Progress...PLEASE!!


I just wanted to post a quick update to let you all know that I am still pregnant! I am counting down the minutes now 'till this baby girl arrives. (8 days 'till her projected due date) There is little to no sleep for me as I cannot get comfortable laying down due to indigestion and horrible back pains and I can't sit up because my legs ache. I visit the doctor tomorrow and hopefully we'll find that we have some more progression. Last week I was dilated to a 2 but my cervix was still in tact. Keep your fingers crossed that tomorrow we'll find out that the cramps that I've been having at night have caused a bit more progression toward labor and maybe she'll arrive soon!

I was SO sure you were giving birth!! :(

Keeping my fingers crossed!! I can recommend sitting on a giant exercise ball and red raspberry tea. The tea doesn't induce labor, it tones the uterus to make the contractions more effective and the pushing more effective as well. I didn't drink it with my first- pushed 2.5 hours. Drank gallons of it with my second, pushed 4 times.

GOOD LUCK!!

Hmmm, let's see ... what would be a good date for my Blogchild (that's Blogger for Godchild) to show up?

How about Saturday the 23rd? How's that sound? Can you last that long? I'll put in a word with the stork for ya!

Sorry to disappoint, Stella. I couldn't get online last night because my internet was down. :(

Thanks for the raspberry tea info. I'm going to give it a try.

Said a quick prayer for you...
I moved furniture the week before my son arrived - I don't recommend it but it worked. I worked until my last child showed up but I thought I'd never see the end of the pregnancy. I walked a lot and finally - there she was!
I hope the last few days fly by for you.
~~~Blessings~~~

I can put a drop of water on a crinkled straw wrapper and make it grow.
Hardly compares, does it?
