    We have been DTD every day, I've been taking raspberry leaf tablets since 34 weeks, pumping, nipple stimulation, bouncing on fit ball, have started going on nightly walks.... And had an s&s yesterday and that didn't do anything for me yet.

    Ahhh c'mon baby!!!

    walking did it for me. i walked for 3 hours (shopping) on my due date. I kept getting painful stitches the whole time. The next day we went fishing and out for dinner. contractions started at dinner. Had bubs the following night.

    Raspberry leaf tablets, evening primrose oil, using breast pump, bouncing on fit ball, rubbing clary sage oil into my belly.

    Who knows if they worked or not, but bub arrived at 39+2.

    I'm sympathising with you. Keep telling dh that the baby has a giggle everytime someone mentions if it will happen soon or not haha

    Book a flash restaurant or something expensive that needs to be prepaid. Guaranteed baby will rock up to ruin your night.

    On a serious note - anything where you are upright and baby is pressing on your cervix. Nipple stimulation. Sex. Orgasms. And apparently eating a pineapple.

    I did all this, as you might remember MCB, but baby still quite late as i am afraid they arrive when they want to! So please try it all, but it might have no effect whatsoever. I know you need her to come early for a specific health reason, but try not to worry too much about it and let nature take its course hun

    Dd I didn't do much so was 7days late then 30odd hrs of labour 14hrs from 4cm to out
    Ds on the other hand, I did raspberry leaf tea, walking, fitball, more walking, sex etc. was also sent home from midwife with a express kit (little syringes and sterile jars) so also expressed some clear looking colostrum.
    Dd arrived on due date, I arrived at hospital after waters broke at home at 11am and he was born at 729pm. Prob would've been a lot quicker but his shoulders got stuck (9p10oz).

    So the long way round to saying it but, what ever you do might not bring on labour, but it might make your labour quicker and easier

    Like previous posters I did EVERYTHING to induce labour- I gave up when I was a week overdue then suddenly a couple daye later went into spontaneous labour- and although I cant say anythint worked for sure it was a ten times better birth the second time round. I got to the hospital and had bub 30mins later! So I recommend doing it all anyway
