We have really crappy insurance, so if I end up needing a hospital induction, we'll be out A LOT of money. Not sure if the homebirth midwife reimburses us too much (if anything) if we end up having to have a hospital birth. So, that is a huge concern for us.
Love and support to all y'all! I'm really rooting for you, Crafty, AustinMom, and bohemama. Your bodies can do this! Hang in there!
Soooo I'm 40+6 today. I've stopped checking my e-mail and facebook. I just had a cup of cumin tea, we'll see if that does anything. It's just a tsp of cumin and 6 oz of water with a cube of raw potato in the bottom. I read about it here. I'm also considering trying goldenseal, since that's something my midwife recommended for people who forgo GBS testing anyway. I'm in a very herby mood today, apparently. I'm also thinking about doing a cleansing enema followed by a RRL tea enema, but that might just be going overboard.
I think I'm really ramping up the trying to get things going because I don't want to have to go to my 41 week appointment tomorrow, which is just silly. My baby knows how and when to be born, and I am lovingly patient. Babies are born on their birthdays, etc. Relax, me. Everything is fine.
