At this point in my last pregnancy I was a blogging crazy person. I blogged religiously, but then again I only had one child to look after and she was almost 3. There is a big difference this time around in my energy level and my responsibilities. A preschooler and a toddler demand much and I have little to give. Of course the discomfort level is more intense and started earlier on this pregnancy than the last one too. All I can think about it having this baby; today would be a good day.
Friends, family, and random strangers are fantastic at giving advice on how to bring on labor. These are things that have been suggested I try:
- long walks
- jumping on a trampoline (the very idea sends my body reeling in pain)
- ingesting Cod-liver oil, or maybe it was Caster oil, Motor oil?
- tractor rides
- 4 wheeler rides
- mowing the lawn
- hot fudge sunday, I kid you not
I'm sure there are others you can suggest and depending on how dramatic, I might give it a try. And don't worry. My blog audience is on the top of the list of notification as soon as the baby comes -- I won't be Twittering about my labor, but my absence from blogging doesn't actually mean I am dealing with a baby. It just means I am bored and uninspired.
