my sister has 5 days to go in her pregnancy and has for the last 2 weeks been experiencing extreme lower back pain and a consistent ache in her pelvis area which now she says has her pelvis feeling like it is badly bruised. We have been up to our local hospital on 2 previous occassions thinking "it was time" only to be sent home, on the last visit she was having contractions but they had stopped and we were sent home. We went to a midwifes appointment today and the midwife did an internal exmination and told us that her cervix had soften and thinned out. Because of the pain she's been in for the last 2 weeks and her midwife had said her cervix had soften and thinned, does anyone think its a good idea to try and see if we can bring on the labour at home before heading to the hospital??? And if so does anyone have any ideas in how we can do so???

uncomfortable with 5 days to go

I tend to think no. Maybe just do some walking and spend time sitting on a fit ball which puts the pelvis in the right position.

I did so many things to try and bring on labour. Walking, 4wd, sex, raspberry leaf tablets, evening primrose oil, fit ball... DD came 1 day overdue. I also had 2 stretch and sweeps as my cervix was thinned and dilated, first didn't work, second one on due date did. (Well I'm assuming so). I called DH home from work after 7 hours of contractions one night, they lasted 15 hrs and then nothing.., its true what they say though - you KNOW when real labour starts. I know how hard it is waiting those last few weeks/days in pain and anticipation, tell her just to ride it out its almost here (if she doesn't slap you lol) and to trust her body and baby. Best of luck x
