Labor- maybe?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I started having pretty good contractions while watching a movie last night. (Pirate Radio was great, btw!) Went to bed and had them on and off all night- woke this morning to a severe backache, got up and walked, decided to make a peach pie, and now they're pretty mellow. I still have a slight backache, but the contractions don't hurt at all.
Any suggestions on ways to keep this going? I'm 40 weeks on Sunday and I want to meet this kid! DH and I have been lovemaking frequently, and I plan on a long walk with my dog today. I don't have any evening primrose or castor oil, but I do need to go to the co-op today so I could get some.
Spicy food is kind of out as it gives me instant and viscous heartburn.

Cook with Basil and oregano. Nipple stimulation. Prayer...and baby coaxing. Relax let the baby know it is time and you are ready. Walk on a curb...one foot on the curb one foot in the gutter. Do the twist/belly rotations. Just some things I have heard. Good luck.

And keep moving... walking, dancing, whatever! Maybe drink some strong red raspberry leaf tea to help settle things in a pattern, or just for the sheer enjoyment of it! Good luck!

Sounds like me the last couple of nights. They start up every night and then just turn to cramps and discomfort/back pain mostly during the day. I hope it doesn't last too long for you!
