Monday, October 24

Baby is trying to decide if he wants to come out right now. I've been having painful contractions 5-7 minutes apart since Thursday night. What is that ... 80+ hours? But who's keeping track?
Needless to say I'm a bit wiped. With a heck of a lot more appreciation for women under my belt. Every mother on this earth is SUPER. WOMAN. Let's all cross our fingers that baby makes up his mind soon. Cause I am seriously considering breaking out the castor oil. And I never thought I'd say that.

You are super woman too. And you're almost there!!!!!

October 24, 2011 7:51 AM

You are in my thought's and prayer's Syd during this time.... I know how painful it can be!!!! I know baby want's to meet his Mama, I bet this week he will be here!!!!!! Hang in there, it is almost over Beautiful!!!!!!

October 24, 2011 7:51 AM

You can do it girl :-) Thinking of you!!! X Mandy


October 24, 2011 7:51 AM

You can do it! It's all worth it. YAY!

October 24, 2011 7:52 AM

Ahh poor Syd! Don't forget pineapple and raspberry leave tea....as well as some hot baths:)
Remembering you in my prayers today! Can't wait to see his cute face!

October 24, 2011 7:55 AM

My one year old just pointed to that belly picture and said "Mama, baby." Weird what little kids know. It'll be over soon dudette. Babies come out, Mama's regain control of their body, everyone is tired and everyone is happy. Soon that will be you. Tired, happy and holding your babe.

October 24, 2011 7:56 AM

You're in my thoughts! Baby will be here soon!


October 24, 2011 7:56 AM

You're in my thoughts! Baby will be here soon!


October 24, 2011 7:56 AM

Ahhhhh!!! I seriously can't believe you're already having the baby!!! Time sure flies. Good luck, you two!! Seriously excited to meet the little guy. :)

October 24, 2011 7:57 AM

You'll do great! And an almost sure fire way to get that going strong is some seriously cuddling, if you get my drift ;) Worked like a charm for me when I was ready to have my baby girl!


October 24, 2011 7:57 AM

Can't wait!!! So excited!!


October 24, 2011 7:58 AM

If you want that baby out...have sex!!! I dealt with contractions from a Friday evening to Sunday night and finally we had sex and boom...I was in full on painful labor and I had a baby soon after.

October 24, 2011 8:03 AM

My doctor told me sex does the trick. About to get nerdy here: I guess sex releases the hormones that start labor. It's better than castor oil! Good luck! That little guy will be here in no time!

October 24, 2011 8:03 AM

I have to agree with Kathryn :) It worked for all 3 of my kids! How many weeks are you?

October 24, 2011 8:04 AM

Good luck! Try to enjoy this last little bit with your hubby... there's no turning back. :)

October 24, 2011 8:09 AM

wee! Come on baby!
You've got this. Sending good vibes your way

October 24, 2011 8:11 AM

Ew. I've heard castor oil is disgusting, so let's all just pray for baby to come out soon and save you from the ickiness.

October 24, 2011 8:18 AM

love this picture!!

October 24, 2011 8:21 AM

Pretty sure your 80+ hours is the longest I have ever heard of...

October 24, 2011 8:22 AM

I'll say a prayer for your and your wonderful husbsand!

I am so excited you're almost meeting the baby.

October 24, 2011 8:22 AM

Yes, sex and a hot curry are two methods which i've heard work. It's so exciting! almost time for the hardest and most wonderful day of your life - good luck and remember to just go with the flow x

October 24, 2011 8:24 AM

oh girl...so soon!!! I have loved seeing your journey and can't wait to meet the little man!!

October 24, 2011 8:24 AM

Can't wait!!!!

And i think i know what you're naming him :)

does castor oil really send you into labor?

praying for you!

October 24, 2011 8:25 AM

I'm the same way and contract for weeks before baby comes. Clary sage essential oil changed my life this last labor!! Went from a six to a baby in an hour. And when you're going natural.....the quicker the better!!!

Good luck!

October 24, 2011 8:27 AM

Soooo excited for you! Can't wait to meet your little one!

October 24, 2011 8:27 AM

Wishing you a smooth delivery from here on out! Here's to hoping he decides to grace you with his presence very soon!

October 24, 2011 8:29 AM

!!!!! so excited for you! Praying that all the work you've put in so far will pay off an you little man will be making his entrance very soon.

October 24, 2011 8:29 AM

eep! so exciting!

c'mon little man! get your cute little bum out here and greet us already!

