40 Weeks and Counting

Today I shared this photo on my Facebook page.  It was a joke really, but it turned out to earn quite a few more likes than I had expected.  Only like 999, 875 and then, hopefully, she'll appear.

Now I'm quite sure that child's mother will indeed quit smoking if the goal is reached (sure, sure) or whatever else people seek out likes for on social media, but my primary goal was to let friends and family know that there's no baby yet and I've still got a sense of humor about it.

Today was the baby's due date.  I'm fortunate in that I'm not miserable, but we are anxious and excited to meet Baby #3.  So if rounding up some likes on photos encourages her, I'm all for it.  

My older children came much sooner, so this is uncharted territory for me.  I'm doing my research and reading up on inducing labor naturally.  Some I've tried (mostly walking) and others I've dismissed.  Castor oil?  If the side effects are worse than the condition, I'm not going there.  

Do you have any tips for inducing labor?
