Sweeping

Ok, I am not really nesting yet, but we did do a membrane sweep at the midwife appointment tonight! I also picked up a bottle of evening primrose oil to help move things along...

  1. Okay I'll bite. What does evening primrose oil do?

  2. Aparently, Evening Primrose oil is supposed to "ripen" the cervix in preporation for labor. It contains prostaglandins (sp) which is the same thing that semen has in it. That is why the old saying goes "have sex to help labor along". Who knows if it will help. I know that the body won't go into labor until it is good and ready.
