    suppositories & pessaries are the best ways of getting medications into your body without having to take them orally. I've got friends who make up suppositories for their kids when they need to take tablets, I do the two of them for herbal preparations I use. So basically all Ryn is doing is taking a EPO pessary to help with bringing on labour.

    I am with you there Relle, I do go ala naturale, just it's always 7 days over & it is So annoying (Especially when we are due to fly overseas a month after bubs is due!!)

    WE can hold hands (well not when inserting EPO!)

    ROFL - yep we will Tracey!

    I went spontaneous first time - hated it - Induction 2nd time and loved it, so going spontaneous again is very daunting thought for me!

    I was opposite went into labour with Maddy then it stopped wetaers had broken 2 days earlier & she became distressed so they induced me (it was OK, but I didnt know any better!)
    Spontaneous (all day long 3 mins appart gentle contraction all day) then at night it got more intense into hossy just after 10pm, Indah born with no pain relief at 12:31am, it was a way better experience (now I know better)

    I even attempted to eat a curry last night, that's how upset I was! (I did suggest if Liebling comes today we could call him Logan Josh... DH didn't like that plan.)
    hee hee...Logan Josh...*LOL*

    What about acupuncture, have you tried that?

    LMAO, girls, you really are coming out with all the ideas now!

    What's a cervix supposed to look/feel like? I'm fairly sure mine was OK last night before I put the stuff in but may be dilated a bit now... does it feel like a sort of fat, stripy rubber ring thing that has a small hole in the middle?

    Yep - small hole in the middle sounds promising.

    Logan Josh - very cute but I can imagine your DH's response ROFL
