Wow you are 41 weeks already Alison? He must be super comfy in there. Cant wait to hear your birth story.

Hmmmm.....with some quick facebook snooping I've deduced that Allison is having that baby! Or at least I think she is. Emily is having early morning snuggles with her only nephew, and Jordan made a comment about the blue moon.
Can't wait to hear some news!
Jordan, you've been busy this week!
Hahaha Amber! Sister sleepover
I was having some good contractions last night so Emily and Jordan came out and stayed over - just in case. No baby yet
I have been trying to get things going. I've been getting regular contractions, yesterday for the majority of the day my contrax were coming 6minutes apart and they were good and strong. I thought for sure we were getting a baby last night. But no such luck...
Here's what I've been trying to get labour started/kicked into high gear:
- Castor Oil
- Nipple Stim
- Rolling on my ball
- Raspberry Leaf Tea
- Spicy Food
- Walking my stairs
This baby is just taking it's time and letting me know early that it can't be bossed around. Hahaha! Currently I'm 41+2. I'm trying to keep my spirits up, but with all this "false" labour it sure is hard.
My sister, Jordan, has stayed over at my house the past 2 nights, and one of those nights I had my sister, Emily, here as well. I feel badly keeping them from their families for all my maybe-labouring. Selfishly I like having them here, but I know that at some point they have to go home to their families. They can't stay with me forever in hopes that maybe a baby will be the result of irritating early labour.
I had a great night sleep last night. I hope to get lots of snuggles in with my little guy today just in case this baby eventually decides to show up.
Buy tickets to an important event tonight....

Ugh, it sounds like you're trying most of the things on my list. I do have accupressure written down too, I found info about specific pressure points on the web somewhere. I'll look for them again! And eating lots of natural black licorice is said to do the same as castor oil, but it tastes better (if you like black lic...) And, I read somewhere that if you eat like 7 fresh pineapples, that can help too! I think I'd get soooo sick before I could eat 5!

Sounds like you are doing all you can to get things started. He/she is just too cozy in there. Not much longer at all though.
