So I took that Caster Oil the other week.....

And had my baby!

Brianne Kristine O
born December 7th at 3:20am
9lbs even, 20.5 inches

I've sort of dropped off the face of the earth since then, living in my snuggly little baby bubble. My mom came to help me and she just left today so I guess I'm ready to get back to whatever our new normal is going to be. Will write up the birth story once I've caught up with reading all that's been going on with everyone else.

Last picture pregnant - mid-contraction!

Congrats on your sweet baby! I have to ask, did the castor oil make you miserable?? I was desperate to get things going with my 2nd but everyone scared me away from trying it.

It wasn't too bad. I did a half dose... and I'm glad I only did half. It does totally clear you out and there is a crampiness that comes with it. But honestly, I was already 3 cm and having contractions which I why I think it worked.... I was just trying to make sure that the contractions continued.
