still here...due on the 28th according to the midwife, the 31st according to the u/s.
everyone is coming on weds...
I feel like its my fault somehow I can't get labor going. I have done the castor oil, the cohoshes, walking..walking..,primrose oil, sex, nipple stimulation.... I am dialated to 4 now and 80-90% thinned out
last night the contractions were 5 minutes apart and lasted 45 sec- over a minute....much the same story everynight for the last 2 weeks...then after about 3-4 hours..they fizzle away and nothing.
Yesterday, dh put on soft music, got a babysitter, gave me a full body massage for like 2 hours!
...did the primrose..everything... and then, off to work he had to go today..a bit bummed about it.
(fyi- to anyone considering castor oil, I have had it strait, in OJ and shaken in root beer, and root beer is the way to go)
Although, considering the aftermath...I would rather go to the hospital to be induced than try castor oil again
