Thanks for the info, abiyhayil.

gloomy.gif <------------ How I feel today.

 

My mother came from out of state to help me out but ended up leaving before I have the baby because of some ridiculous drama infused reasons. So now there will be no one to watch the kids at my home birth. Thankfully I have a wonderful doula and we'll manage to make everything work but this was definitely not how I envisioned things.

 

I'm having painful contractions off and on all day long, especially when I walk around, yet my cervix is still slammed shut.

 

I hope everyone else is having a better day than I am. Every time I log on here I hope to see news of more babies arriving. Who is next?

Probably not me.  40w6d today and trying to gear up for a castor oil induction on Sunday.  Yum.  That stinks about your mom :(  Do you have any friends you can ask to watch the kids?  Even a paid babysitter to come play with them if its during the day?

Sorry, Lauren, that stinks!  Upside...you do NOT want that kind of energy at your birth.  Maybe your cervix will open up now...  here's hoping the baby comes at night while the kiddos are sleeping.  Any friends you can enlist to help?

 

I'm 41w3d and had acupuncture and an adjustment today...hoping that will get things started for us!

 

Hang in there, momma!

Ugh, I had bad mama drama too. It's so hard, and so sad :(

 

It's entirely possible for the kids to miss the entire birth, as is what happened with me. But of course you can't plan on that happening <hug> Yay for doulas

Just drank my first castor oil smoothie. It is less disgusting with ice cream in it than just oj and castor oil which is what I did with DD. Praying for a baby TODAY!

Baby Siya arrived at 6:30 Tuesday morning.  She weighed 4lbs, 15oz.  She's super sweet and we love her to pieces.  Our homebirth was longer than I would have thought, but all went well.  Here's a picture of her.IMG_2425.JPG

Amelia June was born May 3rd at 5:34 am.  7lbs 14.5 oz.  I labored in the tub for two hours, then made it to the hospital by 1:15 a had an epi. to help with painful burning contractions, I've never felt my cervix feel like that!  I could still feel cx and that I needed to push though. She only took two pushes!
