as of tomorrow it's just 3 more weeks for me!! My c/s is booked for July 25. I'm feeling pretty good - other than the fact that there's not much room in there anymore and the baby is making some pretty strong movements - that can get uncomfortable at times. can't believe that the time is nearly here! I've got SO much to do though, so I hope baby can hold on until my date. my water broke before each of my 2 previous booked c/s dates - once at 37+2 and the other at 39+2 (I was booked at 39+3 that time!). This time I'm booked at 38+3, so I'm hoping that I'll make it that far.

Oh wow Mel that's so exciting!! Oh 3 more weeks would be so nice!!! I've still got 5 if bubs comes on time. I would love a baby that came early or even just on time would be nice!! 2 of mine I have been induced for being overdue 10+ days... Fx not this time! I've started taking raspberry leaf tea and evening primrose oil... Never tried it before, don't know if it will help but it's worth a try!! I will try anything to avoid being induced again. I've still got lots to do before she arrives so thst should keep me busy for a few weeks!

It's happening so fast!!!! I still have another 9 weeks (or so) here left though. I'm ready and not ready at the same time. I think my baby might be a little early but I'm not expecting more than a day or so (like my other boys).

Good luck with the EPRO and the Red Rasberry leaf tea. I did EPRO w/DS1 and DS2 and Red Raspberry leaf tea w/DS2. I think it worked (personally). I'm going a different approach this time with this LO. I'm not giong to do ANYTHING! LOL I just want to try something different. I'm not going to do anything different than just sit and wait for her to arrive. I had my membranes stripped with both of the boys. It worked with DS1 and not with DS2, that might be the only thing I might consider doing as my due date approaches but we'll see.

 Have plenty to do around here for the next several weeks until my baby girl arrives.

It is starting to go faster now I think! My boys will be on school holidays for 2 weeks as of next week so that'll make it go quick to. When they go back to school I'll only have another 2 weeks!! My sister has organised a baby shower for me this weekend so I'm looking forward to that too. I keep hearing birth horror stories which are scaring me this time, I was never worried with my boys but this time I'm paranoid about something going wrong!! I'm enjoying her being inside me where I know she's safe! Glad u think epo and rlt help, I sure hope so!! Why do you think they helped, what was your experience with them?

I went to the doctor yesterday and was checked im 1 cm and 20 effaced and i think the epo helped me get there. The epo helps rippen the  cervix so its softens and easy to dilate. The tea i think just helps you relax. They tried to send me yesterday to tri age since i had pink bleeding which she swore was from sex but nope i know my body and it wasn't. lol I choose not to go so we are hoping i last until Wednesday since they wont stop labor then but we are worried they will take our baby away since their NICU rules say any baby under 37 weeks which is crap. Thats why i kinda hate the military at the moment. lol

Congratulations!

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.

Did you take the epo orally or did you do it vaginally? I've started taking it orally... But I don't know if I could even reach down there to put it up there!! Lol.

LOL I understand the feeling! Shaving alone is a nightmare!

I took it orally. I think I started out at 1 pill a day and then went up to two (one in the AM and one PM). I forget when exactly I started doing that though....