October 24, 2011 8:30 AM

Same thing happened to me. Loads of contractions before active labor actually started. I decided to just go to the hospital and I got them to break my water to really get things going. After they broke my water, things picked up real fast. Good luck! Also, if you're not using contractionmaster.com, you should be!

October 24, 2011 8:31 AM

oh my gosh!! hang in there mama!! hope baby comes soon!!!! :D

October 24, 2011 8:34 AM

Oh darling! Do NOT use cator oil. :) It will just give you a different kind of cramps (if you know what I mean)and doesn't necessarily put you into labor. I speak from horrific experience.
You are super woman! You have been through this pregnancy with such grace, you make the rest of us look crazy!
Good luck!!

October 24, 2011 8:34 AM

wow, almost there I can't wait to see him.

October 24, 2011 8:35 AM

Raspberry tea :)

October 24, 2011 8:36 AM

Eek! So soon! I'm praying he comes quickly and easily! Good luck super woman!

October 24, 2011 8:36 AM

oh goodness. good luck though. you're almost there! it'll be so worth it in the end :) can't wait to meet baby and new mommy and daddy :)

October 24, 2011 8:36 AM

I'll pray for you, hope your baby boy will join you soon!

October 24, 2011 8:37 AM

Sending lots of happy thoughts your way! :)

October 24, 2011 8:40 AM


This sounds like what you might be going through... Though Annoying, these contractions are doing something! Getting that little baby closer to being born. So kick your feet up and practice your breathing :) I'm sure you are, anyway!

I did take the recommended castor oil dose out of the Hypnobirthing book with baby #2 about 12 hours before he was born- so I don't know if it was a coincidence or not, but it happened! I even taped myself drinking it, because I thought it would be so comical, but it wasn't even that bad when mixed with OJ, and it's just like a tablespoon or something...Don't drink too much at once or you'll be sorry!!! Good luck, and keep listening to your Rainbow Relaxation.. The first time you really go into labor can be intense, because you've never felt anything like it, but if you can keep breathing, you can do it! I'm so happy for you :) :) Good luck!!

October 24, 2011 8:41 AM

After my daughter was 20 days late I broke out the castor oil. She was born within a day. Terribly nasty stuff though. I recommend mixing with a smoothie. You'll be a great mommy! XO

real girl, real body fashion:

October 24, 2011 8:44 AM

Good luck! I know nothing about childbirth, but I can safely assume that you are rather miserable right now. I can't wait to see that little baby! I'll be thinking good thoughts for both of you and your family.

October 24, 2011 8:45 AM

Best of luck and you're in my prayers today!

October 24, 2011 8:46 AM

Don't you still have 3-4 weeks until your due date? Your babe needs all the time you can give him with staying INSIDE your belly. No matter how uncomfortable you are. These last few weeks are the worst for you, but best for him! When you hit your due date, bust out the castor oil if you want, but before, no point.

October 24, 2011 8:53 AM

Eeeeew, castor oil is soooo gross. and it can make for a very gross (poopy!) labor. Fortunately, I know from a friend's experience and not my own:)
Don't do it!

October 24, 2011 8:56 AM

Oh gosh the excitement !!! Doesn't seem like two minutes ago that you announced the pregnancy :D how time flies !
I'm sure you guys will be a fabulous mommy and daddy to the little one and I'm sure he will be here before you know it. Keeping you guys in my thoughts xoxo

October 24, 2011 8:58 AM

Good luck with the contractions and labour if the little boy makes up his mind! Remember that you have the strength, courage and wisdom of whole womankind within you, and the love and good wishes of all of your friends, family and blog readers.

October 24, 2011 8:58 AM

Keeping my fingers crossed for you! How exciting!!

October 24, 2011 8:59 AM

Hang in there! Can't wait to meet your little man!

October 24, 2011 8:59 AM

So awesome! You must be close!

I am 38 weeks and keep tricking myself into thinking today is the day (like, every day I think it will happen on THAT day). Other than some minor cramping from time to time, I really have nothing to go on!

October 24, 2011 9:00 AM

I'm so excited for you!!! What a wonderful part of life. (Believe me you'll think the same thing after it's all over!! I didn't when it was happening either!) You'll make it. You'll do great. And you'll be so happy you went natural! Congrats!! I'll be checking back soon to see if there are any updates. :) YAY!!

Digger ~xoxo~

October 24, 2011 9:01 AM

If you take some Melatonin (about 8mg from the health food store) it will help you to sleep (naturally) - you need your energy for labor...and every labor that I've known to go like yours made for a faster delivery.


