i read about it. where did you get itt ? let us know how it works. i also read that during labor it calms you down and help dialate. good luck
i have been taking the fresh pineapple route, no results yet...let us know how the oil works!! :)
i tried mango they say it work like pinaple a little easier to cut, no results either
well no signs yet :( lol but hey only firstday of trying it , i have read that it can cause contractions etc :) i got it off ebay only a couple of pounds :) compared to £8-£9 in holland and barret and boots,by the way it does say ladies on the bottle that its not for use in pregnancy as the strong effect it has on the uterus but i googled this and it seems ok..:) i will let you all know, also i have tried yesterday my TENS machine on the acupressure points on my leg,back and han,d it's sopose to get the stimulating hormone going or something but nothing yet:(
HOPEFULLY WE WILL ALL HAVE OUR LITTLE MONKEYS SOON LOL :)
LABOR DUST :)
well no luck with the pineapple, but then i was reading where you had to eat TONS of it, and the heartburn that i get just won't let me do that!! lol i am just frustrated...here i am almost dilated to a 4, 50% effaced, i have lost my mucus plug and STILL these contractions are not regular!! ugghhh!! lol
Does it have to be fresh pinapple? Or can it be the canned stuff?? I have a few cans of the tidbits that I put on my pizza but if I want fresh I need to go to the store. It acually sounds really good right now, so it wouldnt be a bother to eat it, and hey, maybe it will work, lol!
it has to be fresh , i also read it could be mango
im not sure if it was because of the clary sage oil i used in the bath and on my body but at 2.30am last night i started to have painful braxton hicks,they hurt in my back my belly i felt pressure and had 2 pee a thousand times,, my back hurt that much that i had 2 use the TENS then at 7.45am they just vanished....... what a wind up :(:(:( im due tomorrow has anyone had 6-7 hours of braxton hicks constantly then they just went an no labor etc ...???????
i also had pretty much the same thing...in fact, i had everyone on baby call (got a lot of ppl. very crabby and tired today from being up all night waiting lol) i posted to your question you put up too, but now that i am woke up, i will share what the hospital told me last night....the doctor said that even though i was having 4-5 PAINFUL contractions in an hour, unless they were 8-10 minutes apart that they would just give me fluids and send me home until i got to the 8-10 minute stage. well this morning they just stopped all of a sudden and now i just have horrible diarrhea a contraction like every hour or so and that's it!! (sorry if it was tmi) did you call your doctor at all?!? how often are you getting contractions now?!?
ok, an update on what i have tried, ladies!! lol
1.) LOTS of sex
2.) Raspberry Tea
3.) Bumpy Rides
4.) Jumping Jacks
5.) Nipple Stimulation
6.) Hot Baths
hope that isn't T.M.I for everyone!! LOL anywho, i have a very good friend who is a massage therapist who is going to try the acupressure points for me today!! anybody else having luck with any other "wives tales"?!?
hey at least it gives us a laugh and preoccupies our minds!! ;)
Well I am 36 weeks and pregnant with twins, and I still havent went into labor. I am having hip problems, I can't sleep, and I am having heart burns. I am so ready to have these babys. I have ried everything from, clary oil, castrol oil, to spice foods. I am not forsure what I am going to do next.
any of my pregger friends still out there?!? LOL i feel like i am going to be the LAST one to deliver!!! :) thought the real thing was happening last night....woke everyone up at 3 a.m., but after a hot shower and relaxing in bed the contractions eased up and are now back to being really erratic, etc. my family is starting to resemble zombies from being on "baby call" LOL uggh...

thanks, ii have my app tomoorrow i will talk to her if sh can at least strip my membrans:) i do hope so. good luuck
I just read what the hospital told you. I've got a good one for you. Last Saturday night contractions started about 6:30pm and by 11pm, they were hurting pretty bad, coming between 2 and 4 minutes apart, and lasting 30-75 seconds. I called our hospital and she told me that until they were consistently THREE - yes, THREE - minutes apart, not to come in. I guess they want me to park and try to deliver in the elevator. I was sure that was it, but I was wrong. I've tried the things you have, with no results. I'm tired and hurting everywhere now.
i have been having contractions through the night for a couple of nights, it lasts a couple of hours where my contractions are regular and painful, then nothing happens. at the mo i am about 4cm dilated and about 80 percent effaced.
my obstiatrician gave me a recipe that is supposed to help regulate contractions and bring on labour.
1 heaped teaspoon of ginger powder
1 heaped teaspoon of cinnemon powder
and 1 heaped teaspoon of cloves powder or 10 actual cloves
mix it with 1 litre of water and boil for 15 mins, then u have to drink it gradually over a period of 2 hours, DO NOT drink more than 1 litre per day. do this for 3 consecutive days, if nothing happens then miss a day out and try again. u can mix it with fruit juice to make it taste a little better. it does taste horrible, i tried it on its own and it isnt nice, but im going to try it tomorrow with some sort of juice. i dont know for sure if it works but my obstiatrician said it should work if my body is ready. it doesnt start contractions u have to be experiencing them already, it just regulates them, therefore speeding up the process of labour.
anyone who is having these contractions that are regular for a few hours then go away, just to let u know you are indeed in early labour, but unlucky for us it is dragged out. some people only have this part for a few hours we are suffering for days. good luck.
i am only advising people who are past their due date or baring on their due date and have been told an induction is inevitable to try this. my obstiatrician says it is much better than induction.
Ok so with my first born son I had taken castor oil (regardless I threw it up)but I also had lots of sex and when my husband and I did that I would lay down instead of getting up right away well i did that one night and my water broke not thinking anything about being close to my due date (by a couple hours ) i didn't think much of it cause it was not much i thought the baby kicked my bladder and I peed a little so the puddle was no bigger then probably a small thin bottle around I went and took an extremely hot bath (I had no Idea my water broke) like hot tub hot and got out bout a holf hour later we were headin to the hospital and my labor only lasted 3 hours start to finish lets just say sex is best along with walking and hot baths just relax and don't think about it because it stresses you out and that postpones everything
Hi! I've got 3 days left, I've lost my mucas plug and been having pains every now and again for the past couple of weeks. I bathed with clary sage oil mixed with lavender oil this afternoon and massaged clary sage oil onto my belly. I'm hoping something happens by tonight because I'm sooooo fed up now! :( babies heads also engaged (been like it for about 3 weeks now). Just wondering if there was anything else I could try? I've also done the sex,walking and rasberry leaf tea and my little bundle is'nt budging!
