blue and black coash, nipple stim, have a big O, If I had seen this thread earlier I would have also recommended gentle birthing herb mixture but there is no way you could get it by the 5th with shipping.

I was scheduled for a repeat c-section at exactly 42-weeks. At 41+, I was 0% effaced and 0cm dilated. I went from absolutely NOTHING to having a baby in 3-days, VBAC'ed, and escaped a scheduled c-section by less than 24-hours. I also had the never-ending contractions for MONTHS. Still didn't start dilating/effacing until almost 42-weeks!

Good luck, mama!

ETA: Also walked with a cane for a couple months due to groin and sciatic nerve pain/pinching.

Re: Need encouragement and reassurance:update1

Unfortunately due to being put on leave early I cannot wait till my dd or I will run out of fmla and my work will NOT hold my position after the 12 weeks they are legally required to and the dr will not let me go past 40 weeks anyway. I just took one more dose of castor oil drank a triple strength glass of rrl tea and made dh dtd earlier. Last time I did this I had really strong ctx but they stopped. This time I will get on the treadmill and use the pump and see if I can keep them going if they start.

Just want to give you a hug. I know how it feels to be up against a clock and a brick wall. Hugs, mama.
