There are several hospitals in my area that will do water births. I've also heard that being born directly into water is significantly less traumatic for the little tyke. Keep in mind the baby has been in a liquid environment for the last 9 months getting Oxygen and nutrients through the umbilical cord. Another few seconds under water is not going to hurt.

Well, inflation... (and no, I won't ask your age).

A C-section birth costs quite a lot more than that... a few thousand dollars, back in the mid 1990s.

I don't know about stork deliveries, but a brisk horseback ride to the hospital might get things rollin'. [Big Grin]

I know. [Wink]

I have actually gone walking, but all of the hills around here really wipe me out so I don't go very long/far.

Perhaps its time to move to jumping jacks and trampolines. Or maybe lie down on a merry-go-round with your feet outwards and have someone spin the MGR...

Who can blame the kid for not wanting to emerge? I bet the womb is a great place! You can float around, kick the walls, there's plenty of food, etc...

...I can't remember my womb experience, but I bet I LOVED it. [Big Grin]

Any updates!??!

You could always do what my stepmother threatened to do when her first baby was late...go out to the mall and literally "shop 'till you drop." [Big Grin]

First babies are usually late anyhow...but here's hoping that downloading commences soon!

Still pregnant. On the plus side, that meant I got to see Serenity yesterday. [thumbsup] (I never saw Firefly, but I thought Serenity totally rocked! Go see it everyone! [Big Grin] )

I had an NST today, and everything looks good. I have another pre-natal appointment on Thursday. If I haven't delivered by then (I'll be 41 weeks, 4 days) they will probably want to schedule an induction. Doctors start getting edgy if you go past 42 weeks. So in a week I will either have a baby or know exactly when she's going to arrive. Just a little bit more patience everyone. (Look who's talking. I want my baby NOW darn it! [cry baby] )

(Edit: Hey, 3000 posts. W00t! [Applause] )

Peebs,

Open a jar of Garlic Head and wave it around in front of your belly. I know it seems like torture, but the poor little child will crave it so much she'll come out to meet her folks in a very natural way.

Go ahead. Try it. I'll wait.... [Roll Eyes]

Yep...thing is, when the baby is fully formed, whether he or she is out or not, he or she will start doing what babies do best...excrete. And, polluting the womb environment, will die. [weep] And quite possibly take you along for company. [Eek!]

So, if the kid's that late and they want to start a pitocin drip...I'd listen.

Babies don't always pass meconium when they're past due. Most of the time when that happens it is due to fetal distress. The major concerns after 42 weeks are that the placenta will start to deteriorate (rarely a problem in reality), or the baby will be too large (unlikely given my family history). As long as you're being monitored regularly there really isn't a reason to induce just because you're past due, especially since due dates are, at best, an educated guess. I think I'll let them have their way this time though because I have a limit on how long I will have medical coverage and I need to make sure that everything I need done happens before it's gone.

I came across an ad for The Girlz Club while proofing a set tonight. They offer Prenatal Belly Dance among other things. [Wink] Check out the site if for nothing more than seeing a really interesting site design.

I guess inducing is the best option. Giving birth is very expensive and paying that out of pocket would not be fun nor make the experience any easier knowing there is a bill waiting for you.
