Spicy foods, nipple stimulation and castor oil (if you're really desperate!).
I had an appointment today and totally shocked myself by asking them to strip my membranes. I wasn't even going to ask to be checked, let alone have them strip my membranes but I. Am. Done! So, in a moment of desperation, I asked (well, begged is more like it) She said I was about 1 cm dilated so she did what she called a "very aggressive strip". It hurt like a son of a gun. She said she was able to stretch me to "2ish". Whatever. Just get the baby out. LOL! That was late this morning and I've had semi-regular contractions since then, but they're all over the map. Anywhere between 8-20 minutes apart. I was having contractions before the strip so I don't know whether to contribute anything to what she did or whether it's just a coincidence. In any event, I would be thrilled to have this baby over the weekend. I've already made it much further than any of us thought I would (my bp is still shockingly low and no protein in the urine! YAY!).
If I do make it to this next week then I have to start twice weekly doctor visits with being hooked up to monitors both times. I wouldn't mind avoiding that ;)
