I am due March 2nd (9 days and counting!!)...we had our Ob check yesterday and she told us that we are now 70 % effaced, 0 station and 1 cm dilated. Could this be hope for labor soon? I have been having contractions that are getting stronger , but not always consistent. She told us to try inserting Evening Primrose Oil soft gels into the vagina (2 per night) and this could help the cervix to thin out more. She also suggested drinking Red Raspberry Leaf tea. Has anyone else heard of this or had luck with it? Our next appointment is Friday the 27th, I hope we don't make it to that appointment!!
