHING AT ALL!

    So I'm signing off this whole natural induction train. We're still praying she'll come before Tuesday.

    I swear.. I feel like a gambler in Vegas - anybody want to place any bets, because I'm sucking at this game.
