Today is Joshua's official due date, and we are anxiously waiting. And by "we" I mean mostly "me." Renee is just resigned to a "he will get here whenever he gets here" sort of space.
Of course we are getting tons of labor-inducing advice. I am beginning to think that, for the most part, going into labor gets attributed to whatever a particular mom was doing at the time. In reality, I think a lot of it is coincidence more than cause-effect.
Castor Oil - probably works some of the time, nasty all of the time.
Black Cohosh - Interesting herbal. Probably lots of medicinal value.. definitely has effects, not all good.
Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll - Nice WebMD post about natural inducers including both of the above...
Basically, other than medical inducement, we don't really get to choose. And that is OK.
Although if I wasn't already bald, I might be pulling my hair out.
