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

Only a few more weeks!?!?!

How exciting - our club is going to start having its healthy little ones before we know it!

I cannot believe how many people are at or just a day shy of 37 weeks...the time flew by.

I have about a month to go still.

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

Every contraction no matter how big or small is one step closer to baby. Don't forget about sex as a cervical ripener!

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
