Kori said to tell the doctor these magical words, "Doctor I am having a lot of physical discomfort and pain." I had an appointment today and told the doctor this and she has scheduled me to be induced on the evening of the 4th.
Thank goodness! I thought she was going to make me go another week!
Effectiveness: 8 (I would have given this a 10 had the doctor scheduled to induce me tomorrow)
Tomorrow Ben has it off. I think I might try Hannah's advice next and go hiking.