October 24, 2011 9:05 AM

Keeping you and your growing family in my prayers. :)

October 24, 2011 9:07 AM

I know this is totally TMI, but instead of the castor oil (which will totally just give you major stomach upset...) try s-e-x. I was almost two weeks past my due date and NOTHING was happening down south - I called a midwife I knew and asked about the whole castor oil thing. She told me not to do that because it would just send to me the bathroom, but to try having sex instead (she also said, and I quote, "and if you can reach the 'Big O' it will be even more effective...")There was def nothing sexy about it, but I went into labor the next morning! Who knew?! Good luck!!

October 24, 2011 9:08 AM

i feel your pain! before my baby girl came i tried eeeverything...spicy food, sex, red raspberry leaf tea, acupuncture and lots of walking uphill. within 24 hours and after 12 minutes of pushing she was here! be careful with the castor oil, though i have heard it can work i have also heard of no baby and lots of looong trips to the bathroom.:( good luck! so excited for you!:)

October 24, 2011 9:08 AM

Awwww. You are in my prayers. I hope baby decides to come out very soon.

October 24, 2011 9:11 AM

Castor oil really does work when your body is ready! That's how I got #2 here. Drank 1/4 c. at 3 in the morning. Started labor at 5 AM and kiddo was born at 8:30 AM. Nasty stuff but it's over quick.

October 24, 2011 9:11 AM

good luck!
you are so strong!

October 24, 2011 9:17 AM

Praying that you do have him soon!!! So at last you can meet him!!!!

October 24, 2011 9:23 AM

Omg! I'm so excited for you, ever since you told us you were having a baby I've been waiting for the day, hope everything goes perfect, send you a big hug!

October 24, 2011 9:27 AM

dont do the castor oil!! haha i tried it and it was the worst. Didnt bring on contractions, and just made me feel so sick for like 24 hours. good luck!

October 24, 2011 9:28 AM

Poor you...Hope he makes up his mind soon. I like that:Every mother on this earth is SUPER. WOMAN.
Mine is :)
Keep Growing Beautiful♥ (Cause You Are!)

October 24, 2011 9:29 AM

Good Luck! I hope everything goes smoothly. So excited for you and Tyson to meet your little one!

Eliesa @ Good Day, Sunshine

October 24, 2011 9:30 AM

So close!!! Good luck!

October 24, 2011 9:30 AM

Ahh I am so excited for you. Good luck syd, can't wait for his blog debut. :) .


October 24, 2011 9:31 AM

Good Luck! Baby probably just wants to see the new nursery his Papa worked on over the weekend. We are waiting too and it is a strange kind of limbo.

October 24, 2011 9:31 AM

You are almost there and everybody is cheering you on! Stay strong, super woman :]
Best Wishes!!


October 24, 2011 9:35 AM

I just read your blog and every time you make me feel, that it is time to have my first baby also!:)I should talk about that with my boyfriend:)

Greetings from Estonia!

October 24, 2011 9:36 AM

ohhh i hope this next post is about a baby boy and a healthy delivery!!!!


October 24, 2011 9:36 AM

best of luck to you guys!!!!praying for you and your baby,x

October 24, 2011 9:42 AM

I am so happy for you and Tyson! And am praying for a smooth delivery and healthy baby boy! After you hold your baby you will feel like Super Woman too!

October 24, 2011 9:46 AM

What a cute belly! Come on baby!

October 24, 2011 9:52 AM

And now you'll be joining the fleet of super women! Best of luck to you guys!


October 24, 2011 9:56 AM

GOOD LUCK! I cant wait to see your little guy!

October 24, 2011 10:01 AM

good luck! The pain will be worth it, I promise!

October 24, 2011 10:07 AM

GOOD LUCK!!!!! :)

October 24, 2011 10:08 AM

Ah how exciting!! I have no advice for you, at all. My little one shot right out, but I can tell you that it's all worth it once you get to hold that precious bundle in your arms! Hope little one decides he's ready to leave the comfort of mommy's belly soon, so you can meet him!! Congrats!!! :)

October 24, 2011 10:08 AM

how very exciting. best of wishes to you and the family!

October 24, 2011 10:09 AM

how exciting! good luck, you will be fine! it is so worth it in the end!

October 24, 2011 10:12 AM

Can't wait for baby Poulton!!


October 24, 2011 10:19 AM

Oh wonderful! Relax, listen to your body, and forget the casor oil...it's nasty and doesn't really work. Also remember, you can do this, your body was made to do this, and it'll never get more painful than you can handle (that last one is for Tys to remind you of ) :) good luck!

