We have finally made it to full term!!! This last week has been a little trying with tons of contractions that just don’t seem to be making any progress. It does make you feel kind of bummed but like my mom keeps telling me , “you’re not going to deliver a toddler”.
As for the pregnancy/labor myths…
For each pregnancy now I have enjoyed a cup of Red Raspberry Leaf tea every night. Not sure if it has helped the actual labor but it has helped me calm down late at night.
Yoga to induce labor was the newest that I have tried. And again if nothing else it has definitely made me feel a little bit more calm and relaxed. You definitely cannot put a price on that!
I did not bother with too many of the others such as eggplant parmigiana, pineapple juice, castor oil, etc. When it comes down to it…the baby will come when they are just plain ready!
