    Default Help me get this baby out!

    I'm soooo incredibly impatient to meet this bubba. I know natural induction doesn't really work unless you are ready, but help me pass the time and hit me with some suggestions on how to get things moving.

    I've been taking raspberry leaf, evening primrose oil, and rubbing clary sage on my belly. I do lots of walking every day (to wear the toddler out).

    Default Help me get this baby out!

    The night before I had dd I did everything I could think of. Who knows if it worked.
    So that night I ate pineapple, had acupuncture, had sex and pumped. Went into labour at 2:30am.

    Good luck!

    Meditation! Tune in, all alone and focused, and talk to baby about how ready you are to meet them. And feel ready. Both my babies arrived the day after crossing the last thing off my "to-do" list...

    As a mum of 2 very busy young bubs.... Enjoy this time. Don't get me wrong, it's wonderful and fantastic when bubs comes and introducing siblings, but enjoy this time. Take a long nap, have a 4 hour shower. Have silly uninterrupted fun with your little possum. Things will never be the same again (in a great way X)

    By the way, I was power washing the weeds out of the driveway when I went into labour.... Wouldn't recommend it.
