I took 2 tblsp of CO at 3pm yesterday and 2 more at 9pm. I was a little miffed that it didn't make me poo (sorry TMI) at all but I did start having irregular mildly painful contractions last night. I went to sleep at the petered out but this morning at 6:30 they started back up again. Water broke at 7 and my contractions are coming every 4 minutes now. Hubby just ran out to replace the hose that just exploded on him while trying to fill the birth tub and my 6 yr old DS is running around helping and whisphering "The babys coming today" over and over. It sure is exciting. 12 days post due and its finally happening. ::

Thanks for updating us!

And YAY!!!!!:You sound great, how exciting! I'm so glad the CO didn't make you ill. You got off easy!

I hope your labor starts a domino effect around here! We need it!

Ooo, it is exciting. Pretty cool that the CO worked for you and didn't seem to have any side-effects.
