Natalie - sending you lots of good 'move on down, baby' vibes, and hoping that yes, your next post is a baby announcement!
I used the B&B tincture in my 2nd labor (27 hours active, after 3 days off/on). I was stuck at 6 cm for about 5-6 hours due to bad positioning, & stress from my moms. DH ended up kicking out the moms (my mother came back later without her wife, and was willing to be supportive to be there), started taking tincture, and had my water broken at about the 5 hour mark. So it's hard to know which thing really kicked up the labor, but he was born a few hours later. Water breaking can have the same intensifying effect as the cohosh.
Kelly, I apparently have no mucous or plug. You must have stolen mine ;) Seriously with THREE WEEKS of prodromal I have not had a DROP of discharge. I am starting to worry baby is in a bad position or something, though the MW says he is engaged really well.... I'll keep my fingers crossed for that Christmas Eve baby for you!
Rae - the puke/pee combo.... my favorite :( So sorry you are having THAT go on. First trimester I kept a towel on the bathroom floor & just started taking my pants off every time I had to throw up. Lovely image, I know....
Chica - I'm glad you are keeping busy. That's so important at this stage!
Had another restless night of contractions until about 3am with a tiny bit of fitful sleep. I feel bad for DP - he's not getting any rest either. I've offered to sleep elsewhere but he wants me with him. At least he only has a couple of jobs (he's a contractor) going right now that are very flexible, so he isn't having to get up early and race out in the mornings. I think he's afraid to lave me alone for 2 minutes, worried I'll have the baby without him. It is very nice to have the company, though!
