I supposed it might be my turn to start a new thread! :)
The last thread was so great, everyone sharing absolutely excellent wisdom about body images and perceptions as well as insights into due dates and how we really feel about them - I know personally today marks exactly one month until my due date, so it's certainly on my mind! :)
Maybe if people want to, they could share what specifically, if anything, they're doing for labor prep? I personally am drinking Traditional Medicinals Pregnancy Tea (a red raspberry leaf tea with some other yummy additions), about 2 cups daily, and I've started taking 1000mg of evening primrose oil a night. I'm not trying to induce labor, but I know that the tea is a great uterine strengthener and the EPO will help soften my cervix and prepare it without dilating it, so between the two, I'm hoping to potentially have a shorter labor. Labor wise, I'm also hunting for good music to take to the hospital with me and buying little things I find at the store like back massagers or tennis balls, things like that. I should probably pick up my own yoga ball, too.
Anyone else? Any tips from all you lovely been there, done that mamas for us lost first timers? Lol.
