    Sounds gross, but an enema may help bring on contractions...

    Could you do a DIY jobby? Also means no poop while in labour!

    But perhaps also call the midwife to check.. I have only 'heard' it helps (on 'One born every minute').

    I'd be careful with the enema - you don't want to lose too much fluid and dehydrate yourself. Maybe safer to eat a spicy curry and let that flush you out!

    Atropos - get off BH and go into the bedroom!! BH won't bring on labour

    Sarelou - book yourself in for a manicure or facial or something nice...you can almost guarantee you will go into labour an hour before your appointment!
