Ok girls, thanks for your responses on when you went into labor so far- keep up the good work, and stop being chicken! If you haven't responded, please do- it makes me feel warm and fuzzy!
We have officially begun "Project: Eject Baby". Now, I realize that the baby will come when it is good and ready. I know, that short of a C-section, there is no 100% method to getting your baby out before your baby says "hey mom, I am ready"! But, for my own sanity, the sanity of my partner Mindi, and the pure entertainment of all the fantastic visitors to my blog, let the project begin!
What have we been doing so far? Walking. Up until this point, I have just been doing some casual walking (in stores and such) to help bring the baby lower into the pelvis.
And, as you know (per my last post) I tried the "My head is going to explode if my ass doesn't first hot sauce"
Now, we are going to start bringing out the biggER guns. I will keep everyone updated on the new things we try...
Currently working on: The Birth Ball
-Said to aid in bringing the baby lower into the pelvis to help gravity dilate the cervix, as well as help open the "pelvic outlet" to allow the baby to pass through more easily. "Hula Hooping" motions on the ball are said to help open the pelvic outlet as well, and for me personally, they have been bringing on some pretty sweet contractions! (Like right now! Yowsers!)
Next up: The Enema...
I'll let you know how that turns out... teehee
