I’m officially serving the eviction notice

28 Nov

Since I’m now only 3 days off full term, and due to start being induced in a little over a week I’m going to do my best to a) get baby engaged and b) get her out by ourselves. I’m not a fan of the whole induction/ c-section idea so if she could make an appearance beforehand I would be over the moon!

Things I’m trying 

  • 2 cups of raspberry leaf tea a day
  • EPO inserted nightly
  • Lots of time bouncing on my ball
  • Hot baths
  • As much time as possible stood up/ walking(difficult with SPD/ on crutches)
  • Sitting on a chair backwards and leaning far forward in my chair

Things I’ve yet to try

  • Sex
  • Clary Sage
  • Curry
  • Pineapple (difficult – GD)
  • Chocolate milkshake (difficult – GD)

So far I’m definitely getting more braxton hicks and general pain, and my SPD is getting much worse so I really hope that means she’s engaging. If she doesn’t engage then we have a problem.

What worked for you, what didn’t, what are you trying to move labour along?

Wish me luck – I’d love it if I could bring my munchkin into the world without needing all the extra help and monitoring.
