    Not yet. I'm 2-3 cm
    dilated fully effaced. See the Ob tomorrow, looks like she might want to induce me a week early so I'm going to try get permission for my midwife to break my waters at home so I can hopefully get my homebirth!

    Altjough I'm about to go for acupuncture now so maybe it'll start tonight !

    Lots of sex and lots of colustrum pumping. Sex needs to include orgasm. The Semen only primes the cervix, it's the orgasm that gets contractions started.
    Pump heaps. It was definitely without a doubt pumping that tipped me over the edge last time

    i dont know if it helped but at 40 weeks i had a stretch and sweep done.
    on my actual due date i walked. alot. for 3hrs straight.
    That night i felt strong braxton hicks and some cramping (i just thought i was tired).
    i started to go into early labour the next morning (had a show), i went out for dinner, mild contarctions and all about 8mins appart lol no appetite what so ever though!
    Went into hospital 3am as contractions were baaaaad!
    i was only 2cms lol
    Had bubs that night, 2 days past due date.

    It was my 2nd bub but first time going into natural labour

    Awww, gee you got to reach the big O?

    In that case, I'd suggest a party for one...unless your DP is happy to help out with some nipple stimulation

    Okay I've had sex + orgasm for every day since 37 weeks.

    Caz- I've been on the breast pump daily but maybe I'll step it up.

    I've had 4 stretch and sweeps now.

    Just had a beach walk and I'm starting to niggle a bit hopefully the acupuncture worked.

    Thanks for all the suggestions

    I had a double electric pump, so it did both boobs at the same time, and I'd pump for about 15 minutes at a time 3-4 times a day when I was trying to get labour started
