just havin' some fun


{this picture was just taken with my honey's phone and sent to my blog}

We really want to post through my labor and delivery so we just downloaded an app called Shozu for honey's iPhone.  Ok, so I say "we" but in truth, I know "I" will definitely NOT be wanting to type any kind of nice calm message while I'm in labor!  That will all be up to my man.  I do think it will be a wonderful birthing journal and I'm excited to have it as a keepsake.

I soo appreciated all the wonderful suggestions to help "get things movin'"!  You guys are great!  I did take many of your suggestions, too!

Some of my faves to add to "the induction list" were:

  • Eat eggplant parmigian-- suggested by Mommara and Debi  (I laughed so hard when I visited the page with the recipe that Debi suggested!  This restaurant claims that their recipe will put women in labor within 48 hours or they get another meal for free.  Their walls are covered with photos of babies delivered after eating their dish!  You better believe I ate some for lunch!!)
  • Reflexology--suggested by Jill  (now to find a reflexologist...)
  • Evening primrose oil--suggested by Simply Dawn  (I won't get too technical about how this one is administered)
  • Acupuncture--suggested by Lisa  (takes a brave soul)
I just had a doctor's appointment and nothing has changed so I'll probably be eating eggplant parmigian for breakfast, lunch, and supper till this baby comes!

Thanks for your kind words on my blog! I've bookmarked you too. . .love your blog. So you're trying to find a way to get things movin'? One of my pregnancies, I added castor oil to orange juice (about 2 tblspns every 3-4 hrs). I googled it to be safe. It's a mid-wife remedy. It worked like a charm! Good luck to you. Look forward to seeing which one was successful. ;-)
