She is in labor and baby is still posterior, but her hubby is with her and she is in good spirits. I will update as I hear more info. I hope I am doing this right, feel free to let me know if I should be doing things differently.

Oh, I hope that baby turns! I'm glad she's got her husband with her, though. And yes, you're doing this perfectly! (I'm a July co-clubber, so I've seen lots of updates).

Oh my goodness! I was just thinking today that it's less than two weeks until August 1st, so surely one of us would be having her baby soon!

Good luck, MommaKitten21!!!

How exciting! I can't wait to hear the news!

Sorry, no big news here, just wanted to share a message I just sent MommaKitten21 on behalf of our DDC:

Hey there! I'm not sure if you're up to checking your messages, but I figured I would let you know there are a lot of people sending positive vibes your way. ALl are hoping baby is in optimal position for delivery and that you're tolerating labor well. Keep me (us) updated as you feel up to it. Keep up the good work and good luck!

MommaKitten21 update: She is really appreciative of the support she has been getting from our DDC and others on mothering.com. She is going to try some hormones the midwife is bringing to speed dilation as she isn't progressing rapidly at this point, but the midwife is expecting a baby tonight or in the morning! The baby may have an arm next to his/her head which could be making things more difficult. She is still so happy that her DH is by her side and her spirits are up.

Yay!!! I'm so happy for her that her DH is there with her. No real rush now since if I remember correctly he'll be there for about 5 days. How wonderful he made it.

MommaKitten21 - positive labor thoughts and vibes being sent your way. Hang in there, you can do it!!!

Thanks for keeping us updated, SteelerMom.

Unfortunately, labor seems to have stalled and MommaKitten21 is understandably frustrated. She really wants to have this baby while her husband is home. I sent her a message saying we were all sending positive thoughts her way.

It just seems like our DDC babies are stubborn as stubborn can be!!

Lots of activity but nothing to show ughh!


We went to the state park and went hiking today... and I was running throughout it!! We are having sex like crazy, and I am on every hormone known to man to help with things!

I have even started jumping up and down.... I'm about to go nuts

DH leaves early Friday.... so I seriously am feeling the pressure of only 4 days.... this has got to happen!! Any ideas, ladies? My issue is dilation.... cervix is perfect, angle is perfect, baby turned.... just not dilating anymore.

Oh, and we have tried castor oil twice so far... and nothing with that either!
