Thanks SweetMel, I'm definitely hoping I can go naturally as well. DH and I had always planned on a natural birth so we're still trying to wrap our heads around the idea that that may not happen - baby is the boss and seems to do what he wants! I've been trying lots of the natural induction tricks (sex, spicy food, lots of walking, bouncing on a birthing ball, etc) but none seem to be doing the trick lol. I had a doc appt on Wednesday and found out that I'm only 1cm dilated, not at all effaced, and that the baby (who WAS engaged last week) is now no longer engaged (apparently it's not uncommon for first time babies to engage and disengage several times before labour?). But yeah, so basically, as of Tuesday, I was no where near labour lol - stubborn LO!! How are you finding your pregnancy so far? Are you having many symptoms?

JL, I was told with my 2nd DS to stay out of swimming pools and tubs because the water can make the baby “float” and then they aren’t engaged anymore. Crazy right? Oxytocin is a cuddle/bonding hormone so any activity that helps with that is good to increase your oxytocin levels. Also try to reduce your adrenaline level which will delay labor. Think: Comfy, cozy, content.

AFM, I just got the results from my one and only blood work. Progesterone 17.7, TSH 7.02, and Hcg 31,057. They will be increasing my Thyroid medication. I feel okay most of the time, but I have had a few headaches lately and evening sickness.

Congrats Sweetmel!!

Hopefully the baby will come soon JL!

I have a journal, but it isn't nearly as long as a lot of ladies' who have journals. I'm not a huge journaler, so that's why

And just wanted to share pics of our baby girl She is doing great, still quite a few weeks away from going home, but she's growing and getting closer every day! She is now 2lb 1oz!

Markswife - your little girl is beautiful! I'm so glad to hear she's doing well!!

SweetMel - I'd never heard the bath tub thing before - some of the theories people have are so funny! Mind you, at this point I'm so anxious to have baby out that I would be more than happy to stop having baths if it means I get to meet LO sooner! Sorry to hear your having some unpleasant symptoms! How are you finding this pregnancy is comparing to your last? Are your symptoms pretty much the same?

How are the rest of you ladies doing? How are your pregnancies coming along?? Bunny, you're coming to the end now - are you getting excited??

Afm - I'm officially one week overdue and went to the hospital today to begin my induction. The OB checked my cervix and said I was about a "fingertip" dilated, but that the baby was engaged and low and that my cervix was in an anterior position (which I'm told is a good thing, but I don't really know what it means ). I received a dose of prostaglandin gel, was monitored for an hour and then sent home. Now I'm just waiting to see what body does over the next 24 hours - if I don't go into labour on my own then I will go back to the hospital, be admitted, and they will administer an IV of pitocin to get things started. It's exciting to think I may actually meet LO tomorrow!!

JL- I am very excited for you. Hopefully you meet lo today!

Afm, I had my first ultrasound and bubs is measuring on time and has a heartbeat. I was such a relief.
