Still hanging in here, no baby yet.  I did have almost two hours’ worth of 5-minute-apart contractions the other day, but nothing of importance since.

At yesterday’s appointment the doctor gave me the go-ahead to try some of the old wives’ tales to bring on labor.

So far I’ve had chinese food, pepperoni pizza, been walking up and down stairs instead of taking the elevator, etc.  Tonight we’re having spicy Thai for dinner.  If you have any other folkloric remedies, bring em on!  I’ll try almost anything at this point.  Except for the one that tells you to drink a whole bottle of castor oil – that’s where I draw the line.

In the knitting department, I finished the scarf on Wednesday night, and I’ll give it a bath and a blocking tonight (crouching/squatting is another thing that supposedly gets things moving).  Photos to come.  And now it’s back to the toe-up socks until further notice.
