A Silver Lining

Okay, so my doctors office finally got back to me and my doctor set an induction appointment at St. Rose DeLima for Monday at 7:30am. Yay! I feel pretty confident that my appointment will not be cancelled because I have heard this campus is not as crazy busy at the Siena campus. So, I called the hospital to see if I needed to fill out new paperwork because it is a different hospital. They said they would get my registration paperwork from Siena. Then I received a call from someone at DeLima that said I was nowhere in the system and the Siena campus didn't have my paperwork. I went to St. Rose DeLima and filled out all new paperwork, only to find that St. Rose Siena had faxed over the so-called missing paperwork. There is always some drama like that attached to anything involved with me, so I'm used to it by now. I still had to sign new paperwork, so it wasn't a total waste of a trip. Gavin & Tyrone were excited to be in a hospital and kept telling me I needed to go see the doctor. I have a giant coldsore on my nose. So, lets hope my next posting is announcing our little girls arrival into the world. Thanks for all the encouraging comments, I know a lot of you have been through this already.

Mandy, do you know about Black Cohosh, and Blue Cohosh? My midwife had me taking them in small amounts the help me contract. I have some tinctures still if you want them. Or you can get them at Whole Foods, just get tinctures instead of pills. Also, Red Raspberry Leaf Tea works for some people (not everyone). You're probably already walking a lot, so keep pushing yourself, especially with contractions coming. You're doing great! I hope you go into labor RIGHT NOW!! But whenever she comes, she'll be perfect!
Good luck.
