OK MR UNIVERSE

WOULD LIKE TO HAVE BABY NOW
GONE SLIGHTLY MAD
THINK I'M A BANANA TREE
HOLDING PLUTO HOSTAGE
BABY NOW PLEASE
KTHXBYE


Yup - today's my due date (an arbitrary number which has meant increasingly little for the last several weeks anyway). And all the comments of "soon, really!" in the world AREN'T HELPING because every hour feels like a fucking eternity. The contractions are just strong enough to make it really hard to settle into any activity, but aren't actually GOING anywhere.

&@^%^$! Virgos.....

;> First babies have a window of 2 weeks before or after the due date... Hang in there, he's making his own way out!

BTW, I've heard that gentle sex encourages labor...

sex
Doing as much as I can! Though poor Andrei is a bit freaked out at that feeling of invading someone else's living space ;)

Re: sex
I've heard that other, "non invasive" sexual stimulation can help too.

I also read a technique in a fictional story that involved sucking the nipples. I have no idea if it works.

Re: sex
Cohosh will indeed cause contractions... but I do not recommend it as it has been used in older cultures as an abortive. Although I know the fella has to come out, there are less risky ways of getting him to agree ;>

... and fisting makes for great perineal massage.

Are you amenable to "home remedies"? Because my sister had excellent results with castor oil. Sex is supposedly the best inducer, though.

When I got to the point you're at right now,
kasra_c and I drove around until we found
tea involving raspberry leaves, as they're supposed to induce contractions.
Turned out Celestial Seasongings raspberry zinger (i think it was)
worked just fine. 24 hours after starting to chug the stuff,
went into labor for good. ;-)

Of course, the driving around hunting was a good distraction, too...

The obvious solution is raspberry tea and cunnilingus. Worst case scenario, you've gotten some raspberry tea and cunnilingus, and that ain't bad.

I second these suggestions.

On the other hand, I was a first child and I was two weeks late, so who the hell am I to talk?

Then again, I'm a Taurus. Bullheaded through and through. Virgos are anal-retentive, but they aren't nearly as stubborn as me...

Get a prenatal massage and get the person doing it to rub your ankles. My prenatal massage therapist said she would do it at 39 weeks IF I had someone there to drive me to the hospital, and she had a 4 out of 5 success rate. Of course I didn't need her to do it but the offer was there

I hear being really fucking tired of pregnancy may be an early symptom of labor!

I really hope for your sake it happens soon, you sound quite bonkers by now.

Hehehe.

Maybe if Andrei got out his directing voice, and tried to coach the little one out....?

Suckfest, what suckfest?
As much as they suck, every one of those contractions makes your actual, active labor, once it gets going, *that* much easier and *that* much smoother. I hope framing it like that helps a little.

I won't say "soon," because who knows, but I will say that once it's all happened and done, every second will have been so very worth it. All the stress and frustration and waiting and craziness will just melt away into vague half-obscured memories drowned out by baby love. Really, it will. It's a great little magic.

I know exactly how you feel - my son is a Virgo born this time last year and the waiting is horrendous.

But then if I had a cushy warm sack to live in, I wouldn't want to move either. :oP

I agree with the cunnilingus thing. Some sexing will encourage the baby, or at the very least will distract you and be nice. ^^

Hope the bratling comes out soon! Congratulations!
