Two days ago, I tried taking castor oil. I can't say it was an absolutely awful experience, though it's not one I'd soon repeat without good reason (seeing as I'm still pregnant forty - eight hours later).
Yesterday I went to the gym. I ran a mile on the treadmill and two on the elliptical, and used the thigh adductor/abductor machine. And then I made spicy jambalaya rice for dinner (with extra red pepper). It felt good to work out, and the rice was delicious. However, I'm still pregnant.
Today I worked a full shift, ate the leftover jambalaya rice, went to the gym (1 mile on the treadmill, 2 on the elliptical), and am two slices from finishing off an entire pineapple. While I've been having a great deal of pressure and a great many contractions all day, I'm still (you guessed it!) pregnant.
And something tells me I'm still going to have to go to work tomorrow.
