    Squat squat squat!!!! (Rolling forward on the fit ball and engaging muscles and focusing downwards... making sure you are very stable though)

    Thanks so much ladies! I so so so hope to post soon and say 'the baby is here' but I keep thinking my god - this baby could be a september baby the way i am going.... That would make me a 44/45 week mumma..... Not sure i could hold out that long!

    Going to have an early night, Nice long hot shower followed by some clary sage tummy rubs and a relaxing lay down listening to hypnobabies.

    The castor oil has certainly got things moving but im not sure if it is doing anything with the bubba.

    Oh i just want to meet the little one, i think it must be a boy (perhaps a mummy's boy)! Or perhaps its just a naughty little girl

    Wow, have just found your thread. You poor thing having to deal with hospital staff like that.
    Just another hint to help bring on labour, nipple stimulation. It can help bring on contractions. Either manually or with a breast pump. I really think this helped me go into labour and it is what the midwife I see recommends.

    I don't understand either! I would not be going against drs advice at this point. You are putting you and your bubs at risk.

    I read something (maybe even on here?) recently that really made sense.

    "Last time we checked, babies didn't have a calendar in there!"

    OPs baby is showing no signs of distress and is probably happily floating away in there.

    We aren't designed to be pregnant forever or else there was a serious flaw from mother nature. Baby will choose its own birthday

    Hi everyone! Had my appointment today with the registrar who was just amazing. Such a lovely lady after what we went through last week.

    I had an ultrasound to check my fluid levels and baby size, all fine there. Not too big not too small and enough fluid for them to be happy. They are willing to monitor me and see how I go.

    I am booked in for CTG monitoring on Thursday and Sunday, then follow up appt on Tuesday.

    My BP was fine, babies hearbeat was fine, internal was fine (although babies head is not down enough to feel and my cervix is still closed). Had a nice cervix massage instead of a strech and sweep.

    It all went very well and we couldnt have been any happier with the outcome. It was agreed that if i was induced today it probably would not have went well since the head is not low enough and im not open at all. I could feel a cascade of intervention being needed!

    So, my induction this evening is cancelled and i am being closely monitored. It Was also agreed that my due date could have been out by around 1/2 a week (i should have been due on 3/8/12 instead of 29/7/12). So taking that into account I am not that far over.

    Thank you all for your help and advice - hopefully there is a baby announcement from me soon.

Even at 42 weeks the risk of miscarriage is lower than it is at 38 weeks- the biggest risk of miscarriage during the last semester is actually at 35 weeks. I don't know any medical procedures or recommendations for women to do anything special that week to avoid miscarriage- and the studies aren't small ones of a couple of hundred women- these are studies that involve hundreds of thousands of women over long periods of time. That is without even getting into the risks involved with induction in otherwise healthy pregnancies.
    It's not rocket science, i suggest you do some research instead of jumping on your high horse.

    Research shows that babies born after 42 weeks of pregnancy are at increased risk of dying before labour or during (to 1 in 10 rather than 1 in 100).
    The placenta has a limited life span and more likely to reduce its life span at this time.
    About 500 inductions are done to prevent one baby from dying. Babies born after this time are at increased risk of becoming distressed during labour, increasing the woman's chance of needing an emergency cs.

    So considering the op isn't too far off the 42 week mark I personally think the dr is being sensible in suggesting an induction and it shouldn't be disputed. I bet if something terrible did happen considering the op decided against drs advice she would be the first to put the blame on someone else... as often is the case unfortunately... Working in risk management I see it all the time

    I'm sure if the Dr she saw today was worried they would have said.

    The baby will come when he/she is ready
