The "D-Day"

Well, today's the official D-Day...and still no baby! At yesterday's weekly appointment, I was about 2.5-3 centimeters dilated and about 60% effaced. Not much different from the previous week's appointment, but hey, at least we're getting somewhere! :o) I was almost 4 centimeters and 80% effaced for almost a whole week when I had my Peanut, so I know to take things with a grain of salt this time!

I've tried many of the natural labor induction methods that you may have heard of, including drinking red raspberry leaf tea (drank an entire box within a week), taking evening primrose oil, walking, walking, and more walking...but not much is happening. Just goes to show that no matter what you do, nothing can change the birthday plans that God has in store! :o)

Have a happy Tuesday, and stay tuned (hopefully!) for a labor story!

There are other methods to try to get the baby to come out, but not sure if I should write them here. haha

Okay, I'm praying for you and thinking of you. Don't worry, it will come. And hopefully sooner than later. Hopefully I will NOT see you on Sunday.

i also thought of another method to get that little baby to arrive, but it's a little "x-rated"!

I just read what Ruth wrote and had to laugh - my OB told me the same thing with Isabella! She was too weeks late, so I feel your pain, girl. Hang in there, he will be out as soon as he is done cooking, LOL.... : )
