I have a good friend for whom it never did anything, either. No poop at all.

I've been meaning to post a for PGinthe612. I know how bad it feels to be under the dead-baby-speech pressure. Here's hoping you don't have to go through that.

Hey everyone - just wanted to say, I'm still here.
Feeling a lot less emotionally vulnerable to outside influences of negative birth outcomes.
Also haven't had any recent days of intense prodromal labor, which was pretty hellish mentally.

I am 41wks 5days, or so. Still feel as if I'm supposed to be pregnant, and though am embracing and accepting contractions, I am not considering induction at this point. Maybe sex to encourage things along, but nothing too invasive yet (though sex brings on crazyintense contractions - even without orgasm.)
DS was medically (arom,pit) induced at 41wks3days, and was still coated with quite a bit of vernix (even at 10lbs.) My big babies just need to cook longer, I guess.

Baby will pick his own birthday, and if he's not ready to be here - then so be it. I can be patient. (rinse&repeat, rinse&repeat)

My pelvic bone is done though. Standing and walking is so difficult. I went for a mild 'walk' through homedepot yesterday, and am wondering if I overdid it. Picking up toys/newspapers/toddler snacks is a complete joke. My house is a mess.

Someone ought to give my DP the memo that its time for him to put on his game face, and take over more of the housework. Oh, and not to invite friends over without talking to me first.

Kat. I was actually commenting earlier that according to Murphy's Law, this baby will be coming today since my house is TRASHED, there is no food here, and I got into a huge fight with DH this morning.

With the whole uncertainty about whether or not my water is broken, there is no sex going on here, which totally sucks. I think I would feel so much less stressed if we could just go at it. :

thats what *i* keep thinking, with the house a mess, i should go into labor at any minute! fortunately the freezer is stocked with 3 kinds of soup and tons of other foods. perhaps we need to eat all the food before i'll go into labor. but that'd screw up all the prep i did for going into labor. argh.

castor oil tonight! (1 TBSP at bedtime) i hope it works!!!!!!

Thanks. I really do appreciate the sympathy. I am going to request that they use the term "fetal demise" if it comes up tomorrow. Hopefully that will disarm them somewhat.

Castor oil update: Took 3T in a glass of OJ with some baking soda about 3 hours ago, then took a bath. Have had diarrhea 3-4X so far. Not pleasant, but not the worst thing I have ever experienced, either. I am drinking tons of water and peppermint tea (to stave off the nausea, hopefully). Think I'll try to nap now and hope that the diarrhea is done and the contractions are going to begin!

I also had more baby cork fall out after my bath. YAY!

Aww, I have a stalker.

Well, I lost a chunk of mucous the size of a golf ball this afternoon. Is that a medium size? Large? I don't know because my first birth was a failed induction & I never lost any mucous.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Ok, so my midwives just called. When they were here on Monday, I did the GBS test because my water had broken and in case I ended up in the hospital I wanted a big fat NEGATIVE in my file. I was negative with both boys. Well, I'm positive. Which means nothing really, except that my water may or may not be broken right now and if it is, it has been for 5 days. I'm thinking about trying blue/black cohosh tonight. (@Q)U&$(*Q#&%*QW&#U%(*Q#U$!

Gah, starry! I'm so sorry. What an irritating addition to your already frustrating situation.

I hope that whatever gentle induction techniques you try WORK! And SOON!

Good luck, all you mamas! I've got my pompoms out and my cheerleading skirt on and I'm doing high kicks for good deliveries.
Mrs. Lizzardbits, you get so much nookie. Have I ever mentioned that? I think it's great. When I'm all healed up I'm going to make it a goal to get as much nookie as your and your British husband.

Jen, you crack me up!!! It hurts to laugh right now because I feel it ALLL in my cervix. I am a bit worried about how it is going to be post-partum, because Hubby and I are *ahem* highly sexual people. I am hoping for a quick lochia flow and no tears so I can heal as quickly as I did when I had my other two kids. Heck, *I* errrm "attacked" my eldest's father before my son was even 2 weeks old because I n.e.e.d.e.d a big ol' *O*!! Oy! I am so naughty!

...anyway, I am still having intense contractions about every 10 minutes, for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes long. Some are closer together and some are further apart. There is no real set pattern HOWEVER (my thread of hope) these are strong enough that it is hard to talk at all during one, especially the peak of one, and my BH contrax were never like that.

It is midnight here, and Hubby and I are tired, so we are going to go to bed. I hope that these don't peter out, because I have noticed that they tend to be a bit more regular when I am standing or sitting straight up. Please please please let THIS be IT!!!!

I'm still here at 40 weeks, 5 days!! No signs of labor yet. I've been having my usual evening Braxton-hicks, but that's it. I am actually glad though that the baby is still cooking because it's giving my body is getting a chance to get over this cold I came down with a few days ago. I've been taking lots of vitamins and getting a lot of rest, which has helped a lot!!

Good luck and lots of ELVs to everyone!!
