    So today I have cleaned the bathroom, washed up and tidied kitchen, did a bit of hoovering, sorted last of babies clothes,did a load of clothes washing, been on wii fit, taken evening primrose oil, raspberry leaf tea and now having a bounce. So far all I got is back ache and more watery discharge. Baby has been kicking away so doubt anything will happen soon. :-( Hubby cooking curry tonight and poss going for a walk if I'm up for it.xx

    Keep going!. But remember to take it slow. You might need a bit of energy when it comes to the baby wanting to come.

    The only thing I didn't try with my 4 year old was sex! She was 11 days late, and I had to be induced... With 2 pesseries!!!

    I had hot hot hot curry, raspberry leaf tea, pinapples by the gallon, cleaned the windows, washed the floors, hoovered Nd dusted, went for a walk up and down a steep hill, went for a bumpy car ride with my friends. I could not get her out!!!!!
    Good luck! I hope you have more luck!

    Yeh, I've heard bad things about it so won't touch the stuff. I've heard it gives you a bad tummy. Just trying to think of anything else I can do?xx

    dont try the castor oil :shakehead: although our mums have all used it, as it is dangerous as it can cause the baby to open his/her bowels inside you which increases the risk of them swallowing the meconium and cauing problems and if it shows when ur water breaks ur likey to have a section to reduce the risks!! try anything else but this xx

    Yeah I'd rather suffer!!

    This is what I have tried -
    Pineapple (at least 2 whole fresh ones a day!)
    Aubergine
    Oregano & Basil
    Sex
    Dancing on the Wii
    40 minutes walking at fast pace on treadmill
    Hot bathes every night
    Raspberry leaf tea (now drinking 4/5 cups a day)
    Evening Primrose (orally and inserting)
    Cleaning the house

    My midwife swears by sex and pineapple, but that's the only ones she believes in! X x
