Yeah, tell me about it. We've had people calling/emailing wanting to know where the baby is for the last entire month.
Luckily hubby usually gets the phone so I didn't get to say "Why, my uterus of course!"
Had a midwife appt today (totally not a regular office day/visit, they just know how desperate I am now), swept my membranes, put something on my cervix (not evening primrose oil, but it has the same initials)
, and I'm going to try blue and black cohosh and false unicorn later this afternoon after the other midwife gets a nap (she was up all night at a labor/delivery)
. And we'll see what happens from there.
But apparently not only do I have the uterus of steel and cervix of Ft. Knox, but nipples of steel as well. Because the count of stuff we've already tried? DTD, eggplant parmesan, gardening/weeding until my hips barely move and I hobble hunch-backed into the house (got about 4-5 hours of contractions out of those)
, castor oil (contractions that led nowhere, but didn't even really get diarrhea until the next day - just had a *really* smooth bm during that 4-hour contraction session)
, walking (well, waddling), nipple stimulation via nursing the 2yo every other morning and my ever-handy breast pump, and something else. *sigh*
