I've been trying EPO to see if it will help me dilate at all. I'd started taking it orally before my last appointment, and there was no change. Since then I added in a couple of capsules vaginally, so I guess I'll see on Thursday if it's done anything! I'm not quite ready for this baby to come, as in I have a few more things I'd like to get done around the house (otherwise, I'm ready!), but I'd like things to look a bit more favorable I guess!
OMG Powell that's so exciting!!! I wish mine would get here, I'm ready for Emily to get out!
I have an appointment today so I'll see if the EPO, rlt and zinc are doing anything...plus all the bouncing on the exercise ball. I sit on it all day at work and for a couple hours each night at home. And trying exercises and stuff. Nothing's working yet I'm going to ask if my dr does sweeps though (I know I probably can't have one today - partly because my cervix is still probably not cooperating!) but I really don't want to have to be induced.
Keep us updated Jess! I'll probably add some zinc in after this next appointment. I'm SO tempted to take a cold-eze tablet at the moment, since I actually DO have a cold, but as much as I'd welcome going into labor naturally right now I am not quite ready to take any extra zinc with the EPO in case it actually works! lol
