I'm in the final stretch of this pregnancy and sooooo ready for it to be OVER!! I've been so miserable! I've been having contractions for 2 weeks now, but they don't stick around. Sunday morning I had strong contractions from about 2:30am until 5am coming 10 minutes apart and then they just fizzled out. I've also been losing a HUGE amount of my mucas plug/discharge since Wednesday.. some of it with bloody show. I am just in constant pain with my back, hips, and pins and needles feeling down in my whoohaaa. I am just so done (and so crabby lol). At my last OB appointment I was 2-3cm dilated and my doctor didn't think I'd make it to my next appointment (tomorrow) but said if I did we'd schedule an induction. I've tried walking and walking and walking.. I've tried spicy foods.. I even gave in and tried sex LOL. What else can I do (safely) to break through the baby's stubbornness get her out of me... like right now LOL???

Many Many Thanks to GraysMama (Chelsea) for my AMAZING Siggy!!!

breast pump (start on a low setting for 10 min or so, then off for 15 min and slowly build up, but no more than 10 min on at a time)
orgasms - lots of orgasms
you can suck on a sucker, there is supposed to be a trigger point in the roof of your mouth, so supposedly sucking really hard on a sucker can help things along
ummm let's see, stairs and squatting

acupuncture can usually get things going in 1-2 treatments though i would really recommend it! you can go in before your appt tomorrow, and then again on Wednesday if you need to
