Started having contractions at 8 this morning. Went from 9 minutes apart to 3 minutes within two hours so decided to head to hospital. I know I typically labor fast due to my son being born in 3 hours from start to finish so didn't want to take any chances. My cervix was fully closed at last doctor appointment on 11/09/16 . I decided to do the scalinis eggplant parmigiana on Friday night . I ate half of the dish very large portions at restaurant I felt contractions later that night but nothing major. I would say ladies if your close to your due date go and try or make the eggplant parmigiana & drink the raspberry leaf tea!
