Still waiting..

Even though the little baby that's been flying on the left side of our blog has flown off the ticker, still no Nugget. The midwife guessed our cherub was 8lb 10oz right now, so we'd like to get things moving. Our attempts in evicting her has included:
-Eggplant with extra oregano and basil
-Chinese food (for the MSG, unfortunately we realized it was an MSG-free restaurant when the food arrived)
-Walking...Walking...Walking... Circling the neighborhood... Going to the park... Curb walking...
-Evening Primrose by mouth and up Nickie hoohoo
-Booze, per the midwife. Nickie had a margarita yesterday. It didn't seem to do much, but it tasted damn good.
-Doing, well, you know.... Not as fun as it sounds at this point..
-Boob tweeking. Again, not so fun.
-Membrane stripping yesterday
-Even more walking

The midwife recommended the "midwife cocktail" of OJ, vodka and castor oil; we'll save that for true desperation. Nickie was 1cm dilated and 40% effaced yesterday. It's a start.

We'll keep trucking along. If anyone has any tips, please let us know!



  1. No tips as we both had scheduled c-sections, but we are hoping she decides to come soon and is smaller than the ultrasound guessed!!

  2. I can understand all too well how uncomfortable Nickie is, and hope that little Nugget makes her way into the world soon!

  3. Argh! I keep checking in for a 'baby is here' post! I hope you're all enjoying your time w/your little one by now!

  4. I have just downloaded iStripper, so I can have the sexiest virtual strippers on my desktop.
