Updated: Dear Pregnant Mom, Your Mail Vanished

I wanted to post with a phone very early this morning. Copied and do not know what my finger touched next thing, the mail disappeared. I must have unconsciously touched a button or something. I spent the whole morning looking for this mail cos from the tone I guess you are a first time mom (inexperienced), who wants to do what is right for you and  baby but mom won't let you and now you seem confused.

From the little I can remember, your mother wants you to dump the car and use public transport cos according to her driving is not good for the baby. She has stopped you from bending to sweep and suggests that your husband helps out but you feel he has been doing great since you got pregnant and now it seems he is over stretched and you don't know how to help out.From your mum's rules, all you need to do now is just rest so as not to stress the baby.

You are worried cos you can't stay in a dirty environment and now you are not expected to bend down and sweep. I know ther…

How I Induced My Labor Naturally

How to induce labour naturally? At 39 weeks, there was no sign of labor, another hospital appointment was fixed for the following week. After 4 pregnancies, the Doctors said I won't be induced for any reason. If by 40 weeks I was still pregnant, that I will have to deliver the baby through Caesarean Section.
When I got home I started my research on how to make baby come before that week. I remembered how at 37 weeks, I experimented on something and suddenly I start getting contractions but quickly stopped for fear that the baby might not be due then. Intact, as soon as I discovered I was carrying a baby again? I started reading up on "pregnancy after 4 kids at late thirties".I knew a few things already. I learnt so many things a woman can do to induce labour, some practical, some incredible. I tried a few, nothing worked and was about to give up when
