Wombat’s still in even though I’m eating tons of spicy food and eggplant (two things I’ve read). Tonight after work, I’m going for a long walk with my sister and husband to see if that helps. Granted, my feet will be giant, orge feet afterwards.

@TheFutureMcBride:  Bwahahaha!  Oh, and pineapple!  Add pineapple to your list. 

Good luck to all the ladies at the end of their pregnancy journeys.  I’m wishing you all safe, easy, fast births.  Labor dust!

@TheFutureMcBride: Whip up a batch (or have someone do it for you!) of labor cookies! I made them for SIL and she went into labor the next day. I’m taking credit. Hahaha 😉

They’re super yummy, too. Not that I snuck a few after baking them or anything.

@MrsMaine: Just texted my sister that we’re making some of those cookies.

@nskillet: My husband’s been rubbing them and using the accupressure points I found in hopes of sending me into labor. Granted, it doesn’t help the swelling.

@Mrs. Spring: Pineapple added.

@TheFutureMcBride:  Nothing helps the swelling except getting that %&^* baby out.  Sigh.

Awww thanks for asking! Unfortunately she’s still in the belly though 🙁

Tell me about these labor cookies, I’ve never heard of them. I’m trying out everything I can, so far Chinese (all the Jewish women I know had it the night before they gave birth), lots of walking (@TheFutureMcBride: I feel you with the swollen feet!), spicy food, etc. Tonight is aqua zumba, I’m hoping the jumping around will do something. I think I’ll also try a trigger point massage/accupressure thing if she doesn’t come in a few days.

They scheduled an induction for next Friday when I’m 41 weeks which I’m not too happy about, but since she’s already bigger then average I know it’ll be for the best.

Best wishes for labor soon and a speedy delivery!

@artbee: They’re only one of the best things ever. A cross between a snickerdoodle-type cookie and a ginger snap. So delicious! I frosted mine with that hardening cookie frosting and they were to die for (or to go into labor for….)

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 tablespoons (or 1 stick) margarine
1/2 cup granulated sugar (will also need extra sugar to roll cookie dough in)
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup molasses
2 egg whites

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt and cayenne pepper in small mixing bowl.  Set dry ingredients aside.

Then blend margarine in large mixing bowl.  Stir in brown sugar and granulated sugar slowly.  Add the molasses, then the egg whites.  Finally, add the dry ingredients to your mix. 

Roll dough into ¾ inch balls.  Roll cookie balls in sugar to lightly coat each cookie.  Place balls on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are golden brown.

@artbee: I just looked up the recipe and checked on a couple of websites (really, only 2). Here’s the recipe:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 tablespoons (or 1 stick) margarine
1/2 cup granulated sugar (will also need extra sugar to roll cookie dough in)
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup molasses
2 egg whites

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt and cayenne pepper in small mixing bowl.  Set dry ingredients aside.

Then blend margarine in large mixing bowl.  Stir in brown sugar and granulated sugar slowly.  Add the molasses, then the egg whites.  Finally, add the dry ingredients to your mix.

Thanks girls! Just sent my hubby to the grocery store to get those ingrediants (and lunch). Can’t wait to try them and see if they work!
