the castor oil (which was only about a tablespoon... not the 2oz most say to take to induce... since i was taking it for constipation) was about 32 hours ago?

The contractions are still about 10 minutes apart and lasting like 50 seconds. they are pretty stable in that now... just very very slowly getting stronger.

Yay for getting stronger! Maybe they will pick up their pace here soon!

OOO! She is good!

I'd like to try again . Neither one of us were close, unless I go into labor and have baby withing the next 9.15 hours.

I am guessing 9-23 now.

I was so hopeful for a birthday baby.

Its only 8 in the morning but I already know I'm not going to have her today.

I know I could... logically...

Sooo How'd you do? Lila was born on 9/22 But they were talking induction around the 3rd. I'm convinced we would have had a section if I had gone for it. It took sooooo much willpower to say no to that. I've been emotionally done with this pregnancy since August!
