i really like RRLT. I drank it through my entire 2nd and 3rd trimester with J. I was at 4 cups a day from weeks 38-40. Right now its early still, so i drink a cup every few days.

It's cold and snowy here too! I have a dog though so he gets me out for 2 walks a day. I definitely feel like slowing down. I'm going to see a friend who was due the day after me but had her baby on the 9th so I'm hoping that will encourage little buddy to want to come out! We've been having sex regularly and it does seem to cause an increase in Braxton hicks but nothing else yet!

Good luck with your sweep tomorrow, let me know how it goes and what it's like!

We have a french bulldog and he hates the cold more than me... so he's not a very good motivator. I will try to drag him out this afternoon when it warms up a little.

DH has been afraid to touch me since I got pregnant , so sex at this stage will be a fun proposition!! I will have to use all of my seduction skills!

I'll keep you posted on the sweep... let's hope this LO is here by the weekend!!!

EPO = Evening Primrose Oil - I've been taking 3 capsules a day and have increased it to 6.

As for the Red Raspberry Leaf, my store was sold out of the tea when I went so I bought it in capsule form. I've been taking two and have increased that to 4 as well...

I am constantly sleepy and having trouble getting in solid naps/sleeps, so I am just trying to take it easy. It helps that it's been super cold and snowy - I don't really want to go anywhere anyway!

It certainly doesn't feel imminent for me. If my sweep on Weds doesn't kickstart anything I am going to try sex and spicy food. I REALLY don't want an induction... so I am going to do anything I can to avoid it.
I was a week overdue with DS and I credit spicy sausage and sex with finally bringing him out. The night before I went into labour, OH asked what I wanted for supper and I asked for his hot sausages and he thought I was kidding. Up until that point I hated sausage and spicy food, but for some reason I really wanted it that night. Then before bed we had sex and again the next morning before we even got up. I went to the washroom to clean up and sat on the toilet and my water broke. 5 mins later contractions started coming 4mins apart!

Those spicy sausages ended up being the last thing I was allowed to eat for 3 days. The funny thing is that I actually like those sausages now

Hey gals!! I had my appt yesterday and my cervix is soft, 1 cm dilated and 30-40% effaced... they will do my sweep on Tuesday and they are anticipating only one sweep will be needed to get things going if they don't start before then... so I am going to focus on napping a bit longer.

Keep up your naps Yikes! Spicy sausage and sex sounds like a great plan to me

Welcome bekkie

I'm starting to think the pain I've been having is SPD I have been doing some reading on it, and it sounds just like what I'm having. I have a doctors appt on Tuesday, so I will ask her about it then.

We had our 2nd private scan last week. Here are a few of our baby girl

Sending labour dust to all the ladies who are so close to meeting their LO's
