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.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
I started on internal evening primrose oil and tomorrow I will take the castor oil.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> 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.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
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!<br><br>
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.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
I am still doing the internal EPO...
