Bread: My sweetheart bakes no-knead bread for us pretty often. He's found that up to 25% of the flour can be whole wheat/spelt/rye/barley/etc. and at least 75% should be white wheat flour. Some mix-ins we've used are walnuts, olives, sundried tomatoes, rosemary and thyme.
A great idea: He's been unable to massage me properly because of me not being able to be on my tummy, and he came up with the idea of using my breast feeding pillow (I have the breast friend one) to lay on. It worked GREAT! I was able to lay down on my tummy!!! It looks like it might not be comfortable because the back support part is taller than the baby support part, but it works really well!
Help: I bet you can come up with a solution! If you had to, for safety, you could call a taxi to get all of you home? Then it would be just like if you went into labour at home? I was really fixating on how we are going to get to the birthing clinic- I really wanted my sweetheart to bike me there, but that would necessitate borrowing a trailer from someone and sweetheart's bike doesn't have a hitch on it so we would also have to borrow a bike, and since we can't know when we will need it we would have to borrow someone's bike and trailer for 5 weeks which is unreasonable, and sweetheart convinced me that a taxi just makes the most sense and is simplest :). I was feeling kind of horrified at the idea of being with a stranger during labor, but friends have assured me that at that point I won't care, and the taxi will be fine.
Yeeska: when your midwife noticed that your cervix was asymmetrically ripened and asked about sex, is it because where the semen comes in contact with the cervix it can be more ripened? Or was it an unrelated question because she just noticed traces of semen or your lubrication or whatever? I'm wondering if I should be trying to keep semen inside me longer (like when we were trying to get pregnant) to try and maximize its ripening effects rather than letting it just fall out, or if that's just me being ridiculous.
