How to go into Labor...

Due to my family's tendency to have babies around 37 weeks and always before their due dates I planned to already be holding my son. Well, I go to the doctor for my 38 week appointment tomorrow, and I am soooooo ready to be unpregnant!!!! Since 36 weeks I have been trying to get him and there is no such luck, after my 37 week appointment, where my doctor refused to strip my membranes until 38 weeks, I was determined to prove to her that despite her medical training she was wrong and Charlie is ready to come out. I have walked quite a few miles and on Friday I cleaned and scrubbed the house like crazy, took my dog on a really long walk, got peppermint tea(YUCK), and drank castor oil (more yuck) and some other stuff, ahem, anywho didn't work!! Not a peep, just the regular contractions that aren't strong enough to do anything. Here's to hoping tomorrows appointment leads to a baby!

Sorry my idea didn't work although I think you are stronger than I am I thought of taking castor oil but was never brave enough to do it I am sorry it didn't work! I hope you have Charlie soon1
