    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Just so you know:

    Pineapple - doesn't work even when you eat the whole thing.
    Pressure points - no such luck.
    Sex - many positions with variation in "vigor" produces nothing.
    Nipple stimulation - waste of time...;)
    Spicy food - causes heartburn only!
    Red Raspberry Leaf Tea - Drinking 1 pot every day for weeks...why??
    Walking - Sore back but that's the highlight of it.
    Exercise Ball - fun like a trampoline used to be but does nothing else.
    Stripping membranes - painful with cramping but no labor.
    Talking to baby = talking to wall.

    My "to do" list for this week:
    Evening Primrose Oil
    Induction on Wednesday

    #3 EDD WAS FEB 25..... Yellow Team!

    JMO, but I wouldn't bother with the Evening Primrose Oil. According to the info I've gotten from my OB's office on it, it can take weeks to work, if it works at all.

    Good luck! I really hope LO comes out on his/her own before Wednesday.
