The bible: The REAL powerbook @ 10:23 am

Just got back from the doctor's office and Angie is progressing quite well. The baby dropped down so everything is looking really good, we just have to get her having some contractions so she'll dilate and labor will start. We talked a little bit about induction, and we'll probably schedule it for Friday. I'm really hoping that the baby comes naturally before that, but at least now there is some definite light at the end of the tunnel.

My mom works at that hospital so she dropped by to check on us during the appointment. The nurse was asking Angie what we were doing to stimulate labor, "are you guys having sex?" I really wanted to say, "Oh yes we've been having sex all day. I think we had sex about 8 times yesterday, and on the car ride over!" Everyone, and I mean everyone, has told me that having sex can start labor. If only it were that easy.

Now Angie is craving a hamburger, so we may have to do a little lunch thing.

!?! Sex?!?!

I am floored at that! We were never told during my pregnancies that sex would stimulate labor. In fact, we were specifically instructed to obstain from sex in the third trimester because it could cause injury to the unborn child. We were told that the best pre-natal exercise to assist in an easy and quick labor was swimming, and I swam every day of my pregnancy, delivered two weeks early with each child and had the fastest, easiest labors imaginable. Guess things have changed since 1981!!
