37 Weeks! Ready to Cross Finish Line!

So, it could possibly be about two weeks from today! Wow!!! BUT, if I'm not dilated enough (crossing fingers) then it will be three weeks. Fine, I'll have to live with it. :) I've been religiously sitting on my excercise ball at home trying to get things moving along in there. Davis still hasn't really dropped yet and it's so frustrating. I really do not want the dr. to have to do that next Monday. Doesn't sounds very pleasant. I've also bought different herbal teas. At this point, I'll try anything. I read about a castor oil cocktail, but I think whoever wrote that is crazy. Castor oil, something else, and vodka! Vodka!?! As much as I love me some vodka, I don't think so. It's only 30ml, but still. I'll stick to bouncing on the ball for now. We also bought a rolling pin to take to the hospital and it has worked so wonderful on my back. I've actually needed a rolling pin so many different times for baking, but never had one. Didn't know I had to go get pregnant before I actually went and bought one! Haha

Is it sad I've already looked up ways to get things moving and I'm only at 30 weeks?

I've read to try spicy foods, eggplant parm and good old stand by of walking.

Good luck!

I hear the Castor oil cocktail is horrible! I vote NO WAY! lol I hope things move along quickly for ya! I know the end is sooooo uncomfortable. There were some pressure points our Lamaze instructor showed us but told us not to press em unless you were READY. Maybe look those up? If your really ready..... ;) You look great!

You look great!

As to your comment on my post:

Thank you! I have gained 16lbs overall, but I gained 40LBS with my first pregnancy. My secret? Chasing an almost two year old constantly, carrying his whopping 30lbs around and him stealing what little food I have time to eat! :D

Needless to say this pregnancy has been completely different this time around!
