OK, it's that time......I'm basically ready to try anything to get labor going naturally. My doctor will let me go to my due date and no longer before inducing. This is primarily due to complications I had with #8 going over due, so I'm not arguing too much with him. Anyway, I'm walking about 2 miles everyday, trying to stay as active as possible, drinking lots of red raspberry tea and eating spicy foods. So far, nothing is helping too much. Tomorrow is grocery store day, so I'm going to load up on eggplant, mango and pineapple.......all, I've been told, can trigger labor. Please, let me know if you have some secret to getting labor going. Oh, I did try castor oil with my fourth and it did nothing but send me to the bathroom way too much, so I'm not trying that again. I have been using red raspberry leaf tea since baby #5 and I feel that it mostly just gets my uterus in shape and I hardly bleed afterwards. I've been drinking a cup a day but am uping it now to 2 cups a day (that's about all I can manage.) Well, I'll keep y'all posted!
