My midwife gave me the go-ahead once I reached the beginning of my 37th week (this past Thursday) to start any natural induction methods I wanted. So, I've been drinking red raspberry leaf tea (which tastes NOTHING like raspberries), taking Evening Primrose Oil by mouth and inserting one capsule inside as close to my cervix as I can get it..... and walking as much as I can. Oh, and bouncing on my birth ball.
I woke up this morning at 5am with pretty regular contractions - but they died off after about 2 hours and then earlier this afternoon I have about 3 hours of regular contractions.... which then disappeared.
I am praying that my body is just gearing up and these contractions are doing something! I have my next appointment on Thursday.. so I guess we will find out
I think I am going to start all of that jazz too once I hit 37 weeks...the whole BP fiasco has me worried, I do NOT want to be induced so if I can get things started on their own anytime between 37 weeks (this Thursday!) and GingerBean's actual due date - great!
Babies are on their way ladies - ready or not here they come
Wow!!! I hope they work out!!!! I know they didnt for me still went over 40. But contractions are a great sign!!!! I cant blieve how soon people will be having their babies! Im in no rush right now... Ill be 37 weeks on sunday and can only hope he stays until his due date at least!
I have that tea in my pantry and I keep forgetting it is there! I need to get on that! 37w on Thursday, and hoping that this little man decides to appear on 5/22. That would by far be the easiest for timing for us with all the end of year stuff going on with the other 2 kids. LOL! Plus I really like the date
