I haven't yet rolled over to the July Due Date Club, but am seriuoly thinking about it! I am interested to know if there are are were any other moms that are approaching week 43. I am nearing week 43 and have given up. My 7 week ultasound had given us a EDD of 6/27/07, which is apparently the most accurate ultrasound.

Here is what I have been doing since I am so past due:

Ultrasounds 2 times a week to check placenta and fluid levels- The ultrasound tech says my placenta is one of a 34 weeker and I have great fluid levels.

Kick Counts- Which I find pointless, the baby is sooo active

Cohosh- Black and Blue mixed with Birth and Ginger root, taking 1 dropper full every hour for up to 8 hours. I have been doing that for 2 days.

Acupuncture- I have had two sessions and one left- she for sure thought I was having my baby this weekend.

Chiropractic- Twice a week

Red Rasberry Leaf Tea- As much as I can drink

Sex- Lots of it-not that I really want it at this point


I have yet to try carto oil, which I was off to the store to buy this morning when I went to use the restroom and had a huge glob of very bloody show! I have had this since tuesday but today was the bloodist. I called my midwife (which I am so thankful for, she is letting me go as long as it is safe) Seh said to give my body a rest of cohosh and castro.

I keep hoping today is the day. I have been waking up having to do ballon breathing through rushses every night for the last week

Any other suggestions or mamas experiencing the same thing?

You were as far a long as I am! My contractions have slowed, so I am hoping that this is the calm before the storm I will start up on B&B Cohosh again tomorrow-thanks for the inspiration!
