At noon I get to go to my 39/40 week midwife appointment. I will be asking about their recommendations about caster oil...but heck, if I keep contracting this strong I might just pack up the car and ask if I am in labor!I wonder how my husband would get to the birth center if they say I am...I guess he would find a bus to get him there! Today would be a cute day to have her. My birthday is on the 21st. Our anniversary is on the 21st. DH's birthday is Feb first so 2/1. It would just be kind of cute if she fit right in there being born on the 21st. But then again, my body might just have everything fizzle just like the last 5 days...hence asking about taking caster oil on Sunday. Oh...I am totally ready to post my belly pic when the Friday belly pic thread is posted!

Update...

Not so great of one. I have been having high blood pressure the last couple of weeks. Well, the first reading for me today was 150/100. It kind of freaked out my midwife. She took it 3 more times and the lowest we could get it to go was 139/99. She said it is time for baby to be born. She stripped my membranes and we decided I will do caster oil on Sunday. I have been having contractions since the appointment. I am praying they continue and Marsi is born today. It kind of freaked me out to see my blood pressure today.

Fingers crossed for you. A friend of mine used castor oil and it worked very well. I'll send you ELV just in case. Won\t be long now.

I'm so sorry about your BP- it is scary to have to deal with complications. I really hope that the contractions keep up and you have baby safely in your arms soon.

Were you dilated at all? The castor oil works best if your dilated pretty well already, plus the stripping should send you quickly into labor! Praying you get her here by Sunday and your BP stays stable until then!
