41 weeks 4 days
Flowers - I have my "make a plan" appointment today as well. We must have close due dates. Also, I know several people who have had a positive experience with accupuncture as labor inducement. I don't think I have time to do it, as my last day to be in *active* labor is Monday. After that, it's off to the hospital I go!
Mucous plug still coming out slowly. Contrax coming, pretty irregular. More or less 10 minutes apart, but when I start to time them, they tend to slow down... Plus, although they last up to about 50 - 55 seconds, they don't feel that painful. I've been sleeping through them without a problem, so I'm not sure if they're doing much.
I was having them all day yesterday, and I noticed that they picked up the pace a little when I was walking around the house, so I went for a nice 30 minute walk, and the contrax died down during the walk, and then went away completely after the walk for about an hour and a half! Ugh! When they came back, they were pretty much doing the same thing, kinda sorta ten minutes apart.
I was doing the cohash all day yesterday. Today I think is castor oil day. My mw only has you do only one oz. every 4 hours (I think), so hopefully that won't be so bad.
I'm getting my first internal exam in three weeks today. Back in week 39, I was 50% effaced, fingertip dialated. Here's hoping all this B-H and contrax have done *something* since then...
Going to take my mind off all this with a funny book I bought the other day:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...097537-4722429
Good luck to you ladies - there are so few of us still-pregnant sept. mamas left...
