No, no baby yet. It's as if she tried her darndest on Wednesday night, but has barely bothered since.
Here's a list of what I've tried to convince her to come out:
-dong quai tea
oh, and begging and pleading and cajoling. oh well.
favorite advice: when i called wednesday night because the contractions were 5 minutes apart for about 2 hours, i was told to call back when i couldn't talk through the contractions. which would have sounded like, "errrrrghhh!" "okay, go to the hospital now" "errrrghhh?" "uh-huh." etc. but it didn't get to that point. i suspect i've trained myself to talk/concentrate through anything, since it's a needed skill when one has a curious little boy at one's side most of the time.
