Ok… I decided to wait until now to try to push labor along. I’ve been having stronger, more frequent Braxton hicks contractions and a lot of pressure. No one knows if any of these methods work but I figure it can’t hurt to try. I started my morning by rubbing the pressure point that is three fingers above your inner ankle bone. The exact location can be found by googling or watching YouTube. Now I am sitting in a warm bath. Next I plan on going to the grocery store to not only walk around but grab some “labor inducing” items like raspberry leaf tea, something spicy and pineapple. Ill blog more after this to let you know my progress.
Ok… It’s now 10am and I’m having horrible pains in my back and on my left side. Almost feels like round ligament pain that comes and goes. Doesn’t feel like my contractions with my daughter. Hmm?
11am: Well I had some raspberry leaf tea and pineapple. Contractions anywhere from 5-15min apart.
12:30-1: ate lunch. Contractions slowing down. Currently bouncing on a yoga ball
2:00: no more contracting. 😦
Contracted on and off all night but nothing consistent.
