Thank Goodness it's Friday!

Well, it's FINALLY Friday and it's a BEAUTIFUL day!  I met my friend Sarah for lunch today and she gave me some of the cutest baby gifts!  Thank you Sarah!  I can't wait to start using all my baby stuff :)  While we were at lunch she was telling me about the miracle of Castor Oil and labor.  A friend of hers tried it with both children and said it worked like a charm.  I had heard about it before but was afraid to try it - but we were talking about how I'm not really progressing, etc so I said "What the heck!" I'm gonna try it tonight and see if it gets anything going tomorrow.  I'll try anything if it will make the whole labor / induction process go faster.  Of course there are people who are gonna tell me "Don't do it!" but it's too late! I already bought it ;)  ha ha

My last appointment was yesterday.  Still only dilated to one cm.  The Dr stripped my membranes again and I was in some serious pain last night.  I was thinking "WOOHOO, This is IT!"  but nope - I was wrong! ha ha.  About an hour or two later I was feeling better.  Oh well, it got me off my butt and got me to pack my bag , finally :) 

This evening I'm gonna go out to dinner with some of the other wives, and then come home and pray that this "home remedy" actually works.  I had a dream yesterday that he was here!  I woke up disappointed..LoL.

I'll keep ya'll posted on the outcome of the Castor Oil - I know you're just dying to know all the "juicy" details.  ;)
