Thanks heaps. Do you know if its better to break open the capsule and rub the oil on your cervix or if i should just make a pinhole in a capsule and insert the whole thing?

I will try inserting the capsules tonight. Im in that much pain already and am just ready to have my little one here. So hopefully im close enough for it to ripen my cervix enough to put me into labour lol

I am 40+3 I have been inserting EPO every night since 37 weeks. I have been putting 3 in (but 4 last night - wear a pad as it can get a bit messy). I just put them in whole as the capsule just dissolves. I had a stretch and sweep today and my midwife said I was 3-4cm dilated and she could stretch me to 5cm!!!!! She also said my cervix was amazingly soft and favourable. I am sooooo impressed with the EPO (so easy and seems to work well) I am hoping my baby comes tonight. Good luck!!!!!
