Yeah, I know it must be helping on some level. I am trying to retain some level of zen. have had contractions - still mild ones - yesterday and through the night, but at least I slept well. I need energy to deal with labor when it happens!
JJ: comments will be less until you are at this point (on, near, or past your DD) - then people will pepper you with questions and helpful hints about inducing on your own ;) The most creative one I've heard so far is to take a shot of white liquor and then jump off a stool. Haven't tried that one, but it sound fun!
Maybe they were thinking the possible caffiene in tea? can't be the chamomile itself . . .
on recalls: did you see they are recalling the Bumbo because idiots put it on chairs and elevated surfaces and it tips, causing head injuries? the fix? a better warning label. Now, I'm not a huge fan of the Bumbo (it's ugly for one thing) - we had a Bebe pod - similiar, but I like the material it's made out of better - and hardly used it. It was handy though, because we used it for feeding until we finally broke down and bought a high chair around 10 months or so. (we don't even have a table we eat at, so a high chair seemed silly at first).
Alot of recalls have more to do with people being stupid and not the product being defective. Like my Maclaren stroller. . . kids got their fingers pinched in the closing clasp. Why are your kids closing the stroller? *sigh*
So yeah, I'm still pregnant. Still really ready to NOT be. Everyone we run into tells us they really feel babe will be born this week. I truly hope they are right!
