I want to have this baby today!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish there was some way to do it. Sad Jogging? We DTD last night after my membranes were stripped. If only DH knew how to stretch out my cervix. Did I really just say that? I am disgusting! He keeps asking me if I lost my plug, and I do not want to tell him, incase we still need to DTD and it grosses him out. LOL!

Krista (kridda) on the Jan '12 board has a concoction from her midwife that guarantees labor....
Hit her up through pm.

I have been thinking about going to the gym to get on the eliptical, but DH gets home so late I'm always way too tired. I really think it would help him drop more. You could start using evening primrose oil, its full of prostaglandins. You insert it at night before bed, it helps ripen the cervix.

Castor oil and DTD are both way off my list haha

We DTD and I pumped 2 days ago....no dice. I did however pump 2 oz of colostrum LOL I felt a little guilty dumping it but I have more.

I have had some good contractions this evening......they just won't get regular. They are getting more painful but not full blown labor pain Sad

I wish I had advice for you but both my babies came early! I hear eating a pineapple can sometimes induce labor??!!! Sounds yummy even if it doesn't work. Smile

I'm full term next weekend and that's also DH's company Christmas party. I plan to eat tons of spicy food, walk all over the hotel, dance, and DTD as much as possible while we are there. I love that we get one hotel stay a year if nothing else. I told him I may be in bed most of the time and he can come visit between breaks in the party. LOL

I just went for a walk. I told Ed he has to dtd w/ me EVERY night even if I don't want to....I think he thinks I'm kidding. =/ lol, I'm not =l

Last night we both kind of dozed & I reminded him that "he hadn't made his semen deposit." Okay, I know that sounds really bad, sorry. 8-l But he finally did & said that he felt so used. I confirmed w/ him that he was being used. lmao...

LOL, DH told me I was being weird and wondered why I did not "finish", ummm that would be the contractions every 4 min even during sex. LOL! I asked him what I was doing weird, he said I lifted my leg slow.....OK. I call it mercy sex at this point. It is still fun, just sort of awkward. And they can suck it up just enjoy it now, because after it is so bad for a while!

I LOVE dtd w/ ed. It's unreal....I just feel so beached whale, uncoordinated & awkward now so it's idk, weird. I'm like you Joy. Ed was trying to please me & I just told him to work on himself. He hates that.

what???? Not sure what you are talking about...

UGHHHHH, I want to deliver.

Yes, DH is unhappy if I am not with him in it. Take care of yourself usually means we will not be doing it. He is not cool with that. Usually, right now is different. got to give it another shot tonight. Wink

Oh no, I didn't mean that. I never say that to Ed. I like it too much. I'm like krystal, I am usually the one all over him, but for delivery purposes I am definitely using him. Smile lol

Oh, me, too! I am not saying stuff right. I always like it! ALWAYS! Not sure how I am miscommunicating. I am just very preoccupied but these ridiculous contractions. They stopped for a few hours but they are starting up again....BLAH!

Yep. I think tried nearly everything. Sex, fresh pineapple(it was super yummy), red raspberry leaf tea, more sex, walking, bouncing, and I think I'm just getting tired. So I'm trying the opposite.

I don't think it would regenerate w/ you this close to your edd. I think it only regenerates when you lose it way early. Idk, could be wrong...

All of the above.... You could "take a tub...for a walk, crying." Smile wow, I'm a real smart a**. lol

Are you all ready for the hospital? About.com has this good list of things to do while waiting for your labor to progress at home.

Do you own a trampoline? J/K

Maybe try DTD...may not sound fun but may help. If you finish the contractions may pick up too. Smile
