That's where I bought it from too Yeah it's not bad at all and I figure if anything it will help keep hydrated.

I have no idea what you guys are talking about with EPO soft gels tabs and so on. Is that to soften your cervix or something????

I'm into the teas and tixtures but my midwife said it will be my hormones in the end that start my labour which is what I want. I don't know ever since I kind of forced Eli's labour and it was so fast and hard I'm even hesitent with the tea and so on but my midwife just said if anything it will improve labour but can't force it....

Any body ever hear of Mother's Cordial? (I think I spelt that right).

Yep, its supposed to soften the cervix, and from my understanding, the prostaglandins wont induce labor (which is what I want....to make labor easier, but not induce it).

Had my 37 week clearance by the OB (at 36 weeks). My birth center requires every woman to get the OB's ok to deliver at the birth center once you reach full term. He said baby girl's head is down and she is in the optimal birthing position (THANKS SPINNING BABIES!!). He estimated her size (palpating my uterus) at 7.5lbs (minimum) which is concerning b/c Im only 36 weeks. Ive gained half the weight this time as I did with DS (almost 9lbs) but I guess I just make big babies lol! He is a nice enough guy, but definitely has a more medical perspective about birth (actually didnt understand the midwives' caution in doing cervical exams for me even though Ive shown early signs of labor. He implied that if I were to deliver now-even though Im not even 37 weeks-that would be "good b/c youd have a smaller, easier to deliver baby.")!! I definitely made the right decision for me to go with my midwives :-)

So, after I turn in my FMLA paperwork today (if I can stop procrastinating) I will be 100% ready to deliver :-)

OWEE momma! Rest and heal! Hubby's co-worker's wife fell down their basement stairs doing laundry and broke both legs at 8.5 mos pregnant. She was in a wheel chair for her entire maternity leave and of course before having the baby! So, be careful out there!

What's spinning babies? Is that something you did to turn your little girl? Both my births started with my children in posterior positions. DD turned and her delivery was easy-DS did not and I delivered him completely posterior...OUCH and would like to avoid that from happening again. Did you do something to get her to go back out????

Hope that heals quickly-I'm surprised it hasn't happened to me yet. I am SOOOOO FREAKING clumsy right now it's driving me BONKERS! I am for ever almost tipping over, tripping, bumping into things and just a walking mess in general!!! Not a very graceful pregnant women to say the least.

It is a site that has lots of information on how to get your baby in the best position to birth in. http://www.spinningbabies.com/

It is a little overwelming to me at times, but does have great information.

37 weeks now! I finished hanging up some pictures in the nursery today, packed the baby's bag for the birth center and figured out the co-sleeper arrangement for my room. I was having contractions every 5 minutes or so early this morning but they fizzled out, boo!
