I started thinking about this today as a lot of us are getting closer and closer!
I used evening primrose oil last time with Luke. It is a natural source of prostaglandins that help "ripen" the cervix. It's supposed to aid in dilatation and softening of the cervix when labor begins. You can start taking it orally at 34 weeks (I never did that, bleck!) At 36 weeks you can insert it vaginally at night before you go to bed. The capsule will dissolve and release the oil around your cervix. You will want to wear a panty liner It will not cause labor, it just supposed to make your cervix more agreeable so to speak when labor begins. I was fully dilated after 9 hours of labor. I don't know whether it helped or not, but it can't hurt!
just be sure to mention it to your doc/midwife first!
anyone else plan on doing/taking/drinking anything?
