About 3:30 am I had a couple of painful contractions so I decided about 4am to take my herbal induce and since about 7:20am I've had contractions about 7 minutes apart.  I'm hoping it keeps ups.

 

*UPDATE*

 

Maggie Mae was born at 5:55pm on 9/11/11

 

9lbs 2oz. - guess ob was right to freak out a little bit.

 

Will update with birth story soon.

I think its Herbal Mountain Meadows, but I think you have to get it through a midwife.  I did not see it on their on-line store.
