    I had a great appointment today with my midwife. She was FURIOUS that the doctor stripped my membranes as well. I guess in the medical journal it is very specific that a women who is GBS + (which unfortunatly I am) should not have her membranes stripped, unless is is a last possible option when overdue... So now I am on even more herbs to hopefully clear up or keep the GBS down and outta the way. I don't know if I posted about choosing to do hibicleans instead of antibiotics, but that is what I have chosen to do. The British Medical Journal has a study that shows it is just as effective as antibiotics. My routine of meds is now quite intense which is annoying, but well worth it. Twice daily I take Cheyenne, Nettle, EPO, Vit C, Echinacea, Bioflavanoids, grapefruit extract, Probiotics, my normal prenatal, and 1 quart of Pregnancy Tea (a combination of things, but mostly RRLT). Wow it seems like a lot, oh and then there is the EPO that goes in vaginally every day. It will all be worth it when this little girl is here though!

    Overall, I am feeling great! My BP, urine analysis, and weight gain were all great today. I am up 12 pounds now since finding out I was pregnant...I hope it doesn't get too much more than that! Oh, and she said I have NO signs of swelling! I couldn't wear my rings with DS after 30 weeks and they are still comfortably loose now at 38 week which makes me happy!

    I just want this show to get on the road in the next week or so...but I am having NO symptoms of labor starting any time soon, so I wont get my hopes up! We are going to start walking hard core tonight to get things moving hopefully! I'd love to hear about any other natural inductions that I could start doing soon!

    I am so sorry that you ob felt he had the right to do that w/o your consent, completely violating! Yay for a plan for the GBS, I hope things kick into gear for you soon!

    Katie -thanks for that site! I was googling "natural induction methods" when I got on here and saw you had posted that! I have been doing the accupressure things for a few minutes now and I had a pretty good "tightening" just now....it says within 48 hours it should work if it's going to!!

    unfortunately nothing new today! I sept like a baby last night though so I am well rested if something were to happen! I have a chiropractor appointment today, so I am hoping something he does will help! Last night while laying in bed I realized if I pushed on her bum I felt TONS of pressure down in my pelvis...I wonder if that is a bad idea to do that? I am really hoping she comes soon....DH leaves next Wed for his 2 day trip and I am getting nervous! Dh keeps reminding me that DTD is a good way to get things started, so we gave that a try (TMI) but still nothing. I did have one really good "tightening" after the accupressure, but nothing after that. I think I will repeat doing it nightly just for kicks!

    Caleb seems to be pretty oblivious to the whole idea that we are going to have another baby around here soon. He say's "baby" and "Hallie" and will point to and kiss my tummy when saying either of those, but I'm not sure that he gets it still! He has been super cuddly lately though and wont let anyone but me comfort him if he gets hurt...SO maybe he knows something is up.
    I put the baby mobile up in the crib today just to make sure I wasn't missing any pieces, and Caleb freaked about me not letting him in the crib to play with it. I told him it was baby Hallie's but, still he has no idea really who she is so he just got upset.

    I found out my mom has bought her plane ticket for next Friday to come down and be here for 2 weeks! I am so excited! I just hope Hallie doesn't wait for her to get here...My mom would love it if she did and I would love her to be here..but I am in no mood to wait that long!
