Attempts at starting labor

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.

  1. Oh gosh! I hope something magical happens soon! Pregnancy massage has done the trick (labor within 24 hours) for 4 different friends on 6 total pregnancies, better than castor oil, eh?
