Re: Went to appt. today (40 wks 2 days)

oh my... I'm so sorry it feels as if it's dragging out for you mama. When I was at this stage with my first, the nurse up at the L&D ward was sending me home and he told me "Have a glass of red wine. It'll help a few things along but it'll also help to relax you." Not to mention squats. Lots of walking and squats.

good luck mama and lots and lots of vibes coming your way!!!

Well, the past few hours, I've been having some really crampy and in-the-back contractions. I hope this means that we are coming down to the wire!!


An induction has been scheduled for 8/21, but I don't want to be induced!!! I NEED to have this baby in the next couple of days!
I was using a breast pump to try to get things going on the day I went into Labor- it worked! During one of my breaks from using the pump, my water broke.

Sending positive "welcome baby" vibes your way.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for ya!
If you do go on the 21st - it's a great day for a birthday! (DS will be 1 that day!)
I'll hope for earlier, though, for your sake!
