Didn't see a thread yet, so I figured I'd start it today. TGIF! How's everyone doing? Any big plans for the weekend?
I'm 40+4, exhausted and ready to have this baby already! My midwife stripped my membranes for the second time in a week yesterday, got blood this time, then we ate a spicy lunch, walked for hours, had a spicy dinner, but only a random contraction here and there; nothing regular or super hard. I'm admittedly very frustrated, and we're considering breaking out the castor oil tomorrow. (Not something I'm looking forward to, but having already tried sex, black and blue cohosh has been going on for over a week, nipple stimulation, pineapple, EPO, RRL tea, two rounds of membrane stripping, walking, birthing ball bouncing...I'm just over this! I've only ever had medical inductions, one for a postdate baby, and I was SO looking forward to a homebirth this time around, so if castor oil is what it takes, then that's what it takes.)
ETA: Within half an hour of posting this, I lost my mucous plug. Hopefully a sign of more action to come!
