I have always been told to eat Chinese Food to get labor going....not too sure where that folklore stems from Maybe it's the tummy upsets from the MSG getting the bowels going...
...and the sex I mentioned....I do know that the progesterone in your mans semen can aid in the ripening of your cervix as well as the friction will naturally help too (although in hospital inductions I think they may still be using bovine progesterone )

Here's some dust in hoping you have an active night

Still thinking about you! Go baby go! I find it reassuring to read your play by play... Much peace and strength sent your way!

Oh my goodness, such fresh memories for me - that achiness and work of opening up. I think the best advice I ever heard was to focus on each contraction and not think too far ahead - and to realize that just because that's the pattern right now, doesn't mean it will be slow throughout. Your body is doing all that it needs to do and SOON you'll be holding your baby in your arms. How amazing and exciting is that?!!

I loved slow dancing with dh to relaxing music (often Indigo Girls), and I have to say if you can stand it at all, sex really speeds things up if that's what you feel you want to do! Best of luck, and can't wait to hear your exciting news! Babies are so exciting

I've been way out of the loop the last couple of days so here I come back to find Kirsten in labour! Gooooooooo K!!!

I hope the lack of posts since last night means things happened over night, or at least you got some moderate amount of sleep.

Blessings and great vibes to you!!

I thought it was pig prostaglandin in cervadil.

I hope all is well and that you are holding that baby in your arms soon (or already!)

twinangels04- Ummmm, not sure. The last time I asked my mw it was bovine...but that was years ago


Hoping you had another active night Kristen......I think were all assuming your sparseness at the computer means you are VERY pre-occupied with something else.....
or, you're getting lot's of which is also super!
