My real due date is today (although my midwives think its tomorrow because I decided to fudge the date of my last period to give me more time but for some reason I only added one day... can't for the life of me remember why)
I've been so happy that the baby didn't arrive early (our house has been under major construction and I was NOT ready for him) but now things have calmed down a bit and I'm really feeling ready. So what can I do to convince him to start getting ready? I mean I'd love for him to arrive in the next week or so. All I know about is walking and sex... any other suggestions? I can be patient and I'm fine with waiting longer but... my birthday is coming up on 10/13 and I'd LOVE to not share a birthday with my son if possible (I know, I know, how selfish am I?!)
Anyway are there other easy tricks that work to encourage things to start happening on their own? I've had lots of BH contractions (including contractions that came with lots of period-like cramps) but they come and go and I'm not even convinced that any other progress is happening. I had one exam at 39 weeks and cervix was closed and tight...
Any ideas? I'm definitely NOT at the castrol oil point yet!
