Ugh, Taryn237! That sounds awful... I haven't tried the castor oil before, but I've heard that can happen. Maybe if you hang on another day or so, you'll have a Christmas baby, which would also get you out of your family obligations for the day!
I don't have a lot of things going on for the holidays, but I was fully prepared to skip everything because I'd be adjusting to life with a newborn. The reality that I might still be pregnant is starting to hit, which means I may have to plan on showing up and bringing gifts (which I also decided to skip out on this year!) If I'm still pregnant tomorrow, I'm going to have to join the other crazy, last-minute shoppers and brave the stores with my giant, waddling body, grabbing whatever's left on the shelves...
Going to acupuncture today. Maybe that will help...
I'm really not hoping she waits until after Christmas. I don't think I could enjoy myself anyway, and the kids are already expecting me not to be there. I'll be 42 weeks on the 26th, and the 27th I'd have to go in for my pre-op appointment for my scheduled c-section. I absolutely, 100%, do not want to go to that appointment.
Well, acupuncture was certainly interesting! I definitely feel more tight/crampy tonight than I have in a while. No contractions, but the baby has been very active all day long. She left a couple of magnets attached to some pressure points to keep working. And I scheduled another session on Thursday. I definitely feel like it helped do something... just not sure exactly what yet! Have any of you tried it?
Contractions again for a couple hours last night but they haven't lasted. I'm dreading my midwife appointment tomorrow. After the failed induction last week I'm not very happy with my one midwife. And DH admitted that he also thought it was a bad idea. It stinks that both of us were having the same feeling but didn't speak up.
