Still here...41 + 6 days. Going for my second attempt at a stretch and sweep tomorrow. The first attempt was a no-go because my cervix was too closed yesterday. I have not been able to sleep very well because my mind is racing. Now that I have an induction plan for Thursday night, I'm having a bit of a freak out. I want to make the best decision for my baby, but it's so hard to figure out what that is! I should be out walking my butt off, but I've been laying on...

I also have Mother Ease one-sizes and Bum Genius pockets for later, as well as a couple of Apple Cheeks and Sandys. Can't wait to try them out!
Congratulations Octobermoon! I'm sorry to hear you had such a scary experience. Thank God everything turned out okay. You are one tough cookie for managing that drug free, pitocin induced labour!
Congrats! What a cutie!

All of the rumors on mec staining due to castor oil are just rumors. A review of the studies showed that there was no increase risk to mother or baby from taking castor oil on or after term.

I lost my homebirth as of this morning, and then freaked out when I realized I couldn't put any new images of birth in my head. I cried from 1 a.m. till dawn. But then I pulled myself together and came up with a list of questions for my midwife about the hospital birth, and found some peace....
