Still pregnant... my due date is tomorrow, I can't believe it.
I rubbed castor oil on my belly (I can't believe how thick the stuff is- no wonder it is gross to drink, it's hard to even rub around) twice last night and then put a warm towel over it. Nothing yet, but seems like it may need a few applications. Since it is cool and rainy today I figure I might as well keep doing it, the warm towel will be soothing at least!
Brought home the gorgeous rocking chair my dad made me last night, it looks way too nice for our house, haha. It's like, Ikea, Ikea, Ikea, amazing hand crafted walnut rocking chair.... Now we will need to rearrange the furniture to figure out where we want to put it. Hmmm.... maybe that will get things going! My grandma told me she went into labor at 34 weeks with my aunt after she moved her living room furniture around. None of that Ikea furniture is very heavy, though.
Well, I just can't be in labor while the girls are at school tomorrow. DD2 has been freaking out for 2 weeks that I would have the baby on her field trip to the aquarium, which of course I thought would NEVER happen 2 weeks ago. If she were to miss it I wouldn't feel THAT bad, we've been there a bunch of times and can go anytime, but it would definitely be a pain in the butt if I went into labor quickly while she was there. It's not close by, unlike the hospital and school, so it would be pretty inconvenient to send someone to get her.
Neuro- how bout you just send any spare labor vibes my way? Good luck keeping that baby in, really I wouldn't be too concerned. Could be your cervix just starting to open and efface, and as I and several other ladies around here can attest, that doesn't mean labor is anywhere near. Even for the first baby.
I've been managing my constipation by eating lots of citrus. Usually about 3- 4 oranges a day. I personally found it to work better than prune juice, which sadly did nothing for me. Good thing I really like citrus and it's in season!
