I went and got arnica cream and tablets, just in case I need a little help with pain relief, and shephard's purse in case I hemmorhage, had some RRL tea and Eggplant Parmesan for dinner. Very sporatic contractions. No labor yet. Dang it! I'm 39 weeks today, the longest I've ever been pregnant. I wannnnaaaa have this kid noooooowwwwww. *whine* (in all honesty, since I've never gone past 8 days before my due date, I mentally set today as my due date, shouldn't have done that!)

Oh the plus side, the baby has turn from breech back to head down after just a few days breech

I'm losing my plug Shouldn't be much longer now, I lost my plug with 1 & 3 (2 was induced) the same day I delivered

On the negative side of this, my oldest 2 kids are being, for lack of a better phrase right now, obnoxious little brats. Well, mostly DD, and DS1 is reacting to her. Sigh. I hope they calm down and can chill, even in front of the TV, when I am in hard labor. Or maybe I'll get lucky and do the hard labor and birth after they're asleep.

Going nutty here....Still losing chunks of my plug, last night I had very painful ctx (painful because I was too tired to get up out of bed in a good position) every 10 minutes for a couple hours, then they stopped. Completely. I had DH stay home from work because I thought this was IT. ARGH! So we went for a "power walk", had some ctx 3-4 min apart as long as I was walking fast. They've stopped since I got home : We can't afford for DH to take another day off work, so I hope this baby comes today...but at this rate, it'll probably be a few days...*grumble* (i'm rather cranky today)

OH, I know that must be so frustrating!! It has to be soon now, though. Especially since you're still losing mucus. Maybe some good lovin' with dh could start things up?



More labor dust comin your way!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Labor is here, just going slow. Ctx are still sporatic and the baby seems to be in that wonderful spot for back/butt labor, so I'm moving around a LOT to keep from yelling so early in Working on moving him ala spinning babies and what feels right. I'll be around til I can't, being on the computer is helping relax me and keep in a nice safe comfortable zone (part of the problem with hospitals is I can't do what I normally do, ya know?)

ELV's to everyone else who needs them !!

I'm glad it worked for you. I ate eggplant parmesan every day for a week to no avail (with my last pregnancy).
