Last night I was up at about 3 am and considered logging on here but I knew that I would never get back to sleep after I did so I layed down and watched "Howls Moving Castle". I love that movie, love it!!
I couldnt sleep because my lower back hurt so bad. I did get a nap after my son Jupiter got offf to school.
I went to see my MW this morning and we discussed the weather since its going to get scary cold and snow a bit and then on friday its supposed to snow more and she said that the during the last snow it took her 2 and a half hours to get into town. I would be fine having this baby on my own, however I would be even better if my dp was here with me and even more at ease if my mw was sleeping at her office in town when I call to have her come over.
So she stripped my membranes today and inserted some evening primrose oil and I called my dp to come on up. Poor guy he is driving 7 hours on about 2 hours of sleep.
I feel bad but its the babies fault right!! I just cant put it off any longer, not with all the signs pointing at baby coming soon.
My mw and I agreed that we would try pretty non invasive stuff first and if its not working well its just not working and we would have to wait either way. I am 40 weeks 2 days and 4 cm dilated and 50-60 % effaced. I have been having contractions that are getting progressively more painful so I think today or tomarrow might be the day!!!
I know that somone here talked about castor oil but I cant remember who it was. What were your experiences with it? We talked about trying that in the morning and stripping membranes again and dtd with dp when he gets here.
Anyways, it sounds like there are a few of us that are gonna have babies today or tomarrow!! ELV and happy nursing vibes to all!!!
