hey woman, I was just wondering if you have had any luck with your contractions? I did try the rasberry leaf tea the night before last and yesterday i woke up cramping and then was getting contractions throughout the whole day. they werent really regular but i was able to time them and tell how far apart they were coming. I think the closest they got were 15 mins apart. they felt sort of like braxton hicks but a little more stronger and lasted longer, some had slight pain, you could feel them through your back too. I dont think the begenning contractions are what we were expecting them to be (you know the screaming ones). I would put my hand on my stomach and it felt really, really tight all over, and i was able to tell it wasnt the baby, even though when i got really tight I could see her little but sticking out, lol. So try the raspberry tea, i drank it hot, it did work. At least i think it did, because i didnt drink more yesterday and havent felt any thing yet today, so im gonna go make me some more now. Oh yea I had drank two cups, and put two tea bags in each ( i like my tea powerful, lol). so if you give it a try let me know how it goes for you.

wow Dez that's awesome news!! lol I'm definitely going to try it, I'm still curious to experience an actual contraction.. (funny how I'm wishing for pain eh? lol) Where did you buy the tea??

I just got the box of tea bags from the grocery store but i put double the tea bags in my cup, dont know if that made a difference. You could feel slight pain with the contraction, but i dont think its what we were expecting, (the super painful ones that usually dont start until active labor) I think thats what it means when they say they become stronger and longer. I finally figured things out, its not just they way you see it on tv, lol. I know thats how i was expecting things to be.

I tried the tea!!! lol well.. I just started drinking it like an hour or two ago.. on the box it said 3-4 cups daily between meals.So I'm gonna try it for the next few days and see what happens. My stomach seems to feel tight.. possibly braxton hicks.. and the baby is moving around everywhere now lol

well good luck, let me know if you feel anything. the only thing is it sure helped me feel contractions, but im still pregnant,lol. well my dr. is gonna strip my membranes on monday so hopefully that helps get me going. this time of pregnancy is hard, knowing that the baby is so close to coming, but we dont know exactly when.

does stripping the membranes hurt?? I wonder if my doctor will do it for me if I ask

Do you have msn messenger or anything??? it's so much easier to chat on something like that than to have to keep checking posts lol

I do have instant messenger, but i have to get my bf to set it up for me on my laptop, we are doing some remodling so our computers are packed away (had to turn the computer room into a nursery) and he is stingy with his laptop, were everything is set up perfectly. why dont you give me your IM and as soon as i can get signed in I will message you. I heard that stripping the membranes can be painful, they go in there with there and with there fingers they seperate the water bag from the uterus, it causes you to lose your mucus plug if you havent already, and hopefully get your labor going. I heard sometimes it can work as far as putting you in labor that day, to not really doing nothing at all. its worth a shot though because i really want this to be over. I bet if you asked your dr. he would do it, mine didnt want to do anything until I was at least 39-40 weeks. Do a google search on stripping the membranes it can give you some more information about it. and i will message you as soon as i get it set up
