Quoting Melissa Eager:" Get on your knees and put your head on the seat of your couch or a chair. Should help relieve some of the pressure from the baby to allow you to fart. :-)"
Quoting Heddur:" Fart. "
Quoting Two Princesses:" Getting the farts out is the issue lol. ETA: Are you passed your due date? My heart goes out to you lol. Congrats "
Quoting Heddur:" I know what you mean - it gets so bad that its beyond farting. Its like throughout your whooooole system and it sucks. and yes - overdue - 5 days. "
Quoting Two Princesses:" I already am on a steady diet of Zofran and Zantac. Guess I'll have to add gas-X. Plan on asking ... [snip!] ... to happen with you being over due? Are you being induced? My OB doesn't ever like letting someone go over due for some reason."
Quoting Heddur:" Yeah, my doctor says he wont let me go past 10 days overdue, but I dont think Ill have to wait that long. She'll come on her own, Im sure. Ill do whatever I can to avoid an induction."
Quoting Two Princesses:" I feel ya momma. I was terrified of being induced with my now two year old. Have you tried maternity Acupressure to get things going?"
Quoting Heddur:" yuppers, we've tried the thumb spot, ankles and top of the shoulders numerous times. Also tried spicy ... [snip!] ... tried spicy food, walking, squats, down on my hands and knees, birthing ball...ugh. I was induced with my 8 year old...not fun."
Quoting Two Princesses:" So I assume the pressure points and nipple stimulation have been atempted as well? None of that stuff ... [snip!] ... Cervix remained unmoved and closed. but that pressure point stuff has worked for some I know. Do you know if you are dialated?"
Quoting Heddur:" not so much the pressure points. Ive been trying nipple stimulation, and it brings on contractions, ... [snip!] ... it. Althou once i step foot in the hospital in labour, i know that will change. thats why im going to go in ready to push. "
