Waiting, waiting, waiting...gotta keep on waiting...everybody's waiting...RAWHIIIIIDE!
okay that made no sense - but I'm going NUTS here at home.
Still pregnant - all my contractions come at night and then go away - we've tried almost EVERYTHING that I've found suggested online (yes, Joanna and April - even #11 - hee!) and the only things I've bypassed are the herbs (although I did drink raspberry leaf tea) and the castor oil...bleck.
I'm walking as much as possible, once hubs is home - and even been going to the beach because I read that walking in soft sand, being as difficult as it is can really help. I always seems to start really good contractions - but then they don't stick around.
Last night, Carie came over and we looked up all these tips for doing Accupressure, and it was getting my contractions cranking along pretty well - but then around 1:30am, it all stopped.
I'm getting frustrated because it's exhausting to have all these contractions and then feel like we're getting nowhere, you know?
I know that this baby will come when it's good and ready - and there must be some REASON why it's comfy and cozy in there still....I'm just anxious and uncomfortable...and I can't believe I'm still pregnant at this point.
Amazing how the entire pregnancy seemed to have whizzed by and now these last weeks are just draaaaagging. Everyone told me that would happen, ha!
I have a question for all you parents (or non-parents, if you have an opinion I wanna hear it!) out there:
What are your thoughts/opinions on the whole "to vaccinate or not to vaccinate" debate? I know someone personally who has an autistic child and swears it was the vaccine that did it because the child was speaking and then after the vaccination stopped talking and was then diagnosed. I think knowing this person and their child has affected my thoughts on the topic - and I've been reading alot online...but despite reading articles and whatnot, I think the best opinions and advice come from other mothers. So what are your thoughts, anyone?
