No. No labor.
I know many of you are following along on Twitter and/or Facebook, and I'm doing my best to provide regular updates of, well, all the nothing that's been happening there. We do *plan* to Tweet the birth, as much as possible. (Please be sure to follow @Ish in particular, I don't know how much tweeting I will be able to do myself...)
But let me just add for any of you who AREN'T on Twitter or FB or whatever, if you scroll down on this very page and look to the right under where it says "I TWITTER"
-- wait, hold on, here:
well, that's where my tweets are.
Not that they are, by any stretch, uh...interesting. But at least you'll know that something is going on without me having to write yet another blog post that says a whole lot of nothing.

Thanks for all of your suggestions on how to induce labor. I would far rather one of these tactics work than have to be induced through drugs in the hospital, etc.
However, I feel compelled to say that I don't think any of these tactics will work if my body isn't ready to start the process. And, while I can't really speak to this for sure, I just don't think it is.
BUT. Well. Feeling as unready (bodily speaking) as I do concerns me, given that the doctors are already speaking of inducing. So I have decided to schedule an acupuncture appointment for tomorrow morning. Because you know? I'm pretty sure that will do something. If it doesn't send me into labor directly, I suspect it will at least bring my body to the next stage of readiness.
Should be an eventful 4th of July weekend!
Oh, and by the way: I haven't posted much about this at all, but the first month I went to see an acupuncturist -- I was hoping she could help me get my wonky cycle "worked out" -- I got pregnant. So, right. "Worked out." HA!
I decided to continue to see that acupuncturist through my first two trimesters. I have no idea if it's the acupuncture that made those first two trimesters so incredibly easy (and don't want to count my chicken before it hatches), but it certainly didn't hurt. And if tomorrow's session "works," you will be hearing me sing some serious acupuncture praises indeed.
