Okay, I'll admit it. I am ready to have this baby. I am really excited, ever since my new goddaughter was born last Monday. I won't do anything drastic to get it out but I do a few things. Here are some of the things I've done.
I started contracting yesterday. They actually got pretty strong and I threw up a few times. We thought we might get a little baby action but it didn't work out. I've been contracting all day today, too. They've been as close as every 5 minutes and as far as every 20 minutes. A few have been painful but most are pretty mild. So I'm trying to get my uterus on my side in the fetal eviction process.
1. Nookie. Poor Lettuce, nookie doesn't interest me, especially since my girth has expanded to such epic proportions. However, I suck it up *no pun intended* and get it on in the name of labor. As you know, semen has prostoglandins that help the cervix ripen and thin.
2. Walking. I don't like walking, or at least I didn't until we moved. I usually walk in the midnight hour, literally. I walk between 12 am and 2 am because that's when the hubby is home from work, it's cool, there's no traffic, and the kids are asleep. I also took Side Salad to the zoo this week.
3. Herbs. Not the ones that actually induce labor, though. I stick to the red raspberry leaf tea and a pregnancy tea blend. I like the Third Trimester Tea from Earth Mama Angel Baby
but it's had to find so I use the Traditional Medicines brand.
WARNING: I didn't know my booty was so close to the screen when I taped it O_o