October 24, 2011 10:23 AM

Ohhh mama, I hope you are comfortable soon!

October 24, 2011 10:31 AM

Good luck! I'm sure everything will be ok, if he decides to stay or come out! Positive thoughts are going on your way :)

October 24, 2011 10:39 AM

I would say "no" on the castor oil. I nannied for an OB and she would come home from the hospital muttering about the mess castor oil makes on the delivery bed. She said spicy food, pineapple and sex do the trick without the mess!
Good luck!

October 24, 2011 10:45 AM

You should listen to Alicia Keys' Superwoman!!! Totally timely. Hang in there! Praying for a safe delivery!!!

Check me OUT!

October 24, 2011 10:51 AM

You are so smart not to go in too early. I had the same thing happen and my water finally broke. Even with my water breaking it took my baby a lot time to arrive. She definitely didn't want to come out. It's nice riding out as much as you can at home.

- Sarah

October 24, 2011 10:53 AM

i'm sure you are about ready to have the baby come!!!
Hang on there. Hopefully it turns into something real.


October 24, 2011 10:55 AM

Come on baby! Make an appearance!


October 24, 2011 10:57 AM

Oooh... PLEASE don't use castor oil!! It'll make you have the runs - bad - and during labor, that's the LAST thing you want... trust me. :-/
I curb-walked (heard of it??) and it put me into labor BOTH times. Walk around your neighborhood with one foot on the curb and one on the street. It jostles that baby right into place and def. gets things going. Good luck!


October 24, 2011 11:01 AM

Soooo excited for you! You ARE super woman!

October 24, 2011 11:03 AM

good luck!!!

October 24, 2011 11:04 AM

Hang in there girl! You can do it!

October 24, 2011 11:08 AM

Don't take castor oil! A doctor once told me that it will give you REALLY painful contractions but won't actually start labor.

October 24, 2011 11:09 AM

Hang in there, I know you can do it:)! Ahhh this is so freaking exciting! Please try to post something that says "I am on my way to the hospital right now" when the time comes... even if it's crappy haa.

October 24, 2011 11:16 AM

aw, i'm just so excited, because this means he is that much closer to making an appearance and i think i speak for all of us when we say we are just so stinkin' excited. the first post about baby poulton is going to have hundred of comments!! keeping my fingers crossed he makes an appearance soon! :)
xo TJ

October 24, 2011 11:18 AM

Best picture ever!




October 24, 2011 11:22 AM

OMG! How exciting! He's totally worth the wait :) Hope he makes an appearance soon! I know you're ready for him to come out already :)

Best wishes!

October 24, 2011 11:25 AM

This is so exciting! I hope everything goes well.
And just remember billions of women have done it before and you can too, super woman!

Eek how exciting! Sending good thoughts!

October 24, 2011 11:31 AM

i did castor oil with #1... just set up camp in the bathroom.. and don't drink it straight up.

October 24, 2011 11:34 AM

Hi Sydney! :-)

I just came across your blog today and am loving it so so much...SO much in fact that I just read back like 4 months worth of posts while at work...priorities ;-)

Your blog is amazing..so inspiring. And you remind me of Rachel Zoe the fashion designer/stylist....she just had a baby and looked absolutely FABULOUS the day up until birth...heels, cute clothes, the whole shebang!

i cant wait to see your lil babe and im sure he will make his debut soon enough!

thank you for your blog...I truly love it.


October 24, 2011 11:57 AM

You belly is ADORABLE! I can't wait to see him.

October 24, 2011 12:02 PM

aahh!! I hope baby makes his entrance soon 1. for your sake and 2. because I can't wait to see the little man!!

Gosh-I can't believe it's already here! Seems like just yesterday you announced you were pregnant!

October 24, 2011 12:04 PM

I had a similar experience with my first. Actually, that was 5 years ago today! I was super exhausted from days and nights with no sleep from the constant contractions, but once he was finally in my arms, it was totally worth it. Good luck Sydney, I am so excited for you!

October 24, 2011 12:15 PM

SO excited and happy for you!!!! He is going to be beautiful and you guys are going to the best parents ever!!!! I can just tell... Good luck!!!

October 24, 2011 12:34 PM

Beyond THRILLED for you and your family! Can't wait to see pics of your little one...when he makes his way into the world! xo Melissa

October 24, 2011 12:34 PM

DON'T do castor oil!! it is the worst thing ever!!! Hang in there Syd!

