So my midwife's birth-partner came over to meet me and give me a second "hands-on" opinion about this baby. She also agrees that it's a 9-10+ pounder, which isn't a big deal, but we've all agreed that we can't let things go on without a little intervention.

I am 40 weeks tomorrow. She and I think I have extra fluid, which I had with my second. It means the baby isn't pushing on the cervix very much and so it's still a bit thick.

I started on internal evening primrose oil and tomorrow I will take the castor oil. If my cervix were more favorable, they may have considered breaking my water but in current conditions it seems I'll be trying the oil.

I am a little nervous about it but all of the conditions are good with the baby and to see her get gigantic and post dates may be more problematic.

I really want this homebirth.....

How big were your other LOs? Maybe it's hard for her to guesstimate weight with there being extra fluid. I'm hoping (for you) it's not a 10lb-er!

Keep us posted! I hope the CO works for you!

Did the castor oil. No problems. I have/had the #2 stuff going on but no pain or discomfort....or progressive contrax.

Doing cohosh thing again tonight and meeting with mw tomorrow. If my cervix is favorable and the head is down enough, they might break my water....let's hope.

I am still doing the internal EPO...
