Have you seen Call the Midwife? Another BBC show, I've only seen the first few episodes but it's really good.

We have the 8 passenger Sienna. I LOVE IT!!!! The middle seat is slightly narrower than the other two, but I don't think it would be a huge issue to get 3 across in there. We're planning on taking out the side seat, putting baby in the middle of the middle row, DD2 next to baby, and then DD1 in the 3rd row behind where we removed the seat, so people can still ride with us. I'm also going to try scooting the middle seat up so we can easily see baby from the front.

It started out like an ice cream headache, but then turned into a kidney stone/gallbladder......though ive never had either one:/ maybe gas pains?

Now im terrified of labor pains..im a wuss.
So sorry mama. Don't be scared! It'll be ok!

I think it must have been gas and the d/c was a fluke i guess.

Probably overdid it today. All the floors were cleaned, laundry, kitchen, fridge.......now my sciatica is howling.

yay for a 8 seater sienna!!! Sounds fancy pants!!! Im still driving my civic o.O
Mid march we start the hunt and dh is leaning toward a pacifica. I'll take anything that fits all three kids so i dont care, but if we had $$ i choose a traverse or 2013 odyssey

The Odyssey has more bells and whistles than the Sienna, but costs more or Id have one too. Both have great reliability.

I've seen them all, it's really good! They showed them on our local PBS station.

Definitely a good idea. I don't think it warrants an emergency call, but definitely worth mentioning.

Yikes! Busy mama! Better take it easy tomorrow!

AFM: Hiccup is most definitely head down tonight - sharp little feet sticking right out the left side of my belly, just where Levi always shoved his feet out - ouchie!

What kind of van are you getting? We LOVE our T&C!

Well, I almost didn't post this because I felt kind of like a crazy FTM, but we went to the OB yesterday to have baby checked out. Two nights ago he seemed to not be moving much at all. But still occasional movements. Weak and lethargic feeling. I chalked it up to a busy day and went to bed. Overnight, he'll bump around when I get up to pee and especially get a drink. Nothing. That morning he moved a little in bed, but nothing after breakfast. We even each got a big diet coke at mc'ds on the way to run some morning errands, I felt one kick. Came home, had lunch, laid DS down for a nap, no moving. I ate three small pieces of chocolate to wake him up and still nothing. :/

I pushed in pretty good on one side and he shifted, bbut that was it. Pushed on the other and he shifted again but that was it.

Finally called the ob and asked for advice. They had us come in right away and hook up to the belly monitor. Of course on the way there he started moving like crazy. I let them know when ee got there (literally a 5 minute drive) that he was moving a ton now, but they luckily still wanted to do a 20 min monitor. He was a super happy baby, kicking at the tight straps lol.

I told my ob I was sorry they had to work me jn and she was very reassuring. Said they have had moms play it up to a sleepy baby for a few days and finally come in only to find the baby has died. so I am glad we went in, and he's been bonking around like normal since. He literally moves all. The. Time! So it was really abnormal for him to be sooo lethargic for 15+ hrs.

I've often heard that mamas start them at 35-36 weeks orally, gradually increasing the dose, then add internally as well at 37-38 weeks.
Here's a few info sites I found:
How to Use EPO to Induce Labor
Raspberry Leaf Tea & EPO FAQs
a chat thread on some forum, but with MW instructions in at least the second post

Hope that's of some help! You could always start a thread in the pregnancy board asking for what other mamas used for doses.
Thanks for the links! A friend suggested to me that it makes the dilation process quicker when the time comes. I definitely don't want to induce labor early, but if I can help the process out when it comes (naturally), I'd be more than willing to do that.
