I have gone two weeks over with all four of my babies. 1. TWIDDLE YOUR NIPPLES (for about 20mins it begins to hurt but sets off painful braxton hix which ripen your cervix and in one case with me set me off into labour and broke my waters.) 2. CASTOR OIL yes i did it i went into labour the following morning. I took under advice from my dutch homeopathist at 42 wks, 15ml in a liittle fresh pineapple juice, i had a large an painless bowl movement but no pain or cramping, took around 8pm and woke up with mild contractions the midwife was due and examined me i was 3 1/2 cm dialted. So i found it very gentle and effective. And i didn't poo myself in labour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3. SEX the emzymes in sperm eat away at your mucus plug. (put your legs up the wall afterwards to make sure it puddles around your cervix). 4.PINEAPPLE.. eating plenty fresh pineapple does the trick as it has some chemical reaction in your body that produces oxytocin. WHATS YOUR ADVICE?????
