    decided to go for it.....

    so going to have 1 cup a day for the next week or so and then at 35 weeks will up to 2 a day and then start taking EPO at 36 weeks...

    at 36 weeks i am officially going full steam ahead with operation get boo boo out...so EPO and bouncing like mad and lots of sex..if it takes a week, well then boo boo will be fully cooked :)

    cos its a big one...i just have a feeling it will come early.....i have always thought i would give birth around middle of feb........dont know why i think this, be interesting to see if my gut instinct is right!!

    i did see a spiritualist about 6 years ago, who got loads right btw....and she said i would have my first child at age 35.....i turn 36 on the 10th feb....so lets see if she is right...lol xx

    I have a similar game plan! Will start taking rlt capsules at 32 weeks increasing as the weeks go on, epo a bit later, and then at 36 weeks I'll start trying everything! Spicy food, pineapple, sex, nipple stimulation etc! My mum went 2 weeks over with me and my brother... Really don't want to do the same so I plan on helping and encouraging the little guy as much as possible lol :) x

    I started rlt capsules at 35 weeks. I also started epo from 37 weeks. Midwife said no proof epo does anything but rlt does. Seems like each midwife I speak to has different opinions. I thought I was gna go early but now not so sure. Currently 2/5 engaged so bubs is very low down. :)
