Upstaged on my own blog!

Yes, its true. Our computer is absolutely positively one hundred percent d.e.a.d. So here I am, possibly in labour as I type, at the local library. Hope I dont get amniotic fluid all over their nice chairs...

The stretch and sweep yesterday was WEIRD. I mean...really...a wanding is bad enough, but having some strange chick's gelled-up finger shoved WELL up your cervix and twizzling round in there is just a bizarre experience I could do without. It was uncomfortable rather than painful, but mostly just plain weird.

The amniotic fluid level has decreased, and the placenta has started to calicfy, so despite my protestations and pleading to be allowed ot go two weeks past due, the Boffins insisted on no more than 8 days. Thus, we have a booking for Tuesday April 4 at 3pm to have even more gel placed on my cervix to get the whole shebang going. But 1cm dilated is a start, so lets hope my cervix keeps doing its thing and we have some Spudly action this week.

Given my desire this morning to scrub not only the saucepan lids but the saucepan bases as well...until they SHONE...I suspect that perhaps I wont need the induction after all. We have Raspberry Leaf Tea, pitted dates (naturally high in oxytocin, apparently) and I shall consume both with abandon. I will also follow Lala's advice and try evening primrose oil up my twat. In the meantime, the waiting is torture.

So...looks like there's a baby on the way. How the hell did that happen?

Unless we can get another magical machine that will allow me to communicate with all you internets, any further updates will come via that Slurry who thinks she's a minx now. Pshaw! She WISHES.

  1. Sex sex and more sex! Orgasms and the hormones in sperm can help bring on contractions. That and a lot of walking. I swear these two things combined help bring our lily into the world fast and easy...

  2. Castor oil. That's what I heard works... but then... castor oil comes from beavers... which as you may or may not know... is the national symbol of Canada. Should I send you some together with the maple syrup??

  4. YES, tons of sex, long walks and evening primrose oil capsules up the twat twice daily. I tried raspberry leaf tea and thought it tasted revolting and didn't think it did much but that was me I guess. Good luck with trying to bring it on yourself.

  7. Little tip: have the sex BEFORE the castor oil. Otherwise there is That Risk of Upchucking All Over Loved One.

    Happy scrubbing, my dear, and may Spudly come SOON.

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
