    First bub, just waited for him to come. Born 40 + 5

    Second bub just came 39 + 2

    Third bub I booked an accupuncture appointment at 42 weeks to see if that may trigger something, but he was born spontaneously the day before my appointment

    I had a pregnancy massage at 38 weeks which was thought to help bring on labour and I started using clary sage oil on my belly, Lower back and in baths every day. I also tried drinking herbal teas which were disgusting. Bub still didn't come but I got tonnes of strong contractions for a couple of weeks before being induced at 41 lol

    Oh, also went for long walks every day in the last couple of weeks which was so bloody difficult. And tried Dtd as well but gave up on that after 1 try. Too uncomfortable! Lol
