Aww Farren, I'm so glad you got a chance to talk things through with your dp and he actually listened to you!
Glad to have been of service, my dear!
And I, too, am in awe that you dtd 3 times in 24 hours!!!
I'm sorry for your sake, but it makes me feel better that it didn't produce a baby right away, because then I would've felt like I needed to try it, and I know my limitations!
Meta, it's called hibiclens. I can't remember the other name for it, because... I'm pregnant. Anyway, I douched with it before having ds, and they did draw blood cultures on him and monitor him a little more closely after he was born (vital signs every four hours until discharge), but he was fine. I was negative with dd and this one. Oh, it's also called chlorhexadine. And sorry the crotch is still itchy!
And starting labor with herbs and homeopathy? I'm so jealous!!!!! My labors are the same as yours, and the induction thing is always SO tempting, because otherwise I have to worry about everything so darn much. DH is really good at steering me away from the temptation, because he knows I'm not strong enough to resist when I get close to or beyond my due date. But that sounds like a super safe way to get things going, and if it fails, it fails.
Pomegranate, our EDD's are a day apart! Best of luck to us, huh?
Heather, sounds frustrating!
It can't go on forever, right? .....right...?
Catie, I'm so glad your day got better. And hurray for getting some alone time tomorrow!
AFM, dh and I went on a walk this afternoon for about an hour. It was beautiful. The sun was shining and it wasn't super cold, and we both agreed that we just needed to get out of the house and have a change of scenery. I only had 2 or 3 ctx the whole time, but I wasn't expecting it to throw me into labor, so that's fine. When we got home, ds went down for a nap and so did we. I slept for a couple of hours and then got up and finished getting dinner ready (I had a roast in the crock pot all day), and then dh got up just as we were sitting down to eat. We agreed that our moods were totally boosted by the exercise and sleep, so all's right with the world again for a while!
He also mounted the new mirror in our newly remodeled bathroom upstairs, so I can finally move all of my stuff back in there and start using it!
Tomorrow dh works, so I need baby to stay put. Then he's off for a couple of shifts, so then I'll want baby to come again, but he works again a few days after my due date (Sun), so then I'll need baby to stay put again!
I'd love to have the baby on the 11th. That was my dad's birthday, and I love and miss him so much...
Just throwing it out there, God....
Hoping to hear that Ashley had her lo!
