I have been having irregular contractions since Sunday. Yesterday I had had enough of it!!! Since I was dilated to 3 and 50% effaced I figured that my chances of Castor Oil working were pretty good. I called my midwife and gave her the heads up. No effect what so ever!!! Which is good and bad. I did start having more intense contractions and more consistently having 5-6 an hour. I had none of the effects of the Castor Oil which was great b/c with Peyton I had them all :o(

So Cindy took the boys all night, just in case you know. We met with the midwife at the Birth Center at 8 just to see if anything was going on and it was working like it should. NOTHING!!! NO CHANGE!!! So disappointing.

I got sent home with orders to take a warm bath and some Tylenol PM so that I could get a goodnights sleep. I laid in bed for two hours with horrible contractions every 5 min....They must have started spreading out because I fell asleep and didn't wake until 8 this morning.

This little one is stubborn. Now it is just wait and see b/c I don't think I can drink another ounce of that awful stuff!!!

You Turkey!
You said no castro oil!
I can't help but laugh...
Onery little turd... Kaikai was onery about coming out and look at him- he was ANGRY boy for 6 months. Let her come out on her own time and maybe she won't hold a grudge...

After having contractions for 6 straight days I was uncomfortable and couldn't sleep. I would have figured out a winner through a drawing. Last night was the first night I have been able to stay asleep without tossing and turning!!! I actually felt rested this morning. It's not like it worked anyways!!!

heather my dear
who ever told you that you would feel rested when 40 weeks pregnant with three pre-schoolers
sorry don't mean to sound unsympathic but nobody feels rested at this point ;0)
hope you have a restful night
