Tried and True...

So.. I am looking at things to help me move this baby along. I know I am still a few weeks away, but seriously.. the sooner the better. Do any of you have any "tried and true get this baby out now!!!" methods you can share?? I would LOVE to hear them!

Oh and there is no way in H..E..Double Hockey Sticks that I am drinking Castor Oil again. Holy smokes. That stuff sucked. It didn't help that we were living with Brauns parents and they were all sitting in a room right outside the bathroom watching a movie either. Gosh.. what a horrible night. I made Braun drink it with me so he knew what I was going through and it didn't even do a thing to him. Anyway.. never again.

Hey!! I was just looking at you blog and I had to leave a comment on this post. I had my lil girl 2 weeks early and what had helped me was..... I got massages every week, I'm also a massage therapist so I know accupressure points that can induce your labor naturally.SO I would tell my husband where to hold and rub them everyday. I also had walked a lot, I don't know if you have heard about walking the curb but I did that. Just make sure your husband is holding your hand while you do it cause I actually fell trying to do it by myself!haha! Hope one of these will work for ya and GOOD LUCK!!

Ok here goes!!!
So I went in for my 36 week visit on a monday, I wasn't even at a 1. I had been taking about a week before this raspberry female toner herbal tea once a day, its healthy for the female parts or something, but anyway, its truly said that it has herbs in it to cause your uterus to contract therefore, putting you into labor! I wasn't taking it 3 times a day though like it says to, so I up'd the dose from that day on to at least 3 a day, my doc also told me that really the one scientifically way to induce is to get jiggy, b/c ya the sperm also causes your uterus to contract, we did it like 2-3 times after my appointment, the final night being the night before I went into labor the following morning.
I swear by it over and over, I know it was because both of them. When I went into the hospital that Thursday and I was dialated to a almost a 5!!! seriously 3 days was all it took cause mon. I wasn't even a full 1!!
You can get the tea at any store I'm sure, I got mine at wild oats though.
whew!!! Good luck! Now for that I deserve a big freebie and not have to win the drawing by luck, cause I'm not ever lucky!

Go to Chilis and eat their chips and salsa! (this one makes me laugh because it sounds so ridiculous... but hey its worth a shot!)

I've never tried anything to bring the babies early. But to answer your question about why they have taken me early with both kids...it's because I have low amniotic fluid. So, my doc would watch it closely (with lots of ultrasounds) and when it got to a dangerously low point, that's when he induces me.

Holy cow! I am with you on this one! I am SOO ready to have this baby out of me!

Sounds crazy, but castor oil actually does work, but your body has to be ready to have the baby in order for it to work. I took it about 3 weeks before I was due, and nothin'. I tried a week later, and I was in labor within 2 hours, and had that baby within an hour and a half after I went into labor. Same thing happened on my next baby. I tried it about 2 weeks before my due date, and I went into labor within a couple of hours. But like I said, your body does have to be ready to have the baby, otherwise, you'll just have contractions on and off, and you just wont dialate. It has worked for me and for my sis. :)

I amen the above comments... gettin' busy is a SURE FIRE way.

My mother in law always tells me to take raspberry pills... you get them at any nature store. I think it works a lot like the raspberry tea.

I have a fool proof way, I go into my appointment and ask my doc to pull out her appt. book. She strips my membranes tells me to go home & have sex & if that doesn't do it to meet her in labor & delivery in the morning to break my water & start the pitocin. Within a few hours the baby is here. I love it! Everything is planned & I am always ready.

The Perkins Family said...

HAHA....um...I agree with the very top comment. I can honestly say that THAT right there is probably WHY I went two weeks early with Emmet. So...on that note...NOW that Braun is home from his little trip..get in that bedroom and GET ER DONE!!!

You can't have your baby before my christmas party miss. Keep that bun in the oven a little longer! =) I am so glad you had a bunch of new posts, it gave me something to do AND we totally missed you on the cruise! Let's play soon!

*LAYLA and AUSTIN* said...

BUT if you really want this little peapod out (and you will still come to my party of course) ask Danika about the pressure point on your foot that literally puts you into labor (braun can do it even!).
