Indigo this thread might help
Thanks everyone. Ill be giving EVERYTHING on that list a shot. Im being pressured into induction at 38wks due to IDGD. My last birth was quick, easy and relatively painless so i really feel medical induction will make it longer, harder and a hell of a lot more painful so id really like to go into labour naturally.
I'd negotiate for twice weekly stretch and sweeps from 37 weeks. I was determined not too be induced. I had 6 in total that plus all the other prep work got me into labour at 39 +2
I'll be asking for sure. I have to see them three times a week from 36wks. I won't make it to 39wks though, I've got IDGD so they want to induce at 38wks. So I'll only get 2-3 s and s in.

This would be a very desperate measure but...
I have heard that if you prick open an evening primrose oil capsule and stick it up your hoo hoo this will induce you. EPO is very similar to prostaglandin so this makes a lot of sense!
I did that you put 2-3 up by your cervix at night.. It won't put you into labour but it'll soften/ripen your cervix
