A friend of mine posted this on facebook. Go figure? Now where do I get dates??
That's what one of her other friends said, she was planning on making some bars and had a whole package of dates and she apparently just gave birth in the last week! lol She was "Why didn't you post this a month ago??"
I just thought it was interesting. Not like it'll hurt. I'm gonna hit the supermarket tomorrow and see if I can find some.
Woo hoo, I've got dates in the kitchen! Guess what I'm going to go snack on? Higher percentage of intact membranes? My membranes broke prior to both of my last births (the last one five weeks too early) and both those labours were much harder. My labour when my membranes remained intact right up to when the baby entered into the birth canal and I'd started pushing, was my easiest labour by far. I'm convinced it was due to intact membranes. How I wish I had seen this article weeks ago though. I seriously doubt I have four weeks left. I'd be willing to bet anything you'd like that I won't make it to my due date (I'm 36 weeks on Monday)--but I'd be happy to be proven wrong!!
