As you can see from my ticker, I am 12 days from my due date. I woke up at 2:30 this morning with lots of crampy contractions, called the midwife and the doula at 5:30 and they came by about 10...only 3cm and not in "real labour"! :badpc: :badpc: :badpc:

Send me some oxytocen-laced pixie dust! This is my second so I'm hoping it will pick back up tonight...I was so psyched up to have a baby TODAY! :confused3

Patience is not one of my better virtues... :rolleyes:

Thanks for all the pixie dust! As of this evening, I'm having pretty irregular contractions still and feeling a bit nauseous...we're going to try some, ahem, natural induction methods tonight and see if that will kick start things! :blush: :blush: :blush:

Hopefully I'll be posting pictures of baby within a few days!

Well, thanks for all the pixie dust! Nothing at all today. The doula said that she thought it would be soon. DH has taken the day off school which is nice and I have a midwife appt. this afternoon so we'll see if there's anything changed...

If you can drink it, mix castor oil and orange juice. It is an old natural induction method. It is not guaranteed to work but has a fair bit of success. Just be sure to get the approval of your healthcare provider first.

Hi everyone! :wave2:

Nothing yet! At the moment, the baby has the hiccups but that's about all. I held my friend's 3 day old baby for a few hours this afternoon hoping that might get my oxytocin going but no luck. Still working on the natural induction. I will let you all know! It's GOT to be withing the next week or so...DH's last day of school is tomorrow so it will be nice that he's done work for the summer when the baby comes.

Fingers CROSSED! :cheer2:

Still no baby...a few twinges this morning but I know better than to get my hopes up... :rolleyes:

I read somewhere that the best way to go into labour is to put on your best underwear so that your water will break and ruin them. Who the heck can still wear their best underwear when they're 39 weeks pregnant? :confused3 :confused3 :confused3 That's what I'd like to know! My best underwear are buried deep at the bottom of the drawer. If I can get into them before Christmas I'll be VERY happy with myself. :rotfl:

Will keep you all updated. Can't be long now... :dance3: :dance3:

Wow I am having flashbacks of my first pregnancy :rolleyes: My oldest DD ( who is now 7) was almost 2 weeks late. She was due Aug. 21st she came on Aug. 30th. It was one long hot Toronto summer in a house with no AC. I swear the Dr scared DD out by telling her she would be born ( induced) on her Mom's ( me ) birthday :guilty: The Dr told me at my appoit. on a Fri if she didn't come that weekend we where going to induce on Tuesday. Labour started Sunday AM and she was born that afternoon.
Good luck.
Nancy

P.S. The trick I have heard is to get greasy spicey foods or anthing to get the bowels moving . The cramping acting of the bowels will help get contractions going. Sorry to be so gross :confused3

Ok, this is eerily sounding like my first...although I don't really think now in hindsight it was real labour. I was due Jan 15, although I thought that date was calculated late, so I was begging and pleading to go before Jan 1. I didn't want my ds to have to wait the extra year to start school, or pay the extra year of daycare!!! My ob was even on call a few days at the end of the year and everything, but no.

Finally went into labour after my last appt where my ob kinda "helped things along" and I had time to go the 1/2 hr home, collect dh and go 1/2 hr back before the intense labour started (ok, qualify that...I have zero pain tolerance...my sister who was my nurse for 2 days after I had ds said I wasn't really in labour...yeah, whatever). So, long story short I end up having a c-section on Jan 15 at 8am. Connor comes out all wrinkly and his skin is peeling off like he's a burn victim. The doctor announces, "Well, I guess you were right, you were overdue...he's pretty overcooked!!".

Hope that the no news means there's news!!! Let us know!!!

For each of my pregnancies I had huge amounts of garlic for dinner and went into labour that night. (poor nurses on the other end of my 'breathing'!)

Your situation sounds like my second. My first was early, so of course that is what I 'expected' with the second. No such luck, the naughty little boy was late!

07-04-2006, 05:26 PM
Well....nothing yet but I did go to the midwife today and they did a "stretch and sweep"...with another one planned for Thursday, so we'll see. I'm a bit crampy and sore but no real change. I piled the Jalepenos on my hotdog at costco today! :crazy:

Hopefully within the next few days...we have to talk about induction and seeing an ob/gyn at 41 weeks on Thursday if I still haven't gone into labour. :sad2: :sad2:

Here's hoping... :surfweb:

Thanks for all the well-wishes! It cheers me up which is something for sure. At this point, I'm so grumpy I'm surprised the baby wants to be NEAR me, let alone in there. :rotfl:

Hi Beth I had a "stretch and sweep" with DD #2 ... It worked for me.
In fact Dr told me she did 3 that day and all 3 of us had our babies with in 24 hrs. ( It was a Wed. before a holiday weekend we all had our babies and where out of hospital before the weekend).
