How are you both doing???
As far as the EPO and the RLT I think they both helped because w/DS1 (only took EPO w/him) at 36 weeks I wasn't dilated nor was I effaced. By 39 weeks I was 3cm and 50% effaced. Had my membranes stripped and went into labor that night. With DS2 at 36 weeks I was 1cm dilated and not effaced at all. By 39 weeks I was 4cm dilated and 75% effaced. I had my membranes stripped that day too and no labor but I went into labor a few days later. That labor I had been taking the RLT and I really do think that it helped tone my muscles as far as the labor went.
Whether I was just "ready" or not who knows, but I really do think that stuff helped. Like I said though, I don't plan on taking anything this time but at my 36 week appointment when she checks me I might change my mind depending on what's happening down there! LOL Or at least take the RLT for the labor part. We'll see! I haven't decided yet.
