That is the best news Betheney!!! I bet you are soooo ready to take him home. Hope the four of you are doing well. How big is he now?... I was going to ask about a million questions, but I'll stop myself
At my antenatal classes they said not to start the rasberry leaf tea until week 37 as it can start labour. What were u ladies told?
I was told to start from around 34 weeks (this saturday technically). But to do it gradually - start with one cup a day for 2 weeks, then 2 cups for 2 weeks and then 3 cups for 2 weeks. (provided i go to 40 weeks).
I didn't realise Els was having baby so soon! I suck at keeping up with the news. I wonder when all the labours will start.
I must say I was surprised to hear my cervix was long, closed and unfavourable before my induction. I mean I had a billion Braxton hicks every single day!!! I had them every 3-5mins once for 9 hours. They would wake me at night they were so strong and so consistent. I secretly thought they may have been doing something down there.... obviously not.
Also I was shocked that I still got the ring of fire when Remi came out, I remember screaming "why does this hurt his head is suppose to be tiny" or something along those lines. Well I dug out my papers from Eva's birth today and she had the SAME size head as Remi so no wonder it still hurt. Lol he flew out too in less than 5 mins, although I think the 1minute pushing stage on his papers was a bit exaggerated, felt a lot longer than 1minute.
Birth story needs a teeny bit of editing then I'll pass the link on.
