    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

    Default 41w 2d

    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:

    - S&S
    - Castor Oil
    - DTD
    - "O"ing
    - Nipple Stim
    - Walking
    - EPO
    - 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.

    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!

    One acupressure point is in the webbing between your thumb and forefinger. Just rub it with your other hand. However, like nipple stimulation, it really only works to encourage contractions that are already happening. The other acupressure point I know of is on your cervix, so I don't think you'll want to do anything with that.

    Sounds like one stubborn babe! I've also heard pineapple helps, and eggplant parm because of the oregano and other spices, so I would think any italian dish might do the trick. Maybe Labour Day will be lucky for you and end up being your labour day.

    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.
