so tomorrow marks 41 weeks for me - i'd really like this LO to come out TONIGHT or tomorrow!

I have to have an ultrasound to check fluids tomorrow, and a stress test, and another BP check.

At my appt. yesterday I was 4 cm, and 80%, and had membranes stripped - my BP was high again, 120/94. I also had blood taken again, but nothing abnormal, as usual...the midwife also PROMISED that the LO would be out by the end of the week. she wouldn't lie, right??

I haven't had any contractions yet, and no other signs of labor, but at least my body is doing something...now it just needs to speed up a little (lot??) bit!

I still have hope this baby decides to come out today or tomorrow on his/her own! I've had enough waiting!

are you doing anything to induce naturally?

lots of walking
stair climbing
nipple stimulation
fresh pineapple
a glass of wine
orgasms
also there is a legend about this eggplant parm recipe- http://www.wchstv.com/gmarecipes/egg...armigian.shtml

probably all that sex and other good things have gotten you this far! Now it's only a matter of time. Do you know the station? Doing lots of squats and lunges and hands/knees is really good for getting baby to drop.

You have a good chance of having a quick labor, especially since you're so effaced- so at least that is nice!!!

oh- and keep having sex- it'll help get you that other 20% effaced.

Oh you poor thing. I went to 41 weeks with marcus. I had never had a contraction and had NO signs of labor until the morning I turned 41 weeks and I had him within 9 hours of labor starting. Ihope you go soon!

looks like the last day she was on JM was the 11th. Hopefully she's busy at home with a new baby!
