No, still no baby or imminent signs of baby. We’ve definitely reached the stage, however, where everybody feels like 30+ minutes of non-communication means that Bingo must have been born. Which means that I feel obligated to update everybody at regular intervals just to say “Nope, not yet!”
While we haven’t reached the point of desperation yet, we are trying to gently hand Bingo an eviction notice. Strategies for natural induction that I’ve tried include:
-Eating half a pineapple. Did nothing except make my mouth hurt due to a mild pineapple allergy.
-Eating a great deal of spicy food (thank you, Indian buffet). Delicious but ineffective.
-Walking, so much walking. And biking, too! Resulted in a sore ankle.
-The initial probe/exam by Herbal Tea. This was not a full stretch and sweep due to Bingo’s mystery position, but Herbal Tea has suggested one for Thursday/Friday.
Anything that you/your friend/your friend’s neighbor has tried that they claim has worked? I ask more out of interest than anything else, and can’t promise to take all suggestions. While I’m willing to eat pineapple or go for a walk, I also assume that Bingo will show up someday and I’m only up for interventions that require minimal effort/ingestion of unpleasant things.
