    Default Acupressure stretch n sweep

    So I have started acupressure with a specialist to help bring my body into natural inducement early labour as I'm being induced medically at 38 wks and want to avoid another 2 day horrible labour so now as of 35wks I'm having acupuncture and pressure point techniques I will be getting sns from 37 weeks if I'm dilated otherwise if nothing works I'm left with the hospital inducement ..
    I'm inserting 2 evening primrose oil capsules every night to help soften m cervix and prepare it for labour this inky 3rd baby it my body just doesn't seem to go into labour on its own so that's why I'm trying everything I can.

    So want to know if either of these has worked well for you for being induced or helped both with going into labour or a quick delivery etc would live to hear your thoughts on this.

    how are you finding the EPO? I have been doing it for about three days and have found that I have effaced a bit (well from what I can feel anyway). I have been putting in two 1000mg caps at night.

    Acupuncture , epo inserted and taken orally, raspberry leaf tea and 2 s&s and ended up needing chemical induction.
    Also dtd lots, ate pineapple, took long walks and various other things to speed it up

    With ds1 I did acupuncture, long walks, lots of dtd with orgasm, epo, clary sage baths, raspberry leaf tea in capsule form. I had false labour for a few nights but had to get induced at 39 weeks as my blood pressure spiked. I wanted my son out as I was taking blood thinners my whole pregnancy but had to stop at 36 weeks and I was worried this would affect placenta flow. I also had two stretch and sweeps - 1 at 38 weeks and one on the day I was induced. Anyway because of blood pressure they broke my waters (was 4cm) and was given the drip. Ds was born in 2 hrs 20 mins so I think it was worth it.

    K so here's to hoping it helps sounds like everything else really unless your body is ready /favourable of that exact method u can't force it unless of course chemical inducement or c sec otherwise the waiting game continues I've herd good things using epo but then again could just be luck I'm hoping it helps anyway I'll continue using it and doing everything natural I can't think of.

    I also woke wet but just oil wet lol I found using a normal sized pad at night better then the liner it wasn't long enough and it went on my pants I find it so difficult to get as close to cervix with belly in the way...
