I started really irregular early labor at 7:30am with my daughter, had a big meal at 7:30pm and my hard labor kicked into overdrive just a few hours later!

Quoting CheyennesMommy2:

Shes just so darn low. The pressure is awful. I get contrax alot more.after I eat..so.im gonna eat.

Which I always thought eating slowed labor. But.yea...not for me! Lol


Quoting Pandapanda:

It's called prodromal labor. Hang in there!

I see....dh said not tonight but towmorrow am he will go get me some...i might have a.groundhog day baby lol

Quoting Heather2001:

I just threw it in the water and strained it out with a cloth into another cup afterwards.  You can get a fine mesh tea steeper thingy, though.

Quoting CheyennesMommy2:

Dh may be going to get celery seed. Do I need like a bag? To steep it in?



Quoting Heather2001:

Not good, not terrible, LOL.  It's one of those things that you do when you're desperate.  It wasn't gag-worthy, though.

Quoting CheyennesMommy2:

How did that taste :/ lol I am sensitive to icky tastes and dont want to puke lol.





Quoting Heather2001:

It's not a tea like you'd think.  You get celery seed from the spice section and steep about a tsp of it in hot water.  Then strain it and just sip it slowly.

Quoting CheyennesMommy2:

I wouldnt even know where to begin to find that lol. But im for sure going to look!!







Quoting Heather2001:

Well, I'll tell you what finally worked for me: celery seed tea.  After four days of on-off active labor-type contractions, I was done.  I had walked miles and miles, sat in baths, had sex, basically did every thing in my power to get the contractions regular because I couldn't take it any longer, and I had read somewhere that celery seed tea might help and it did.  I only drank a half a cup and had him several hours later.

Quoting CheyennesMommy2:

40 weeks, going by dr...40+3 going by my calculations, which like I always say :) I know when we had sex. Lol and when I ovulated. But its only a few days difference not a biggie!









Quoting Heather2001:

Sorry if I missed it, but how far along are you?

Quoting CheyennesMommy2:

Its been a week :(











My other two went over so I wouldnt be suprised but im not going past 41 weeks. So id like her to just come out now.












Quoting Heather2001:

I had four days of prodromal labor like that before I finally had my son.  I feel for you!  Hope they get going for you soon!

I understand. I had 3 weeks of it! Contractions 2-3 min apart. 3-4cm and 80%..it was very frustrating
