So I'm thinking of breaking out the pump tomorrow to help get labor moving. Starting off on the lowest setting and doing, 15 minutes each breast. I have already been hand stimulating for almost a week now...
Well I've eaten 3 pineapples so far, LOL. Not in the same day of course. I know you have to eat like 7 at once or something insane for it to mayyyyybe even do anything, but w/e I like pineapple. I'm all out of it tonight and kind of bummed, I've about gotten addicted to it.
I've been doing nipple stimulation too and it brings on a lot of contractions but they just don't go anywhere. I'm not doing ANYTHING tonight, I want a night of rest.
I'm gonna do the pump ... I did it once and then meh... also i'll try some more accupressure but idk... I keep thinking i'm not one of the lucky ones to go oh!! that really worked yippiee!! i haven't had contrx or anything happening for a while. C'mon full moon!!!? heh heh
The pump worked for me after a night of cervadil though. I was able to get contractions going while bouncing on the ball. Once one would hit I would sorta grind into the pressure... Ultimately my progress wasn't enough to prolong the pit but I still feel if I had been given a couple days I would've been able to do it on my own.
Initially I feared the pump in the days preceding my induction because I thought I would pump colostrum since I was so quick to get a few drops, but when I used it through labor, no more than a few drops were ever produced.
I'd get at it! and the ball, esp if u can feel her down low, grind into it!
