Not for lack of trying - as I mentioned previously, for well over a week I've had multiple contractions each night that are strong enough to wake me up, plus some during the day. At my weekly OB check-up, this week and last, I am already dialating and effacing, and 2 weeks ago an ultrasound placed the baby at over 6 pounds. Mentally and physically I am oh-so-ready to get this over with, so when the *perfect* timing opportunity came up last night and I went for it... and it didn't work! Castor oil, you failed me. Well, you worked in that sense, but you didn't send me into labor, and that's what I really cared about. Yes, it's still 2 weeks to my due date, but don't be a hater - my body is obviously already ready (dialating, contracting, baby's nice and fat) but it just isn't getting the show on the road so I tried to help it along. And now you really can't hate because it didn't work and I am just as uncomfortably annoyed as I was before, only the timing will probably be terrible.
See how uncomfortable I look?
