 Please don't bash, I'm almost 36 weeks and I know it's early.

ANYWAYS.....

I'm STILL pregnant.

Here I am 4cm dialated, at least 50% effaced, having contractions like 8 an hour and still nothing. Don't get me wrong I'm happy baby wants to stay in and cook longer, but MAN this stinks. I just want it to eaither GO or STOP, not this in between thing that happeneing right now! Even though nothing seems to be ready, I'M ready now. I finally packed my bag even... I'm FINALLY just EXCITED and READY to DO THIS!!! I WANT my little BOY already!

Are you trying red raspberry leaf tea and evening primrose oil?  Those can tip the scales.  The tea can actually stop the uncomfortableness because it makes you uterus stronger so the prodromal labor isn't as noticeable if it does keep going.

 I started taking the Oil yesterday. Just orally though, but I think tonight after sex I'm going to do it vaginally also.

 The tea I have not used at all though. Can I get it at any store? (Like Wally world or Target)

 Yeppers, but my doc will only let me go if it's by 38 weeks. I've made great progress, but I just feel like I'm at such a stand still. I have a doc appt Tuesday, so we'll see. Hopefully I'll be in REAL labor then!

Usually you can get it anywhere, I get it at the grocery store in the natural foods section, but all the tea is there. Just so you know I think it taste gross so I make a ton of it and drink it iced as fast as I can.  It is great for VBAC moms to use because it makes your uterus stronger and in better shape

Aaaahh. I was in labor on and off for 3 days, I kept telling my doctor I wasn't showing up for his stupid induction. Third day I showed up for the induction... haha 2 days past my due date. I couldn't stand it. I was SO nauseated.

Hope things move quickly for you!
