I'm here! 40 weeks on the nose today. Last night I felt a few contractions after a major acupuncture session, good walk and garden work. This morning, I'm still pretty crampy.
I keep hoping for a Sunday babe(tomorrow is a b-day party of one of DS's good friends and also DS's actual birthday). Tomorrow is a full moon with a partial lunar eclipse. I'm thinking a good time to go into labor and then have the babe in the wee hours of Sunday
. Ah, if they would only do it as we plan, right
Castor Oil will only work if you are on the cusp, in my opinion. I did it last time, but only when I was 42+3. I wouldn't try it any earlier than 42 weeks, personally, if at all. It totally didn't work for me.
I'm a huge fan of acupuncture with someone who specializes in womens/pregancy health. Also chiro can help make sure the hips are all lined up right to get the babe in the right position to fall down, put pressure on that cervix and get things started.
Good luck, ladies!!! May the full moon help us all!!!!
