Appt tomorrow.....

I have my "39 week" appt tomorrow at 845 (I will be 38 +4). I am really hoping he will schedule my induction for Friday am.......if not Fri I have to convince him to wait til Tues. Mon am I have to take Kodey to the ortho (45 min away) to have his wires put on his braces. I would prefer Friday......well just because its sooner :-). Anyway I'm hoping to be more dialated this week so I know my body is progressing. I've been taking EPO for about 10 days.......am going walking with my friend this evening after kids are in bed....and if all else fails i bought castor oil to try to get things started BEFORE the induction.

Good luck! Hope the timing works out for you and you don't need much of an induction to get you going!

What will they do to induce you? My OB said she would consider induction if she thought she could start labor just by breaking my water at 39 weeks. I never had any luck with anything in the past. What is EPO again and did that or Castor oil really seem to help you in the past? I am just about to start trying stuff like that, I am feeling pretty desperate at the moment.

IDK exactly whay he is wanting to do to "start" my induction but I personally have no problem with pitocin soooooo.....I've had 2 inductions with pit in the past with no problems. EPO is Evening Primrose Oil......comes in a capsule (vitamin section). I take one capsule 3 times a day, it says you can also insert one twice a day next to your cervix but lets fade it I have no effing clue where mine is...lol. I only ever tried castor oil with my last (DS#4).......no it didn't work (didn't even cause the tummy issues like "the runs" that it is supposed to?) But what I've been reading is I may not have tried enough last time....so who knows.

I am hoping when he checks me tomorrow that the EPO and bouncing on the exercise ball and walking has made some progression....

I hope you can get your induction scheduled for when it's convenient for you and your kiddos!
