    I'm getting some tomorrow! I'm sure that midwives wouldn't recommend it if it caused infection hun, prehaps just give it a rinse first and make sure that your hands are clean.

    *lol* Sooo weird! It's amazing the crazy things pregnant ladies think of trying to get baby out! I'll probably start taking some orally closer to my due date... but I think I'll have to read up a bit more on this whole other entrance deal! :laughs:

    never heard this one before...I guess the oil helps soften stuff.

    Meh I'm messy enough down there as it with discharge...its like a snotty nose down there at the best of times (sorry TMI) I'm not adding to the mess!
