Labor update

photo from yourwaterbirth.com

Not much to tell. We were still pretty hopeful a few hours ago...but no so much anymore.

With Millicent I labored for almost two days with contractions coming every ten minutes. For a while these were coming every six and then every four and now just whenever. So I'm thinking I may still have some time here.

COME ON! Is this really what prodromal labor is like???? Literally HOURS of regular, routine contractions and then nothing?

Whew, can't wait for a few more weeks of this. FUN! FUN!

I'll keep you posted. Maybe my next post will be filmed from my birth pool as I'm soaking up the water.

I'm doing a little walking, a little bathing and some birth ball sitting. Anyone have any more suggestions for me?

Google "scalini's eggplant parmesan recipe" for inducing labor. Check out this YouTube video since it kind of explains it (be sure to read the sign they pan over): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAldcSOK3A4

I first heard about it during my Hypnobirthing class and didn't try it, but will be doing so with my next baby if he or she is overdue (I was 10 days OD with DD!).

Let us know if you try it and it works!
