…still no signs that she’s anywhere close to coming out on her own. I’ve tried just about every wives tale I can think of, and I’m still only 1cm dialated and about 50% effaced. I even lost my mucus plug over a week ago. *sigh*
I’m so ready to meet this little girl (and be able to put on my own shoes)!

Oh wow, this is such an exciting time though. Even though I was pretty uncomfortable towards the end and ready for baby to come, every day was kind of cool, like, will this be the day? How far overdue will your dr. let you go before they start talking induction? Are you still working?

Good luck, lady. I’ll send some labor dust your way! Hopefully baby girl decides she’s ready to meet the world ASAP.

@BabyBoecksMom: I’m still at work, but I’m not really doing much working. I work with my husband so I’m really just here in case I go into labor during the work week, since our house is 30 minutes away from work, in the opposite direction of the hospital. My doctor doesn’t like to induce on the first baby, but I was able to get him to agree to induce if she’s not here after another week. So hopefully only one more week at the most 🙂

C’mon baby, let’s get this thing going! It sounds like you’re well on your way, and at the very worst, you have a certain eviction date. Keep your chin up, girl, you’re almost there!

Exciting! Good luck, and come on out baby!! I think the mucus plug is a good sign, but I guess you never know.

I was just reading about natural ways to induce labor 🙂
Try nipple/sexual stimulation (made my uterus contract!), massage pressure points (there is one on your ankle, in between thumb/pointer and on your shoulder/neck), warm baths, long brisk walks, and other physical activity. I know there are more but I can’t think of any right now.
Good luck and hope she comes soon!

I’ve been reading “Do chocolate lover have sweeter babies?” and she says based on evidence the only thing that may work is breast stimulation. Do you have a breast pump?
