Restless.....

I forgot how restless you get at the end of pregnancy lol....... so ready for this little man to come out. Due date is in 2 days. My midwife says if I don't have him this week, than I will be induced the following week. I really don't want to be induced, so I'm hoping he decides to make his appearance this week!

    LOL I know the feeling.. My youngest was my first homebirth.. I had Prodermal labor for 4 days... Two and a half weeks later she came in 4 hour labor. Little stinker. THAT was a long month.

    Oh I bet!!!! Well today is my due date and I've felt absolutely miserable, almost flu-like. BUT I read that it's common to feel that way the day or so before labor. So I'm hoping he will be here soon.

    <3 Praying for you. The best thing I found was to do things... That waiting around business is for the birds. My crazy sister took her kids to the zoo at 41 weeks with one pregnancy because she got tired of the wait.

    Thank you :) I've tried a different array of things. I've been walking and doing the yoga ball, I've tried EPO and Raspberry Leaf Tea, tried spicy food, sex..... nothing seems to get this little man out. I did that with my 3rd pregnancy. My husband and I took our others girls to the zoo and walked it. It didn't put me into labor at all. She ended up coming a few days later.

    lol Nothing will work if baby isn't ready. i know the feeling of trying everything. I do think that a few cups of the red raspberry tea toned my uterus enough to make an easier labor.

    Lol ya that's what my midwife said. She said if baby is not ready, no matter what you do, he won't come. Oh i love the raspberry leaf tea (although I wish I grabbed the right one with my oldest lol!!!!) The discharge nurse told me you can buy it at Walmart. I didn't realize there was a difference between red raspberry leaf and raspberry leaf lol... Now I got the right one and I absolutely love it :)