October 24, 2011 12:35 PM

I'm due in five weeks and feel your pain! I'm so ready to meet my baby but want her to cook as long as she needs to! Good luck! xo

October 24, 2011 12:49 PM

Castor oil will not help.

October 24, 2011 1:08 PM

Good luck to you... hope everything goes smoothly. My midwives recommend castor oil if you're past your due date. I hear it sucks, but it works! Also, it "cleanses" your system in advance and actually prevents messes during pushing. Haha, graphic!

October 24, 2011 1:10 PM

Hey Sydney! I've been following your blog for awhile now and it has been so fun getting to read about your pregnancy; it (almost) makes me miss being pregnant. I'm so impressed that you are trying to have a natural birth. I had one and it seriously was the best, most spiritual experience I have ever had. You can do it!!! I hope the little babe decides to come soon and that the whole process goes smoothly for you!

Oh, btw...I met your mom and sister at TOFW in Richmond. I recognized your mom from a picture you posted of her. She seemed ecstatic to be a first time grandma, as well she should be, that babe is going to be so stinkin' cute!

All the best,

October 24, 2011 1:18 PM

best of luck!

October 24, 2011 1:39 PM

I cant!!! wait!!!

October 24, 2011 1:53 PM

oh everything will be fine !:
am keeping my fingers crossed for you !

October 24, 2011 1:56 PM

I am no mom -- but castor oil is the way to go! My mom had 5 kids... and castor oil DID THE TRICK. Mom also has friends who did it and loved it.
Praying for yo, your husband and your baby!

October 24, 2011 2:08 PM

You can get through it!! just keep going. it will be all over soon and you will have a beautiful baby to show for it. Congrats!!!!

October 24, 2011 2:28 PM

The same thing happened to me with my pregnancy 5 months ago (gave birth to twins) I had contractions all weekend and my water broke that Monday. You might want to go get checked to see if you are dilating.

October 24, 2011 2:43 PM

How exciting! It will be over before you know it. Good luck to you!

October 24, 2011 2:50 PM

don't do it! the castor oil that is- i've heard horror stories that you poo the whole time...so sick.

you can do it...it hurts like a mother but it's only temporary...if you can make it through transition you can make it through anything...transition is quick and pushing is the most amazing thing ever. however he comes into this world he has a loving eternal family to welcome him...he's totally got it made! ;)

October 24, 2011 2:52 PM

two things:

first, when i was in labor and mine were 6 minutes apart the midwife told me this was the longest time and that it could last a few days. lt was only 13 hours for me...but being that you already have had it for a few days!!

second, everyone i know who had prelabor that long....the real thing was only like an hour.

so either way, you should be good!

October 24, 2011 2:54 PM

Good luck! Can't wait to see your cute little guy!!!

October 24, 2011 3:04 PM

You'll get there! My little man took awhile too. It is so worth it!!

October 24, 2011 3:04 PM

Good luck sweetie!!!

October 24, 2011 3:34 PM

Good luck! I hope Baby makes up his mind soon!

October 24, 2011 3:39 PM

Sydney, I was looking for your FAQ page but couldn't seem to find it!! Do you mind posting a link or something to it? Thank you so much!
Hope all is well with Baby E.

October 24, 2011 3:53 PM

Ahh! I'm so excited for you! It's almost time!!! :D

October 24, 2011 4:39 PM

You are so right, every Mom is super woman, including you!!

October 24, 2011 5:10 PM

October 24, 2011 8:03 PM

Aww, no. Bless your heart, honey, he will make his appearance in due time. ;) Sending happy thoughts your way.

October 24, 2011 8:25 PM

Thinking of you, momma!! Hope that peanut decides to make his way out & you get to meet him soon.

October 24, 2011 8:56 PM

AHHH! So excited for you lady! Best of luck!

October 24, 2011 10:36 PM

Praying for you!!! It's almost over, and all of the uncomfortness and pain will be forgotten as soones you see his gorgeous little face. Hang in there!!!

October 24, 2011 10:58 PM

My best friend just had her baby boy! Good Luck and many blessings!

October 24, 2011 11:16 PM

Oh Syd! I can't believe it's already here! Contractions are so freakin painful no? Good luck my darling. You're gonna be one stellar mama.

October 24, 2011 11:20 PM

im a midwife and I can honestly say my best advice to you is 'go with gravity' gravity is your best friend right now, helps get that wee head down to where it needs to be to hurry things along :) Throw in some baths too! all the best, cant wait to see his wee face!xx
